    I'm gonna lay out some of the brilliance, heroics and political bravery Bush and Cheney displayed from 01-08, and how they actually caused a preemptive defeat of the Dems in the future years. 9-11 was horrendous. Clinton should've killed Bin Laden but didn't. Oh well. Not his fault, no one could fathom those mountain cave dwellers in sheets could pull that off. But he did.

    Bush/Cheney knew all hell was out of the bag. They knew the ONLY answer, the right answer, was to strike back and strike back hard. Everyone thought Iraq had WMD's. Even the Iraqi Army's generals thought on the eve of the war they had them. We were wrong, but no one simply lied. But it's fine, the end result is a good one. Afghanistan was a great campaign until Obama had blown it. But thats another thread. Here is the Bush genius though:

    He knew this war, if fought correctly, would be horrible. Lots of people would die. The media and American people would turn on it because of how bloody and hard it would be. Mistakes would be made, as in all wars. He knew his presidency would take a political beating as a result. He knew that the end result would be Dem's eventually sweeping Congress and the presidency. But he showed the courage and bravery to push through it anyway. Because it was the right thing to do. Even amid the bad war plans, no WMD's, left wing treason, casualties, and the media jihad against him, they stayed the course. The surge worked. But he knew the country as a result would be taken over by left wing radicals swept in by a war weary nation.

    So what did the intelligent Bush admin do? They had the foresight so see the radical lefts duping of the war weary public. So Bush/Cheney had their brilliant plan:

    Slash taxes. Balloon spending. Spend massive amounts of money. All while drastically slashing taxes. The economy would boom for a while, but so would the debt rise. He tried to warn everyone about Fannie and Freddie to avoid a massive collapse, but the left ignored that.

    The end result? He correctly knew the Dems would sweep into office. But he basically crippled them with this huge debt crisis. Making them nearly powerless to bring in their radical, far left socialist dream agenda. 50 years from now George W. Bush may be seen as a savior of this country, only if Obama doesn't destroy it first.

    Now, the Dem's in power can't hardly buy batteries for the government office lamps without getting massive heat from the public for spending. They are basically a castrated government and they can't do but about 10-15% of their socialist utopia dream agenda. Yes, Bush's plan hurt a lot of Americans, but it is the lesser of two evils and he knew it.

    We'll likely recover from this. And one day look back and realize that without the foresight of Bush/Cheney to take action to cripple a future Democratic supermajority, we may have ended up like the USSR or Cuba.

    But the plan worked. We fought Iraq/Afghanistan the right way, and crippled the Dem's to the point that only 18 months in the first black president's approval ratings are at historic lows. He'll be <35% by winter.

    Left wingers, I almost feel sorry for you...............but it appears old Dubya just keeps stickin it to you guys.

    Your whole fucking premise is that they were scumbags enough to cripple the economy on-purpose to put one over on the Dems? Seriously?

    OK, so you're joking right? You're a leftie trying to revisit the whole W era and show what a lousy president Bush was, right?

    Who said the right doesn't "do nuance"? The OP's premise is Bush/Cheney were so clever to put politics above national interest that they engineered all their failures in order to gain political points in the end. That they put the interests of the nation, the lives of our service men and women and the economic health of the globe on the back burner just to stick it to the Liberals. And that's brilliant and heroic.

    Something tells me that someone has crawled into his daddy's liquor cabinet and let his delusions of what is right and wrong flow through his intoxicated fingers for the edification of all of us.

    I think I see what he's saying here.

    The Cheney administration (with it's glad-handing front man Bush) being the good soldiers they are willingly sacrificed their own legacies and the careers of their republican colleagues by fucking things up so badly that them dems would be swept into power and shown once and for all for the fools they are.

    Very clever!
