George W. Bush: Vindicated

President George W. Bush
No matter how badly President Obama is doing, the loud leftist crowd will continue to shout: Bush Lied. People Died.

The Left, the Desperate Dems, and every liberal interest group not interested in the truth is going to jump up and down to distract an demean anyone who points out that President Obama lied repeatedly about his signature legislation, the Affordable Care Act.

Because they cannot defend their President (Obama), they will readily fall back on their easiest pastime and indict President Bush about the War in Iraq, as if that invasion then justifies the expansion of the federal government into our health care system today, and even supports the massive, comprehensive failure of health insurance companies and the rationing of available health care in the future.

But let us assume that the argument about Bush and the War in Iraq is a meaningful retort, as though President Bush's "fraud and deceit" justifies our not paying attention to the current Commander in Chief, who has made excuse after excuse hiding away his poor leadership and laying it at the threshold of the prior administration.

The truth is that President George W. Bush did not lie the United States into war with Iraq.

Five separate intelligence agencies had concluded that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction (WMD)

To this day, the British Government stands by the assertion that there were WMD in the country.

Two of the countries with concurring intelligence, Germany and France, refused to send troops into Iraq, even though they believed that the country had the weapons.

Now, USA Today did publish these findings in 2004, which began with the following statement:

When the United States invaded Iraq last year to disarm Saddam Hussein's regime, there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq or any facilities to build them, according to a definitive report [The Dueler Report] released Wednesday.

However, the report proved not to be definitive, as the Washington Post issued the following in 2005:

BAGHDAD, Aug. 13 -- U.S. troops raiding a warehouse in the northern city of Mosul uncovered a suspected chemical weapons factory containing 1,500 gallons of chemicals believed destined for attacks on U.S. and Iraqi forces and civilians, military officials said Saturday.

For the record, this article was published in the same Washington Post which brought down the Nixon Administration, and the same paper which Associate Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia cannot bear to read because of its "shrilly, shrilly liberal" content.

There's more:

Combined, the chemicals would yield an agent capable of "lingering hazards" for those exposed to it, Boylan said. The likely targets would have been "coalition and Iraqi security forces, and Iraqi civilians," partly because the chemicals would be difficult to keep from spreading over a wide area, he said.

Ouch!

Then the report ends with:

No chemical weapons are known to have been used so far in Iraq's insurgency. Al Qaeda announced after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States that it was looking into acquiring biological, radiological and chemical weapons. The next year, CNN obtained and aired al Qaeda videotapes showing the killings of three dogs with what were believed to be nerve agents.

In contrast to President Obama, who has been drawing red lines against tyranny, only to watch targeted dictators redden Obama's faux-boundaries further with the blood of insurgents, as well as redden with shame the foreign policy corps of the Obama Administration, President Bush talked tough to terrorism and did not wink at evil. One wonders what Saddam Hussein would have perpetrated if Al Gore or John Kerry won the White House in 2000 and 2004 respectively.

But if the dueling coverage from national newspaper media is not enough, then the Wikileaks cables, released by notorious espionage narcissist Julian Assange, confirm that American troops continued searching for weapons of mass destruction, finding caches of weapons agents throughout Iraq. The amounts of toxins alone outline that Saddam Hussein was prepping for another comprehensive weapons program. One statement from the Wired.com summary bears reposting:

Nearly three years later [2005], American troops were still finding WMD in the region. An armored Buffalo vehicle unearthed a cache of artillery shells “that was covered by sacks and leaves under an Iraqi Community Watch checkpoint. “The 155mm rounds are filled with an unknown liquid, and several of which are leaking a black tar-like substance.” Initial tests were inconclusive. But later, “the rounds tested positive for mustard.”

How about that?

Recently, the questions emerge as to how Syria got its chemical weapons, too. Accounts from former Hussein officials, as well as accounts from Middle East reporters argue strongly that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein took Bush's threats of invasion seriously enough, that he had his WMD moved into Syria.

While this allegation remains open to conjecture, the outspread violence in Syria, with incoming reports of deaths from chemical weapons, strongly suggest that prior accounts of Iraq-Syria WMD trafficking are legitimate.

Wow! Kind of puts a damper on the whole "Bush lied. People died" mantra, doesn't it?!

If Bush had been lying about the reasons for going into Iraq, why would classified documents record that American forces were still searching for WMD? These clandestine operations were to remain under utmost secrecy, yet inadvertently this negative breach of security exposes that President Bush was not a fraud. And that President Obama has presided as one of the most ineffective chief executives in modern times, so much so that military and diplomatic espionage better defines the absentee-elitist Obama Administration more than any successful military operations. Osama Bin Laden is dead, but what else is dying in the Middle East? Stable regimes sympathetic to Israel, plus any hopes of brokering a lasting peace in which hostile Arab states recognize the Jewish state's right to exist.

Let us not forget the the Democratic National Convention's voting electorate's attempt to strip away any recognition of Jerusalem as the rightful capital of Israel. Practicing his adept comfort with extralegal maneuvers, perhaps, Obama pressured for the Jerusalem platform to remain, despite the loud boos erupting from the DNC floor.

Bush lied, people died? No. Obama lies, and a lot has died with it? Yes.

Without Bush as a convenient foil, and with their popularity index plunging, President Obama and the Democrats in Washington (and throughout the country) are desperate for anyone else to attack (The Koch Brothers) or any other hollow indictment ("war" on women, minorities, homosexuals, etc) and impugn these strawmen as meager distractions from the failed Democratic, progressive policies which the Democrats themselves can no longer support.

"Obama Lies, Health care dies" -- that mantra has a much better ring to it: truthful (or "truthiness" for those still hankering after Bush) as well as current, and even the marginalized mainstream media cannot spin the pain and suffering caused by the unaffordable Affordable Care Act.

Now, I am waiting for the moment when Democrats starting blaming George W. Bush for Obamacare, too. That will be too much to pass up, although I am sure that they will try to pass it by, if they haven't already.

  1. Vindicated? You are a fucking imbecile, falling for the Bush/Cheney image-cleansing tour. Would you like some of Dubya's paintings, too? You are a one-of-a-kind stupid, Artie--a truly stupid buffoon who swallows the right-wing whackjob-o-sphere's bullshit hook, line and sinker. While your idol Dubya fucked up the whole "smoke him out" thing---remember that, asshole?---Obama actually--you know--smoked him out. Oh, and millions of Americans love the ACA, and we think people like you can Go. Fuck. Yourselves.

    1. Yourselves is plural-- I am one person. Now that Bush cannot be blamed for every scandal under the sun bursting out of the Obama Administration, I guess you will mention the Koch Brothers. Why not throw in Rob Lowe and the Rob Schneider, too -- the Hollywood Left is starting to see the light and vote right.

      Good times. Good times.

  2. Julian Assange must be a conservative, since his espionage so assisted Bush. Wow, Lee! Are you mad? I find your insult-curse laden rants quite entertaining now. Are you a comedian too? Maybe you and Bill Maher should do a show together -- oh, wait, the ratings are already tanking, like with MSNBC. Obama lied, Lee cried, and I did not even have to try.

    Thanks for reading!

  3. Rob Schneider? Rob Lowe? Wow, Artie, you've got your lips all over that Breitbart California ass, don't ya, douche? They--just like the dead skunk they all worship--are desperate for "Hollywood approval". I guess Schneider has "cred" to you righties---D-listers always do. As to Lowe, I heard he said something righties like, but couldn't give a good goddamn. I suppose you might think he's pretty, though.
    Art,the Iraq-to-Syria weapons shit was debunked long ago. You might want to refresh your browser, you moron. It is funny that an ignorant stooge such as you is now claiming that conservative bogeyman Assange was in possession of some kind os "proof" for your argument--which you apparently share with Fox "News" felon Ollie North. As to your mangling of the English language--"yourselves is plural, I am one person"---reread this, asshole, and take a fucking grammar lesson: "Oh, and millions of Americans love the ACA, and we think people like you can Go. Fuck. Yourselves."
    Get it now, fuckwad?

  4. Lee, I won't be quite as hard on Arthur as you tonight, but I concur; the idea that Dumbya is now "vindicated" (cough, cough--WAR CRIMINAL) and Arthur's use of the health care law/Obama Lies! line as a hook are total bullshit. But that's what I love about Arthur--he is reliably idiotic and reading his bullshit is a bit of a way to kill time in airports and hotels. He's blog porn, I guess--dumb, amateurish, fringy and fucking hilarious!

  6. A literal sampling of "SQ Magazine" :

    Wrestling fans were dealt the shock of the century at last night’s Wrestlemania XXX when The Undertaker’s unbeaten streak at sports entertainment’s biggest event was ended by Brock Lesnar. They didn’t take the scripted defeat that well.
    The Undertaker was odds-on favourite to defeat Lesnar – yes, you can bet real money on professional wrestling – and go ’22-0′ in Wrestlemania matches but Brock, a former UFC World Heavyweight Champion, stunned the world and pinned the 49-year-old ‘deadman’.

    Ah, yes, Arthur--I see the mutual benefit--fictional bullshit attracts other fictional bullshit! Well done!

  7. Speaking of the Koch Bros (or, as you spell it here, "Kock"--must be Freudian, eh, Artie?), here's some stunning hypocrisy from America's sleaziest billionaire bros:

    Charles and David Koch may have spent millions of dollars opposing President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, but that didn’t stop them from benefiting from the law. The Associated Press reported on Tuesday that Koch Industries received $1.4 million in subsidies from a $5 billion program established by the Affordable Care Act to help employers and states maintain coverage for individuals 55 and older who are not yet eligible for Medicare.
    ThinkProgress first noticed that Koch applied for the program in August of 2010, along with other critics of the law, including state-run programs in Texas and more than a dozen members of the board of directors of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has spent millions to support Republican causes.
    Ironically, in 2011, House Republicans issued a press release characterizing the early retiree grants as “a $5 billion bailout fund for state governments, Fortune 500 companies, and Hollywood unions.” “Like many provisions and accounting gimmicks in the health care law, it has largely escaped public scrutiny because of the sheer volume of programs and spending crammed into the law without scrutiny or Congressional oversight,” the Republicans on the Energy and Commerce Committee wrote a year after Koch and other prominent funders applied and received grants from the program.
    The Early Retiree provision resembles one passed by Republicans in 2003, which gave subsidies to employers who offered drug coverage to their retirees before the Medicare Part D program went into effect in 2006. As the New York Times explained, the goal then was the same as it is today, “to discourage those employers from terminating those programs, which would have saddled the government and seniors with higher costs.”
    This isn’t the first time critics of the law have taken advantage of its provisions. Just last week, Republican members of Congress praised the Obama administration for keeping open a call center dedicated to enrolling people into the law after the initial enrollment period, while others have requested grants funded under the ACA. Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) even encouraged some Texans to sign-up for coverage in the federally-run health care exchange in an effort to save the state money.

    Ah, right-wingers: an endless cesspool of shit-covered schmucks.

  8. President George W. Bush had nothing to hide. He was right and he dealt with 9/11with great composure amongst the unreal acts of terrorism against the United States of America. everyone knows Iraq was harboring weapons of mass destruction and they move them prior to the United States attacking them. the reason President Obama and his misguided followers play the blame game is because they know nothing about Barack Obama. Who is he and where did he come from? Why are all his records sealed??? He is as sick as a secrets and his administration is a mockery to our country. Many of them deserve to be tried and convicted for treason and accessory to murder including Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton! And don't get me started on Obamacare. After working as a nurse for a group of the cardiologists doing clinical research for 19 years prior to my disability I could see the changes starting. It is a complete disaster and many people have lost the insurance policies that he promised they could keep!!! Additionally I do not like the fact that they are going to charge my adult children higher interest rates for their student loans in order to pay for those who cannot afford health insurance!!! No one can blame Bush for that absolute stupidity! anyone believe what that fraud of a president Barack Obama says is a fool. Many people who believe what Obama says I cannot think for themselves. I believe it's time for Obama and his cronies to be brought to justice for treason. We the People deserve better leadership! everything he does is unconstitutional and we do not need someone like that as our president!!!

    1. "Where did he come from"? You need a sanity hearing.

    2. Thanks Karen, for sharing your thoughts. Time to impeach Obama. But first House and Senate must have members who respect the Constitution and will demand that the President be held to answer for his scandals, frauds, perversions, failures, losses, etc.

  10. Michael Moore is a crock-umentarian. Farenhype 9-11 was thoroughly discredited, by veterans, Democrats, and parents.

    And you cannot argue with Wikileaks cables.

  11. Michael Moore has no integrity. He has been dubbed a "crock-umenatarian". Farenhype 9-11, "Michael Moore is a Big, Fat, Stupid, White Mam" and Celsius 41.11 all debunked his propaganda hype.

    Frankly, Bush's show of camaraderie commands more respect. Moore's "faux-umenatary" came out in 2004 -- WP reported in 2005, then Wikileaks released in 2010. Thank you.
