Thanks Tom Engelhardt. A rather brief but comprehensive overview of W. and his eight yrs of destruction. It's a terrible shame that those that blindly supported him never bothered to read about his background before voting for him. What else could any intelligent person have expected of him knowing of his previous life of failure and denial. Stupid is as stupid does. The real shortcomings were not so much his as it was of the press and those that elected him. That failure still exists and could repeat itself. Although he may appear to fade into obscurity,the power and wealth he transferred to himself and others will still have catastrophic results in the future. Mark my words.
