The White House PR machine keeps making noises about the Bush regime’s “legacy.” This “legacy” will not include any domestic legislation, since there is none to speak of–unless, perhaps, Bush signs a law declaring that the polar bear is an endangered species (so are ordinary Americans, but that’s another story).
Surely, George W. (“I’m the decider”) Bush will be remembered for one thing: the folly of his pre-emptive war in Iraq.
Here’s his legacy:
One: The United States has lost the Iraq War. Bush has failed as Commander in Chief.
Two: The Bush regime has blood on its hands. It’s responsible for at least 25,000 US casualties (killed and wounded).
Three: The United States has spent roughly $400 billion, and counting, to finance this lost cause.
Four: The United States is responsible for exacerbating sectarian war in Iraq and other nations, causing thousands of civilian deaths.
Five: The United States has been diminished in the United Nations and has tarnished its glory around the world.
All of the above prove that Bush has been the most dangerous President in American history.
