Let me try to sum up 2001 - 2008 and what transpired during the Bush Administration as succinctly as I can


1) An immoral and unjustified war was launched at the urging of the Vice President, resulting in untold billions in profits for the Vice President's firm.

2) An epic and historic financial ponzi scheme was developed by Goldman Sachs' CEO (who would later become Treasury Secretary), which then of course implodes spectacularly, resulting in untold billions in bonuses, profits and direct transfers from the taxpayer for the Treasury Secretary and his firm.

3) They got an blistering idiot installed as President to do their bidding

4) They secured a news network in order to report falsehoods and propaganda as the truth, reported by hot women in short skirts, which was eagerly consumed by a dumbed down society

The end.

Hahahahahah; love that skirt shot.

Why not just come out bottomless?

Think of how we could have finessed our 9/11 sympathy, and instead swaggered and bullied; lorded over and demanded.

Now where are we?

Sure; the people in charge made out fabulously, and never squandered an opportunity to crow, brag, and rub our noses in it.

Reap what you sow.

I would add Big Oil/OPEC windfall profiteering to the list.

That was *Job One* for these tools.

From $15/bbl to $150/bbl is one HELL of a dubious achievement.

Trillion$ in overcharges.

Mission Accomplished?

It ain't over yet...

CLAWBACK!

Well, the majority of the ass-head Americano voted for this Dude and his sidekicks 8 years, 2 terms in a row. The Americano is now paying for their stupidity. The chicken are coming home to roost at last, baby... You are going to pay for this FUBAR pretty bad.

You forgot Ben Bernanke's picture.

Unfortunately, there's a lot more to it than that...

Family of Secrets - The Bush Dynasty, the Powerful Forces That Put It in the White House, and What Their Influence Means for America by Russ Baker.

Until we understand the Bushes and their extended intelligence/corporate networks we will continue to have presidents that serve the corporate elite and use the American taxpayer as their personal slaves.

With BofA CEO Lewis's testimony, I think something is about to blow.

The actions of Bernanke and Paulson are way out of line. They're acting like the "mafia". In fact, they are worse than the mafia because they are operating under the color of government authority.

I heard a rumor that Goldman Sachs is either a buyer or seller in almost half the transactions on the stock exchange. Half the transactions. These last two months have been a sham.

America is corrupt.

Stock market is rigged.

This whole mess has to be a conspiracy. Wall St., Washington DC, and Main St. are walking into every mistake they can possibly make. It's as if they want to destroy every bit of confidence we have left.

They destroyed an empire in 8 years while the retarded masses cheered them on. Now they installed another straw man in the White House to finish the job.
The problem with a democracy is that ignorant people are in the majority.

OMG! I can't believe this crap. This should be on your front page, Keith.


PrepareMetroKC - The Seven Signs of TerrorismThis is unbelievable and ludicrous. This is exactly what the purpose of the false flag attack on 9/11 was. To bring about a police state in the USA and globally. We're seeing the same move towards militarization of the police and establishing civilian security corps (like Obama is advancing with the G.I.V.E Act) all around the globe. The UK, Australia, Canada and the US.

I did not vote for Bush and did not agree with anything his administration did.

However, please note that Bush could not have done it without the assistance of Congressional Democrats - to include your beloved Barry.

To Barry's credit, I will admit that he did not vote in favor of giving Bush the power to go forward in Iraq, but he go along with a lot of the other crap.

I was warning people about Bush's bumbling hackery back in 2003, when, among other things, this article on the Arrogant Empire came out:

http://www.fareedzakaria.com/articles/newsweek/032403.html

My republidiot friends called me an idiot.

One friend said "well if bush is going to war in iraq, and can't make a case for why, then he must have some reaons that he can't tell us because they are too secret/high-security."

Um, NO, more like, he's got reasons, but if he told you, you'd STOP BLINDLY SUPPORTING BUSH AND HIS PRIVATE WAR FOR PROFIT!!!!

You gotta admit though, it DID get him a second term. And he WAS able to trick, stymy, con, confound, thwart, marginalize, or otherwise harrass quite a few more-intelligent, more-patriotic, more-honest, more-well-meaning democrats in Congress, at least for a few more years after that.

That's all over now.

NOW who's the idiot???

Here are some examples:

Excellent summation! Minus the energy/oil windfall profiteering mentioned by Fools R Us, but that would have been too perfect.

Still need to remind folks that the majority of Americans did not vote for Bush. Voter fraud put him in there (true, the elections were close enough he could pull this off). Nonetheless, that someone of his caliber could have occupied the White House for 8 years is something most of us will simply never get over.

"To Barry's credit, I will admit that he did not vote in favor of giving Bush the power to go forward in Iraq, but he go along with a lot of the other crap."

Not so fast. While he did not voter for the initial insurgence into Irag, BO did vote on about 6 occasions after he took office in the Seante to give more funds to the war effort in Iraq. Yes he voted in favor during and after his move into office in 2005. Yes 2005 is the correct year. By 2005 the anti war attitude was well established, Bush was taking a lot of criticism for the war lasting longer than it was suppposed to, and yes Obama voted a number of times to extend funding for the war in Iraq. I find it bad taste to say that he has been against something, campaign against something, and vote in favor of it.

I refuse to be made a fool of by this man.

Disclaimer: I am not a right wing hack job. I do not endorse Bush by writing this post

LMAO. Obama votes for the tarp bailout too. If things were just so simple.

The Washington Post, Dec 2007 -- Hill Briefed on Waterboarding in 2002
In Meetings, Spy Panels' Chiefs Did Not Protest, Officials Say

In September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was given a virtual tour of the CIA's overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk.

Among the techniques described, said two officials present, was waterboarding, a practice that years later would be condemned as torture by Democrats and some Republicans on Capitol Hill. But on that day, no objections were raised.

With one known exception, no formal objections were raised by the lawmakers briefed about the harsh methods during the two years in which waterboarding was employed, from 2002 to 2003, said Democrats and Republicans with direct knowledge of the matter. The lawmakers who held oversight roles during the period included Pelosi and Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) and Sens. Bob Graham (D-Fla.) and John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.)
I don't expect the angry lesbo from MSNBC, Bill Maher, and Olbermann to address this.

The whole economic mess started under Clinton, with the repeal of the Glass-Stengal act in 1994.
Say what you want about Bush (everything you say is true, by the way), but I don't see Obama doing anything different then Bush was doing when he left office.
