Bush’s “ Liburry ”
By Sherry Pasquarello,CJE – Well, today’s the day. Five Presidents will gather to open the library of George W. Bush. I have always thought that having an entire building for one man’s presidential papers a bit arrogant but that’s just me. The fact that THIS man gets a building to rewrite his time in office, complete with all the newest interactive technology and bells and whistles upsets me.
Oh, the comedians are having a great time with Bush having a library. I admit I laughed at the vision of dozens of empty shelves and one copy of, “MY PET GOAT” sitting there but it was a bitter laugh.
The Bush apologist trolls have been hitting talk radio and right wing television for a week at least and popping up all over social media. A poll taken the other day even has Bush’s approval rating up a few from when he left office.
Really? Do we as a nation suffer from that short of a memory or do we really not CARE that he cost us so much “ blood and treasure” as the pundits have labeled death and disablement and bankrupting?
I’ve heard right wingers calling shows and writing posts saying among other things that lefties crucified Bush while the dust was still clearing in the streets after 9/11. I’m not letting them get away with THAT rewrite. Everyone rallied behind the President right after 9/11. Even other countries stood with him. Oh the flags were out and flying high. Radio stations played that Lee Greenwood song incessantly and everyone sang along. Remember? It wasn’t until the push to invade Iraq that some of us said, “wait a minute”. The people that were brave enough to ask questions were vilified in public. Phil Donahue even lost his job over it.
I’m not even getting to Katrina or the tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy or any of the other ways he screwed us. I’d need my own shelf in his library. So please, if anyone tries to tell you that Bush is a nice guy because he paints a decent portrait of his dog or because he’s a grandpap now, take them by the hand to your nearest V.A. hospital or open up the local newspaper to the foreclosure pages and then ask them their opinion!
