Watching the debates or reading about this presidential campaign, one might think that George W. Bush’s presidency never happened. There is almost no mention of him anywhere. His policies failed and are still being felt by this country. He inherited a budget surplus and left office with a deficit. He de-emphasized government organizations such as FEMA and allowed New Orleans to drown. He went into Iraq before finishing with Afghanistan and left a quagmire… and with many more terrorists in the Middle East. He pushed for greater financial de-regulation which resulted in a collapsed economy.
And what is the Republican response to the above. Either no mention of his name or whispers that he wasn’t “conservative” enough. Or worse, such as trying to blame the financial collapse on Obama. Instead of a little introspection, the GOP wants to double down on Bush mistakes. I shudder to think of what will happen to this country if a Republican wins the presidency.
