Any defense of George Bush
gets My Pet Goat.
When George W. Bush ended his term in office, he quietly went away. That was the appropriate thing to do. His fellow conservatives spent some time trying to defend his Administration, then decided to just not mention him again. This was also expedient, considering the state of the State. But unfortunately, there is a modern tradition of providing every former President with a Presidential Library. So where the agreed approach to the Bush legacy was to defend, then remain silent, the dedication of the Bush Library necessitates the reverse. Mr. Bush has been obliged come out of relative silence to defend his Administration’s policies.

at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX.
A 'nucular' depository of revisionist political horse crap.
The Library dedication creates an uncomfortable feeling for liberals, who opted to not swallow the memory loss Kool-Aid, and who have waited long frustrating years to see some comeuppance for the considerable damage done during the Bush Era. The George W. Bush Presidential Library offers no relief. It creates a conservative fantasy of the Bush Administration suggesting that poor George did absolutely the best he could under unusually stressful circumstances. Visitors can play the Decision Points Game, which forces the player to view limited data and then come to the same decisions that Mr. Bush himself made. If the player does not arrive at the same decision, a video of George himself pops up and explains why the player is wrong. It is revisionist and offensive, and in keeping with Neo-Con tradition, dishonest.

people felt he left storm victims high and dry.
But the facts do exist, they are just not on display. The MCR Newsletter has exclusive access to archival material in the George W. Bush Presidential Library. Thanks to the support of sympathetic felines (Mittens, we owe you one) we are able to show you some Bush Era documents that you will not see exhibited any time soon.
Mr. Bush has said that history will be his judge. Millions of people world-wide who still live daily with the negative impact of his decisions believe the jury is already in. This time around you be The Decider!
