Bush's Legacy

Now that he has left office, how should we view President Bush's real legacy? The lunatic Left vilified him for the wrong reasons. Being the grotesque pacifistic losers that they are, they viewed any attempt to protect the U.S. as warmongering. The worst elements among them resorted to obscene name-calling, calling him "Hitler" and such. The deranged ranting of these misfits have no place in a proper assessment.

A proper assessment of his eight years in office must take into consideration the challenges he faced at the start of his tenure, and how he responded to them. After the terrible events of 9/11, Bush had a choice. Either become a spokesman about the dangers of Islam, or continue playing PC games. He chose the latter and decided to parrot the standard nonsense about how a "fringe group of individuals had hijacked a beautiful religion of peace". Despite what his die-hard lackeys maintain, Bush never fought the "war on terror" properly. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were damned because they were grounded on a false premise, the notion that you could bring western democracy to the barbarians of the Middle East. Instead of destroying these animals and sending them back to the Stone Age, the Bush doctrine was one of unrealistic and dangerous nation building. Bush was a cowboy sitting on the wrong end of the horse.

I'm not here to criticize every move he made. After 9/11, there were no terror attacks on American soil. Bush should be applauded for that. But lets look at the looming threats today, now that he has left office. Gaza is Hamastan courtesy of the pressure he put on Israel to expel the Jews out of Gaza (which Israel's flaccid leaders lacked the strength to oppose). And more recently, instead of encouraging Israel to wipe out Hamas during Operation Cast Lead, he pressured them to accept a sham ceasefire. Of course Bush never saw the real danger of Abbas and Fatah, despite the fact that Abbas has the blood of untold numbers of Americans on his hands.

Why would Bush worry about a small satellite of Iran, when he ignored the Iranian nuclear threat? From a purely American perspective, Bush should be judged based on how he dealt with Iran. In the same way that the world was a much more dangerous place after the Clintons (yemach sh'mam) left office, the world is more dangerous now. Bush lacked the courage to destroy the nuclear reactor in Iran. Obama and Clinton will certainly not use the military to take it out, and will instead resort to diplomacy which means Iran will become a nuclear terror. At the end of the day, Bush spoke loudly and carried a wilting reed.

Bush was bad for Israel, but that is no surprise. All presidents are obsessed with brokering a sham peace with the PLO Nazis even if it kills the Jewish state. They've been backstabbing Israel for years. I never expected Bush to pardon Pollard and right a terrible anti-Semitic injustice. It wasn't going to happen. (The real disgrace was the failure of notable religious Jews who were close to the criminal Clintons, to secure Pollard's release, even as the Clintons pardoned a laundry list of the most vile creatures on earth. As if that wasn't enough, the most prominent of these people still shill for Hillary today. Another sad story for another day.)

Obama, Biden, and Clinton will be a disaster for Israel and America. If Bush's war on terror was flawed, see how these three losers deal with it. No doubt about it, Al Qaida is smiling now. As far as Israel is concerned, this has the potential to be a nightmare, Heaven Forbid. Israel will face even greater pressure to kill itself, as Obama and Clinton do everything in their power to strangle Israel to death. Liberal Jews will even applaud as Hillary shows her nauseating constipated smirk and tightens the screws. More on Obama and Clinton later.

Now is not the time for apathy or indifference.
