You've got to hand it to George H.W. Bush: he can lie better than his hellspawn.
Defending the Shrub at an Arab leadership conference, Bush Sr. lied, "My son is an honest man." This would be laughable, if it weren't so tragic. There are numerous books, intel reports, former and current government officials, and news reports exposing George W. Bush as the pathological liar he really is.
It's only natural for a father to want to defend his son from critics. But Pappy Bush wasn't just defending his brat from critics; he was lying in an attempt to salvage the Bush crime family's chances of successfully carying out future thefts of the U.S. presidency.
Daddy Bush went on, apparently to explain how his feelings get hurt every time someone dares to tell the truth about his traitorous whelp. I can almost hear the violins screeching out a pitiful dirge.
Lying to the American public on a daily basis; negligently allowing a terrorist attack to happen on American soil that resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans; abandoning the hunt for the people responsible; invading a country that had nothing to do with 9/11, and that posed no threat to us; turning the U.S. into a fascist police state; driving the U.S. to economic ruin; negligently allowing hundreds to die in the disaster of Hurricane Katrina; manipulating intel; gutting the Constitution; helping to out a CIA operative...these crimes and many more have been committed by George W. Bush and his equally treasonous regime.
Yet we're supposed to shed a tear for the Old Man, who is guilty of treason himself for helping Ronald Reagan sell weapons to Iran and then use the profits to fund the Nicaraguan contras. We're supposed to believe the crocodile tears of a lying son of a traitor, who has committed treason himself, and whose demonic get has committed treason.
And what of Iraq, the invasion of which Junior launched with absolutely no care at all for the consequences? According to a U.N. report, Iraqis are both dying and fleeing the country in record numbers, as reported by Reuters.
Junior and his pals wanted to invade Iraq so they could control world oil proces and make obscene profits for themselves and the U.S. oil industry. They did so not caring how many people would die, or lose their homes, or suffer from disease and malnutrition. They did so for no other reason than greed. And now the country is in far worse shape than it ever was under Saddam Hussein.
It's enough to make one vomit. Happy Thanksgiving.
