WTF??!! American Media Fawns Over War Criminal Who Should Be INDICTED

If you've been unlucky enough to catch snippets of the MSM these last few days, you've already noticed the new, sanitized, whitewashed version of recent history being trotted out in earnest by the PTB. You know, to coincide with the Bush Lie-bury dedication in Dallas. Big wingnut money is undoubtedly behind the effort to rewrite the utterly disastrous Bush legacy of death, decay, and financial ruin for millions. The public is being subjected to a blitz of all things BushCo - cozy media interviews with George and Laura, and Dubya himself declaring that he's "comfortable with the actions I took." Comfortable? Comfortable??

Well, Georgie boy, let me tell you who is NOT comfortable: The million+ dead people you and your psychopathic handler Cheney killed due to your illegal, and utterly bogus invasion of Iraq. Formerly a modern country, now a third-world hellhole, thanks to you and your alleged liberation (read: resource grab). Iraq is now so destabilized that the violence that occurs there each day is comparable to a day during the war, with no end in sight.

You lied, manipulated/manufactured "evidence", tortured, killed, and borrowed money this country didn't have to pay for your plundering. You used 9/11, which happened on your watch, to justify invading a country that had nothing to do with it. And that's aside from your probable foreknowledge (at the least) of the event. Then you and your freakshow cohorts in Congress used the same 9/11 to gut American civil liberties. Permanently. Because after all, the "war on terra" goes on forever and ever, doesn't it? At least as long as it's profitable for the MIC and pleasing to Israel, anyway.

Then there are the thousands of dead American soldiers and their families, and the thousands more who have been hideously maimed and disabled - they're not so comfortable, numb-nuts. And of course, we're still in Afghanistan, with absolutely zero good being accomplished for the American public, although it's the public paying billions each week for the pointless quagmire there. But hey, your Halliburton buddies and the other big important defense contractors are making a fucking fortune, so it's all good, right?

Other people who are not comfortable include 97% of Americans, many of whom lost most or all of their savings and retirement in the 2008 meltdown which your administration (read: vipers nest) presided over and helped cause. Or lost their employment. Of course you and your ilk have recovered nicely, due to taxpayer-funded bailouts of those too-big-to-fail monstrosities your cohorts worship so ardently. The rest of us, who continue to get screwed over by your protege Obummer, not so much. And of course Bronco Bama, being the dutiful neo-con tool that he is, will be on hand to lend an air of legitimacy to the shameful spectacle.

 Are you kidding me?? How stupid does the MSM think we are? How can they do this dog-and-pony show with straight faces? How can people listen to this shameful, manipulative garbage without throwing things at the television? Does this crap make you as disgusted as it makes me?

Roots Action says: "We don't need vengeance, but deterrence.  Warrantless spying, imprisonment without trial, secret prisons, assassinations, and illegal wars didn't end with Bush's presidency -- because he's only been rewarded, never punished." They would like you to send a message to Eric Holder, demanding that BushCo be prosecuted as the criminal that he is. If you agree, please add your name here.

One of the shows I try to catch in the evening (I can't recall which one at the moment -- haven't had my coffee yet) posted a graphic about Bush's approval rating -- now, as opposed to when he left office. I was startled to see how extraordinarily higher it is now! Damn, are people's memories that damn bad?

Of course, one guest commentator made a point that possibly explained the wildly improbable increase in his popularity: The unemployment rate then, compared to now, hasn't really changed. Of course, the host countered that we were hemorrhaging jobs at a rate of about 800K/month back then, nowhere near the monthly losses we sometimes see now.

That's true, possibly, but they don't take into account all those who stopped looking for work and just gave up.

I guess when you think about it, at least the MSM is being consistent - after all, they gave him a totally free pass all throughout his bogus reign of disaster, so why should it be different now?

The MSM were complicit tools in the Cheney-BushCo lawlessness, just as they are today.

Jefferson, this relates to the point you made:

Worst President in History....

Didn't notice the postscript until just now.

My apologies...

(Worth an encore, though, don't you think? ;-)

Here's even more to ponder
. Be sure to watch the video from last night's show (scroll down). It's all worth watching, but the Bush Lie-Bury portion starts at 3:00 into the clip.
