The other day I started thinking about the legacy of George W. Bush. I thought about the terrible loss of life in Iraq; over 600,000 Iraq civilians and over 3,000 US military personnel to-date since we toppled Saddam Hussein’s regime. And surely the horrendous unrest and turmoil that very well may continue long after our civilization is gone. Is this the Bush legacy?
The United States has been divided between Red states and Blue states and those who used to be for the Iraq war and those who never were. Our liberties have been eroded more than at any time since the founding of our nation. Secrecy has been developed into a perfect art form by Bush and his administration. Illegal entry into our country by Mexicans was allowed to continue unabated. New Orleans turned to Washington during a time of grave crises. The response from Bush was merely a photo op. The erosion of America’s middle class. Bush has spent over $500 Billion on the Iraq war to-date. Is this the Bush legacy?
As always, your comments are welcome.
