US Citizens: While the news will dis Obama on this election eve, remember these things bush and fellow rethuglicans did during the reign of Bush terror . 1. Misled the country into invading Iraq, t shifting justifications thruought —weapons of mass destruction ? (no), link to Al Qaeda? (no) , democracy for Iraq? not quite yet
2. Spent $7.4 million per HOUR on the Iraq invasion and occupation. (Think: skyrocketing national debt, shameless war profiteering, and how much health care $7.4 million per hour buys.)
3. claiming the mission was accomplished…yes for his buddy’s at helliburton,blackwater, and the oil industry but screw the rest of us humans.
4. Failed to respond to the Hurricane Katrina crisis. “Many of the people … were underprivileged, anyway,” said Mrs. Barbara Bush. what an ass she exposed herself to be.
5. Allowed the use of torture- the Abu Ghraib photos proved that.
6. Ignored the August 6, 2001 memo advising “bin Laden determined to strike in U.S.” Later: “I don’t know where he [Osama bin Laden] is. I just don’t spend that much time on him.” Also, disbanded the CIA’s bin Laden task force.
7. Turned a sympathetic world against the United States in the wake of 9/11.
8. Fought tooth-and-nail to prevent the establishment of the 9/11 Commission.
9. Wiretapped Americans without warrants.
10. Signed more than 750 “signing statements,” and asserted he could ignore part or all of any law being passed.
11. Refused to even contemplate any kind of energy policy that might lower gas prices and reduce America’s dependency on foreign oil. (And remember how high gas prices were during Bush’s second term?)
12. rammed ”Us against them” down our throats .
most of this is from:http://failuremag.com/index.php/failure_analysis/article/bush_says_biggest_failure_not_privatizing_social_security
If we let these rethugs take over or STEEL their spots as our reps in govt. again things like undermining social security, repealing the minimum wage and health care reform ,attempting to impeach President Obama and uniting church and state are at the top of their list .
my next post will be about positive things to remember that Obama’s admin has accomplished thus far.- Lady kier
