“Yeah, we waterboarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed,” Bush told a Grand Rapids audience Wednesday, of the self-professed 9/11 mastermind. “I’d do it again to save lives.”

President Obama says “We can’t go backwards”
Ex-President and Unindicted war criminal George W. Bush is basically saying “Why not go backwards, look at the wonderful legacy I have left you!”
Yeah, those were WAR CRIMES, the kind Reagan forbid and made illegal under US law, but, now that you have reminded us that the only thing in your legacy that you want to remind us of is how torture worked in your book, I say we encourage George W. to keep talking. Keep reminding us of that legacy, Georgie, cause you sure didaheckuvajob.
More below the fold
George W. Bush’s casual acknowledgment Wednesday that he had Khalid Sheikh Mohammed waterboarded — and would do it again — has horrified some former military and intelligence officials who argue that the former president doesn’t seem to understand the gravity of what he is admitting.
Waterboarding, a form of controlled drowning, is “unequivocably torture”, said retired Brigadier General David R. Irvine, a former strategic intelligence officer who taught prisoner of war interrogation and military law for 18 years.
8 years of legacy and strategery and all we got was that sutpid torture, these stupid wars, this stupid financial clusterf*ck, that stupid Katrina response, stupid tax cuts for the rich, stupid deficits, stupid unemployment, stupid, stupid and more stupid.
So, please, George W. Bush, build your legacy. Now is the time to remind us that after 8 long years, the thing you are most proud of is your claim that torture worked. Bush gave us legal torture, Obama gave us health care reform. Remind America about that.
And remind America about this stuff too
The almost 3 years Bush spent on vacation at his ranch in Texas and Camp David during office.
“My pet goat”
WMD’s in Iraq
The outing of a CIA agent in the field
Tax cuts for the rich
Turning Clinton’s record surplus into a huge deficit
Everything that Dick Cheney did, including the guy he shot in the face
Justice Roberts and the Corporatist Supreme court
More tax cuts for the rich
The non response and drowning of NOLA during Hurricane Katrina
Trying to sell US port security to the United Arab Emirates
The near collapse of the world economy due to deregulation
The no strings attached bailouts Bush and his Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson came up with
The energy meetings Bush and Cheney had that allowed BP’s current disaster to happen
The unemployment and record deficits Bush left behind as part of his legacy.
Bush/Cheney’s WAR CRIMES
ooh, and apparently, “Waterboarding worked”
and countless more terribly stupid and incompetent things I can’t even think of right now. THAT is how bad Bush was.
and then there are these . . .
and these . . .
and this . . .
Yes, so please, continue to come out and remind America about how you would “Do it again” if only we would go backwards and put Republicans back in power.
Build that legacy, and start today! America might forget about you and your amazing legacy of FAIL!
And we need to remind America that the GOP has amazingly managed to get even DUMBER since this moron left office.
Peace, and may the gods help us all
