A Pathetic Figure Worthy of Nothing but Our Contempt

That would be George W. Bush.  He couldn’t come crawling out from under his rock when a democrat was president, but now that a (presumably) outsider republican is the big cheese, look who shows up.  It tells you the desperation of the elite when they bring out the man who would be tried for war crimes in about 180 countries.  Who’s next, Dick Cheney?

Anyway, let’s dive in:

Former President George W. Bush on Wednesday warned against an “isolationist tendency” in the U.S. that he called dangerous to national security…

Much of the world would have been thrilled had Bush held even a modicum of an “isolationist tendency.”  And to speak of dangers to “national security” when the deadliest attack on US soil…in maybe forever…happened on his watch would be comical if it wasn’t so tragic.

…he also alluded to the Iraq War, and warned that there is a lesson “when the United States decides not to take the lead and withdraw,” an apparent critique of former President Barack Obama.

Look, I am not one to come to Obama’s defense – the blood on his hands will never wash off.  But Bush was in Iraq for over 2100 days before he left office – this is 900 days longer than it took the United States to end the War in the Pacific in World War II…and this includes the recovery time after the destruction of Pearl Harbor.

How much time did he want?

“Vacuums can be created when U.S. presence recedes and that vacuum is generally filed with people who don’t share the ideology, the same sense of human rights and human dignity and freedom that we do,” he added.

This would place at least 6.5 billion people in a vacuum (including many Americans), as they do not “share the ideology, the same sense of human rights and human dignity and freedom” when it comes to things like individuals with a penis self-identifying as women…

The article ended with an ounce of truth:

Bush said at the library the nation needed an independent press, but added that it needs to be accurate.

Yes, we need such a press.  I recall a list published a couple of months ago – about 200 alternative sites were identified.  Perhaps George should start looking at a few of these.


  1. "A Pathetic Figure Worthy of Nothing but Our Contempt"

    I tried to guess before reading the article, but there were way too many pathetic figures to pin it down to just one. :(

    1. Yes, I am afraid I could use that title more than once...

    2. BM, have you ever looked into the Constitution Party?

      I'm not sure if I mentioned it here or not, but their pres. candidate, Darrell Castle, seemed pretty good in several areas and certainly embraced the idea of a much smaller government. Definitely a non-pathetic figure in my mind.

      Listed on the issues were anti-U.N., abolishing Federal Reserve, and pro-life; that final one relegated to a state's issue.

      I do not understand why he nor his party gets any mention. Am I missing something?

    3. Brutus

      In my case, I will take the blame. Like many, I got caught up in the drama of Trump / Clinton.

      I had some time for the LP and the anti-war stance of the Greens (if I am now recalling this party correctly).

    4. The Constitution Party seems much better on the war stance than the duopoly:

      {We demand that never again shall United States troops be employed on any foreign field of battle without a declaration of war by Congress, as required by the United States Constitution;

      Congress refuses to fund unconstitutional, undeclared wars pursuant to presidential whim or international obligations under which American sovereignty has been transferred to multi-national agencies.

      The Constitution Party has consistently opposed American involvement in conflicts in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Central and South America. The United States has no interest in these areas which would justify the sacrifice of Americans on foreign battlefields – nor is our country properly cast as a merchant of death in international arms races.

      We propose that the United States cease financing, or arming of belligerents in the world’s troubled areas.}

      They then go on to mention that they support the Monroe Doctrine which, to me, flies a bit in the face of the other beliefs listed above. I thought it decent in regards to foreign restraint, though.

      It seems like their interests could be aligned with libertarians - especially considering the current size of government.

    5. look at W-rong's face --- I don't think he has been sober in 8 years

  2. This guy badmouthing Trump almost makes me think ... . Oh, they are all bad, just in their own unique and horrible ways.

    1. VFP,

      I like your org and have "liked" your FB page. I'm a peacnick and don't, generally, associate with the military, but y'all are awesome.

    2. Thank you very much. I personally need to help some fellow VFPers know that domestic intervention is as bad as foreign, though!

  3. we get exactly what we vote for...and in most cases it is other people's liberty.

  4. ALL the establishment puppets are the same (Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush, Obama, FDR, LBJ, Nixon, etc.). The sooner people figure that out, the sooner the root cause and solution will become obvious.

  5. What's interesting, as bad as Obama has been, I do believe that the majority of the people in this country do indeed hold "W" in contempt. W/o a doubt, he maybe the worst president ever (not saying much). His awful presidency led directly Obama.

  6. Both bastard Bushes are on my list of pricks where I will literally applaud when they do the world a favour and drop ****ing dead.

  7. Suggestion for Trump: George W. Bush is a war criminal, and it is against international law to harbor a war criminal. Have another country bring war crimes charges against Bush, and then hand him over.

    1. Let's not let up on the war crimes charges. Both Clintons should also be handed over to some international tribunal as well as our very own Nobel Peace prize winner and constitutional scholar, Barack Obama. His stature as a man of peace forced him to limit his war crimes to only seven countries. The bright side here is that if John McCain or Hillary were sitting in the Oval Office, the world would be shivering thru a century of nuclear winter. So we do have something to be grateful for.

  8. Another retarded blurb by W:

    “It’s hard to unify the country, though, with the news media being so split up. When I was President, you know, you [TV news channels] mattered a lot more, because there was like, three of you.

    “And now there’s all kinds of information being bombarded out, and people can say things anonymously. It’s just a different world.”
