    Unlike Hitler, Bush gets to rewrite the history of his leadership, to hide the bad parts and enhance/create the good parts. Astonishing.
    I can't open the link.

Many argue that this bias is unconscious but I think it's just as many times premeditated. It's not just a political or ideological bias either - some are social biases, some are cultural, some are political and some are religious - it really ranges the entire spectrum.

    The fact that another terrorist attack hadn't happened (at least not on the scale of 9/11) under GW. Bush's watch in a post-9/11 era has more to do with the fact that our security agencies woke the f*** up and have remained vigilant. Even under President Obama, the CIA/FBI have halted a few terrorist plots. You're implying that radical Islam has become more emboden since Obama came into office. I wouldn't agree with that at all. Radial Islam is still trying to cause chaos on our shores and abroad, but I don't see another terrorist plot unfolding on U.S. soil anywhere near the scale of 9/11 again if at all...provided our national security agencies continue to keep their eyes and ears open and act on every lead no matter how outlandish it may seem to some. Except for this Ft. Hood shooting spree which was very unfortunate (and IMO very likely could have been avoided), I'd say they've done a good job.

    Does it make him better or smarter than Obama? Hell no but the little mentally challenged downs syndrome 6 year boy old next door is. He just lacks Obama's education and line of Shiite and ability to lie convincingly. I will say that the way Obama is trying to kiss Muslim butt is inviting trouble. Then one day we can all set around and talk about how Obama's trying to rewrite to show he was not the stupid idiot amateur he's been up 'til now. But until it happens I'll just wait and see what does happen next on amateur hour.
    Watch it now...your devil ears are showing. Better tuck them back in so we don't suspect you of being too bias or partisian.

    Mere opinion, and not even authoritative opinion.

    Really? Does that source help?

    I suppose pathetic propaganda networks like Fox will just leave this story be in favour of showing a bunch of pro Republican party crap.

There are good reasons for the things he did that he is excoriated for.

    This pre-emptive attack to discredit his history is just prepping the ideological battlefield.
    Nah.. No one should judge Bush by opinions, they should judge him by actions and results.
    Judging him by ideology should come third to those.

    This is why the liberal left is so up in arms about this -- they cringe at the thought of history seeing them as nothing more than the partisan detractors that they are.
    Dude, when will you realize that all politicians are crooks?

    You are still in the whole left-right spin circle, saying one side is better than the other. They are all crooks, no matter if they are left or right. There are exceptions on both sides.

    Again, their perspective is needed and should be encouraged. There will be legitimacy to their side of the story, but it will debated about how much legitimacy we will give them for generations. Only an idiot would discourage this.
