    Re: Is George W. Bush a Racist?

    I don't know what his personal disposition is, but I never saw any substantial evidence that he was racist during his time in office. I voted no. As Captain American said, he's just a Texan.

    It's also worth noting that one of the only good ideas he ever had a far as I'm concerned were his ideas about how to deal with the border and the worker program - something that was of benefit to Latinos. Bush finally had a good idea, and that was the one time everyone decided to ignore him. *sigh*

    He IS a good artist and a pretty decent rapper. The thing is, being a good artist and being a douchebag are not mutually exclusive.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    He lacks the intellect to be a racist.

    He's no racist. Just a moron.

    I don't know Bush, but to his credit he was probably no bigot. Even as he ramped up wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, he repeatedly reminded America that Islam is a religion of peace. In addition, he increased aid to Africa, and he pushed immigration reform. The guy might have been a terrible President, but if he's a bigot, his tenure does not reflect it.

    Two mutually exclusive things there.

    You mean like the words "interesting" and "hockey"?

    The first disagreement of the day..
    IMO, the more intellect a man has, this less likely he is to be a racist.
    And I do not think that Bush the younger was a "moron"....maybe not as smart as President Obama, but "smarts" are not the only thing..
    We are all open to racism...the thing to do is to know this and keep it under control.

    Reminds me of an old saying:
    "He's not gay. He's British."

    I don't think we'll ever see Bush kissing a black person on the lips but he would not go out of his way to do harm to anyone simply because of their race.
    Well now, he gave the Saudi king a big kiss on the lips, and Arabs are dark-skinned. GWShiiteForBrains may be a liar, torturer, murderer, drugger, AWOL scumbag, but he is surely not a rascist.
