    No I wouldn't.

    Bush was attacked and maligned for 8 years by a Democrat party and a media who was more loyal to their narratives than the truth.

    The idea that he was stupid or a simpleton was a Democrat fed fale narrative and so many otherwise intelligent and objective Americans bought into it.

    Why do you think he's a simpleton ? Because of his southern accent ?

    I'm a proud Southern Boy with a Southern accent and I promise you I'm no simpleton.

    That's relevant.
    You can't be seriously suggesting that we ignore things the current president does because of things a prior president did? That is incredibly immature and divisive and NOT helping anyone in any way.

    No, what we have to do is acknowledge that Bush and Obama are not treated equally. We have to acknowledge that what Bush did was a million times worse, and people are like, "Well, Bush and Obama are about the same...".

    You want to nail Obama on something? Fine. Just don't pretend that you are a moderate when you give Bush/Cheney a pass because they're out of office.

    What did Pres. Bush lie about?

    If anything, I would say he was far and away the most straight forward POTUS in my lifetime.

    When compared to the liar in chief we have now.... any sane person could come to the same conclusion.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Not at all. I am going by the tone of your post. You essentially said, 'Well, everyone was mad about 9/11, so the invasion is whatever... all water under a bridge.'

    Obama is not judged by the same standards as Bush. If he were, then we wouldn't be having this discussion.
