    I think he meant Bush left us with a huge snowball rolling downhill and it's hard to stop it. At least Obama didn't tell them to "bring it on".

    The Bush Doctrine policy of "preventive war" not only failed to prevent future conflicts in Iraq and the Middle East, but also created a power vacuum that emboldened renegade and genocidal groups like ISIS.

    Sadly, President Bush's September 20, 2001 Address to a Joint Session of Congress now seems like a hopefully nave, almost innocent fantasy compared to the nightmare erupting today in Iraq. Bush's words that day should be the soundtrack for today's televised chaos:


    Our war on terror begins with Al Qaeda, but it does not end there.

    It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.

    Americans are asking "Why do they hate us?''

    They hate what they see right here in this chamber: a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.

    ...Americans are asking, "How will we fight and win this war?''

    ...we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation in every region now has a decision to make: Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.

    ...Our nation, this generation, will lift the dark threat of violence from our people and our future. We will rally the world to this cause by our efforts, by our courage. We will not tire, we will not falter and we will not fail.

    ...Fellow citizens, we'll meet violence with patient justice, assured of the rightness of our cause and confident of the victories to come.

    In all that lies before us, may God grant us wisdom and may he watch over the United States of America.

    That was until Bush Jr. invaded Iraq.

    I never said terrorism was unique to Obama-I said its rapidly expanding under on his watch. On this, we agree.

    So its better that Obama bows and supplicates as it expands even more? I guess thats one way to go.

    Ah yes that canard. Well heres the good news, P. Obama wont be President much longer-and the next one wont cry about his predecessor. Perhaps you can take the opportunity to note what a real POTUS is.

    He didn't bow to Bin Laden or let him go like Bush. We have also eliminated scores of Alqeada leaders during Obama's Administration. Oh and he hasn't allowed any major attacks on US soil while ignoring dire warnings about an attack either. He also has not invaded any Mideast countries spiking terrorist recruiting skyhigh.
    Sometimes it is better to walk softly and carry a big stick.

    Fear not, when it comes to the mess in the Middle East and terrorism anywhere, GW Bush's name will come up no matter how much time has past. It's called "infamy" Actions have consequences and Bush was a man of action, even when he did nothing. Especially when he did nothing. No President but Bush has allowed so many innocent Americans to be killed on his watch. Who could forget that? Or what Political Party he represented?
