Jasonfest saidBiden and Hillary both followed the incompetent President Bush on the Iraq War and the Patriot Act and therefore, caved to terror.
Let us not reward their awful judgement and instead elect Bernie Sanders, who has continuously fought for the people.
I think it's more accurate to say that Bush followed a considerable number of democrats with a difference that 43 wasn't just talk, but did something about it.
I disagree. Many died because of his horrible war and the result was the creation of ISIS. Bernie Sanders predicted this outcome. Even Republicans run away from the Bush name. I think it is very safe to say that he will go down as one of the worst presidents.
What does he have for his legacy? He helped stop the AIDS epidemic in Africa. Which is good, but that might be about it.
Not like we haven't re-litigated this at least 10,000 times on these pages .....
What really helped create ISIS is pulling ALL of our troops out of Iraq. Funny that we see fit to keep troops in Japan and Germany 70 years after the end of war and South Korea for the past 60 years. And I hear this crap that Iraq didn't want us there .... well, neither did Germany or Japan. Tough shit, we're gonna be there until we feel like leaving. After the surge in 2007 and 2008, things had settled down there only to be ruined by pulling our troops out too quickly. "Bernie Sanders predicted this outcome", anyone could have.
Now true, it was mishandled from the start by going in with about 1/4th the number of troops we needed to win the 'war', but not enough there to keep the peace until surge time in 2007. Now this I lay at the feet of 43 and Rumy. Shit, 41 had over a half million just to throw Iraq out of Kuwait
And I still say over time Bush will be ranked in the top 45 presidents.
He's in my top ..... hmmmm hmmmm ..... 15.
