Let's be honest. Texas, probably the greatest state in the Union, would be a tinder box if Bush hadn't cleared all that brush. I understand he did it on his own dime, too. Not like Obama's $200M/day field trip to over shadow Mandela.

Kind of the same way Bill Clinton makes "conservatives" foam at the mouth?

Yea, I see that.

George W. Bush is a war criminal.  This is objective fact.

Would it be OK with you if they gave this award to Osama bin Laughin'?

No?

Why not?  Because he killed a lot of people?

George w. bush killed a LOT more people than Osama bin Laughin'.

Of course, since you're a wingnut, you value non-American lives at zero.  Fine.  Even if we only count Americans, george w. bush still killed a LOT more people than Osama bin Laughin'.

You're crying your eyes out because we called george w. bush a criminal (which he is), but we're the ones who are butthurt.

If George W. Bush is a criminal for launching the Iraq War, he at worst joins an esteemed list of U.S. Presidents in the waging of unnecessary, misguided or outright shamefully predatory wars. I don't see us or the international community clamoring to demolish monuments to McKinley, Wilson and Polk (to name a few of the more egregious offenders).

They gave Barack "drone strike" Obama a peace prize. Those sort of awards are clearly meaningless now, who really cares?

The former president was scheduled to receive an award from the university in September for "improving the human condition."

I mean really, it takes balls to be this willfully ignorant of the past.

I think the person or persons who proposed this should be caned, it's so brazenly gauche.

In fairness, Obama didn't have the time to do a lot of droning before he got the peace prize.

Dubya screwed up so bad that America elected a Muslim, Communist, Fascist, Nazi, Socialist, Kenyan Negroid to replace him. That takes some doing.

The award should include a one-way ticket to Fallujah.

Hey, the surviving Iraqis should get to 'thank' him in person.  Like Mussolini..
 
2013-07-07 03:05:42 AM  
The university still plans to give President Bush an award. They're just going to rename it.

The "Ohh, You!" Award?

Obama got the Nobel for winning a presidential election based on a platform of pulling out of Iraq. That's all he had to do to get the Nobel.

Which kinds of points out how farked up Bush's policies were in the eyes of the world.

I almost LOL'd at thenaivety. Really? Perpetual war in the Afghan-Pak theater won a Nobel prize because we've narrowed our militaryendeavors by one country? Good thing we didn't continue bombing people in Yemen, Somalia or Libya.

Nor should he; I presume a time machine would be an invaluable national security asset. What I would suggest, rather, is that international praise wait to be bestowed until an individual has proven themselves beyond the simple title of "Not George W. Bush".

Much as I absolutely thought that guy was a useless jackoff, his no-fly zone on northern Iraq saved the Kurds.  They would have been exterminated by Saddam before the run-up to the war, otherwise.  So yeah, he did manage to do a few things REALLY right, and in those things, saved a lot of people.

The funny thing is, the hillbilly stuff is an act.  Dude was actually an East Coast blue blood son of a millionaire congressman, born in Connecticut, who went to prep schools, Yale and then Harvard.

The polar opposite of a hillbilly, but half the voters in the US fell for the act.
