I never could stand this man, but this is beyond even what I would have thought he was capable of. Does any person seriously think that had Bill Clinton spear-headed this clusterfuck, that Poppy Bush wouldn't have come out of the woodwork, early and often, to chastise him for wooly-headed idealism meeting the constraints of realpolitik, of a bunch of draft-dodging dummycrats fucking up his, Poppy's, masterful compromise, of needlessly squandering American lives and American treasure, American credibility?
I mean, really. There's defending your idiot progeny, no matter how badly he fucks up the proverbial baked potato. And there's trying not to undermine the "leader", who or whatever that may mean. But this is completely indefensible. He did not change his mind out of honorable intentions; everything he (and Cheney, incidentally) predicted over a decade ago has come to pass. Frankly, it's nauseating, and shameful. I don't know how the man lives with himself, but I do wish he'd piss off already, and at least have the common decency to tell the rest of his ridiculous dynasty to go away. ¡No mas Arbustos!
