GW Dubya

I read recently that President Bush once said he wanted to be a war President. Seems he really got his wish. Visions of History swam through his head and I don't believe he honestly meant the kind of war we are embroiled in now. Maybe he saw himself as that other GW, or maybe Abe Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt or perhaps Harry Truman. My personal belief is that he will not like the view History will take of him. Incompetence, waste, political cronyism, alienation are not good words to apply to any administration. Please note I am not talking about his bunged on accent (I lived in Aussie for some years), mispronunciations and lack of real leadership. Some day Clio will point out that a vanishing middle class, a buck and a quarter (or whatever) extra for the struggling lower income people and the attack on our Constitution were gross errors of judgement and led to the decline of America's power and prestige.

Hi Catmoves. When I say your comment at TC's blog, I had to come check you out, given your feline name. Interesting blog.

On history's judgment I don't see how Crawford Caligula can avoid a 'Worst in history' rating.

Thank you two crows and tomcat. I Googled Crawford Caligula and found pages and pages of aliases for our President. Liked your blog, tom cat. Jealous you're off to Florida, too. Now I'm going to have to start checking out some of our other Presidents to see if they have listings like this. Sigh.

You're all grossly underestimating our fearless leader... history will depict him as a man of steely resolution and spot-on judgement... once the Bush family purchases all publishing houses and bans any negative charecterizations of Captain Crazy...
