Its my opinion that GWB was a puppet and a fool who was mainly in power at all because of the political string pulling by his father and corruption in the Florida vote. I am astonished the American people gave him a second term. The guy generally came across as having below average intelligence and being of dubious character.
However, people seem to be blinded to his successor. Obama did to Gaddafi what Bush did to Saddam, and both continued the carnage in Afghanistan. Obama even wanted to take out Assad.
Then when the ambassador was killed in Libya, the Obama administration lied to the American people, just like they lied about just wanting to keep Libya a no fly zone. The Obama administration was running arms into Syria to try and overthrow Assad. This is why he was targeted. It was a scandal like Iran Contra that never materialized. That is because they system today is far more corrupt than in the days of even Reagan.
I don't really make a distinction between Obama or "W". Both are sell outs as both expanded the powers of the federal government and created massive entitlements and ignored illegal immigration for the most part. Both are corporate darlings.
Which leads us to Hillary and Jeb. Either one will do for the corporate elites to carry on the legacy left by both "W" and Obama.
It's a shame they will waste millions, maybe billions, on nominating these two to win their respective parties. It will be a waste of time and money.
