Miss Him Yet?


Military veterans US Army Sgt. (Ret.) Dan Nevins, left, and North Carolina National Guard SSgt. (Ret.) Dale Beatty, look on as former President George W. Bush tees off during a practice round in the two-day Warrior Open tournament at Las Colinas Country Club, in Irving, Texas on Sunday, Oct. 9.

Former President George Bush hosted the Warrior Open golf tournament this past Sunday in Irving, Tex.

The competition for wounded veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, gave Bush the opportunity to interact with soldiers. While Bush has had few public appearances since leaving office, showing his support of the U.S troops has been one of his priorities. In April, he hosted Warrior 100, a similar event where he biked 62 miles (100 kilometers) with injured servicemen. -- PhotoBlog - Bush tees off with wounded veterans

Scratch what I said about trying to become more cynical below. This is a man who knows how to be an inspiring leader.

Americans will die for you, they will get their legs blown off for your shitty, thankless backwater cesspool of a country, and when they come home, having left half of their bodies in your shitty, thankless, backwater cesspools, they will get new legs. Shiny titanium and chrome legs. And they will play golf with their new limbs. Because they're Americans, and that's what they do.

Hey wait a minute, no doubt when O leaves office he'll host a tourney for the All Amazon Lesbian Brigade that helped overturn DADT in the military.

He may have made some policy errors, but unlike Hussein, he is a mensch.

George Bush was a good man and despite media caricatures, some of which were true, his Bush Doctrine was long needed.

In layman's terms, US Policy in regard to terrorism is to seek out the terrorist no matter where they are, who trains them and who finances them. We won't be waiting here, we are coming after you.

Afghanistan was an obvious target. Iraq, when logically looked at was too. The intelligence that Bush received was so strong, that it would have been irresponsible not to act. That Intel turned out to be wrong, but leaders make decisions based on what information they are given.

Real men aren't going to let a little thing like missing limbs keep them from the golf course. They knew what had to be done and as skeptical as I am about the Arab Spring, Bush gets credit for setting the bar. No matter how many rounds Obama plays, he'll never be a man's man, a true commander in chief.

I love it when my President calls me racist for not supporting his immigration policy, which is why I miss Bush so much.

And I love how he left the country ripe for Obama too.

And how he has defenders fight for him so he can feel all full of class while others cheerlead for him by saying what a good and decent man he his.

And what, WHAT, would America have been like with a "conservative" viewpoint in place of Bush's "compassionate conservatism?"

I shudder to think.

And if Obama "keeps us safe" like Bush did except for 9/11 (Jaime Gorelick's fault, along with Clinton of course) that doesn't matter: keeping us safe only matters if Bush does it.
