    Pathetic.

    So no one tells the truth except people who say Bush was wonderful. Interesting. Well, like it or not, this is a foretaste of how history will judge the last 8 years.

    I would have posted it if it has said how wonderful Bush was. It is news and people should read it ... not with a closed mind, but to learn and hopefully make more intelligent decisions in the future.

    Matthew Dowd has long since worked for ABC. I read a few of his blogs and to say that he doesn’t support George Bush is an understatement. He may have worked for the man at one time, but obviously has no respect for him now. His assertion that Hurricane Katrina caused the president to “break his bonds with the public” is biased at best and is not a credible opinion.


    Ah! Vanity Fair magazine…….the absolute pinnacle of unbiased journalism. :rolleyes:

    This biased piece is a “good riddance” piece. I believe the name of it is “Farewell to All That” if I read correctly on some Google sites.



    No. They are just giving their very biased opinion of their former boss. And they are giving their biased opinion to the same audience that their (at least Dowd) new boss caters to. What do you expect them to say?

    Probably so....but that doesn't make those judgments valid nor complete nor give them any integrity.
    People will generally believe what they are told to believe.

    People began hating George Bush from the time that he took office the first time after the disastrous recount. They still hate him today.

    And unfortunately, they will write the history from their point of view.

    For a guy who never recovered, he sure didn't have a problem pushing the war spending bills thru. A good 2.5 years after Katrina.

    Once you are stuck to a tar baby it is hard to get loose. Not funding the war once it was began would only have compounded the mistake. There was and is no good way out of Iraq.

    Thsat has nothing to do with my statement. You claim he has been beaten, and I show you eveidence he has not. It has nothing to do with tar babies, whatever the heck those are.

    He has gotten everything he wants. How is that "never recovering" ?

    The Tar Baby and Iraq

    I did not say anything about his being beaten .... beaten in what way? in what area? I have no idea what you are suggesting.

    Congress passed the additional funding for several reasons, some political, some practical. It was obvious that that ramifications of witholding funding was much worse than passing the funding bills. It has everything to do with being stuck to a tar baby. Maybe that is to subtle, or perhaps you do not know the story of Bi'er Rabbit and the Tar Baby. The invasion was like Bi'er Rabbit getting stuck to the Tar Baby. It isn't easy to get loose once you are stuck.

    Here is a link to the story: http://www.americanfolklore.net/folktales/ga2.html

    Your article says he never recovered. I say he's gotten everything he's asked for.

    I'm surprised you haven't heard of a "tar baby" before.

    BTW, I don't see where Crabtownboy said anything about anyone beating anyone else. He just referred to an article from a former Bush worker.

    I think if Bush is thought of even this well by most people in the future is unlikely. Given revelations like this and the one from Scott McClellan, Bush is destined to being looked upon as one of the worst presidents ever.

    Where I'm from, the word "tar baby" gets you beaten up. It's a racial term, in New England. That's the only context I ever heard it in. My parents weren't big on Mother Goose & Grimm.
