All You Need To Know About Bush, Rove, And Napoleon

I've been quiet of late, so if you think that my opinion of George* Bush has moderated, rest assured, it hasn't. I can't say why without getting angry, so I found a guy who, in his understated and elegant way, details why Bush will always be the worst President in history to me….

As Napoleon said, if you set out to take Vienna, take Vienna. Napoleon might also have said, if you set out to pacify Baghdad, pacify Baghdad.

Bush's two most important domestic accomplishments in the second term have been the appointments of John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court. But even these masterstrokes ran at least partly against the first instincts of Bush and Rove. If they'd had their druthers, Meirs and Alberto Gonzales would be on the court today

And the last paragraph of Jonah Goldberg's commentary frames it all up very nicely.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. "Obviously, Rove was aided in his 2004 task by the fact that the
    Democrats nominated John Kerry, a Michael Dukakis without the brains."*snicker*
