Bush to be Remembered for Helping Iraqis, Hurting Americans

It’s really too bad when an American President considers as one of his principal achievements something “he” did for the people of another country:

“I’d like to be a president [known] as somebody who liberated 50 million people and helped achieve peace,” Bush told his sister, Dorothy Bush Koch, in a conversation recorded for the oral-history organization StoryCorps for the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.

Meanwhile, he was the sitting President when millions of his own citizens were put to the yoke to pay for the mistakes of others. In my mind, Bush will always be the Republican President who sacrificed capitalism and individual rights on the alter of altruism–at least, until the next one, of course.
