George W. Bush Issues a Mea Culpa for the Crap Economy, Being Unprepared for War And Losing It for the GOP

This is not a joke.

Our lame duck president, George W. Bush, sat down with ABC's Charlie Gibson Monday and showed that he doesn't totally have his head up his ass.

W on Iraq:
"I think I was unprepared for war. In other words, I didn't campaign and say, 'Please vote for me, I'll be able to handle an attack. In other words, I didn't anticipate war. Presidents — one of the things about the modern presidency is that the unexpected will happen." He also says that the use of incorrect intelligence for warmongering, i.e. that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, is the "biggest regret of all the presidency."

W on the economy and government bail out:
"I'm sorry it's happening, of course. Obviously I don't like the idea of people losing jobs, or being worried about their 401(k)s. On the other hand, the American people got to know that we will safeguard the system. I mean, we're in. And if we need to be in more, we will."

And, acknowledging that he effed things up for the Republicans:
"And I'm sure some people voted for Barack Obama because of me. I think most people voted for Barack Obama because they decided they wanted him to be in their living room for the next four years explaining policy."

This W interview is definitely a must see!!!

    What an utter LIAR.
    -
    This was was planned on paper the February BEFORE the Sept. 11 attack.
    -
    WAR PROFITEERING LIARS - the whole bunch.
    -
    and while I'm at it — I'm sick to death of Republicans calling themselves "true patriots" - nothing could be further from the truth — they are true GREED Idiots - and it republicans were EVER honest - they'd admit their vote is swayed everytime by greed - extra $30 a month! "Damn the country, damn the future of the youth - I got me some huck-huck, a'money! " Ignorant. Just tell the truth - greed monger, not patriot in ANY sense.
    -
    And the longer they drag that whack-job palin out in the light of day, the more American voters and the rest of the world will continue to think the GOP are morons.

    Haa he is such a moron. His speaking skills are horrible! He makes absolutely no sense when he talks. A friend of mine has this yearly calendar with GW quotes and they are fucking hilarious! He is a true retard. His money not smarts got him the presidency and I am glad Obama is the new pres, I hope he doesnt fuck shit up.

    Putting far-Left Democrats in charge won’t help the economy. They hate business and plan to use global warming as an excuse to crush it. If they spread the wealth, the rich will leave, businesses will close, unemployment will rise. More people will become dependent on the government, which is how Marxists like things: the people kept poor and dependent. Look at Cuba, a once-prosperous nation, where the people now live in poverty with no way out.
    .
    The goal of the far Left is the overthrow of capitalism and democracy. Their actions started the economic collapse. Search Youtube for “Democrats in their own words Covering up the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam.” Republicans beg for more oversight and Democrats refuse. Read about the Cloward-Piven Strategy of orchestrated crisis. ACORN was founded to cause an economic crisis that would bring about the fall of capitalism. Obama worked for and funded ACORN.
    .
    Bush has had to make tough decisions in which all the options came with painful consequences. He has kept us safe since 9/11 and he's liberated millions. It’s hard to tell what his legacy will be, as it takes time to see what the fall-out is. With the far Left in charge, I fear that the progress made by Bush in spreading democracy will be undone by appeasement policies meant to make us more popular. Our enemies will see this as a sign of weakness and we will pay a high price.

    fuck it. our country is in shambles. the goevrnement would rather give banks billlions of dollars to bail them out. they should have just paid off our mortgages (would have saved billions of $$ there)!! instead they bail out the banks with out $$.. GW is a dumb ass, but all of our countries problems are nt entirely his fault! Let's hope the tthe media's golden boy (Obama) can deliver on his empty promises… although I can predict people will be talking shit about him too. Funny how his cabinet is composed of President Clinton's former advisors… Hillary should be Presidnet!

    DIVE ON A SPIKE ALREADY, JACKASS!!!!

    Re: Fagalicious – At least HILLARY HAS EXPERIENCE. SHE KNOWS HOW TO ACTUALLY CAST A VOTE YES OR NO NOT JUST "PRESENT"

    He made some bad decisions that's for sure but it's not all GWs fault - the President cannot do everything. As for 9/11 - I can't imagine whoever might have been in office would not have gone to war, and the war started in Afghanistan not Iraq - 3,000 people were killed here in the US, that's a pretty good amount of people to make sure it doesn't happen again. Go Obama!



  15. 115

    Wow, a little too late, tho, don't ya think?



  16. 116

    How many days left of this looser! Im sure all the people that lost their lives forgive him. He should be prosecuted!



  17. 117

    He's aware of his "dumbness" and how people perceive him.
    He definetely messed it up for repubs. But he says what he's thinking. Have you noticed BO's 1st press conf? It was alot of umm, uhhh, ummm. because he's holding back. He's not saying what he really wants to, that's supposed to make me comfortable? Trustworthy? Not so much.

    i can't believe some of you idiots actually think the war on terror and the war in iraq are the same war. they were TWO different wars.
