George W. Bush


Soon as you read his name or see his face a million facts and images come to mind.

Here are just a few of those facts about Georgy

In the last 8 years he has"won" two elections.
(Very debated whether he actually beat Gore)

He started a "war on terrorism" in Afghanistan.
(Which Canada, Germany, France, and the UK are now involved in)

Looked for nuclear weapons weapons in Iraq.
(Was never able to find anything, except Saddam and we all know how that ended)

Started a war in Iraq that could have been avoided.
(hundreds of thousands of lives have been lost during this war, and some surveys estimate that the total number of deaths may be over a million)

George's administration has managed to turn a $236 billion dollar surplus into a $422 billion deficit.
(Not to mention, under his administration the whole sub prime rate chaos became out of control)

This is the list that never ends! It goes on and on my friends.
(Shout out to Lamb Chops Play Along)

So I could sit here critiquing his past as a young adult, senator, or president, but instead I will leave you with a site that contains 100 facts(with sources) and 1 opinion. This site does a nice job of summing up some of George's biggest fuck ups.

Now before I go, I will leave you with a compilation of David Letterman's segment "Great Moments in Presidential History". This demonstrates why were so happy to see Bush go, but at the same time makes you realize how much we will miss his speeches and other dumb antics.
