Before You Hang President George W. Bush...

One of my favorite segments in Arianna Huffington's new book, "Right is Wrong", is timed perfectly to the latest polling news: That George W. Bush has officially been crowned the most unpopular president in modern history, with a disapproval rating over 70%.

So let's return to her take on the now-infamous Bill Kristol op-ed in The Washington Post last July in which he promised that Bush would end up a "winner." Arianna calls it "the single most deceptive story of the entire war." One wonders if it was actually written by Billy Crystal, not Bill Kristol.

~ Greg Mitchell in Arianna's New Book Cuts Kristol!

President George W. Bush may be the most unpopular president in the modern history of America, but not in the world.

The most unpopular president in the world today is President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, with a disapproval rating of over 80%.

The former president of Nigeria, Chief "the thief" Olusegun Aremu Okikiola Matthew Obasanjo was worse than Prresident George W. Bush.

The worst presidents in modern history are not in the developed countries, therefore President George W. Bush is not the worst.

If President George W. Bush failed America, he is not the only one who is guilty, but all the members of Congress who have voted in support of his policies, including Senators Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others from the White House to Capitol.

All those who also voted for him to have a second term are equally guilty of the failures of President George W. Bush, because he would not have been in the Oval Office today, if the majority of American voters did the right thing in 2004.

All the beneficiaries of the bogus and bloody contracts in the war in Iraq should also be hanged with President George W. Bush, because they are his accomplices.
They are guilty of sending thousands of innocent American soldiers and others to their untimely death in a suicide mission in Iraq.

The American journalists, elites and religious leaders who also supported President George W. Bush from 2003 to date should also be hanged.

Hypocrites are worse than sinners.

If these American political hypocrites, political parasites and political prostitutes were wise, they would not have voted for President George W. Bush in 2004.

The U.S. Congress had all the constitutional powers to impeach President George W. Bush, but failed to do so. Therefore, both the Democrats and Republicans are guilty of whatever crimes or evils President George W. Bush has committed in his administration.

American liberals and conservatives must stop fooling themselves.
Before you hang President George W. Bush, hang yourselves.

Editorial Review of "Right is Wrong":

With her trademark passion, intelligence, and devastating wit, Huffington Post editor-in-chief Arianna Huffington tackles the issues that are crucial to this year’s presidential election and, even more so, to the fate of the country.

Huffington makes the case that America has been hijacked from within by a radical element—the “lunatic fringe” of the Right that has taken over the Republican Party. Despite holding views at odds with the majority of Americans, these zealots have given us an endless war in Iraq, a sputtering economy, a health care system on life support, a war on science and reason, and an immoral embrace of torture.

But they haven’t done it on their own: they have been enabled by a compliant media that act as if there is no such thing as truth and are more interested in cozying up to those in power than in holding them accountable, and by feckless Democrats who have allowed themselves to be intimidated into backing down again and again.

Both a withering indictment and a hopeful call to arms, "Right Is Wrong" is an explosive, boldly incisive work that will help set the national agenda.
