Obama Whitewashes Bush Again

The following are excerpts from remarks President Obama delivered today at the dedication of the lie-brary of a "president" whose negligence allowed this country to be attacked, who allowed Osama bin Laden to escape, whose policy on education was disastrous, who sent troops into battle unnecessarily and without adequate provisions or proper training, who cut benefits for troops and for veterans, and who sought to cut those benefits by even more.

Obama, Bush (Eric Draper / White House)

This is a Texas-sized party.  And that's worthy of what we're here to do today...  We're reminded of the incredible strength and resolve that came through that bullhorn as [George W. Bush] stood amid the rubble and the ruins of Ground Zero, promising to deliver justice to those who had sought to destroy our way of life...

He believed we had to reform our schools in ways that help every child learn...  We share a profound respect and reverence for the men and women of our military and their families.  And we are united in our determination to comfort the families of the fallen and to care for those who wear the uniform...

America needs leaders who are willing to face the storm head-on...  That's what Pres. George W. Bush chose to do.  That's why I'm honored to be part of today's celebration.  Mr. President, for your service, for your courage... for your love of country, thank you very much.  From all the citizens of the United States of America, God bless you.
