The National Post - Best Thing Bush Did - IRAQ!

Can somebody tell the editor of the National Spot that they don't have to keep trying so hard to prove they're the most idiotic newspaper in Canada.

The Post ran an op-ed piece on Friday in which a supposed professor from Gettysburg College claimed the best thing Bush did was invade Iraq. Yes, he actually wrote that. Iraq - the best thing the feeble-minded bugger accomplished.

The second best thing, in the mind of the Post's revered Allen C. Guelzo was the "Axis of Evil" speech. Really. The second best thing Bush did was read (sort of) a speech written by David Frum. Eight years and that's second only to the genius of destabilizing Iraq and giving Iran a free ride to regional ascendancy.

Nos. 3, 4 and 5, in the nutty professor's mind were faith-based initiatives, "blunting the metastasis of abortion" and "balancing" the US Supreme Court bench.

You know, maybe the good professor is right. Maybe those are the best things Bush did. Maybe everything else he did was simply worse.

p.s. I must apologize for posting this two days after it appeared in NatPo. Truth be told, that rag is so bad I just can't bring myself to take a look at it more than once or twice a week.

Unbelievable. Wearing blinders causing tunnel vision. If this person is a professor I wouldn't want them teaching anything to my kid (I don't have one) or anyone elses. He should be relieved on his position. And that the NatPo would publish this tripe is beyond me.

This is a steadily emerging theme from the uber-right. They're still defending the policies that dragged their country to the bottom - economically, internationally, environmentally. It's truly remarkable the lengths to which they'll go in their quest for revisionism.

And, as for you Anon, I'm glad you can claim to speak for the Iraqi people. I don't know who cares about Saddam but the invasion of Iraq wasn't about Saddam and that's pretty well established by now. That said, your typical insulting remarks has sent your little diatribe straight to the bin. Adios.
