Final Sendoff

Bush booed at the Inaugural:


The commentators loudly tsk tsked, though only a decided minority of the nearly 2 million-strong crowd expressed their understandable displeasure and disapproval. Well, at least no one threw shoes.

I'm just as disgusted with what this man did to our country and our Constitution, but I wouldn't have bothered. This day is not about him. There's a time for accountability, but today is ours.

Meanwhile, the foreign press took their final swipe at Dubya:

"A weak leader, Bush was just overwhelmed in the job," said Germany's Sueddeutsche Zeitung under a headline: "The Failure." "He confused stubbornness with principles. America has become intolerant and it will take a long time to repair that damage..."

"Goodbye to the worst president ever," [Canada's Toronto Star] declared. "Bush was an unmitigated disaster, failing on the big issues from the invasion of Iraq to global warming, Hurricane Katrina and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression..."

The Scottish Daily Record observed: "America is now hated in many parts of the world. Bush leaves a legacy of wars and the world economy in meltdown. He has been dismissed as a buffoon and a war-monger, a man who made the world a more dangerous place while sending it to the brink of economic collapse..."
The British Daily Mail and French Le Monde gave him credit for no terrorist attacks since 9/11, but that's like crediting the crowing of the rooster for the sun rising at dawn. Besides, how about the anthrax attacks? Hello? Yet Bush defenders and apologists will always insist on this fantasy, because in their own make believe world he never fails, even when he does.
