A ruinous legacy

(How tragically true and prescient this Nation cover illustration was, eight years ago.)

Sadly, I don't think we've seen yet the complete ramifications of the destructive eight-year administration of George Bush.

Bush has brought America to its knees.

And despite the delusion that Condi Rice is trying to peddle, I think history will judge Bush harshly, and even discover that his actual election was fraudulent in 2000, and possibly in 2004 as well. In the short term the picture is clear, our reputation, our Constitution, our liberty, our economy, our reliability - all in ruins, or at the very least tattered and in disrepair.

In today's New York Times, Bob Herbert calls out the Texas bully. You know what happens when you stand up to a bully. The bully disappears.

AN ADDENDUM: Talk about re-writing history, check this out.

I was in Toys R Us a few days ago and I saw a children's book on sale entitled: Barack Obama: Child of Promise. This bodes poorly for us all. I wonder how closely the Tom Tomorrow's of the world will scrutinize Mr. Obama's performance.
