Bush Library Rewrite Website Fact-Checks Fictional Legacy

Miss me yet?

H/t Huffington Post.

President George W. Bush famously remarked that he couldn’t think of any mistakes he was responsible for. That theme was carried forward in the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum that opened last May. Our Worst President Ever and his die-hard supporters continue to claim there was nothing wrong with Bush’s decisions.

Fortunately for the truth, the nonprofit group Bridge Project has produced The Bush Rewrite, a website that exposes Bush’s attempt to rewrite history in his favor.

George W. Bush’s presidency was bookended by a pair of crises that shook the nation: the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the financial meltdown that forced the government to bail out several of the nation’s largest banks in the fall of 2008. In between, the Bush White House was plagued by a series of scandals and controversies, policy failures, and another disaster in the form of Hurricane Katrina. By the end of his second term, Bush had become one of the most unpopular presidents ever as his political allies began working on the long-term project of restoring his legacy.

To that end, the creation of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, opened in April 2013, offered a unique opportunity to attempt to rewrite history.

Located in Dallas, Texas, the Bush Library highlights the major events and policy initiatives that took place during Bush’s time in the White House. But as one might expect, the exhibits give the impression that Bush’s decisions were correct and admirable, while glossing over his failures and the harmful consequences of his actions.

    Slander n lies! As the repubs in the area hit by the storm know, Obama was the one who failed to respond to Katrina. And since 9/11 is Clinton’s fault and the meltdown is the fault of the poor and Obama, Shrub clearly did nothing wrong.

    …hell, he was on vacation clearing undergrowth at his ranch for over 65% of the time was in office! What could he have had time to destroy?

    The only thing Americans have going for them is Hollywood. We still make some of the best movies in the world, but we are a fictitious society. Everything the world knows about us is made up by our corporate media and, sadly, enough Americans have bought into the meme that Americans are stupid as hell and vote for people who are out to destroy their lives.

    Excuse me, but MOST Americans did NOT give the House of Representatives to the Republicans in the last election. Not even the Republicans can dispute that FACT!

    The DINO’s never stand up.

    Why?

    We don’t even have that going for us. Hollywood is home to the one eyed jew..filthy television lie machine..as for the movies they are filled with sick perversion and moral turpitude, and simple filth…
    …just like the people responsible for making them..

    I’ll watch just about anything but a hollywood movie and cannot remember the last time I was in a theater.
