How dare you! How dare you speak of my son and his courage! How dare you say his name in your hypocritical praise. You who used him and threw his life away. You who wanted to be a "war president" like it's some sort of sick game! A monster to end all monsters.

Blood for oil - just so long as it's your oil and not your blood. And with you, who knows, maybe even then. Calling his death noble is just your way of calling yourself noble for your wicked, wicked endeavors. You do not have permission to speak his name. You certainly don't have permission to speak of his death!

I don't ask you to repent. That's between you and your war god. God help you if you ever crawl out of that hole of yours. Because there's thousands upon thousands of screaming wailing voices waiting to be heard. I don't want to hear your bullshit. I want to hear you're sorry. That would be a start to honoring him.

"I don't want to hear your bullshit. I want to hear you're sorry." So that was said to me, actually (even though she's not speaking to me).

You accomplished a miracle, I just googled W and his horrible paintings. They just go to show that art really is subjective. 

The Onion got it right. I can't believe, after all these years, that people still sign up to fight the war he started.

I saw those same images, Phyllis. There's something off about them.

Coming clean is the only solution. For him, and us as a country. Nothing can end until that happens.

At this point we have a President so bad that Bush’s reputation is improving drastically which, let’s face it, is awful. We went into Iraq on completely phony pretenses. In early 2001, I had a conversation with a young man who had friends in the military and military intelligence, and what he told me at the time was that his friends had already been told they were going to Iraq. I had this conversation before 9/11. All this crap about Saddam having anything to do with 9/11, which looked like a joke at the time and entailed really incompetent foreign policy analysis, was an even bigger joke than it looked. Not a funny one, though. 

If Bush wants to try to paint his way out of his guilt, so be it, depending on who else accepts this repentance such as it is. The best I can say about his efforts is at least they indicate some feelings for the guys he pointlessly put in harm’s way. So much for low expectations.

W said on the radio during his first campaign that he wanted to go to Iraq, people just weren't listening. I lived in Florida then and Jeb was governor so he may have felt safer saying it there. I only heard it once, though.

I wasn't trying to re-litigate the Iraq war here. Just saying that W doing these paintings is like OJ painting Ron and Nicole and presenting it to their families. Coming clean is the only proper response.

W isn't looking any better in comparison to me. Raping and plundering a country is hard to top even as we turn our efforts to self-annihilation. Trumtard is just exposing the criminality of conservatism that already existed. It certainly marks the end of what we call law and order.
