Return Of The Village Idiot

Just when you thought the Village Idiot had disappeared from the public eye, George Bush re-emerges with this gem:

“In terms of accomplishments, my biggest accomplishment is that I kept the country safe amid a real danger.”

That’s got to rate as one of the most outrageous statements ever made by an ex-President.  For God’s sake, you idiot, 9/11 happened on your watch!  The worst terrorist attack in the history of the country.  Katrina happened on your watch, the worst man-made disaster to ever happen in this country.  The Iraq War happened on your watch, the longest and most disastrous war ever for the U.S.  That’s over 9,000 Americans who died needlessly during your administration, over 30,000 soldiers permanently disabled, and over 400,000 citizens displaced from their homes.

I can kinda understand how the Obama administration has opted not to pursue criminal charges against Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld and the rest of the crooks in the last administration — but at the very least, can’t we deport these monsters to some remote island in the Pacific so we don’t have to put up with their insane ramblings reminding us of just how bad they screwed up this country?
