Goodbye Mr Bush

What with all the attention on the two men waiting for the keys to the White House, it is easy to overlook the man who has been sat in the big chair for the past eight years, George Walker Bush.
The McCain team have sidelined the Republican President rather than risk him denting McCain's chances by dragging the Texan on stage with him but was he all that bad?
Actually yes, he was an unmitigated catastrophe for the entire World but if you put to one side the way the megalomaniac is leaving the Globe in a more dangerous state than it was when he came into the Presidency eight years ago, he was actually responsible for one of the greatest lines ever to tumble from a world leaders mouth.
There are plenty of examples to fill a Bush collections of gaffes including the declaration that "more and more of our imports come from overseas", and after being asked by a child in Britain what the White House was like, replied helpfully "It's White".
All great but there is one quote that sums up everything about the Texan and his time as the leader of the USA.
"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful — and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people — and neither do we."
It just doesn't get better than that so as the celebrations for the newly elected President get under way tonight, spare a thought for the outgoing George W Bush who at long last is about to make the World a safer and better place by becoming the former-President George W Bush.

I want to be the first to hold up my hand and admit that I was wrong about Dubya. When he 'beat' Gore in 2000, I expected this illiterate, unqualified lunatic's tenure to be a total disaster. I thought everything he touched would turn to sh*t and that he would leave his country, and the world in general, in a vastly diminished condition, compared to what he inherited.

Turns out I was wrong - because it's been SO much worse than that.
