Bush purposely destroyed American and World order anyone who has supported him should be held accountable along with him! Presidential library bah humbug!
Four years ago I wrote A Doctrine of fact President Bush uncovered I wanted people around the world to know that Bush was following what I know as the Russian Doctrine of Destruction in order to subvert existing order and then come to the rescue by emplacing your version of a new order. I have tried a million times to get Politician's, media, anyone to realize bush was using his Rove taught politics of divide and conquer on us, the middle east, and around the world to accomplish this. No one listened!
Even here which is a new forum for me you know I continually harp on the fact that the credit crisis, the financial crisis, the housing crisis, all of it was done on purpose by Greenspan under Bush and it will all get much worse as it is just beginning and that the timing is no coincidence either. Katrina was no accident nor was any of the crises Bush promised at photo ops to remedy and then did nothing! Yes Bush is a lifelong inept failure but none of this including what he has done around the world is an accident. It has all been done on purpose to destroy the old societal and world order and be perceived as coming to the rescue with a new version in this case Bush's version!
Anyone from Cheney and his mis agenda enabling Attorney Generals including Condoleezza Rice, all of them should be held accountable for what they have done to us and the world! I am sickened that Bush defends what he purposely did and no one points out the facts and holds him accountable. His Legacy of destruction has long been his concern! Of late he has been focusing on cementing his legacy as the President who destroyed America and he is very proud of his accomplishments while the facts back up what I have been saying since 2001 and that is that he has been purposely stealing power to change American and world order while appearing forced to do so! I am sickened that he is building a Presidential library to tout his messes and as far as I am concerned anyone helping with it should be railroaded out of America!
I was reading the CNN report stating Bush would have to navigate a treacherous post Presidency and he was nixed at wanting to write about 10 Crises he faced. Hell no wonder, he created every one of them so he could establish his new (dis)order! Anyway CNN's report! Treacherous waters of a post presidency are normal but as in everything with Bush this too will dwarf every problem in the past!
CNN: Bush must navigate a treacherous post presidency! It's a position that John Quincy Adams once called downright pathetic: that of a former president. After all, the process of relinquishing the most powerful job in the world isn't an easy one, especially given the American public's notoriously fleeting attention span and penchant for paying little heed to once-prominent political figures after they exit the public stage. As the days dwindle until President Bush joins what Herbert Hoover called the "most exclusive trade union in the world," the unpopular commander in chief appears decidedly enthusiastic about embracing a lower profile, recently declaring that he's more than ready to forgo the limelight. Although ex-presidents in Adams' day quickly descended into obscurity after their years in the Oval Office, today the transition away from serving as the leader of the free world is high-profile, potentially very lucrative and, above all, a difficult job in itself. This is especially true for Bush, historians and political observers say. He not only must oversee the construction of a presidential library and begin writing his memoirs, but he also must grapple with salvaging a legacy mired in the lowest presidential approval ratings in history. "The first year for every ex-president is really hard," said David Brinkley, a presidential historian at Rice University. "You have to raise all this money for your library, you've got to build an organization, you have to write a huge memoir, your papers are in disarray, and you suddenly realize your mistakes because your pace slows down."
Bush has more than a month left in office, but planning for his post-presidential year began more than two years ago. In many ways, the process is in full swing. Fundraising and planning for his presidential library, to be built on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, is well under way. The president has started interviews with high-profile journalists, by all accounts already trying to define his legacy. But as the president is set to begin his stint out of office, the exact path he will take remains unclear. Bush has expressed interest in writing a memoir and hitting the highly profitable lecture circuit, but experts say both pursuits could pose pitfalls. Publishers, concerned the president's slumping approval ratings could translate to less-than-stellar book sales, have reportedly been lukewarm about a Bush book deal. Bush has expressed interest in cataloguing 10 crises he's faced, Brinkley said, but wary publishers are somewhat cold to that idea, perhaps concerned that a public still reeling from the country's financial meltdown might not have an appetite for the president's account of his own difficult times.
* Bush, like several of his predecessors, is also likely to embark on the business of making money -- and a lot of it -- off his status as a former occupant of the White House. The Clintons have made more than $100 million in the eight years since the curtain closed on their White House years, and Bush himself has said that his father earns $50,000 to $75,000 a speech. To be sure, profiting from their White House years is a staple for modern ex-presidents: Gerald Ford capitalized on his accidental 2½-year presidency by sitting on the board of several major corporations, and Ronald Reagan caused a stir when he netted $2 million for a few brief speeches in Japan in 1989. But the public's overwhelming disdain for the president may delay a speaking tour and Bush ascent to the corporate boardroom. "He is a president where people are expecting some kind of repair work," said Julian Zelizer, a professor of history and public affairs at Princeton. "If he just goes on the speaking circuit and focuses his time making huge money, that would only tarnish a presidency that only has a low approval rating."
Instead, Bush is more likely to choose a similar post-presidential path, at least initially, as that of Jimmy Carter , who also left the White House with poor approval ratings, Zelizer said. Instead of seeking to profit off his years in office, Carter became a globe-trotting humanitarian and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 for his work promoting social and economic justice. In the process, Carter has rehabilitated his image and transformed a legacy that had seemed unsalvageable three decades ago. "What Jimmy Carter showed is that you can be very active in your post-presidential years and help improve how people think of you as a leader and a policy maker," Zelizer said. Bush and his handlers are mapping out this phase of the president's post-White House years. Plans are well under way for a "Freedom Institute" that will aim to promote democracies abroad. The institute, where Bush is expected to play a significant role, is expected to be unaffiliated with an academic institution. Its members are expected to be analysts whose views are in line with the neoconservative outlook that shaped the president's approach to foreign policy.
"This is going to be Bush vision." Brinkley said of the institute. "Bush has never liked the academics, and this is a nonacademic institute aimed at cutting to the core of things: only pro-democracy foot soldiers who are green-lit by George and Laura Bush are in the mix." It's under the auspices of this think tank that the president might try to improve his legacy, in hopes that Freedom Institute might reveal virtues in the foreign policy vision that led to the most defining decision of his presidency, the invasion of Iraq. "This president's low approval rating is overwhelmingly connected to Iraq. It will rise and fall depending what turns out to be the history of that country and that part of the world," said Stephen Hess, a former Eisenhower aide and a scholar at the conservative Brookings Institution. "That really is what his legacy for future historians is all about! treacherous post Presidency
** I hate to be the one to wake these idiots up but Bush's legacy is not defined by the attack on Iraq. It will be judged by the lie we are living under Bush! The lie of 9/11, the lie of prosperity, the lie of success, the lie of concern, the lie of diplomacy, and on and on and on! He has been a miserable failure his entire life and his Presidency is the final step "I Hope" Bush should never be able to make a red cent from what he did to us and the world. The more people wake up to the crises Bush purposely caused "as this is just beginning" the more permanent should be the ban on him writing memoirs and profiting in any respect!
