Blagojevich, Spitzer, Edwards.......George W. Bush

The media frenzy over the findings around Governor Blagojevich are understandable. The moves he's made are so egregious that his suitability for governorship is obviously over. We are also reminded of similar highly-publicized political downfalls this year, such as the former Governor of New York, Elliot Spitzer and former presidential-candidate John Edwards. Both were guilty of infidelity, and Spitzer's downfall included a longstanding "relationship" with a high-priced prostitute. There's little chance that this trio will receive any remorse from a public that loves to witness the powerful fall.

But the actions of all three of these men pale in comparison to the atrocities thrown upon Americans and the World as a whole by President Bush. After eight years as president, the destruction he's dumped on us day-in and day-out is almost beyond comprehension. There's no need to highlight all of the mistakes but let's note just a few:

-Ignoring the August 6, 2001 memo entitled "Bin Laden determined to attack inside the U.S.". Just imagine if our president had done his job and addressed this.
-Invading a sovereign nation based on lies, bogus intelligence and fabrications. This move led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, many of whom were innocent civilians. Imagine a country did that here in the United States.
-Torture. This needs no explanation. Bush, Cheney and Rice knew of this and all three should be prosecuted.
-Katrina. One of the worst failures of government in the history of this country.
-The Environment. The day will come when millions, if not billions of humans will perish due to climate change. Bush had an opportunity to get us started on the right course; he did exactly the opposite.
-FISA. Simply unconstitutional in its very nature.

This is just a small sampling of some of the policies of the 43rd president of the United States that should have resulted in his removal of office and ultimate conviction. Lest we forget our national debt, the worst economy in perhaps a generation, an atrocious trade policy, the near end of civil rights, a public education system that's nearly beyond repair, a health-care crisis beyond reproach, a disparity between rich and poor that we've never seen, and our failures in Afghanistan, where the 9/11 folks actually trained.

This list could go on and on and on. My point is that our media has absolutely failed us. They jump on the stories involving sex, bribery and other mistakes that are easily understood and simple to cover. But when the president trampled on the constitution and did everything imaginable to destroy this great country, where was our media? They decided to show up when Barack Obama became popular and exposing Bush et al became trendy. This is a disgrace. Just like 9/11, the words "never forget" should be applied to the presidency of George W. Bush. We can never let this happen again.
