75% Happy Bush Is Leaving

Three out of four Americans are happy George Bush is leaving office according to a CNN Poll. Considering how much harm George Bush has done to the country in the last eight years this is hardly a surprise. There is a dissenting twenty-three percent who are sad to see him go. Are these people who are totally oblivious to what has happened the last eight years, people with no sense of morality, or masochists who would also love to spend eternity being kicked in the head?

For comparison’s sake, forty-five percent were sad to see Bill Clinton go at the end of his term. Presumably the number who wished he would go away was much higher by last spring.

One third who were polled hope that George Bush remains active in public life after leaving office, compared to fifty-five percent who (at least back then) wanted Bill Clinton to maintain a public role. I wonder what kind of public life they desire. George Bush has showed during the last eight years that he is totally incompetent and has little understanding of (or real interest in) public policy. At least having Bush involved in public life after out of office, and when he no longer has any power, is far safer than having him involved while having the power of the presidency.

    The family members of all of the U.S. service members (more than 4,220) whose deaths were wrongfully caused by Bush must be glad that Bush is gone.
