George Bush: Man of Vision!!

As much of the world still bows at the feet of the Messiah, let us look at some of the big issues on the global stage.
There’s Iran doing its utmost to develop nuclear weapons, despite how much the UN may huff and puff about it.
Ditto with North Korea, who has already begun testing missiles off the coast of Japan.
Now, in 2002, George Bush coined the phrase “axis of evil” and was widely ridiculed at the time.
Saturday Night Live was one of the great offenders, with Will Ferrell regularly taking the piss.
This is what George Bush said then of Iraq, Iran and North Korea:

“States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States. In any of these cases, the price of indifference would be catastrophic.”

Iraq seems okay now, thanks to the US liberation but on the others Dubya was entirely correct.
Indeed, Dubya increasingly seems a man of vision, a president ahead of his time.
Take this editorial from The (Melbourne) Age.

“Imagine if, only a year ago, the President of the United States had visited Turkey, addressed its parliament, then kissed the Prime Minister on both cheeks.
“That might have been considered far-fetched, but so, too, would have been the President’s affirmation that his country was not at war with Islam and that being Muslim in the US is part of the fabric of life. "

Thus as one of Australia’s leftist rags applauds the Messiah for such activities and saying Dubya would never do it, as Andrew Bolt reveals, Dubya did.
Indeed, Dubya is a most misunderstood guy, seeing which nations would prove most troublesome and reaching out to Islam in ways they praise the Messiah for. If anything, Dubya has been too friendly to Islam and the Saudis than many of us righties would wish, though at least he never prostated himself before a Saudi Prince like Obama did.
Anyway, if ignorant ridicule from the likes of The Age and Saturday Night Live helps determine a great president, imagine the heights Sarah Palin will take the world in her two-term US presidency!!!

I used to say that within fifty years, historians would recognise how great a President George Bush was, and how underrated - but at the rate Obama is going, I think it'll only take about fifty more weeks.

GW is a good guy and was a good POTUS, it was just the media who ridiculed him at ever possible occasion. Now if they applied the same standard to O'brainlesswonder
