I was actually going to wait until Obama officially took office before I threw this in the face of all the fools who cried that Bush wasn't going to
leave office. But since the OP beat me to the punch, I'll jump in now and beat this dead horse!
I can't tell you how many threads and posts I've read over the years on this site where people swore up and down that Bush wasn't going to leave
office. They said he would stage a large terror attack, possibly nuclear, and then declare Marshall Law and suspend the elections.
Well... where are all those people now? I doubt they will come forward with the same ferocity they had before and admit that they were wrong.
They're too stubborn to do that. In fact, they are probably too occupied with whatever their latest conspiracy theory of the week is. And just as
they were wrong about Bush, they will probably be wrong about whatever crap they're posting this time! But you'll likely never see most, and
especially not all, of them coming forward like respectable individuals and admitting that they were wrong all along and that those of us who opposed
them were right all along.
Most of these ATS members allowed their unfounded hatred for Bush to cloud their minds. While swearing up and down that Bush was a moron who
couldn't even speak right, they simultaneously assigned him conspiracy theories that could only be carried out by an evil genius. According to them,
he planned and directed the 9/11 attacks... possibly the single biggest and most successful conspiracy in the history of mankind. Yet, these same
people accused Bush of being an idiot and wearing an earpiece during his Presidential Debates so that he could be told what to say. To make a long
story short, these posters constantly contradicted themselves. That's what happens when you are consumed with such hatred and have such a negative
obsession with someone, in this case the POTUS.
Someday history will show that Bush was a decent guy, a real visionary, and a great leader that was far ahead of his time. Someday the Middle East
will be free and it will be thanks to Bush and the brave men and women in uniform under his command. But, just as liberals have rewritten history to
give credit where credit isn't due, they will slight Bush because they simply hate the guy. Hate is a terrible emotion to foster. Many of you hated
Bush before he was even elected and long before you ever took the time to learn about him. Sure, he's not perfect. He's far from it. The same
goes for all of us. And, yes, he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and, yes, he has used that to his benefit (albeit never to its full
potential). But that is not his fault. You can't expect someone to divorce their family and change their name simply because they were born
wealthy. Any success he has had or would have had would be attributed to his family name irregardless of his efforts. He has always been in a
lose/lose position as far as his detractors are concerned.
But, now I've rambled on far too long and sort of went off the trail a bit. So, getting back to the original topic: HA HA! TOLD YOU SO!!! If you
don't have the guts to flat out admit you were wrong about Bush serving another term, then so be it. If you are shy and would rather not publicly
admit your foolishness, then feel free to PM me. I will still respect you for recognizing your mistake in a private setting, and I will not make your
Good day to all!
