Interesting post, and it does take stones to admit being wrong on a given subject. However, the Bush Administration's record speaks for itself and in many circles it is considered as a gross dereliction of duty. I think I will refrain from the laundry lists of missteps, but there were many of them, to say the least. My opinion of the Bush Administration is that I have no opinion. I have never held the office of President, so how could I comment from my cushy arm chair about the ins and outs of the position.
However, some of his knee-jerk decisions enabled the current administration to make their radical decisions hold weight in Washington. How can I put it simply, he set precedent for the Obama Administration to do what they are doing at present. In other words, some of his legislative policies could open the door to tyranny down the road, if the mistakes of Bush are not corrected. Just my speculative analysis on the subject.
I think we have to wait for the dust to settle to see how history judges the most controversial Presidential Administration since Richard Nixon in the seventies. Let the overly zealous froth at the mouth over this controversial subject making its way to the board, but it has a right to be here along with many others, for thoughtful debate. Keep up the good work, and keep the hard and unpopular topics coming!

I am not going to respond any further, as you have taken much of the thread out of contex to suit your purposes, and I refuse to play that game with you.
I simply stated my opinion on a Discussion Forum which has a motto of Deny Ignorance in response to a ludicrous thread.
If you'd like to disown your own thread, don't let me stop you. (In this case, I don't blame you.) The old expression about staying out of the kitchen if you can't take the heat comes to mind.
