NY Post Editorial Dubya Speaks
June 5, 2010 Former President George W. Bush, who's kept a dignified low profile in the year and a half since he left office, made a splash this week with a vigorous defense of some of the most contentious decisions of his incumbency.
And good for him.
Asked at a Grand Rapids, Mich., forum Wednesday night about his decision to authorize the waterboarding of al Qaeda mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed, Bush said he'd "do it again to save lives."
The invasion of Iraq to topple Saddam Hussein? It "was the right thing to do, and the world is a better place without him."
The 43rd president himself has admirably refrained from criticizing his successor, but his tone provides a refreshing contrast to Barack Obama's frequent equivocations.
Bush understood the threat from radical Islam that the country faced and was dogged in his response to it.
That's the kind of resolve that can overcome a litany of mistakes.
The former president clearly also understands that a confident and honorable nation doesn't need to apologize for the hard calls it makes to keep itself safe.
Keep talking sense, Dubya.

Wow. The perpetual doormat actually shows some life and speaks up to defend himself. Don’t think this will last. He’s always been perfectly content to bend over and take it from liberals and political enemies.
I miss him & Laura alot.
Wish I had a similar sign on my property here in Nevada.
There were plenty of folks who got really angry with Pres. Bush for not talking back to the press, when they said ugly things about him. We see now, though, with Barack Obama, just how petulant that looks, and how petty he seems when he does it. Pres. Bush looks like a real statesman, in comparison.
A guy I work with is going to see how much it costs to get a billboard - I don’t think it’s too expensive, especially when several people pool their money together.
Does W support recent AZ legislation?
Thank you - I appreciate the compliment!
Thank you very kindly!
Like I said, I have been assured by someone well-positioned to know that it was exactly such - a deliberate, preplanned feint in every respect - including advance consent of Meiers, and the fact that the vetting of now-Chief Justice Roberts was already well underway...None of what happened in that scenario was accidental. The Bush team knew the tendencies of the loony lib left cold - and played them against themselves - in full view of a salivating media machine.
Harriet not only knew in advance - she consented.
Kool-Ade in this case involves swallowing the dominant media-promoted paradigm - which is, that Bush ever intended that she be confirmed as a SCOTUS appointee.
That one is for people who neither think for themselves, nor have well-placed political contacts. I think outside of the box, and ask questions of those I know have answers.
I recommend the grape, BTW...others who drink it say it covers up bad flavours. LOL!!
If that's true, then that was very admirably played.
I said I loved the idea, not that I believed it!
