I know the Bush Presidents think it s classy never to speak against an existing President but they are wrong. The mainstream media never thought it was classy and were complicit in the demonization of the Bushes and their policies. The end result is that a majority of the public continues to blame the policies of GWB for the financial recession.
Worst of all they associate the ideas of limited government, lower taxes, free markets and free people as policies that only benefit the rich. The Bushes behavior might be considered honorable and dignified in polite and respectful society, but in the real world of the current culture of the United States, one dominated by a corrupt media, it is tantamount to capitulation of one’s own principles.
The Bushes were wrong not to fight back. They let us down.
