Hat Tip To Dan.
There is no way to state how galling and unseemly this news is concerning President Bush. For lying to America and invading a nation based on political calculations should have placed Bush in front of the Hague. Instead he is making money on his actions. There is just no end to what one can read about in the news!
Bush charged $100,000 to speak at a charity fundraiser for U.S. military veterans severely wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, and former First Lady Laura Bush collected $50,000 to appear a year earlier. The former President was also provided with a private jet to travel to Houston at a cost of $20,000.
If Bush is going to take blood money he should at least fess up and admit in his speeches that ideological priorities took precedent over sound public policy. More often than not there were serious lapses in judgment and worse when it came to the Bush Administration. But over time there has never been true accountability for their actions. The out-of-control mess as a result of the political decision to invade Iraq is creating worldwide concerns about terrorism and leaves the Middle East in chaos. Too many soldiers on both sides of the conflict in Iraq died for nothing but an uneducated man sitting in the White House as a result of the Supreme Court granting him the election only to then have him place this nation into a needless war.
And now Bush is making money on that hell he placed our nation and our soldiers into!
