In what some are calling an epic 'Freudian slip,' former President George W. Bush accidentally called the invasion of Iraq 'wholly unjustified and brutal' while speaking about Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Bush made the embarrassing gaffe in a speech at his presidential center in Dallas, where he spoke about the importance of fair elections and slammed Russia's autocratic system. 'The result is an absence of checks and balances in Russia, and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq,' Bush said, before shaking his head and correcting himself. 'I mean, of Ukraine.' As the audience fell into awkward silence, Bush muttered


Hahaha, what a card.

No sympathy or support from me Dubya. I quit defending you many years ago. Didn’t have the time, I had to bandage and recover from the many knife stabs you put in my back. You lying, back-stabbing, deceitful betrayer. But you kept your standing with the elite class, which was more important to you than being a good president for our country. A pox on you and your household.

Bushes are a giant stain on Texas. I join many of my W TX friends and neighbors in voting Paxton. We pay that Pee’s defeat in the runoff will finally be the end of the Bush political dynasty. The Bushes have no love for Texas (or the USA) as they stay silent at what Biden, Deep State have done to our state. The fact that a man honored to have been POTUS could be so unpatriotic is disgusting to me.

GW, famous for his capitalism has failed speech, turning over an $800 billion slush fund to Obama, before heading out of office. Many thanks too for the Patriot Act that has allowed the Deep State to prosecute and spy on American citizens. Much of the damage to this country has been done by Republicans, who think they deserve support. Nixon put us on fiat currency that has allowed debt to grow to $30 Trillion, and still growing. Now we have McConnell joining with the Democrats for another $40 billion for Ukraine. Got to love those Republicans. They don't show us much love.

Well, he actually was able to respond since the first Gulf War ended in an Armistice, which is only a stoppage to the war, not an end to the war. Therefore, he was able to return even without the WMD declaration (which was backed by the US intelligence - we know know how much credence to put into their declarations).

The San Francisco Examiner's editorial board wrote a scathing rebuke of the city’s archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone, after he announced he would deny Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Holy Communion, over her staunch support for abortion. (snip) In response, the liberal editorial board blasted the Catholic leader for "punishing" Pelosi, instead of "right-wing politicians" who "[vote] against health care or funding for the poor." They defended Pelosi as a leader who has "consistently fought on the morally right side of these issues," and praised her as a role model for women. The editorial board argued that by denying Pelosi Holy Communion, the archbishop wasn’t being loyal to Christ.
