Geoge W. Bush – Presedential Library: coming 2009
“January 19th, President Bush’s last day in office, people will gather … LE for a rally, followed by a march to the WHITE HOUSE with shoes and combat boots .. acting in the spirit of Mutadhar Al-Zaidi, the journalist who threw his shoes at Bush during a press conference “on behalf of the widows, orphans and all those killed in Iraq …”

The ten worst nightmares Bush inflicted on America. By Juan Cole (22.12.2009)
“Here are my picks for the top ten worst things about the wretched period, which, however, will continue to follow us until the economy is re-regulated, anti-trust concerns again pursued, a new, tweaked fairness doctrine is implemented, and we return to a more normal distribution of wealth.”
Balance-sheet of U.S. imperialism. By Gilbert Achcar (Issue 404, September 2008)
“The interests of American imperialism obviously find their ultimate guarantee in military supremacy, but a politico-ideological facelift is a necessary and useful complement. Under Bush, the arrogance and right-wing shift went so far that it seems imperative for the “enlightened” fraction of the American establishment to steer ‘to the left’, at least in words.”

Crimes of the Bush dynasty : From corporate crimes to murder in Iraq. By David Zirin (February 6, 2004)
“The Bush saga – from George W. Bush in the White House today to the great grandfathers on both sides of the family – is the story of four generations amassing their fortunes and achieving the heights of power through the cronyest of crony capitalisms.”

What Matters Now? The Bush/Cheney Legacy. By Dennis Loo (Autumn 2008)
“The reason why the rest of the political leadership class outside of the GOP has been unwilling to stop the Bush regime is because they share with the GOP a fundamental agreement about the rightness and necessity of a U.S. Empire.”
Where to with the Bush Doctrine? By Binoy Kampmark (Autumn 2008)
“In addition to embracing measures of pre-emptive strike against states and terrorist networks, the policy went the distance in relegating the role of multilateral diplomacy to a lowly second tier, along with international institutions, in favor of unilateral force and regime change.”
Bush’s Library: The Kurds, Oil and Missing Records. By Laray Polk (Autumn 2008)
“The history worth telling will include the egregious acts of deception and will be defined, like Nixon’s presidency, by what is missing and known to have been destroyed.”
George W. Bush: A ‘Ficeist’ Leader. By Karyn Strickler (Autumn 2008)
“As we finally enter the cool, breezy era where we are no longer actually living the Bush Presidential nightmare, but contemplating his legacy, you may be wondering how to articulate the tragedy that was America under George W. Bush.”
