The Absurdity of George W. Bush

Archives! Museum! George W. Bush Institute: Education Reform, Global Health, Economic Growth, and Human Freedom.This is the President who started a false war in Iraq ($700 billion-plus), gave Tax Cuts to the superwealthy ($1 Trillion price tag to the U.S. deficit) and whose economic policies resulted in the Great Recession ($700 billion bailout by his Treasury Secretary, Hank Paulson, in 2008).

Results of George W. Bush’s presidency:

– 10 % unemployment, near 20% underemployment
– housing values lopped off
– 401ks obliterated
– stock portfolios (the Dow Jones Industrial Average) cut in half: from a high of 14,000 in October 2007 to a low of below 7,000 in early 2009).
– Iraq War: the Greatest Pyrrhic Victory in U.S. History…4,000-plus U.S. soldiers killed, over 50,000 innocent Iraqi civilians killed, over $1 Trillion wasted.

We could have used those Trillions of dollars (false war, tax cuts for rich and bailout for rich bankers) for our schools, hospitals, roads and bridges…or to build up a renewable energy infrastructure at home.
It is the height of Absurdity that this man is building a library to commemorate his legacy of destruction and economic mismanagement.

Oh, say can you see?…May Day, May Day!!!


We’re gonna talk about what happened in the 2000′s…’cause the kids don’t know. A lot of adults, too. So, here we go!


People ask me why I’m so angry?…

“Obama’s President, so you should be happy.”

The reason why I tell ‘em I’m upset

‘Cause y’all [expletive] still don’t get it

Bush & Cheney raped our country

They used 9-11 just to make some money

Tell me where the hell is Halliburton today?

‘Cause they sure as shit ain’t in the U.S.A.

Started in Houston, ended up in Dubai

Can any y’all listening tell me why?

It’s ’cause of the government scratchin’ their backs

Halliburton got paid, but they didn’t pay tax

Follow the dots, from Enron to A.I.G…

Corruption & Failure is what you get with that Dick Cheney



Oh, say can you see?…May Day, May Day, May Day

Now can we give Peace a Chance?

And strip away layers of Ignorance?


Oh yeah, y’all remember Katrina

The corruption & failure continued with F.E.M.A.

The people in New Orleans

Our sons & daughters

Rescue workers couldn’t even get them water

Like the failure of the war in Iraq

Remember all the bombs? And the “Awe & Shock”?

Bin Laden, Afghanistan…alive and still free

Bush put our Army in the wrong country

More money when it’s “War 4 Oil”!

Not just Halliburton, but also Carlyle

Bush cronies keep lining their pockets

Business is a gun, they’re happy to cock it



Oh, say can you see?…May Day, May Day, May Day

Now can we give Peace a Chance?

And strip away layers of Ignorance?

* Can you hear me?


Behind the scenes the Bush S.E.C.

They ok’d Subprime, Madoff, A.I.G.

This is 8 years after Bill Clinton

He cashed out $200 billion

Bush spent it all, and more out the ass…

Tax cuts for the rich, no-bid contracts

And y’all, guess what else got cut?

Health care for the soldier and his wounded gut

Why did Bush claim God on his side,

When he was shotgun in the Devil’s ride on the sly?

He left one hell of a mess to clean up…

And now he’s back in Texas raising his cup



Oh, say can you see?…May Day, May Day, May Day

Now can we give Peace a Chance?

And strip away layers of Ignorance?


* But I got Hope…for the Future… now that Obama’s President…
