(Minds) Remember how bad a bad president can be. George Bush is, arguably, one of the worst presidents in American history, blindingly leading the country into a war in Iraq, claiming Saddam Hussein had “weapons of mass destruction” that didn’t exist.
Using his power, influence and the fear people were feeling after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Bush rallied the people to war against a foe they knew little to nothing about. Information was spewed in news conferences, owned by ABC, CBS, NBC and other corporate media outlets with similar interests. The internet was just too young to allow people the voice they needed to question the rhetoric.
Bush foolishly sent the country spiraling, flanked by Dick Cheney, who’s corporation, Halliburton, made almost $40 billion in profit in weapons manufacturing during the misguided war.
Crimes aside, it is also important to reflect on how little regard for his position Bush had. In this undercover video, before a presidential speech, Bush is caught acting like an idiot, smiling, winking and just acting all around childish. Then he talks about the war that killed tens of millions with that blank and rehearsed stare.
