Former President George W. Bush has been enjoying something of a revival in recent months. First there came the news that Bush polls better than the man who replaced him, Barack Obama. Friday, Gallup reported that fewer people than ever view the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as mistakes. No wonder, as Hot Air reported, when Bush opined that we need boots on the ground to settle with ISIS, heads all over the planet nodded silently in agreement. After all, boots on the ground were what finally won the Iraq War during the surge, a victory that President Obama so casually threw away with both hands.
Of course, all the boots on the ground don’t have to be American. The Kurds and certain of the Sunni tribesmen who have not yet been irrevocably alienated by Obama are certainly willing to fight. Given arms and support, they would do so with alacrity. It is not outside the realm of possibility that, also given arms and support, Jordanian and Egyptian troops could add muscle to an anti-Isis coalition. Throw in some American special operators and lots of air power and the days of the Islamic State would be numbered. If Bush were to, by some miracle, become president again, they would be.
We have an inkling that Bush was not as despised as the media would have us believe several years ago when those “Miss Me Yet?” posters started to show up with the former president’s smiling visage. Many predicted that Bush, who left office under a cloud, would in short order become a modern day Truman, only fully appreciated when time and the incompetence of his successor highlighted how good the country had it when he was in charge. That development has come true.
The man made happiest by this development, besides George Bush, is his younger brother Jeb, who also wants to become president. The Bush name may not be as much as a burden as many have thought.
VOTE BEN CARSON, 2016!!
Jeb might be a nice person, but he is also just another politician! Ben Carson, is a genius of a man, and can undo all of the crap Obama is leaving behind-especially the degeneration of race relations in the USA! Ben is not another smooth talking, run of the mill politicians! If you haven’t done so yet, check him out and you will see that he is the best choice.
