25. Ah, Bushy-Babes, lest we forget!

As abhorrent and repellent as Bush/Cheney were, Trump is by far so much worse, so much less human, that it is easy to forget the regime that :

-- legitimized torture,
--killed 4,000 Americans in an unjustifiable war the waging of which hinged on lies they knew were lies,
--forced through a Medicare D to the benefit of Big Pharma,
--outed a covert CIA agent,
--authorized total surveillance of American citizens,
--cut taxes for the rich while waging wars on credit (something never done before anywhere, I think)
--creating a runaway deficit which led to a global economic crisis,
--initiated the "you're with us or against us" political stance that began the disintegration of American society into Tea Party activists and their GOP slavish cheer-leaders screaming "treason" to any and all defiers of the regime, and normal people.

to name a few.

Trump made us forget Bush, Bush made us forget climate denying kleptocrat Reagan, and all three have us looking back with a certain nostalgia to Richard Nixon, for chrissakes! What a track record! Yet so many little people remain in the GOP fold and continue to vote for these buzzards.
