Obama and Clinton, book-ending the war and constitutional criminal Bush, giving him respectability, even honor as Clinton and Bush are announced as jointly working to help Haitians. It's a good cause, but ends up conferring respectability upon a man who should be treated as a pariah.

It's just about a year. Obama, after using Clinton's former chief of staff John Podesta to fill his administration with Clinton administration DLC DINOs, has followed in Clinton's footsteps, failing to prosecute a former president Bush for the horrific crimes he committed. Clinton let Herbert Walker Bush get away with his criminal role in the Iran Contra Affair. If Clinton had allowed investigations of Bush senior to proceed, the Bush name would have been irredeemably tainted and the US and the world would never have suffered the infliction of George W. Bush upon us.

Now, Obama not only fails to prosecute Bush, who should have been impeached, but for the infamy of Nancy Pelosi, but he honors and glorifies Dubya, sharing the podium with him.

No wonder there are so many Americans ready to repudiate the Democrats for their failures-- failures to prosecute criminal politicians, failure to fire and prosecute Bush appointees in the Justice Department guilty of gross prosecutorial misconduct.

These are massive errors of judgment combined with cowardice-- fear of being skewered by FOX news for doing the right thing. They are errors of judgment because, if investigations and prosecutions were instituted, the right wing assault on the Democrats might have been blunted or deflected as the GOP defended its own. Instead, the Democrats have a wide open flank that is being attacked by right wingers who have not been, in any way, held accountable for all the wrongs that were perpetrated under their watch.

I imagine it will not be long before Obama gives Bush some sort of official honor as well.

For shame!!
