No Thanks

Gotta hand it to Shrub - hubris, blindness, and blasphemy all rolled up into one bite-sized platitude. Personally, I will thank God when Bush is either back in Crawford for good or decked out with a toe-tag (politically speaking, at least).

Think Progress » Bush: America will ‘thank God’ for Iraq in 50 years.
Bush: America will ‘thank God’ for Iraq in 50 years.

Speaking before the Republican Governors Association yesterday, President Bush took a moment to predict the future, claiming Americans will ultimately be thankful for his foreign policy decisions:

I believe 50 years from now, people will look back at this period of time, and say, thank God the United States of America did not lose its faith in the transformative power of liberty to bring the peace we want for our children and our grandchildren.

The notion of the public thanking the almighty for Iraq is becoming increasingly popular with Bush cronies. Karl Rove said last week, “I think that people will look back at the Iraq war and say ‘Thank God, he [Bush] had the courage to do what he did.’”
