  •  Great summary (13+ / 0-)

    Bush is the first ex-POTUS to use his library to whitewash his egregious record on Iraq.  I'm sure it's the basis for how future textbooks will cover the debacle.

    •  This is not quite true. (4+ / 0-)

      Nixon's library exhibits were extremely pro-Nixon while he was alive and in charge.  The "perspective" exhibits came later.  Ditto Ronnie Reagan's library - you won't see anything about Iran Contra there.

      Still enjoying my stimulus package.

    •  What's frightening... (3+ / 0-)

      ... is that most/all textbooks for our schools are written and printed in Texas.

      Now that thought will send a genuine thrill of terror down one's spine when one remembers the fundies (who don't "believe in theories" and think dinosaurs and humans once co-existed) own Texas, lock, stock, and barrel, from the state legislature to the little town mayors.

      Can we stomach that much ignorance in our students?

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
