As incredible as that may sound, President George W. Bush tells us in an interview with his sister, Doro Bush Koch, that not only did he not sell his soul while making difficult decisions in the White House, he actually told her that "I darn sure wasn't going to sacrifice my values."

Oh Really?  What values might that be, Sir?  The values you learned growing up that included do unto others before they do it to you?  Art for art's sake, money for God's sake?  Profits before People?  Repeat the lie over and over again until it becomes common knowledge that the lie is fact?  Sulk at all times when not given exactly what you want and then try to do damage to whatever or whomever that didn't agree with you (like the American people, Georgie)?

From CNN:

Reflecting on his eight-year presidency, President Bush said above all he would like to be remembered as a commander-in-chief who remained faithful to his values and "did not sell his soul in order to accommodate the political process."

In an interview with his younger sister, Doro Bush Koch, the president said he was forced to make several difficult choices during his tenure in the White House, but added "I darn sure wasn't going to sacrifice [my] values."

"I came to Washington with a set of values, and I'm leaving with the same set of values," Bush told Koch in an interview taped earlier this month that aired on National Public Radio Thursday.

Let's have a look at what your values brought us, Mr. Bush.

o  Contrived fear fed to the public in large doses.

o  Invading Iraq.

o  Invading Iraq on the premise of absolute lies made up by the neo-cons.

o  Invading Iraq because you wanted to profit from the war.

o  4,200 dead American's in Iraq.  Likely a million dead Iraqi's.

o  Mission Accomplished, you arrogant bastard!

o  Katrina.  Brownie.  Hell of a job.  New Orleans still in shambles.

o  Alberto Gonzales,Donald Rumsfeld,Condi Rice, Vlad(the Impaler)Cheney.  

o  Stem cell research set back years.  

o  Spying on Americans.  Jeebus, Bush!  WTF?

o  Blackwater mercenaries / Halliburton kickbacks.

o  Cronies profiteering from the American people.

o  Wiping your ass with the Constitution.

o  Laughing at the Rule of Law.  Two Americas, indeed...

o  In general hatefulness shown to anyone not in your personal circles

o  Financial ruin of a nation that may never overcome the damage.

o  You tell me in the comments.  I could go on all day...

The beginning of this run on sentence that you spewed may very well be the most damning of anything you could possibly say at this point in your obviously horribly failed Presidency.

"I'd like to be a President (known) as somebody who liberated 50 million people and helped achieve peace;

Three hundred million Americans were held hostage by your fucking values, Mr. Bush.  Thousands died on your watch.  An entire country enslaved that you in your words stated were "liberated."  

Values are something humans have.  Mr. Bush, you are no human.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
