Wall Street Journal: Bush’s Real Sin Was Winning in Iraq

In a few hours, George W. Bush will walk out of the Oval Office for the last time as president. As he leaves, he carries with him the near-universal opprobrium of the permanent class that inhabits our nation’s capital. Yet perhaps the most important reason for this unpopularity is the one least commented on.

Here’s a hint: It’s not because of his failures. To the contrary, Mr. Bush’s disfavor in Washington owes more to his greatest success. Simply put, there are those who will never forgive Mr. Bush for not losing a war they had all declared unwinnable.

Here in the afterglow of the turnaround led by Gen. David Petraeus, it’s easy to forget what the smart set was saying two years ago — and how categorical they all were in their certainty. The president was a simpleton, it was agreed. Didn’t he know that Iraq was a civil war, and the only answer was to get out as fast as we could?

The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee — the man who will be sworn in as vice president today — didn’t limit himself to his own opinion. Days before the president announced the surge, Joe Biden suggested to the Washington Post he knew the president’s people had also concluded the war was lost. They were, he said, just trying to “keep it from totally collapsing” until they could “hand it off to the next guy.”

For his part, on the night Mr. Bush announced the surge, Barack Obama said he was “not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in Iraq are going to solve the sectarian violence there. In fact, I think it will do the reverse.”

Three months after that, before the surge had even started, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pronounced the war in Iraq “lost.” These and similar comments, moreover, were amplified by a media echo chamber even more absolute in its sense of hopelessness about Iraq and its contempt for the president.

Mr. Bush’s success in Iraq is equally infuriating, because it showed he was right and they wrong. Many in Washington have not yet admitted that, even to themselves. Mr. Obama has. We know he has because he has elected to keep Mr. Bush’s secretary of defense — not something you do with a failure.

    First time visitor. I lean to the left, but upon reading your site for about an hour, I get the impression that the right says the same thing the left says about the right, only in different words. I know great, sincere and honest people on both sides and I trust there are even more at much higher levels.

    The Repubs seem to have an “I’ve got to tell you the way it is” power-trip arrogance and enjoy scarring and naming, quiet loudly, the “Liberals”, much like your very laughable

    Fox News. It is no wonder they have never won any journalistic Awards for News Excellence or of any kind.

    The Dems can’t seem to get out of their own way, but at least there are more vegetarians in the group who understand that global warming is not a manufacturer of cold weather bedding.

    Not all Democrats are far to the left and I can see here that not all Republicans want to start another Crusade (although some of you guys really scare me enough to think it’s within you. ..remember that murdering in the name of a god is an oxymoron but somehow always justifiable).

    The real problem we face now is the exposure of the worthless value of money and the Corrupt governments, religions and financial systems that got us here. Know any Banks or Investment firms that have imploded lately? *Are they mostly in the US or..?

    The quest for power, control and one groups “ideals” in the name of ancient desert Gods and beliefs have killed and injured more people than anything in our history and it still continues today. The fact is, Hate is part of humanity and history and old desert ancient myths and religious writing support it – in writing. Hate must Die.

    Interestingly, do you know anyone that’s been murdered in the name of Buddhism? None to speak of. Think about that for a moment. Buddhism is not about power, control over
    society, or things, posessions, or land. It’s about understanding and become enlightened or wise. And I’m not a Buddhist.

    What scares a lot of people I know is how those who have not traveled or experienced outside of their own US State or coutry can make so many judgements of other cultures without finding out first hand, without spending some time with different cultrues and families from other parts of the world before forming their own opinion.

    With a US approval rating of 19% GWB truly was one of the least popular and worst Presidents in modern history. To be fair all Presidents approval rating falls at the end of their 4.

    You wanna know what the rest of the world’s approval rating of Bush was? When you look around the world you get a sense of how bad his administration destroyed our country’s standing and once good name.

    Obama made a good point once, really got my attention. He said “Experience? Let me tell you this – the most experienced people in the world have been running this country for the past 7 years and look how we’re doing now.”

    One Bush quote I’ll remind you of, “If this were a dictatorship, it’d be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator.”

    I’ll take the way our country was before GWB and his “experienced people” stepped in to office over what it is today. There was jobs, we had money, there was value. Production.

    I say do away with both Dems and Repub parties – how about the United States of America Party, just one, create infrastructure, businesses, jobs, products.

    Live with purpose to help others.

    [Hi Dale,

    The problem with the left is that much of what they claim is demonsterably untrue, misguided or designed to paint the facts in a false light and what you have said here is no different. There are very few intellectually honest leftists. Allow me to use your post as an example.

    You implty that Fox news is bad. Well Look at this study from the Pew Research Center which shows that Fox news was the most fair and the least biased.

    The Best (least biased) and the Worst (most biased) news coverage?

    Positive Obama Stories 25%
    Positive McCain Stories 22%
    Negative Obama Stories 40%
    Negative McCain Stories 40%

    Positive Obama Stories 73%
    Positive McCain Stories 10%
    Negative Obama Stories 14%
    Negative McCain Stories 43%

    TOTAL COVERAGE (all media added together – 2,412 stories from 48 outlets)
    Positive Obama Stories 36%
    Positive McCain Stories 14%
    Negative Obama Stories 29%
    Negative McCain Stories 57%

    In fact, Howard Wolfson who was the communications director for the Hillary Campaign said that Fox Was the Most Fair and Accurate during the election and he has said so multiple times.

    Dale, Fox News, unlike the elite media culture, doesn’t demean the traditional, libertarian or conservative point of view. There are other studies besides Pew that have come to similar results. These facts are not honestly deniable, yet I have no doubt that you will continue to trash Fox News. If you do, it just means that you are intellectually dishonest.

    Your crack about “murdering in the name of God” is silly and dishonest and it is another example of being grossly intellectually dishonest. The left commonly makes use of bogus moral equivalencies

    It’s always the same with these bogus equivalences: They start by pretending loftily to find no difference between aggressor and victim, and they end up by saying that it’s the victim of violence who is “really” inciting it. – Chris Hitchens

    You are trying to draw an equivilence between jihadists and Christians simply because you either dont like Christians, are a christophobe or are simply a religious bigot. There is no moral equivcalency and normal Americans see that clearly.

    Now lets talk about the worlds approval rating of President Bush. It was so bad that France and Germany threw out their anti-American governments and put in pro-American ones. In Africa, Bush is the most popular president in history and Bush enjoys good approval ratings in China. Also consider that this administration waged no public relations war to speak of to engage people or the administrations critics.

    As far as low approval ratings, history shows that all wars are unpopular over time. Truman and Wilson had lousy ratings and Winston Churchill was not re-elected. LBJ ran the Vietnam War very poorly, but even if he ran it well he still would have had poor ratings.

    Now lets take on your argument that “republicans have run the country 7 years and look hwo they are doing now”. The Bush Admionistration and Senate Republicans fought for mortgage reformn in Congress since 2001. All attempts filibustered by Democrats. All of the evidence and video and hearing transcripts are posted on this very web site. Bush won a war that you guys said was lost. In fact your party invested almost all of its political capital in counting on the war being lost.

    Until 2006 the economy was doing great and the numbers prove this without reasonable doubt, but the other thing that snuck up on us was the lack of energy policy reform, which democrats have blocked and blocked and blocked for decades.

    Dale said – One Bush quote I’ll remind you of, “If this were a dictatorship, it’d be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator.”

    Anyone who looks at that comment in context can tell that the president was obviously cracking a joke – you knew that, yet you deliberately decided to present in it another light. Again rank dishonesty on your part and this is just another example of what the far left does on a regular basis.

    In your other post you made a crack about “bad intelligence” as an attempt to dodge the fact that Obama just plain lied about a guy he has known a long time and chose as his education secretary. The youtube link below is to the testimony of lead Iraqi Weapons Inspector Charles Deulfer. His report basically says that Saddam destroyed most of his WMD stockpile in secret and wanted his local enemies to think that he still had the stockpile so they would not move against him. Saddam maintained the programs and raw materials to start rebuilding his old stockpile in months. Saddam was required to give up all WMD and the programs under UN supervision. Saddam was nearly totally successful at getting around the sanctions.

    The full text of the Deulfer and Key Inspection Team reports are online and show clearly that the elite media just didn’t tell the whole truth about them.

    So where does this leave us? Every “fact”, statement, and implied narrative you have presented is either demonstrably false outright, not honestly represented, or so grossly incomplete that it crosses the line. If you think you have what it takes to demonstrate with varifiable evidedence that I am wrong, consider this your personal invitation to try – many have and all have failed. Good luck. – Editor]

    The democrats aren’t relying on vegetarianism alone to limit global warming. Abortion is their preemptive strike. If they had a moral bone in their body they’d understand it’s a lot hotter in hell than it could ever get here.

    It is not bi-partisanship to slander the president. It is not honest to lie. Abortion and embryonic stem cell research are not Christian… Yet, someone who is a hypocrite, liar, and murderer would gain the approval of those of the opposite view.
