George W. Bush was Right.

Back on this date in 2002, president George W. Bush during his State of the Union Address, first used the phrase "axis of evil" to describe the countries of  Iran, Iraq, and North Korea.  Maybe he was comparing them to the original axis of WW2, Germany, Italy, and Japan.  President George W. Bush believed that to precipitate U.S. troop pullout would lead to increased chaos, bloodshed, and eventual terrorist victories. Given the recent dramatic events in Iraq, it looks like Mr. Bush knew what he was talking about.  To read more on that subject, go to this link.

Well, I would say that his prediction was dead on and it has all come to pass.  I liked him as a president and as a person.  I didn't know that he was also a fortune teller (grin).  He showed compassion to the military men and especially to the wounded and would visit them at their bedsides in the hospitals.  The more one looks back and reviews his terms in office, the more we realize that he was mostly right.

I didn't mean to make this post sound political, but since it was about what he said in his State of the Union Address, it had to have some politics mixed in with it.  Now, have a great day, you hear? 


  1. Lets agree that we disagree and leave it at that my friend .

  2. I always comment on your blog... I hesitated yesterday... so, thanks Ted for coming to my rescue... and thanks, Dizzy for being the good person that you are.

  3. Always feel free to say what ever you want to me. Sometimes I need criticism and sometimes I don't. Either way, I am always open to suggestions or the other side of the story.

  4. liked both bushes. with you on this too.

  5. Hey, compared to the last 7 years, anyone would look better.

  6. I am with you on this one. I liked George Bush and he was right about the Axis of Evil. Look where we are today.

    1. That is the point I was trying to make. He was right about the Axis of Evil, and it didn't matter what political party he belonged to.
