    By the time you're calling something an "axis," do you even need to add "of evil?" An axis of *anything* sounds pretty sinister: axis of puppies, axis of crayons, axis of taxis. Really, it tells the whole story.

    The Democratic Party seems to want to keep Republican in the mix even after all they’ve put Americans through. I can only imagine they’re doing it for Republican votes in 2022. Trying to keep establishment Republicans is more of a liability than it’s worth in my humble opinion. Democrats should just repeal the filibuster and do as much good as they can. Trust that’ll pay off. That’s an unbeatable strategy, one Republican seem morally and politically incapable of matching.

    I still don't believe 9/11 was Al-Qaeda's idea. I don't care how unpopular or “distasteful” or outdated that idea is, I've sat and thought about it myself and it doesn't make a lick of sense to me. Bush scored the biggest pay-off in the history of the world with 9/11 his sword and shield.

    Bush and the Iraq war murdered up to 1 mil people and completely destabilized the area, leading to the creation of isis. The US has murdered up to 150k civilians in Afghanistan since 2001. Oh and we just backed a reactionary coup in Bolivia and fawn all over - as well as arm - the Saudis who are behind a genocidal campaign in Yemen. Want to honestly and factually evaluate candidates for an “Axis of evil?” Start with the USA...

    America sent an army halfway around the world to oust a dictator it formally supported. The gas weapons Hussein was accused of using, were sold/provided by Donald Rumsfeld during the REAGAN administration. Not a SINGLE ONE of the reasons given by George W Bush, during that particular State of the Union address were the reasons listed in the arrest and execution of Saddam Hussein. HOW MANY AMERICANS even bothered to care to watch any of the trial of Saddam Hussein ?? The very notion of JUSTICE has been warped beyond recognition since the REHNQUIST court. 😑🇺🇸

    I've said it many times during the travesty of the previous administration and that is that 45 becoming President was the best thing to happen to Bush because his own crimes are now being ignored. Every show that he appears for interviews they treat him like the Dalai Lama. It is damn insane.

    Absolutely, I just can't believe he has no shame... The Bush's father and son are part of the worst, darkest years in America... That's what's still wrong, some Republicans, including the Lincoln project and democrats like the Obama's the Clinton's, etc...like to "make that everything alright" that Trump is the culprit all... Wrong, it all started with Reagan and if they do not acknowledge that, nothing will work... To make it right, they have to go deep to clean it all...😤💪🙏

    @eclectrickery Thank you for solving that mystery for me, I got that the cartoon lady was referencing something recent, but had no clue he was on Ellen and Jimmy. I think Leno also did something recently where he hung out with him on his farm in his pickup truck or something. That is only now coming to mind.

    @John Polishimpossible2say Gracious of you to accept these sneering overreactions to your simple question with such good humor! To answer you, GWB was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel the other day, very chatty and chummy, and also on Ellen Degeneres (I didn't see it). The cartoon is disapproving of that and I guess, Stephen wouldn't have him on his show or would ask the hard questions if he did? Comments are reacting to that. I'm not making any. Haven't watched Biden's speech yet. Hope that sheds some light :0)
