President George W. Bush Uses Golf Tournament to Help Wounded Veterans - ABC News
Does that charity bring them back from the dead? Does it help the 100s of thousands of dead civilians overseas? Please don't defend this American disgrace.

They all charge for speaking....Obama will charge as well when he is no longer President.
The NFL charges for any military appreciation days they do...

So what's the point of the post? Stir up Bush haters because he is doing exactly what every ex president before him has done

Exactly, not sure why this is even news.

Anyhow, this reminds me of the story circulating about Michelle redoing the White House dining room. Oh the horror, until it's unearthed that taxpayers are not paying for it. I don't trust anything I read, reporters are not giving us all the facts. Everyone seems to have an agenda
Exactly!! As for the bolded, not a Michelle fan, but in her defense just about every first lady has redone some room in the White House

President Bush is an American hero that will someday be on Mt Rushmore. He rallied the country to retaliate against Islamic terrorists, captured Saddam Hussein, pushed Osama Bin Laden into hiding so that no terrorist attacks could be launched against America, freed the people of Iraq and gave them their first elections.

Well. I'm a first Gulf war veteran and I think it's pretty rotten. These are guys who fought the wars politicians imagined. It's their blood who paid for it, he should've done it for free.
I got lucky. In 1990 we fought a regular army, and not a bunch of terrorist scum, and they got pummeled. I wish we could have gone all the way to Baghdad then, it would have saved a lot of young men and women from the sh*t they need to endure today...

Bush may be a lot, but an American Hero he will never be.

Perhaps he should be thrown off Mt Rushmore, and that's as close he would get to being on it.

He recruited more Terrorists than Osama could have ever even dreamed of getting, destabilized Iraq and destroyed its infrastructure and economy, throwing them back into the stone age. He killed over 4000 of our Troops and 250,000 plus Iraqi Citizens, tortured and killed prisoners, and set the stage and planted the seeds for ISIL to grow. His picture should hang right along with Hitler's and Mao, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, and other despots in History.
