As you probably have heard, a few days ago Bill Maher shocked his liberal guest — and much of the world — by stating very correctly and succinctly that it is “liberal bullsh_t” to equate Christianity and Islam with respect to terror.
The bluntness, not to mention the shocking accuracy of the statement from this particular source, had the social media universe all lit up over the weekend. It was surely my first “fist pump” ever in response to Maher.
Moreover, it is very instructive when juxtaposed with a not so shocking statement made in an interview over the same weekend by former President George W. Bush in the run-up to the opening of his “Presidential Center.” He insisted, perhaps trying to retroactively justify his tepid use of the bully pulpit during his years in office, that he saw “no need to defend (myself)” against criticism and that “I did what I did — and ultimately history will judge.”
Perhaps it has escaped the former President that history is already judging, and not so kindly. In a manner of speaking, the last four Presidential candidates have run against him, including the last two from his own party. So scared of having anything to do with Bush was the Romney Campaign that they shied away from trying to shed any truth on the subject of bin Laden’s death for example, ceding a major issue to an opponent who clearly detested every single operation that led to this success in the first place.
