Bush's Legacy

Here's what columnist Mark Shields had to say on this week's "Inside Washington" about George W. Bush's eight years in office:
"Mr. Bush leaves with the lowest job rating of any President since Richard Nixon. The reason is, and it will be history's judgment of him, that George Bush took the United States to war against a country that constituted no threat to us, on a totally bogus claim that the country possessed weapons of mass destruction that constituted a threat to us, which it did not. And in doing it, and in the conduct of the war, he violated one of the most sacred and honored of American values: That is that war truly demands equality of sacrifice. He demanded no sacrifice of any of us. All the sacrifice and suffering was done, and continues to be done, by less that one percent of Americans.

And that is fundamentally unamerican."
