Charles Manson should have had Barbara Bush for a mother.

I understand a lot of people associate George W. Bush with the Nazi's. Prescott Bush's Nazi profiteering doesn't help to disassociate that notion. Bush has committed unspeakable war crimes, utterly destroyed the foundations for freedom in this country and he is responsible for killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people in his War On Terror. The constant barrage of propaganda that streams out of the White House is all written using the Nazi playbook - lie, lie, lie until they believe you.

That said, there may be another analogy that fits Bush to a tee and that is Charles Manson. Manson had mind-numbed followers whose beliefs and devotion to Manson was steel-strong. The same can be said for the Bush diehards. They excuse everything. Actually, they never acknowledge any wrong doing in the first place. They embrace Bush, the war, the piles of dead bodies while at the same time putting another flag pin on their lapel. They ignore the torture memos, the death squads, the concentration camps and staged crowds cheering "Bush, Bush, Bush" while the rest of the world looks on in horror.

Bush is not held accountable by the GOP or the Democrats. The absolute worst President in American history and undeniable war criminal has had the yoke of impeachment taken "off the table" by Nancy Pelosi. That makes her an appeaser in my eyes.

So what is the main difference between Manson and Bush? Manson never had a powerful father and grandfather there to bail him out of trouble. He never had the GOP backing him up and rallying to his defense whenever when broke another international law. He was never a Skull & Bones man.

He never had Barbara Bush as a mother.
