Thank you, Former President Bush. I disagree with a lot of what you did, but I don’t regret my vote for you. I’d do it again to know that people like you are willing to save lives.
In a question-and-answer session following his speech to the group of local business leaders, the former president also defended his 2003 decision to invade Iraq.
“Getting rid of Saddam Hussein was the right thing to do and the world is a better place without him,” he said according to the paper.
How some people fail to see this, I do not know. The time is gone for reasoning about it; it’s all emotion and memory, but I have no regrets.
Added: In addition to his clarity on this issue, I admire the fact that Mr. Bush refuses to criticize his replacement, while still not equivocating on what is right. He’s a classy fellow.
