Imagine how much better we would be without Bush

I was intrigued by a letter writer’s comments on his imagination regarding President Obama. It provoked me to do some of my own imagining.

Yes, imagine if President George Bush would not have invaded Iraq when there was no evidence of there being a direct threat to America. Imagine if 4,500 American soldiers didn’t have to die, and another 32,000 were not maimed and dismembered, and still countless others who suffer from PTSD? Imagine if the billions spent on the war were used to better life in America? Imagine if America were not moving toward being a country of disparate wealth? Imagine if we actually took global warming and the destruction of the environment seriously? Imagine if Americans came to our senses on reasonable gun control measures rather than hiding behind the Second Amendment? Yes, just imagine that, too.
