Bush's Legacy: The Greatest American President?

Bush's Legacy: The Greatest American President?
By Beowulf Rochlen and Michael Savage

The Supreme Court's decision today is George W. Bush's most important legacy. For all of his faults, George W. Bush appointed solid conservative justices to the bench. Alito and Roberts, his appointees, along with Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia, defeated Ginsburg and the radical leftist wing of the court.

For decades, liberals insisted that the Second Amendment, which protects our right to keep and bears arms, did not apply to the people. Today, Bush's court asserted that it did apply to the people, that they do have the right to keep and bear arms. Today, Bush's court asserted that the socialists in Washington D.C., and other leftist cities can't keep guns from people who want to defend themselves from thugs and terrorists. Today, Bush's court asserted that liberal statists like Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer who never fired a BB gun in their lives can take their plans for grabbing guns from the American people and return them to the Hague.
Imagine if Gore had won and appointed a corrupt trial lawyer to the court? Imagine if Kerry had won and appointed the head of the ACLU to the court? American freedom was one Supreme Court vote away from falling into the abyss. And it was George W. Bush who pulled it back from the edge.
Because of this ruling, George W. Bush may be remembered as the greatest American president. America was on the verge of boiling over with anger at one liberal decision after another. The fact is that George W. Bush may have prevented a revolution. No Supreme Court in our history has secured our freedoms the way this one has today. Not FDR's court, not Reagan's court, none. This gives power to the people in a way that no other president has been responsible for. Bush has many failings, but when it comes to the core issues of our civilization, he does the right thing.
And so as the election approaches, remember the choice. You have Obama, a leftist socialist who would give us another gun-grabbing Ginsburg on the court, or McCain, who would appoint a conservative like Bush did.
