One by an Idiot we had to endure for 8 LONG years,
the other by a far wiser man who is trying to right all the wrongs left by the Idiot.


FOCUS | John Scripsick: Bush's 4th of July Celebration
John Scripsick, Truthout: "It's good to see that Woodward, Oklahoma, invited George W. Bush to their 4th of July celebration. Some days I feel sorry for this poor, lonely man. His dream of being rich and famous took him to be the leader of our great nation. My satisfaction as an Oklahoma farmer and rancher is the rain that comes in July or August to carry a cow herd 'till fall. I wonder what Bush will say in his 40-minute speech. I'm sure it will be sprinkled with patriotism, independence, and how we were only attacked once during his presidency."

VIDEO | President Barack Obama's Fourth of July Address
President Barack Obama: "These are some of the challenges that our generation has been called to meet. And yet, there are those who would have us try what has already failed; who would defend the status quo. They argue that our health care system is fine the way it is and that a clean energy economy can wait. They say we are trying to do too much, that we are moving too quickly, and that we all ought to just take a deep breath and scale back our goals. These naysayers have short memories. They forget that we, as a people, did not get here by standing pat in a time of change. We did not get here by doing what was easy. That is not how a cluster of 13 colonies became the United States of America."
