Judge rules Bush can’t block presidential records.

Today, a federal judge “invalided part of a 2001 order by President Bush allowing former presidents to review executive documents before they can be released under open records laws.” (view full story here: read more)

In reference to this story, I found the following comment. What do you all think:

I love this! Bush tried to illegally change the rules to ensure he could keep all of his secrets hidden after he leaves office. Now that the courts have decided he can’t do this, you just know that the paper shredders are busy working overtime in the White House basement. I can’t wait to see how many more of his lies and crimes are exposed after he’s out of office. At the very least, Bush will be spending the rest of his miserable life hiding from angry American citizens. No more fake crowds of carefully selected fans, no more staged photo-ops with the military. All he’ll have left is hiding on his ranch and peeking through the curtains to see if anyone is coming for him.

  1. It was dubious to begin with. Our government has gone too far, and Bush is just one of the worst in a long line.

  2. Wow… That is a really harsh comment. I certainly do not agree with many of his policies and actions, but I have never doubted his personal integrity. The guy may have the hardest 2 terms in the oval office since the height of the Vietnam War. Give the guy a little grace.

    Again, I make no excuse for his mistakes, but those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. And it is a lot easier to criticize in hindsight than appreciate the enormity fo the stress this president has experienced in 7 years.

    I too am curious to see how history will remember him, but I do not think it will be as a criminal.
