Here's a pet peeve: Through eight years of the two George W. Bush administrations, I linked hundreds of times to White House and Department of State documents, plus less frequently to other U.S. government departments and agencies. I made efforts to link>

Sounds like the records have only been moved, not erased. Don't see a problem here. Wish we could have "archived" GW Bush sooner!

"..I assumed during those years that the documents, being part of the U.S. government's permanent record, would remain available so long as the government and the internet were functioning Ė in other words, a long time.

I assumed wrong. On coming to office, the Obama administration in an instant removed thousands (millions?) of pages, abruptly making dead and useless all those links to the prior administration's work. Latterly I learned that the Bush administration pulled this same trick against its Clinton predecessor..."

And this doesn't even go into the thousands of Bu$h/Cheney records Scrubbed During the Bu$h League Era/Error!

They are sooooo scared of getting caught it isn't even funny. No wrong - it is funny. Wish people would wake up to all this we as a united nation could really make some people go nuts at the pure thought of us just "knowing".

It's sad that the documents are being moved from their original links. I have linked to many original documents as well. I am glad to hear that there is still at least SOME record being maintained SOMEwhere. Why would the Obama administration want to cover up Bush's evil?

Well maybe because every 10 minutes someoe is putting a snipette of a conversation that was never meant to be public out on the net and distorting the intent.

I've been reading Daniel Pipes for a long time and he is not a "teenager looking for gossip" he is and was a serious journalist looking and researching for the "meat" of his chosen topic.. Some times, as we learned from Nixon, snippet's of personal conversation have been devastating a need to be in the public forum. Other times they may lead to the development of a US policy - also a conversation for the public learn about. These are elected leaders we are supposedly a free and open society, for private conversations, stay out of the Oval Office that records all conversation - so we are told. (who believes that)

I'm hope as soon as Obama is gone his whole useless career will be erased... Nothing for history to remember... An over spending man with little experience for anything.... Making tax payers pay for what we can not afford... His only concern seem to be was to make the Muslims feel good about themselves, some how that was part of his plan for NASA????? strange...

Kit B. (276)

I agree and could fill a couple of volumes with the lack of leadership Bush gave us as Governor of Texas, and yet many felt that holding the office of Governor was gold - standard experience for the White House. Many still think a governorship or Senate seat is enough to steer the ship of State. We most certainly can not depend on what is said in campaign speeches, or even a party affiliation - so what is our guide line?

I look at a candidates early experience. Thier family life and try to discern whether or not they are a person of charachter. I guess for me it is jsut a gut feeling combined with everything I can find to read about them. BTW....I was sooooo right about Obama. My gut told me he would be too radical.

Our government be it Democrat or Republican that is in power I only see what they have done to this country. We were in sad state of affairs when George Bush was in but Obama is scaring me just as much. I believe that there are missing papers from Bushs time in office. Probably the same thing will have the same happen when Obama leaves. They don't want the people of this country to see what CROOKS we have running this country. I find it very SCARY.

President Bush is/was a moron and did nothing for America. He rode Dick Cheneys Halliburton bandwagon as far as he could and then dropped off the side (with a lot of money in his pocket) Are you for real Shirley?
 

Nancy L. (141)
Tuesday July 13, 2010, 2:38 pm
I think Shirley is for real and she is not alone. Bush DID do SOME good. I could post a few good things but no one here wants to see it so I won't. Don't get me wrong, I had many issues with Bush but he certainly was NOT as evil and vile as many try to make him out to be.

To give credit; I still am appreciative of Bush's program of drugs for AIDs to Africa. I knew G.W. Bush when his Dad was president, so my personal impressions of him were not good. Actually he was still drinking and using drugs - so he didn't present a pretty picture.

Perhaps the parents and families of the dead and wounded US troops and the 1.3 million innocent men, women and children slaughtered in Iraq would not agree with you NE.L?
 

Nancy L. (141)
Tuesday July 13, 2010, 2:57 pm
Maybe some wouldn't, but some do. I know many wounded and many who have lost loved ones that do agree. I have 2 nephews there now, well one in Irag and one in Afghanistan. The one in Afghanistan has re-uped twice. He is on his 3rd deployment.

This reminds me of the ancient (Egyptian, Roman) practice of the current ruler wiping out all traces of their predecessor (statues, monuments, etc).. Guess we haven't advanced much. At least the consequences of previous administrations can't be wiped out...which is unfortunate in most cases..as we continue to suffer and try to rectify their mistakes.

A while back, when I was pointing out to everyone that Obama has done a LOT of good things that most don't know about, because it isn't in the media, I decided to see what things Bush did that I agree with. I went to whitehouse.gov and was suprised that I couldn't find anything. So I just figured that the website is reserved for the sitting pres, and the Bush stuff was somewhere else.

I didn't go looking for where else it was, but I'm glad there is a link in this article to where I can find Bush deeds. Because I believe that nobody is all bad, I eventually will look for the things I can appreciate about him.

And Kit, we can thank Bono for creating so much pressure that Bush finally broke down and did something about the AIDS problem in Africa. I'm sure it came with a high price from someone.

We have some optimists here. We know from insider reports during the Cheney/Bush administration that Cheney and Bush BOTH destroyed a lot documents illegally - documents that were supposed to be part of the Presidential Record, there for the benefit of subsequent office holders. We also know the CIA and the Pentagon did the same thing, some of it under orders. There will be pieces that we will never be able to fit together, and I strongly suspect that the destruction isn't ended. Those records could possibly get some "Very Important People" some uncomfortably long prison sentences and possibly even some death penalties. There were a lot of suspicious deaths and orders and actions that were flat-out unconstitutional, even traitorous. Once We the People - not to mention the DOJ's newly vicious attack-do-mentality prosecutors - get the bit firmly between some teeth, DC is going to look like it's been through a blender.

Sorry folks,

BP will not be prosecuted, Halliburton will not be brought to justice, Blackwater will not be tried, GWB or Cheney will not be even questioned by those who have the power to do so. We know who they are. They are the Congress of the U.S. several of you have put your hopes for the next 'experienced' president. They are controlled by the $$$ you don't even see and they will not admit, except in their votes and conduct on issues that need to be addresses such as the ones mentioned here.

Thanks Kit! I wish we could go back and erase the 8 years of Bush/Cheney that put this country in the mess it's in now! And as has been said already, they are too scared to let the People see what they have really done! The new world order/4th reich, is alive and well!

"This is nothing new. Almost every president has done this." Not in wholesale fashion like this. Historians and government officials who deal with such records were horrified. Those records are meant to instruct the following presidents, among other things.

All this damage Bush had done us affected driving schools. We are now in tough economic times. There are now waiting lists on driving schools and I am one of those who can't get driving lessons and I was for half a decade stuck on the written test with having trouble passing it. There are driving schools currently only taking driver's ed students or anyone in high school as long as they are old enough. I have a petition for lower gas prices as gas prices being ridiculous could easily affect driving schools. I also have a sharebook. As we take action to undo all this damage that the Bush/Cheney administration had done us we could write letters to President Barrack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

How it affects driving schools is that those driving schools had to reduce pay rates for driving instructors. There are now waiting lists on driving schools these days. The driving schools couldn't raise thier prices any higher and they pay allot on gas. You people who don't understand this are getting dumb. The cars for the driving schools are rare on my roads. Almost every driving schools has too many people on a waiting list now. I am one of those not getting driving lessons and it's making me mad. We tried everything and all of our nearest driving schools. There are people who it's take a year to a year and a half to get driving lessons. I know someone who was teaching driver's ed for 17 years. I created the latest petition for lower gas prices on this site. The more signatures the better chances of success and within a few years maybe there won't be waiting lists anymore for the driving schools.

Why do you need a driving school? I taught my children to drive.

I need a driving school to reduce car insurance or otherwise I can't afford all those books and comic books. What it has to do with Bush is that the damage he has done us like high gas price affects driving schools. Those of you who can't clearly understand are getting dumb. We know that George W. Bush let the gas prices go up. We know that Bush blamed the democrats on high gas prices.

I have a group for undoing the damage of the Bush/Cheney administration. It's more important that there are so many people looking for jobs than the driving schools on waiting lists.

Here's the petition...

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/ridiculous-gas-prices-costing-driving-lessons/

It has 269 signatures so far. This needs 1,000 or more.

Here's the group below...

I have links for the petition and group for taking action to undo the damage of the Bush/Cheney administration. It's on allot of things affecting us. It could be required by law for first time learners in driving to have behind the wheel at any age old enough to have a permit but it's only the early bird road in New Jersey and could apply soon to the adult and young adult road. It's also common sense to learn first from a driving school to drive. My petition needs 1,000 signatures in total. You people should sign this petition if you haven't. It would be helpful to each other and we'll get confidence and faith in the petition and get enough signatures to help. Most of the petitions don't have enough signatures. I should've done this petition and group almost 4 years ago.

[This is the most important on my activist network. There are high gas prices that affect things but also the economy in the worst shape itís ever been in. This is whatís affecting us in our lives. There are also driving schools on waiting lists as of the economy in bad shape as there had to be cuts on things. This isnít all political or undoing the damage of the Bush/Cheney administration. Letís take action on this one. We are in the worst times of the unemployment rate being high but the great depression was worse and we could go worse than that era. We kind of saw coming in 2007 the economy going in the worst shape as cuts on things have started along with businesses having to cut short on employees or work hour cuts. We kind of saw it coming soon that the economy is in the worst shape and we also need to take responsibility for our own actions. I got into reshaping the world as of not getting driving lessons with having a learnerís permit as driving schools have too many people on waiting lists and most driving schools in the world are on long waiting lists. There are more important reasons to take action for reshaping the world than waiting lists on driving schools like joining emergency services and power companies so people arenít without electricity for too long. There is allot of greed for money as not just oil companies are greedy along with people not greedy put prices of things ridiculous that affect businesses and stock market crashes with the economy out of shape. This petition started off on high gas prices. Letís all take action on reshaping the world as itís mainly on the economy.]

That's also on that link. Part of this is sharing thoughts with politicians. We need more confidence and faith in the petitions part of the problem why they haven't been much useful. Also we should not be selfish or act selfish. People have also been too lazy to sign my petition. You could also sign for so many other people who would sign but not have much of the chance to do so.
