George Bush Failed to Get Bin Laden. Period. End of Story.

The right desperately wants to save face by giving George W. Bush credit for getting Osama Bin Laden.  Last Sunday was a full court press as former Bush officials outnumbered Democrats 5 to 2 on the Sunday morning political news shows.  In reality, President Bush's own words and actions record a history of failure, incompetence and a galling lack of interest in catching bin Laden.  Think Progress has created a time line of these to prove it.

Eric Cantor can try to spin the narrative to include Bush when he thanks President Obama for "following the vigilance of President Bush in bringing Bin Laden to justice".  Unfortunately, for him and the rest of Bush's cheerleading squad, history has already recorded the true story of Bush's absolute failure.
