The World's Most Exclusive Club

Yesterday, the Presidents gathered to dedicate the George W. Bush Library. At least Bill Clinton had the nerve to say it was the "latest grandest example of the eternal struggle of former Presidents to rewrite history," although in friendly, humorous tone.

President Obama's remarks reminded me of a performance evaluation you'd give an underwhelming worker whom you don't want to go through the trouble of getting rid of and are hoping will just go away. You struggle to find something good to say and exaggerate that as much as you can to fill in your allotted space.

Perhaps he recognizes that he will have his own library some day to deal with his legacy of not closing Guantanamo, expanding drone attacks to include killing American citizens, prosecuting whistleblowers, and being just as secretive as his predecessor.

Indeed, it is an exclusive club.

Yep. Save some hate for corrupt Bill Clinton, deregulator of the banks, signer of brutally unfair trade agreements, and taker of enormous bribes, er, speech fees.

The three worst presidents in the history of the republic yuck it up asnd congratulate themselves at taxpayer expense.
