The evisceration of President Bush by film-maker Michael Moore, in his 2003 smash hit documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11, was so hardcore, even people who didn't like the president were left shocked by the depth and breadth of Moore's claims of criminal negligence by the Bush White in the months leading up to the September 11 attacks, and the storm of lies and distortions that led up to the War On Iraq.
Of course, watching Fahrenheit 9/11 today you realise that Moore 100% right about White House foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks and the way Bush Co. made the case for war, knowing there was little, if any, truth behind most of their claims for why America had to attack Iraq.
It just took a few years for most of the rest of America to see that Moore was telling the truth about the president, and the Cheney-controlled White House.
Moore claims he holds no hard feelings towards President Bush, and why would he? Fahrenheit 9/11 made Moore an extremely wealthy man and sealed his reputation as one of the world's most powerful, and controversial, documentary makers.
Moore's new film, Sicko, is another devastating portrait of Bush's America, this time focusing on a failing health care system that leaves people bankrupt paying for life-saving operations, and sees 9/11 Ground Zero workers forced to go to Cuba to get the specialised help they need to deal with their life-threatening, 9/11 dust induced, lung problems.
When asked about Bush recently, during promotional work for Sicko, Moore said :
"I would wish him well, and ask him to please bring the troops (in Iraq) home."
And yes, that was the longest introduction to a one-line quote we've written so far.
