Tony Blair has revealed in his recently published autobiography, "Tony Blair, A Journey," that years after they both left office he is still George W. Bush's poodle. In his book Blair vigorously defends George W. Bush, Bush's actions and Blair's own relationship with Bush. Blair never explains whether this is done out of a desperate need to justify his crimes in dragging the United Kingdom into the Iraq war or because he's an extremely poor judge of character.
Tony Blair was a successful lawyer, politician and ultimately Prime Minister of the United Kingdom for ten years. George W. Bush was president of the United States from 2001-2009 subsequent to being a smirking goober whose only accomplishment was executing a record number of Texans. Blair, once widely admired, tied his fortunes to Bush's in the Iraq war and lives in shame to this day.
"A Journey" In Self Justification
Blair's addiction to fabrication of evidence that began at the run-up to the Iraq war continues in "A Journey" with several personal observations of former President Bush that have never been verified. The former Prime Minister says of the man who is morally culpable in the murder of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, tens of thousands of Afghans and thousands of allied soldiers that Bush's appeal was as "a normal guy." Evidently at a loss for new material, Blair states the obvious when he said that Bush saw the world with "immense simplicity." Truly desperate to make the publisher-mandated wordcount Blair also claims Bush was "very smart." When making these assertions Blair never makes clear if it's the reader or himself he's trying to convince.
Loyal to the man who forced him to perjure himself and drag his unwilling nation into war and then abandoned him leaving him alone to end his career in disgrace, Blair truly is Bush's best friend. Bush, when reached for comment, said, "Blair? Oh yeah. I think he's the only person who thought Iraq had WMD. What a clown."
