Bonnie Raitt joins the ranks of entertainers who are critical of George Bush

The nine time Grammy award winner, Bonnie Raitt, received a thunderous applause from her Swedish audience at the Stockholm Jazz Festival,  when she said: "We're gonna sing this for George Bush because he's out of here, people!", and then she broke into her song “Your Good Thing (Is About to End)".   

George Bush is not one of Sweden’s most favorite people.  They view him with a very skeptical agenda over Bush’s war in Iraq, and they would not support Bush’s war call. 

Meanwhile, Bush has been quoted as saying that he wants to be known as a president of peace.  This directly contradicts the fact that America was a three front war going, and the US has had a war of words with countries that do not line up with American ideology. 

Is the world a safer place after Bush’s tenure in office?  Not so says the UN.
