My personal feeling is that President Bush is the most vilified President of all time. Mostly wrongly vilified.
I am a registered Republican, though I consider myself very moderate and vote my conscience when at the Ballot Box. Unfortunately, there has not been a decent Democratic candidate since John Kennedy.
The Democratic Party has veered so far to the left that they are inherently detatched from what the common American voter thinks and feels.
After 8 years of a President that had absolutely no respect for his Office or the people that supported him and gave him that status, having a man with the compassion and character of George W. Bush was a refreshing thought.
I voted for President Bush in both the 2000 and 2004 elections and generally belive he has done a fantastic job. There are spots where he has been weak, but his overall performance has been very good.
Unfortunately, the far Left elements in this Country have embarked on a never before seen large scale attack on the man for doing the things that are best for this Country, at home and abroad.
War is no picnic and it's not something that should be entered into lightly, or on a whim. Many have accused this President of going into Iraq for oil and for avenging a failed assassination attempt on his father's life by the former Hitler of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, but the truth is that Saddam was a mass murderer, of his own people, supported terrorist regimes and groups monetarilly and by allowing them to train in his Country and was trying to find ways to amass weapons of mass destruction.
We may not have found massive stockpiles of weapons, or a smoking gun that would lead us to the great find of WOMDs that were/are suspected, but you can bet they were there at one time. If Saddam's regime had cooperated with Inspectors fully, we would have known positively, one way or another, whether he had any stockpiles of WOMDs as we knew he had before and suspected he might still have.
The bottom line is that this man and his regime were extremely dangerous and were a severe threat to our Country and the rest of the civilized World. We rightfully and lawfully invaded Iraq and took down this murderous regime in a successful raid in 2003. I believe our after war strategy was flawed, but who is truly to blame on that front? I say not the President of the United States.
Sure George Bush is the leader of this Country and has great say in our policies, but the real people that are in charge of planning the war and engaging it are those in the Pentagon and Military.
I believe we could be doing much better in stabilizing the region and stopping the terrorists, but the truth is that we will never be able to shut down terrorism around the World, especially when much of the rest of the World refuses to see reality and help with troops and money.
The overwhelming amount of Iraqis wants Democracy and freedom, but have been under Saddam's rule of destruction and devastation for so long they don't know anything else. They want help, but don't know how to defend themselves.
Yes, they are frustrated with the insurgency, occupation and uncertainty, but they definately all want something better. We are giving them that, while at the same time doing what is necessary to protect our Country against regimes such as Saddam's and terrorist masterminds like Bin Laden and Zarqawi.
The Extreme Left in this Country have so distorted the realities of what is truly going on, with the majority Liberal Media and loons like George Soros, Bill and Hill Clinton and their Band of Merry Misfits, as well as the out of touch Hollywood and celebrity types like Michael Moore and George Clooney, that many Americans are truly confused as well.
The fact that we allow these people to manipulate our opinions and dictate our agenda is just as equally appalling. Stand up and let your voices be heard. Don't get caught up in the spin. Make your own observations, free and clear of the manipulations of these looney leftist zealots that attack solely because of the Political affiliation of the man occupying the White House.

I pray for Mr. Bush regularly! Sorry we have become society to ready to belittle anyone who disagree's with us then they trying to elevating their self. A good quote: "be the change you want to see happen." Name calling, belittling is childish behavior and we say we are adult's? Jibberish run amok. |
Thank you President Bush for all your doing that we don't see!
