Pure Silliness

A writer at the Wall Street Journal thinks Bush has been treated unfairly. Say what?

The treatment President Bush has received from this country is nothing less than a disgrace. The attacks launched against him have been cruel and slanderous, proving to the world what little character and resolve we have. The president is not to blame for all these problems. He never lost faith in America or her people, and has tried his hardest to continue leading our nation during a very difficult time.

Our failure to stand by the one person who continued to stand by us has not gone unnoticed by our enemies. It has shown to the world how disloyal we can be when our president needed loyalty -- a shameful display of arrogance and weakness that will haunt this nation long after Mr. Bush has left the White House.

Let's see: he used a terrorist attack that had the world rallying behind us to launch a foolish war; he systematically gutted the Constitution, he concentrated power in the executive branch, again gutting the separation of powers; he authorized torture; a took a surplus and created the greatest deficits in history; he created bigger social programs (which failed) than any president since Johnson; he refused to allow himself or his staff to testify before Congress on possibly impeachable offenses; and the list could go on.

Unfair? Pure silliness. Sure, the left has made fun of him, but he is an easy target, as are all presidents.

He abandoned this nation and it's ideals, not the other way around.

If poor poor President Bush isn't to blame for all these troubles, who is? Why can we not hold him accountable when he insisted that all the power should lie in his hands?

I know, preaching to the choir here....

"The left made fun of him"??

That is about three orders of magnitude of an understatement, unless attacking every aspect of his character is now considered merely "making fun". Disagreeing with Bush is one thing; the behavior of the Left is something completely, pathetically, different. I think we can be honest about the extreme level of meanness towards Bush and, still, disagree strongly with him if one sees fit to.
