Bush cost me my job, my kids and my home
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak my mind. I lost my job this past year. When Clinton was president I was prosperous and secure, but in the past year, we had to close up shop completely. We simply could not compete with foreign labor.
The foreign competition was willing to work long shifts for low pay under very bad conditions. Many of these workers even died on the job but still others carried on. Such competition could hardly be called "fair." I had worked in the same place for 34 years, and now I am completely without a job, and I have even lost my pension. And when I lost my job, not a single government program was there to help me.
How can Bush call himself "compassionate?" Far worse than my job, I lost two of my sons in Bush's evil war in Iraq. They gave their lives for their country, and for what? So that Bush's oil buddies can get rich. My pain of losing my sons is indescribable.
While it is trivial next to the loss of my sons, I regret to say that I also lost my home. I simply have nothing left. How can Bush call himself a Christian when he neglects people like me? I am a senior citizen with various medical problems. I'm not in a position where I can begin a new career. I was reduced to the point where I had to live out in the open, like a beggar, all because of President Bush.
And when the authorities found me there, did they have any compassion for my misfortune and ailments? No, I was arrested. Mr. Bush, I dare you to look me in the face and tell me you are a compassionate man! I dare you to look me in the face and tell me you are a Christian. If I had any money left, I would donate it to the Democrat Party.
As far as I'm concerned, Bush is the worst U.S. President ever. If Al Gore had been elected President, I would still have a job, a home, and most importantly, my dear sons!
Or Andy Rooney.....
Rumor: A man wrote a letter to the editor blaming his current state of affairs (job loss, death of sons in Iraq,...) on President Bush.
