To the Editor, Lowell Sun:

Someone should tell Dr. Susan Clark-Cook to take her medications—and then instruct her on who to write a cogent argument.

She claims President Bush—whom she disrespects by calling him Mr. Bush—lied to us about many important issues. Yet she fails to mention any evidence that he has lied to us even once.

She claims President Bush has entered us into a pre-emptive war for the first time in American history. I would suggest the good doctor read the Constitution of the United States and then remember that Congress authorized force against Iraq in both 1991—which war had not ended as we only entered into a ceasefire which Saddam Hussein violated on a daily basis—and again prior to the current engagement in Iraq. If Dr. Clark-Cook would study American history, she would learn that we went to war several times as preemptive measures. The war against the Barbary Pirates is an example of a preemptive strike against terrorist thugs.

President Bush does have an exit strategy. His exit strategy is event driven, not timetable driven.

Of course President Bush has appointed his friends to office. Would Dr. Clark-Cook suggest he appoint his enemies to such positions? She also makes the claim that those individuals the president have appointed are “usually totally unsuitable” for the positions to which they have been appointed. Excuse me? “Usually” implies almost always. “Totally unsuitable” implies those individuals possess neither the knowledge nor the skills nor the abilities nor the competencies to perform the jobs to which they have been appointed. Once again Dr. Clark-Cook does not present the names of any individuals whom President Bush appointed who were “totally unsuitable” for the jobs to which they had been appointed. With the exception of FEMA Director Brown I cannot think of one appointee who was “totally unsuitable”. Apparently the United States Senate approved President Bush’s tens of thousands of appointees. (The United States Senate must approve the appointment and the promotion of every military officer President Bush nominates. I am certain the tens of thousands of military officers appointed and promoted by the President are among those the good doctor considers “usually totally unsuit¬able”.)

It appears apparent from the comment that “This (the appointment of “friends” who are “usually totally unsuitable” alone should be impeachable…” indicates Dr. Clark-Cook is unfamiliar with the impeachment clause of the U.S. Constitution. While the Constitution does not specify the “crimes” for which a President can be impeached, Article II, Section 4 notes that impeachment is for serious violations. That section reads, “The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” I must have been asleep when it became a “high Crimes and Misdemanor” for a President to appoint people whom Dr. Clark-Cook deems “totally unsuitable”. I checked the Constitution and failed to find her name there nor any reference to appointments being cleared with the medical community.

Dr. Clark-Cook also makes the charge that President Bush has authorized “warrantless wiretaps” yet provides no evidence that he has done so. I suspect she believes that the data mining being performed by the National Security Agency which does not eavesdrop on the content of calls but which uses the connection information to determine what phones known to be used by terrorists are calling what phone numbers in the United States is a “warrantless wiretap”.

The doctor seems to care what others in the world think of the United States. Frankly, I don’t care what the French or Germans think as long as they stand aside while we remove evil men like Saddam Hussein with whom many of the leaders of those countries and many “appointees” at the United Nations were taking kickbacks from the “Oil for Food Program” to look the other way while Saddam Hussein spent billions of dollars on himself while starving the children of his enemies. I also do not care what the Islamofascists think of the United States as long as they fear our military and understand that anyone who attacks this country or supports those who do will suffer the fate of al-Zarqawi.

I hope for the sake of her patients that the good doctor has a better grasp of medical knowledge and the ability to apply that knowledge in a more rational manner than she displayed in her recent letter to The Sun.

Thank you.

Sorry about the formatting problem in the first posting.

Apparently the good doctor teaches Psychology at Bentley University in the Department of Psychology and Political Science. (What the heck kind of a marriage is that? Oh, yeah, this is Massghanistan.)

I pitty the parents who are paying $35,000 a year to send their kids to Bentley if this woman is typical of the quality of the reasoning of members of the Bentley faculty.

This lady sounds like a typical lib lightweight who gets the "tip of the iceberg" from CNN/MSNBC/ABC/CBS/NBC/NYT/AIRHEADAMERCIA, etc. She's got the talking points down pat. But has nothing to back them up.

She's the kind I love to debate, as Rush says, with one hand tied behind my back. LOL!
