Surely a writer of your experience realizes that it is not the President who is largely responsible for most of the problems this nation faces. The financial crisis rests at the feet of Democratic senators Dodd, Frank and Pelosi who enacted regulation forcing banks to lend to people with no credit and then had the gall to blame it on Republican deregulation. The unpopular war has removed a cruel dictator from the world and has liberated a nation- who denies this is a benefit to mankind? It is Congress that has prevented the only proven, reliable green energy program- Nuclear energy- from being implemented. Was the largest entitlement in 40 years (the medicare RX benefit) a Bush mistake? How about the Education Bill Bush championed that was authored by Kennedy? Or the Hundred Billion dollars to fight AIDS in Africa? History will prove that Bush had the most difficult 2 terms of any recent president that saw the biggest act of terrorism and destruction on our shores in history, several natural disasters (of which FEMA was expected to do be first responder for the first time in hstory), and complete and utter contempt from the media and academia. An uncomplicated man, with a direct approach, he remains gracious- even to his greatest enemies.
If you really believe that a 2 year senator from one of the most politically corrupt cities in the US,who claims his summer vacations as foreign policy experience, who claims he didn’t know his pastor of 20 years was a racist, who bought a house with the help of a felon, who got started in politics with the help of a former terrorist, who authored not a single piece of meaningful legislation, who voted present 98 times, who lied about how he would receive campaign finances, who accepted money anonymously over the net, who refuses to release his actual birth certificate or college thesis, or how he paid for college, who has already broken nearly all of his campaign promises.....You need your head examined.
Very well written response to their insanity - unfortunately, they will not objectively consider your many valid points.
