Recently, during a press conference, President Bush came out swinging, accusing those Democrats that think for them selves and have not fallen under his spell as un-American and aiding the enemies of U.S.
I object to that characterization in the most extreme manner. It seems to me, that having an open mind and not falling into the quagmire that the War in Iraq has become, is totally American and Patriotic. Having an objective point of view and not accepting the corporate line, without question is the very definition of a good leader, and our elected officials, whether Democrat or Republican should reflect that, and our President should most of all.
President Bush, in my opinion, should be more concern with the many deaths of Americans occurring daily in foreign lands, than his current focus of showing the Democrat party and the rest of America that he still matters. His attitude of, it is my ball and we will play what I want or nothing at all, is merely digging us deeper and deeper into a hole that may eventually end in a world war, pitting Muslims against Christians, with the U.S. at that forefront.
I personally do not see the reasoning behind, President Bush’s current rhetoric that is creating a bigger rift between the Democratic and Republican parties. This is not a time for bickering over political ideology, but a time for bringing the country together as whole, then and only then can we truly defeat the evil that is currently threatening us all.
