Hi Laura et alia,
Your Saturday Evening Post description of W is touching. One could only wonder what kind of scene Norman Rockwell would have painted.
Permit me to ask you some questions. When did Bush kill or capture bin Ladin? Please review for us the evidence for going to war in Iraq. Please tell us how many of those evil WMDs we found when we invaded Iraq. Please tell us who finally got us out of Iraq. Who was Valerie Plame, and what happened to her? Ever hear of a guy named Scooter Libby? Is "Scooter" a Christian name? Who was he, and what happened to him? How many soldiers were killed in Iraq? Afghanistan? How many contractors were killed? Please review for us the accounting of the Katrina disaster. Is lying about WMDs as an excuse to go to war a veniel sin? A mortal one? How was the accounting of these wars handled? I mean, were they put on the books, or kept off the ledger sheets, since a certain Veep said that a 1980s US Prexy "proved" that "deficits don't matter". Do they matter now? If so, why? How much did the Iraq and Afghanistan wars cost us, so far? (you may round your answer to the nearest trillion dollars). Since you don't consider Bush a total screw-up (your words), do you consider him a partial screw-up? Too bad W didn't keep this nation safe on 9.11, right? You write, "My life was stable and safe under President Bush and it has been hell under Obama. " Whose fault is that, and why? (please give details). Did your life become hell on January 20th, 2009, when Obama took office? Or before? Or after? In fact, I do remember correctly, and the Congress was not completely behind W in his Iraq war plans. In fact, my congresswoman was not. Yes, I can imagine what would have happened if Obama was President on 9.11. Benghazi? I'm not sure how Obama should have handled Benghazi. The four Americans killed there is indeed tragic, and yes, security should have been stronger. But considering all the other screw-ups we've had since 2000, this is pretty small stuff. I can understand why you and perhaps others here might want to make it a federal case, however. Who is Scott Brown? What happened to Scott Brown? Who is Elizabeth Warren? Ever hear of the Consumer Protection Financial Bureau? What happened when Warren was nominated to that post? Why?
Really, what did Bush stand for?
James eagerly and respectfully looks forward to your detailed answers.
Same ol' James. I agree with Edward. Not much can be said to someone with their head buried so deep in the sand Aren't you the guy that gets his info from Bill Maher...how could I possibly top that? I could match you tit for tat but to what end? I've talked with my pastor, I know where my loyalty lies America is going to learn the hard way, so hang on.
My my. Such hostility. There's a lot of that going around, it seems. Oh well. No, I don't get my information from Bill Maher. Maher's show is entertaining, but this hardly means that I agree with all of his editorial statements. I don't agree with all the editorial statements of MSNBC, or FOX News, either. Yes, perhaps you could match me tit-for-tat, but you haven't.
Presumably you talk to your pastor for advice. There's nothing wrong with this, in and of itself, but here's a little free advice from me. Black and white thinking is a sign you're not getting good advice.
I think I'll leave you with that.
