Editor’s Note: Regarding Republicans for Clinton?, perhaps Mr. Scouler should reread the headline — and read the piece.p> THE CRACK-UP CONTINUES br> Re: Jay D. Homnick’s The Bushed Presidency : /p>
Mr. Homnick’s “The Bushed Presidency” chastises disaffected conservatives like myself for throwing in the towel on George Bush. Well, I proudly plead guilty as charged. But, in mitigation, all should be honest about why the President sees so many conservatives running away from him. He shunned them.
Where to start? Maybe “comprehensive immigration reform.” While all informed voters knew this was the President’s position prior to the 2000 election, things changed a wee bit on 9/11. Since that attack the President has knowingly presided over a regime of sham immigration “enforcement” thus endangering the citizens of this country, and insulted good Americans who object to unfettered alien entry by smearing them as vigilantes. He thus is failing one of his principal duties—the protection of the American people.
The Middle East. Seems as if every other week the President is sending Secretary Rice to talk and pose for photos with some terrorist-enabling kleptocrat in that region of the world while trying to find a way to funnel our money directly to the Palestinian people, the same people who voted for Hamas, a ruthless terrorist bunch so designated by the President. Let them pound sand while they reconsider their future electoral choices.
Iran. Is not Britain our loyal ally in Iraq? Were not her sailors and marines recently captured in Iraqi waters and held by the terrorist, nuclear bomb-developing Iran for full propaganda exploitation? I understand Britain soiled her undergarments demonstrating fully her cowardice, but does not America come to the defense of our allies any longer? Why are significant portions of Iran not smoldering ruins at present? Why, instead, did the President authorize the release of Iranian “diplomats” captured in Iraq?
Kofi Annan. Our President recently toasted the corrupt SOB as a “great” man.
AG Gonzales. While I despise the Democrat witch-hunt, Gonzales has recently revealed himself as the most inept leader in the Bush administration. With the exception of Janet “Burn Innocent Americans” Reno, our current AG is one of the most embarrassing in living memory and no conservative should ever feel compelled to defend a Republican president who, out of misplaced loyalty, will not clean house and insist on competency.
