Here is the truth regarding Bush hatred. The world has changed. Modern communications are bringing out into the light practices that are as old as sin and are normally called “Black OPs.”
Also the world today is more of a village, people meet and know people from other countries and find many of them to be nice people.
Just because something was acceptable behavior in the past doesn’t mean it remains acceptable practice today.p>After all it used to be illegal under church law to practice usury. br> — Kevin Walsh br> Greater Dandenong br> Australia /p>
This is an excellent article. One of the things I truly enjoyed about it was the clear recitation of several points I have made in personal discussions of this administration. It should be no secret that though I have my own problems with the Bush administration, though I very rarely blame Bush or his administration for them being there. Bush holds the distinction of having been the only president to ever have his administration questioned and called illegitimate from his first day in office. With 9/11 and Iraq, we often forget all about the difficulties of the 2000 election, and Al Gore’s simple refusal to admit his defeat in the electoral college. Combined with his attempts to bring more ideological balance to a highly liberal professional bureaucracy (honest or not) and we see an administration with a lot of problems. Bush’s apparent poor public speaking skills haven’t helped much either. I also think that while he’s remained mostly consistent from an ideological perspective, he’s also had a few too many politicking moments that have caused problems.p>In short, Bush is far from a perfect or Great president, but he’s been a good one. And we need to try and remember that and remind others of that as much as possible. And as for the squelching of American rights… can anyone give me an example? Other than the general surveillance, that is. I want something specific. Name a name, give me a person who had their rights violated by any action of the Bush administration. Really, ‘cause I can name three big actions taken directly by the Clinton Justice department without even thinking hard that ran rough over the American Constitution, policy, values, and law. br> — Charles Campbell br> Austin, Texas

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
