My Facebook Thoughts

P.S.


I'm not sure if people reading my blog ever go back to read comments from older posts. Those who do are familiar with my Bush-loving Anonymous.

I've stated, as have many, that Bush is probably the worst President we have ever had at the worst time in our country's history. If Bush were President in 1941 we'd all be eating sourkraut for breakfast. Well, maybe not, but the world would be much different.

Anyway.

My friend Anonymous had this to say recently;

I find it funny that if America is hated so much why do so many people want to move here (both legally and illegally).

The United States has done more good for the rest of the world than any other nation. This despite the many ingrates that live here and in other countries.

President Bush understands that Islamic terrorists only understand force. They have been under the impression that America is a paper tiger. In that part of the world people will always favor a strong horse.

I know I am wasting my time discussing this with you. I just wonder who you will blame if a Democrat wins the White House for any of your problems.

Well, if things were this bad with a Democratic president I would blame them as well. The President has the ultimate responsibility to make things work. When I say make things work, I mean for everybody here first and then the rest of the world.

Bush's actions and inactions have made his friends very rich. Halliburton and all the oil companies just to name a few.

I also understand the use of force in dealing with radical Islam. But, has it ever been asked why the radicals hate us so much that they would devote their lives to try to destroy us? It should, at least, be asked. I don't suggest we huddle around a campfire and sing John Denver songs, but there should be a dialog.

To answer your question,

"if America is hated so much why do so many people want to move here (both legally and illegally). "

Despite our many flaws we are still free. Free to be rich, free to be poor. Free to argue in public whether or not our President is a boob.

I agree that you have the right to feel about Bush the way that you want. However, comparing him to a monkey is sort of juvenille don't you think?

I agree.

Scott Ploch said...

Comparing him to a jackass is much better.

The reason people feel so strongly about Bush is because they love America. Anonymous' argument seems to confuse the two somewhat.

Scott - I wish I had thought of that one.

Bill - You're right. But people who think like Anonymous do so blindly. They vote one way and they feel there is no other option. I have to believe the Republicans know this, but they refuse to admit it.
That is why Bush supporters seldom answer the question, What good to the USA has Bush done?
