Thread Name: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
Subject: RE: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
Well, Don, a lady I work with has a picture of GWB where most people keep family pictures. (And yes, she has a husband and several kids. No pictures of them.) She practically worships the guy. On the other hand, when pressed she doesn't much seem to agree with him on much of anything -- it's perplexing. But don't insult HER president! He's FLAWLESS!

Truth is, many people will worship almost anyone elevated to a leadership position regardless of merit or ability or what they actually do. And I'm not just talking about politics. (Many of the others will hate anyone elevated to a leadership position etc., etc. Any conversation about Bill Gates will troll up people who rapidly hate him, without having any good reasons why.) It's human mob mentality.
