Thread Name: BS: Whats worse than Bush in 2004
Subject: RE: BS: Whats worse than Bush in 2004
It strikes me as the height of hypocrisy when those of the right wing persuasion accuse people who are critical of George W. Bush and his policies of some kind of spontaneous, irrational hatred when a few years back they set up a vicious campaign of character assassination against the Clintons even before they set foot in Washington, D. C. (years before Bill had the bad judgment to leave his fly unzipped). This is a prime example of spontaneous and irrational loathing groping around to find a rationale for its existence. And even though Clinton is out now, it still goes on (could it be because even though Bill is politically dead, Hilary is still very much alive?). It makes a very convenient diversion to be able to point to Clinton and try to move the argument over there when faced with criticism of Bush, his string of lies, his gutting of the economy for the benefit of his friends, and his initiating a war that is illegal, ill-advised, and (as is beginning to become evident), in the long run, unwinnable.

It is possible to intensely dislike and disagree with someone's policies and behavior without hating, or even disliking, him personally. I understand the Bush is really quite an affable fellow. He was a real party animal at Yale and he's supposed to be lots of fun at a barbeque. I am very much in favor of sending him back to Crawford, Texas, tying an apron on him, handing him a spatula, and putting him in charge of the steaks. Right after he steps down in January of 2005.

What could be worse than a second Bush term? Maybe another dinosaur-killer asteroid.
