Subject: RE: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration

Thanks for explaining at length where you're coming from. While I appreciate the effort I can't say it really seems to explain much.

My "grudge" is against political acts, no matter by whom, that undermine the well-being of the country and its citizens, and above all it's legacy as a great human experiment in individual freedom.

If I seem to focus on Bush, it is for the same reason people at the circus once focused on Emmett Kelley, on of Bush's possible mentors. He was in the center ring, with the floodlights and the spotlights on him, and he was the centerpiece of the show. This is the position Georgie wanted for himself, and he has it, but he is not anywhere as competent at carrying it off as he said he would be, or as Kelley was in his day working for Barnum and Bailey.

You have decided this is all hate and grudge; I suggest it is a serious effort to keep in view those steps we are being lead to take down a slippery slope toward fascism.

I think the difference is all-important; to you, apparently, it is "whatever".
