Why hate bush?

It seems that many who support John Kerry for president don’t like him as much as they say they “hate (detest) George Bush.” Hate is a terrible emotion, the kind that inspires extremists to kill their enemy for no rational reason.

Why do many Americans “hate” Bush? Many are non-thinkers who have been told non-stop that they should hate him. That is called insipid stupidity.

Some hate him because he is unabashedly Christian, living a Christian life. Oh, my! Others, because he led us into what has become an unpopular war. So was Vietnam, led by JFK and LBJ, and totally squandered by Defense Secretary Robert “the brain McNamara, who lost us thousands of men, accomplishing nothing!

President Bush has liberated two countries and captured this century’s most notorious murderer, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Quaida, and crippled the nuclear expansion of Libya, Iran and North Korea.

He is for stopping the slaughter of thousands of pre-born infants each year, protecting the sanctity of true marriage, and for appointing true constitutionalists to our federal courts.

Yes, George Bush is surely a hateful person. He has my vote.
