I was watching CNN’S “Situation Room” yesterday and I realized exactly how idiotic certain people are. There’s been a lot of discussion over the attorney firings, especially since Bush “cited executive privilege” to keep Harriet Miers and Karl Rove from testifying under oath, and “Situation Room” was reading letters from people on Congress vs. Bush. Thousands of pro-Congress letters and a measly two or three pro-Bush. I thought one of the pro-Bush ones was particularly funny—“Of course what Bush says has to be right”, or something along those lines. I’m thinking Bush is in the war zone here, and he’s landed himself the question “If you guys did nothing wrong, why not testify?” He doesn’t have a good reason, and so the conclusion is they did do something wrong. I’m surprised Bush doesn’t just resign.
Some people feel sorry for unintelligent presidents like Mr. Bush, because every one of their infinite mistakes is caught by the media, and every rare “graceful” movement (“Bush handling a chainsaw”, according to CNN’s Jeanne Moos…eh, when is a chainsaw graceful?) is usually obscured by dumb moves. I’m thinking Bush should have studied the other presidents, should have known about the media’s influence, and—after all, he’d already had four years in the presidency before the elections!
In any case, that’s my opinion about Bush, and I hope, beloved readers, many of yours as well.

    Hi Adora,

    I agree that Bush should learn from his past mistakes involving the media. As much as I like to be a Bush "basher", I think that being a President is pretty tough. A President has to do many duties to keep our country in one piece. Given the war, the high gas prices, the economy, terrorists and "White House" politics, it is pretty tough for a President to not slip up in the "lime-light".
    Rather than critizing our President and his flaws, we should offer him some advice to do things better. Any suggestions?

    Adora,

    I guess you're never young enough to be sucked up into a liberal vacuum, and become a disrespectful Bush Basher. I'm sure you totally value the freedom to write whatever you want about our president, but the sad part is you don't realize the price of freedom.

  3. While I highly respect you from a literary standpoint, I must suggest that you look at some sources other than the mainstream media. Have you heard anything about Bill Clinton's firing of 93 U.S. attorneys during his presidency? Either you did, and you deliberately didn't mention it, or you've fallen into the black hole of liberal media bias, and you never even heard it mentioned.

    Furthermore, President Bush already explained that if he were to waste his time on the silly and ignorant demands of congress and the mainstream media, he would be creating a serious information issue within the White House. The president's advisors and subordinates would be uncomfortable giving their opinions in even the closed environment of D.C. when it would be a dangerous possibility that everything they said could be disclosed in some court the next day. Eventually, the president just has to ignore the propaganda-fueled accusations of the media.
