Honestly, for all the money in the universe I could not pen something this ridiculous.
The Treatment of Bush Has Been a DisgraceBy JEFFREY SCOTT SHAPIRO
Earlier this year, 12,000 people in San Francisco signed a petition in support of a proposition on a local ballot to rename an Oceanside sewage plant after George W. Bush. The proposition is only one example of the classless disrespect many Americans have shown the president.
Does anybody know how that turned out? I haven’t heard yet. Last I read it had some pretty good support behind it.
And while we’re talking about classless disrespect, does wiping one’s ass with the constitution of the nation he was mandated to lead count?
According to recent Gallup polls, the president’s average approval rating is below 30% — down from his 90% approval in the wake of 9/11. Mr. Bush has endured relentless attacks from the left while facing abandonment from the right.
This is the price Mr. Bush is paying for trying to work with both Democrats and Republicans.
Or perhaps it’s the price Mr. Bush is paying for being shitty at his job. Consider how big the American national debt is these days and where most of that money went. How much of the cash that your family doesn’t have has gone towards blowing up other people’s countries and now to throwing lifelines to rich people who failed business class? I’d like to think that if I were that bad at everything I tried that everyone would abandon me too.
During his 2004 victory speech, the president reached out to voters who supported his opponent, John Kerry, and said, “Today, I want to speak to every person who voted for my opponent. To make this nation stronger and better, I will need your support, and I will work to earn it. I will do all I can do to deserve your trust.”
Guess it’s pretty safe to say he’s not capable of doing much then?
Those bipartisan efforts have been met with crushing resistance from both political parties.
Wait, it gets better.
It seems that no matter what Mr. Bush does, he is blamed for everything. He remains despised by the left while continuously disappointing the right.
Yet it should seem obvious that many of our country’s current problems either existed long before Mr. Bush ever came to office, or are beyond his control.
That’s still no excuse for spending 8 years making them worse, my friend.
Perhaps if Americans stopped being so divisive, and congressional leaders came together to work with the president on some of these problems, he would actually have had a fighting chance of solving them.
Pardon me a moment whilst I retrieve my jaw from the floor.
Divisive? Really? This guy can’t possibly be serious…can he? Am I crazy, or is the man he’s defending here not the head of the administration that has done more to foster the you’re either with us or against us attitude than anybody else in recent memory?
I don’t know where Mr. Shapiro has been living for the last 8 years, but the least he could have done is tried to catch some decent news coverage before he went ahead and bashed out this tripe.
