Rizla, and others.
In several posts you've asked if those of us who support Mr. Bush (me
) would also support Adolph Hitler if he were our President. While I don't
feel the question is valid, I pondered it for a few moments, and it suddenly dawned on me that you are operating under the notion that my suport for
Mr. Bush is unconditional, and I seem to have inadvertantly fueled that notion. Ooops!
Trust me when I say my support for any politician is Very conditional. I don't trust any politician any more than you do. I do hope this clears
that particular issue up.
I thought I might attempt, again, to explain why, regardless of ones opinion of a sitting President (Bush, Clinton, other...) one should support him.
The President is our freely elected leader. In good times or bad, it behooves (love that word) us to support him in his efforts. If we disagree
with him, on whatever issue, or issues; fine, it is after all a free country...but save the protests for the ballot box, or, at least, practise some
decorum and civility in the arena of public opinion. Personally, I don't think that is too much to ask. They used to call it the loyal opposition.
Yell and scream all you want, but at the end of the day, the President is our leader and needs our support, if only too confuse our enemies.
Of course, if illegalities are proven, all bets are off.
I hope this did a better job of explaining my views than my previous posts.
Just in an aside, if you are going to compare Mr. Bush to previous leaders, may I suggest someone a trifle more recent, and from the same country?
Such as Mr. Nixon, or any American leader? Just a friendly suggestion.
