I can't believe what I'm hearing here. This is why our society is the way it is today. Maybe it's a good thing all you people do is "talk" about
lynching and violent revolution via internet forums. Who knows what damage you could do actually unified.
No, Bush was not a good man his term in office. I'm not excusing his various crimes and such, nor his cohort Cheney, who in my opinion, is far far
worse. Don't even go there. Nor do I think he should be put on a pedestal or in a glass cage and sheltered from the people whose lives have been
destroyed through his actions/inactions.
But honestly, are we so savage that we can't refrain from any condescending behavior on what is supposed to be a celebratory day? Americans love
their parties. Everyone knows that. Hell, 3rd longest inaugural parade on record has got to tell you something right there. But which is it going to
be? Are you going to embrace the future or mar it so early with scars of the past?
There will be time for that later. Don't hang your vigilance on the rack, but don't be so crude either.
Oh and BTW: This is something even Obama understands. While his speech was laced with statist idealism and collective pragmatism, I wish him the best,
even if he does turn out to be a corporate tool in the future. After all, it seems many of you have lost sight of the ball: Bush was the fall guy to
get many things in place for Obama in the first place...
and let's get one thing clear: he is no JFK.
