Dear Mr. Bush,
I’m not going to mince words. I don’t like you, I don’t respect you, and I think you’re a stone coward.
I’ve been in my share of fights and my share of tough business negotiations. I always knew when I’d won when I saw a certain look of fear in my opponent’s eyes, the same look you had when you got news of the terrorists attacking American in September of 2001.
Your defenders say that sitting there was the right thing to do, as to “not alarm the children,” but you and I both know the truth, don’t we?
I think you’re an intellectual lightweight. You don’t accept empirical evidence and you don’t admit error. Even your staff members label you as the least intellectually curious President in history.
When you ran for President the first time, you claimed that you’d unite the country. That would laughable if it weren’t so damn sad. I blame you for the enormous ideological rift that exists today among America’s people.
You claim your opponent’s a “flip flopper,” but you sir, are the champ.
Do you remember saying any of the following lines?
“If we’re an arrogant nation, [foreigners] will resent us. If we’re a humble nation but strong, they’ll welcome us…we’ve got to be humble.” October, 11, 2000
“Effective reform requires accountability…it is a sad story. High hopes, low achievement. Grand plans, unmet goals. My administration will do things differently.” Sept. 2, 1999
“I hope you will join me to pay down more than $2 trillion in debt during the next ten years… We should approach our nation’s budget as any prudent family would.” Feb. 27th, 2001.
We all know that you didn’t follow or achieve any of that. Of course, those aren?t really flip-flops, are they? No, I think it would be more accurate to call them lies.
It’s offensive to me that you claim to have God’s ear. Sir, if there’s a God and he’s talking to anyone, it sure as hell ain’t you. You claim to represent the Religious right, but you don’t even belong to a church! God may forgive for pulling that bit of chicanery, but I won’t.
You call yourself the education President, but that in itself is laughable because you, sir, are the product of a failed educational system. You promised to leave no child behind, but then you yanked funding. Now drop out rates are higher than ever and the disparity between the best schools and the worst schools is at an all-time high.
You claim to be the candidate of hunters and fisherman, but Mr. President, they need clean air and clean water to pursue their passion. You, however, have rolled back more environmental regulations than is conscionable.
I believe in science, Mr. President, but you surely don’t. This is the age of science, sir, and science will ultimately conquer disease, pollution, and fuel shortages. Scores of Nobel Prize winning scientists have banded against you for your naive opinions about science and I feel their pain.
While you inherited an enormous budget surplus, you’ve squandered it. I understand that the war effort ate up a significant portion of that surplus, but the rest of your spending borders on the obscene. You have all the budgetary restraint of a crack addict in drug alley.
You claim to have Republican ideals, but you and your administration are to Republicans what the Taliban is to Islam.
The rest of your shortcomings and crimes are too many to cite. History for sure will condemn for these, along with the ones I’ve mentioned, and I sincerely hope you?re relegated to history’s judgment come this Tuesday.
