The Democrats’ personal hatred towards President Bush – in light of the objective successes of his presidency – make clear the sad fact that they would rather see America fail if that failure made the president look bad.
The most urgent question after 9/11 was when we’d be hit again, not if. In over six-and-a-half years, much to the president’s credit, we’ve been kept safe – as in zero attacks against our homeland. When Democrats try to tell us why we shouldn’t applaud this obvious, major success for the American people, they reveal that their seething anger trumps the happiness they should feel. Is there any doubt that if one person had died in a terror attack since 9/11, the Democrats would have mercilessly taken Mr. Bush to task?
While Bush fights for America to be safer, the Democrats fight Bush.
Throughout the vast majority of time President Bush has been in office, the stock market has climbed to never-before-seen heights, unemployment has remained historically low, as have inflation and interest rates. What president wouldn’t want those numbers? Yet, the New York Times didn’t write a front-page article last week when a government report told us that 166,000 new jobs had been created.
But, they did write five front-page stories on the five days the stock market took larger than 100-point tumbles. Which again makes obvious that Democrats revel more in bad news if it makes the president look bad than in the good news that their fellow citizens, across the board, are doing better economically.
While Bush fights for the economic health of our people, the Democrats fight Bush.
We’re in a difficult battle in Iraq. There is plenty of room for honest debate about the merits concerning the administrations actions post 9/11 in Iraq. But, when it’s abundantly clear that the president’s “surge” strategy has been stunningly effective – to the point of turning the war around in our favor – you would think the Democrats would hail that victory.
But, no! Because the “surge” could make the president look wise, and in Democrat circles, that’s the ultimate no-no.
While the president fights to beat al-Qaeda and the spread of Islamofascism in Iraq and Afghanistan, Democrats fight Bush.
I was a liberal for the first 41 years of my life, jettisoning the Democrat Party after I saw the visionless response to 9/11 by the left. The rooting against the president that is the Democrats’ de facto policy (just ask Dianne Feinstein and Joe Lieberman) in the face of the numerous victories he has given our country, makes me surer than ever that I made the right decision.
