I'm in Full Agreement

The Treatment of Bush Has Been a Disgrace (h/t: On the Other Foot)
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.
(I am much more satisfied with what Bush has done than disappointed. The man has proved himself time & again, against the grain)
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. 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.
(Mmmmm Hmmmmmm)
The treatment President Bush has received from this country is nothing less than a disgrace. The attacks launched against him have been cruel and slanderous, proving to the world what little character and resolve we have. The president is not to blame for all these problems. He never lost faith in America or her people, and has tried his hardest to continue leading our nation during a very difficult time. (coming to mind most? Blaming Bush for Hurricane Katrina. Smooth one, people)

Our failure to stand by the one person who continued to stand by us has not gone unnoticed by our enemies. It has shown to the world how disloyal we can be when our president needed loyalty -- a shameful display of arrogance and weakness that will haunt this nation long after Mr. Bush has left the White House.

Read it again: Our failure to stand by the one person who continued to stand by us. He has continued to stand by us. He has continued to work his hardest and do what he thought was right. The same thing he defined as right is frowned upon by many Democrats, yet if those same democrats had the idea first, it'd become a smart choice. How crooked is that?

It's been a rough 8 years, but not because Bush made it that way. He came in at a time when someone had to clean up Clinton's mess, then dealing with a horrible tragedy bestowed upon country. I am proud of Bush. I have no regret in voting for him twice, and I hope he knows that there are, at least, some supporters to his name.

Nancy and I were just talking tonight about poor president Bush...I am glad for his sake that he's been released from his duties--That man looks so old and worn out--He's a human being, for Pete's sake--and he has the weight of the world on his shoulders!!! I hope he gets to go home to Texas and just RELAX for about ten years--Can you just imagine carrying the weight of the world like that?

Obama is stepping into a huge mess as president and everyone is looking to him to fix it--which, more than likely, he will not be able to do...What will people say about him with so much expected of him, especially since it's been proven you can't please everyone.

*sigh*

I couldn't agree with you more. I've never been a Bush basher. And the press never reports on the good things that have happened while he has been in office. That can really affect how people see someone if they never know the good. I think he seems like a true, genuine man and probably someone that is a good friend. Plus I just love Laura!
