Michael Moore has written a piece that breaks things down to three easy to digest vignettes which speak to why so many of us think Bush should leave office as quickly as we can find a replacement. He says we should share this piece with the decent folks we know who support Bush, or are on the fence.
Well, I don't know too many of those people who aren't so dug in that they are immovable. But I'll blog it anyway just in case.
The first vignette deals with the way Bush sees 9/11. My personal feeling is that he sees it as an opportunity to be exploited. That's his connection to the tragedy. He's separated from it, for the most part. There was a brief worrisome and inconvenient time when they thought he might be a target. Other than that, my perception is that he's pretty cynical about it.
The second and third vignettes are about the looking Bush legacy of debt our children and their children will be saddled with. And what 85 billion dollars can buy you.
It's up to you to decide what you think of this man and how he has led the country. There is a lot of partisan bickering. But behind the politics itself is Bush, the man who I feel has cynically used us, and both our monetary and patriotic capital. [Link]
