Heartfelt Gratitude


Throughout all the hoopla over the campaigns, Election Day, vote-counting, and the coronation of President-Elect Obama, there’s one person who has gone largely unnoticed. The man who will be handing over the reins to Obama come January. The one who has kept this country free of attacks since September 11, 2001. The man who has endured more scurillous character attacks, more scorn, more hatred, more outpourings of rage than I suspect any other president has ever had to endure before. I refer, of course, to Dick Cheney.

Heh, heh. Of course I’m kidding. I’m referring to our ever-gracious current president, George W. Bush. Here is a man who is regularly compared to Hitler in casual conversation in Leftist circles high and low. His honor has been regularly impugned, his intelligence (or, as the press loves to put it, his “intellectual curiosity”) constantly demeaned, his verbal stumblings consistently mocked, and his accomplishments in office discounted or ignored. He is a man who kept his head down and did his job, despite the slings and arrows hurled at him by fortune made all the more outrageous by nearly the entire Democratic party.

I for one, would like to say thank you to Pres. Bush. For keeping us safe. For watching out for us. For persevering in spite of all the spite. I believe history will ultimately judge you as one of America’s best presidents, and I believe you deserve that judgement.

As a grateful American citizen, and with the utmost humility, I say to you, “Thank you, President Bush, for all your labors on behalf of this great country. May God bless you and your family as you take the next steps on your journey. Thank you.”

    I agree with you. Only I think things are much worse.

    The treatment of Bush – lately – by even his so-called friends and fellow party members shows you what cowards and small people look like. But a person who can’t bring themselves to stand by a decent man is a known kind of low-life person. They are always with us.

    But the treatment of Bush by his “enemies” has been the truly unique and dispiriting thing in American history. It leads me to think that “America” is probably “over; done; finished; kaput”.

    First, why does a President have “enemies”? We aren’t talking political foes here. He was attacked by real “enemies”. He was called things no President was ever called. He was attacked on the mere principle of “attack”. It was more the office than the man; but it was the man and the office.

    He was Hindenburg, and the attackers were National Socialists.

    Second, the attack was unrelenting, widespread, and coordinated. They all said the same thing. And they said it every day; all day; every week; every month; every year; over and over; in every forum – print, internet, TV, radio, rally, march, etc., etc – and for 8 straight years.

    That is 2900+ days. Constant. Coordinated. Comprehensive.

    And they won.

    America is over. If we want it back, it will take a real fight.

    This election has given me sleepless nights and I can’t help wondering how long it took for the whole Obama thing to be orchestrated – with all the methods of hiding what needed to be hidden, raising funds in ways that are untraceable, set up the atmosphere of hatred against Bush and republicans, Organizing massive voter registration machineries, luring the college students who has been mould for years to think left and to disregard the noble history.

    Growing up with muslims (moderate ones and fanatical ones) I do know that all of them are very aware that as a religion, they have but one goal that they must be ready to fight for at the risk of their lives when the time comes and they are called. Unfortunately, many in the west today have lost their vision and it looks like other then their materialistic well being, there is nothing they are willing to risk their lives for – not even for their future generations. this is sad because Without vision people become weak.
