The Party Has No Clothes
The criticism is directed squarely at President Bush, who is far from the conservative the left imagines, and the right desires. The question, though, is, “Why is there so much anger toward Bush?” If anything, should this not make Americans look at the (D)emocratic party with mounting of anger.
In the last two presidential elections, the big (D)s have given us Al Gore and John Kerry. Gore and Kerry as leaders of the free world? When you look at these two, the anger should be directed not at Bush but at the (D)emocrats for offering so little alternative. (And if it were not for Perot, we would probably not have had Clinton.)
In the next presidential election, when a (R)epublican wins again — especially a limp policied (R)epublican — perhaps America can start to focus on the real culprit: the pathetic (D)emocrats who offer so little. Face it, if America is unhappy with Bush, imagine how miserable things would be with Gore or Kerry.
Step up, (D)ems, and run a candidate that has a brain, can lead and is not an elitist closet socialist, then perhaps the (R)epublicans will run a candidate who is a true conservative. Until then, don’t be angry at Bush, as there was no viable alternative.
Gore and Kerry? Bush would be president again tomorrow, given the alternatives.
