Bless her heart . . .

Nancy Pelosi has called George W. Bush a total failure- in every regard. 'Bless his heart,' she said.

Well, bless her heart. She's forgetting something.

Yes, I'm embarrassed for Bush in many regards. He has lost lots of respect - if he had any - by so many people including yours truly (frankly).
BUT - I think we need to remember that UNDER HIS WATCH we have NOT had another 9/11 attack. . . and on 9/12/01 everyone in these United States was wondering what else is going to happen and when. And it hasn't. It didn't.
I don't know why that is.
But I do think we need to REMEMBER that no major terrorist attack has happened on that 'failure's' watch.

I just wanted to say that.

That's very true. Personally, I'm not the biggest fan of everything that President Bush has done, but you cannot deny that he has been successful in terms of Homeland Security. To call him a total failure in every regard is an irresponsible overstatement.

However, I curse him every time I pump gas into my car.

Well said, Nancy, and I agree with you and Rob on the irresponsibility of the disparaging blanket statement about our President. It shows almost total disrespect for both the man AND the office. In my view, President Bush, regardless of how we feel about his leadership of our country, should be given dignity, value, and respect because first of all he is a human being, second because he is our president, and beside that, he has not led our nation in a vacuum -- we have congress, plenty of special interest groups and lobbyists, advisors, et al to thank for where we are today. I think it is unfair to lay all the blame and angst upon one man's shoulders.

As a matter of fact, we can also thank some pretty lousy leadership in the 1960's for a lot of what's happening today not only in foreign policy, but also in matters of social justice. I think it's going to be just as slow a climb out of the mess as it was getting into it.

I'm glad you "just wanted to say that." Made me think.
