Letter to the Editor
It’s interesting that the Republican convention is a celebration of all the failures of the Bush administration. Starting with 9-11 a tragedy that happen because Bush was on vacation and ignored all the warnings of the impending attacks.
They praise Bush’s response to 9-11 when his response was to sit there and read a story about a goat to school children rather than scramble fighter jets to take out the terrorists.
Then they celebrate the war in Afghanistan which failed to capture Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden is still free – and we are no longer seriously pursuing him.
They call the surrender of our freedom and liberty the “Patriot Act”.
Then they celebrate that war in Iraq which had nothing to do with 9-11 and they found no weapons of mass destruction and he is now stuck there clueless as to what to do. They overthrew a dictator who was torturing and raping the people and replaced them with Americans to torture and rape the people.
They will go on to celebrate the Bush economy which went from the biggest surplus in the history of the world to the biggest deficit in the history of the world.
The problem with the Republicans is – they think failure is success and that success is failure. They think that ignorance and failure is a virtue.
