Letter to the Editor
The press has been saying that Democrats hate Bush – but I don’t think that’s true. I think it’s more accurate to say that a lot of people are ANGRY with Bush, but they don’t hate him. I’m sure that are some people who hate Bush – like if you lost a child in Iraq who died because Bush lied – then you might hate Bush. Or – if your retirement got wiped out because it was all in Enron stock – you might hate Bush,
But for things like taking away civil liberties with the Patriot Act, people losing their jobs, turning the biggest surplus in the history of the world into the biggest deficit in the history of the world, or the rape, torture, and killings at Abu Ghraib prison – I think people are just angry with Bush about that.
So I don’t think it’s accurate to portray Democrats as people who hate. You have to take into account issues and real reason people might be angry about personal losses and the direction America is heading. I think the media should look closer to see if people really do hate Bush – or if they are just angry with him.
