Anyone who follows politics in our country knows there is a minority on the far Left whose entire political viewpoint is defined by their hatred of President Bush. Political argument, policy differences, and rational discussion are all trumped by hatred of Bush. A classic example of this was sent to me today by a friend. E.L. Doctorow wrote a piece for the East Hampton Star (East Hampton, NY where millionaires are considered "poor") titled "The Unfeeling President".
Doctorow accuses President Bush without presenting any evidence of "not knowing what death is ... He hasn't the mind for it." Yet is is clear that Doctorow like many morally sick folk in our country does understand what hate is.
He is good at mocking "peering under the table for the WMDs he can't seem to find" about things he evidently knows nothing about. The radical Left in our country does not seem to care if they have facts on their side.
He likes to hurl accusations that are obviously and demonstrably false "He does not mourn. He doesn't understand why he should mourn."
He plays God and knows what is in the heart "he dissembles an emotion which he does not feel in the depths of his being because he has no capacity for it. He does not feel a personal responsibility for the thousand dead
young men and women who wanted to be what they could be."
He glibly lies about things anyone who will take a minor amount of time to study would know is false "his reason for going to war was, as he knew, unsubstantiated by the facts" What is truth next to the ability to beautifully phrase an attack on President Bush?
Doctorow claims "He does not regret that his bungled plan for the war's aftermath has made of his mission-accomplished a disaster." It is such a disaster that free elections were held in Afghanistan and Iraq, Libya gave up their WMD, and Syria pulled out of Lebanon.
He claims "He does not regret that rather than controlling terrorism his war in Iraq has licensed it." when thousands of terrorists are now dead, worshipers in Kuwait mosques are shouting down anti-American preachers, and the USA is now held in as much as 80% positive light in many Islamic countries.
He claims "He had not the mind to perceive" when President Bush had a higher GPA than Senator Kerry.
He obviously feels he is more knowledgeable than the bipartisan majority who voted to authorize the war, and better informed than our President who made the difficult decision after all other possibilities had been exhausted "He did not understand that you do not go to war when it is one of the options, but when it is the only option; you go not because you want to but because you have to."
Doctorow claims "he does not drop to his knees, he is not contrite". I suppose he thinks the President should bow down and worship the almighty Doctorow and beg forgiveness for doing what is right and keeping our country safe.
Hate comes so easy to Doctorow "he does not sit in the church with the grieving parents and wives and children" that all the photos and other evidence to the contrary just does not matter.
Doctorow so loves to hate President Bush "He is the President who does not feel. ... But he will dissemble feeling. ... this litany of lies ... terribly sad ... cry of protest" that his intense hatred blinds him. Fortunately for our country the majority does not agree with Doctorow's opinions. He claims "The president we get is the country we get." to try to twist the fact that the citizens of our country select the President and our other leaders not the other way around. How frustrating it must be for Doctorow when only a minority in our country see how brilliant and right he is, and the majority elect someone like our great President :>)
Doctorow does turn a great phrase "a figure of such moral vacancy" which of course applies best to himself.
Doctorow is to be pitied.
