President Bush Can Take Pride in Scorn

Bush Can Take Pride in Scorn
By Mark Davis


There has been no shortage of ridiculous articles this year evaluating how America's image will need serious refurbishing after the "damage" exacted by the Bush years.

One would presume that the most "damaging" element of the Bush legacy has been the seven years of the war on terror. Oh, how he - and we - are despised from the cafés of Paris to the sidewalks of Berlin, from the coffee shops of Cairo to the market squares of Caracas, all because we have spent the years since 9/11 trying to reform the part of the world that wishes we were all dead.

It is equal parts sad and scary that an entire political party and millions of its adherents in America believe that we should guide foreign policy by how much of the world likes us.
This is as fundamentally stupid as trying to raise a child by being a buddy instead of a parent. That is a sure recipe for a rotten, indulged, unappreciative kid.


If you think it an insulting condescension to analogize America and the world to a parent's lessons for a spoiled child, you are completely correct, and that is my precise intent. Much of the world deserves such derisive regard, and worse.

Europe doesn't know what an enemy is any more. The Middle East is so filled with murderous lunatics that rational voices are drowned out. And from Latin America to Asia to Africa, there is so much tyranny, terror and corruption that no single U.S. president could possibly make a sizeable dent.

But this one has tried, and for that he is despised by America's enemies around the world and political enemies at home.

He should wear their scorn like a badge of honor. I would love to see a day when America is admired consistently from continent to continent. But let the world admire us because we have done the right things, even when unpopular, not because we changed our definition of what is right to appease evil leaders and misguided masses around the globe.

They always say if the opposition minds that much, he must be doing something right! LOL!

Watch your mouth, Lessy--one wrong comment and all your posts will come off this blog and I'll ask my regulars to ignore you.

President Bush has been an extraordinarily brave man to govern in the face of you enemies at home that wish to bring America down ever as much as the muslims want to. Having to fight 2 fronts at once has been a challenge--one he has met handsomely. I won't allow you to disparage him.

That is the funniest article. The rationalizations of the right are just so cute sometimes. I want to give you all a big hug and tell you it will be okay soon. Help really is on the way.

Even the military knows this, that is why the rank and file are donating to Obama by a large majority.

Your pal,
