Sorry for the title of this post, but you nee3d to read Krauthammer in Time:
Bill Moyers may have his politics, but his deferential demeanor and almost avuncular television style made him the Mr. Rogers of American politics. So when he leaves his neighborhood to go to a “Take Back America” rally and denounces George W. Bush’s “government of, by and for the ruling corporate class,” leading a “right-wing wrecking crew” engaged in “a deliberate, intentional destruction of the United States way of governing,” you know that something is going on.
That something is the unhinging of the Democratic Party. Democrats are seized with a loathing for President Bush
you would think that with all the damn spending increases democrats would at least not hate him asmuch as they do. Why they hate him remains a mystery to me.
Don’t forget, he’s really damn stupid except for when he’s brilliantly lying and misleading the sheeple. And Rove is the most powerful entity in the universe — one stray look from his evil eye and you will succumb to his will, especially if you are in the media.
Democrats spend their energy hating George Bush because they’ve lost any principles to get excited about. They are without any causes or issues.
I’d say the hammer hit the thumb.
“Bush’s manner is not particularly aggressive.” ?!
Right. So when he recklessly taunts the enemy with , “Bring it on,” deems the U.N. “irrelevant,” (but oops!, they’re suddenly relevant again, now that our troops are sitting ducks for the flood of new terrorists into Iraq that Bush’s war has provoked), smirks when he says, “..or we’ll bring Justice to the terrorists,” divides the world into simplistic ‘us vs. them’ camps, etc. – he’s not aggressive?
“Bush’s manner is not particularly aggressive.”
“F*ck Saddam. We’re taking him out.”-G.Bush
I admit, I do hate George Bush.
Frankly, I think I have very good reasons. I’m rather amazed how many people here don’t mind, even like, being led by the foggiest crystal ball in history (surpluses, WMD, yellowcake, job creation).
The answer to the puzzle of where the depth of feeling comes from, Mr. Krauthammer, is that many of us are not fundamentalists who are uncomfortable with American freedoms — unlike yourself.
It’s fun watching the reactionary left self-destruct.
I don’t really see any ‘self-destruction’ going on here. Let’s just say that doing my part to vote him out next year will be a deep pleasure.
“you would think that with all the damn spending increases democrats would at least not hate him asmuch as they do. Why they hate him remains a mystery to me.”
No kidding Mark. The guy spends more than Clinton in terms of discretionary spending. For example, the Democrats and their propagandists (read Kevin Drum) are spewing spittle about what a liar Bush is about his education spending. But the track record is clear:
Clinton’s 1st 4 years: 10.3% increase in spending
Bush’s 1st 4 years: 24.7% increase in spending
You also forgot that Bush is also planning on taking over the country and running it like his own personal kingdom. Check out Kevin Drum’s interview with Krugman…its scary how nutty Krugman has become.
“I don’t really see any ‘self-destruction’ going on here. Let’s just say that doing my part to vote him out next year will be a deep pleasure.”
Sure, no self-destruction. Nevermind that the left hasn’t come up with any decent policies in what…4-5 years.
I dunno, I kind of enjoy watching lefties writhe in their bitter agony. We’re talking a collective psychosis when it comes to the level of anger and bitterness these folks have for Bush. It is a character flaw of weakness and frustration that they are unable to conceal. It seems to be getting the best of them, and politically it is a fatal flaw, just ask Bob Dole.
I like my President’s aggressive. The passive approach we used in the ’90s got 3000 innocent people murdered. The last aggressive Democratic president, other than sexually aggressive, was John F. Kennedy, and they killed him.
So Bush is “aggressive” because he said “f— Saddam.” Wow, next thing you know, he might get REALLY aggressive and say something nasty about taking out Osama. Watch out!
It will give me great pleasure to vote President Bush out and usher in another period of relative peace and prosperity.
When was the last period?
Wow, with a vote for a US President, Kimmitt can make the entire world live in peace. What is this? Some new X-Man power we don’t know about?
