The Left calls George W. Bush, BUSHITLER.
They are so wrong it's laughable.
Compared to other presidents the Left admires, Bush is MORE liberal and more of a DOVE!
Lincoln suspended habeus corpus.
But the Left still idolizes him.
Lincoln knew he had to do whatever it took to defeat the Rebels.
And to put slavery on the road to oblivion.
FDR interned 50,000 Japanese AMERICANS in concentration camps.
But the Left still idolizes him.
And they've got a point: FDR ruthlessly fought WW2 - firebombing Dresden, Tokyo - to name just two cities he destroyed along with their civilian populations. FDR dedicated an amount nearly equal to the nation's GNP to build a nuclear bomb - and didn't even ever tell any of his Veeps! He made deals with the likes of Stalin to destroy the likes of Hitler and Tojo. FDR knew he had to do whatever it took to defeat the Nazis.
Bottom-line: FDR deserves adulation and thanks.
AND: NOTHING in Bush's Patriot Act is as anti-libertarian as what Lincoln and FDR did.
And Harry Truman, he was no wimp. He was a good liberal, too: tried to nationalize healthcare and integrated the military.
And, he used TWO Atom bombs to end WW2 - saving a few million of lives our GI's. And perhaps more than ten million JAPANESE lives were saved by his use of the Atom bombs.
Some Lefties decry and deride their use, but they are wrong. They claim he could have demonstrated them on a deserted island. HA! The proof is obvious: Truman had to use two on real cities before the Japanese would surrender. Not even ONE on a real city worked!
Truman knew he had to do whatever it took to defeat the Japanese.
Nothing Bush has done since 9/11 - not in ANY theater of combat - is one one-hundredth as militarily powerful as what FDR and Truman did during WW2.
THEY FOUGHT "NO HOLDS BARRED"; BUSH HAS US FIGHTING WITH ONE HAND BEHIND OUR BACKS.
And then there's the darling of the Left - JFK. In his inaugural, he said we would fight for liberty on any shore. In fact, his inaugural reads like a neocon tract.
JFK started the USA's nuclear arms build up, and tried to slow Soviet enlargement into SE Asia. During the Cuban Missile crisis he told Nikita we would nuke the USSR - and Nikita blinked. It was risky, but JFK knew he had to do whatever it took to defeat the Soviet Union's attempt to put nukes in Cuba.
Now, let's look at Dubya:
W is a buddy of Teddy Jo Kennedy - together they passed a HUGE federal spending bill for education.
W is a buddy of Clinton's - though he's not as close to him as his father!
W is an amigo of Mexican president's who want us to relax our immigration laws and give amnesty to illegals.
He is a big believer in the UN.
He believes the Saudis are our allies in the GWOT.
Comparing Bush to Lincoln and FDR and Truman and JFK, THEY ARE CONSERVATIVE HAWKS and George W. Bush IS A LIBERAL WIMP!
He let North Korea get nukes.
He's done NOTHING BUT TALK to punish "the assasinator" Assad.
He's done NOTHING BUT TALK to stop Iran from getting nukes.
He's letting Putin do whatever he wants.
He passed a HUGE increase in domestic spending: for education and drug-benefits for seniors. He wants to give illegal aliens amnesty.
He calls Islam "a religion of peace."
These are not the actions of a hawk or a right-winger.
They are the inactions of a dove and a liberal. And a wimp.
In fact, that's what "W" really stands for.
DUBYA STANDS FOR WIMP.

YUP: I'm fed up with Bush's HALF-ASSERY. I would NEVER EVER VOTE FOR HIM AGAIN.
That is, unless he ran against a DEMOCRAT!
