- i think we all can agree that GWB's motives are not out of benevolence.
I think I could find people who would not agree with that
-- Ronn! :)
i meant on brinlist. most of us would agree that bush's benevolent
form of compassionate conservatism is aimed at the wealthy class. he
is far more interested in funding war rather than water resources, for
Despite what this war cost our family -- it'll be three years tomorrow
since Wes was killed in action -- I'm willing to give Bush the benefit
of the doubt where it comes to motives. He very well may believe he's
doing the right thing. But I don't really know, nor do I much care.
But I think I'd be treating myself badly if I didn't allow myself to
have some degree of
compassion, even for someone whose politics I despise. That's where I
diverge from the anti-war folks who demonize the administration.
nick, i am very sorry you lost a family member. like almost everyone
else i support our troops and grieve for all those who have suffered
from this war. i have have brought many of our troops over there and
it weighs heavily on me that many did not come back.
i don't hate any republican and democrat who were duped into supporting
this war. i do blame bush, cheney, rumsfeld and the neo-cons for the
unconstitutional practices they used to justify this war, and the
illegal tactics they contrived to manipulate many patriotic americans
to buy into the rationale for this war.
