Letter: Hate-filled comments crossed the line
I seldom read the Washington Merry-Go-Round column in your newspaper because it never changes, just the usual insults from the left toward any and all that don’t fall into line with the "I don’t like America" mantra, but today it hit bottom.
The bias, spiteful, hate-filled comments about President George W. Bush ("After the White House," April 11 issue) crossed the line and frankly, I pity those who think this way because the day will come, as it always does, when they will have to pay the bill for their lies and the damage they do to America.
President Bush and his wife were regularly beaten with insults by people like this, and even though the media tried very hard to dig up dirty secrets on both of them, they failed, because they don’t have any to dig up. The worst they found was that President Bush had to face his problem with alcohol and then stopped drinking! They beat this to death as long as they could, but ignored the courage he displayed in the process.
President Bush is a strong Christian and has the courage to stand up for the values given us by God, and I am thankful he was our president. He proved his worth after the gut punch of 9/11. He focused all his energy taking care of us, and has that rare quality of humility that enabled him to forget about himself and put America first.
As for Carter and Obama, well, they have a lot in common as both are arrogant and full of self-love. Neither one of them is half the person or president that George W. Bush is/was, and history will show this. Neither Carter nor Obama know how to lead and the state of America when under Carter and now under Obama is evidence.
No matter how hard he tries, with all the help and cover-up provided by the media that got him in office, Obama can’t blame President Bush for the problems Obama has made. All the lies in the world won’t change reality, but reality is completely lost on the left, so they keep doing the same thing—trying to gain power by pointing fingers at everyone else and doing nothing that builds strength and holds our people together.
I thank God that there are Constitutional laws that prevent more than two terms for president, because we will have more problems than we need after this term is done.
