And so it ends – eight years of President George W. Bush. Millions throughout the world seem ecstatic about the end of a presidential administration they despised, the exit of a man who dared to, among other things, stand tough in defending America. Since Sept. 11, 2001, there have been no additional enemy attacks on our nation, much to the irritation of America’s foreign and domestic enemies. Ask our military and security personnel, and I’ll wager you’ll hear more praise than criticism for Bush.
President Bush and his classy wife, Laura, perpetrated one last heinous act in their final days at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.: They were gracious and warm and cooperative to incoming President Obama, his classy wife, Michelle, and their transition staffs. The Obamas returned the Bush warmth and graciousness, resulting in one of the smoothest and least contentious transfers of power in America’s history. Some leftist media and bloggers are already criticizing President Obama for this alleged friendship.
It is a given that the hate-mongers will always vilify George W. Bush. Their bitter diatribes are grossly unfair smears not only on Bush, but also on the millions of Americans who voted for him. Bush-haters in the liberal mainstream media left little doubt they were in the tank with Barack Obama; NBC, MSNBC and the New York Times were the most blatant offenders – and they are now on the brink of bankruptcy. They must not grasp the wisdom of the bromide, “When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.”
