I am sorry that I offended your political sensativities in referring to Bush as an idiot, but I was just trying to be nice. The trouble with your argument that we should respect the office by respecting the man in it has problems. Fact is, Bush himself dosen't seem to respect the office.
He obtained the office by suspecious means in 2000; some may even say he stole the office.
He lied to get the USA into a war in Iraq, and since to keep us there and feed his ego.
He has proven to have distain for people with horrible diseases, by using his one and only veto to date, to deny hope to many who are sick.
He has attempted to decieve us with words on his horrible stand on the environment, while allowing logging in our national forrest, relaxing pollution laws for air and water. He even tried to sell parts of our National Forrest.
He bought the religeous right by promissing to give millions of tax dollars to these religeous organizations. (and you thought it was all about principal ???)
He has put this country so far in debt that every citizen now owes over $30,000 from the time he is born.
As you see, there are a lot of words I could have used, but, wait---
Websters says an idiot has trougle stringing words together to convey thought, and that he sees things in a simplistic way.
Maybe that word is not so far off-
