George W. Bush, His Last SOTU Address
And Imagined Injustices
President George W. Bush gave his final State of The Union Address Monday night. No doubt there are many Liberals and Progressives who are delighted about this. They are delighted not because of any factually based issues or items that they can tie to him, they are delighted it was his last SOTU Address because they are filled with the worst kind of hatred that anyone can harbor.
Liberals and Progressives have spent seven years full of hatred of President Bush based upon nothing more than their imagined injustices. Imagined injustices about Bush stealing both the year 2000 and 2004 presidential elections even though there is no proof, at all whatsoever, to support their imagined injustice. Countless reviews and recounts of Florida 2000 were conducted by several independent organizations as well as the very liberal New York Times. All reached the same conclusion; that Bush was the winner and no vote rigging took place.
The same applies to the 2004 presidential election and the state of Ohio, where Liberals and Progressives claim that the Diebold voting machine were rigged for Bush. Where is their proof for this? It doesn't exist. By all means ask then-Democrat presidential nominee John Kerry about the afternoon of election day in 2004. Ask him - ask John Kerry - why is it his campaign knew by late afternoon that he had lost, they internally conceded; they knew they had lost and internally acknowledged it as they received the information based on exit-polling. There was no need to rig the election in Ohio, Kerry knew by late afternoon he had lost.
If Liberals and Progressives have an imagined injustice with the No Child Left Behind Act, their problem is with the author of NCLB, Ted Kennedy, the U.S. Democrat Senator of Massachusetts. He wrote NCLB, not Bush.
If Liberals and Progressives have an imagined injustice about the War in Iraq and Saddam Hussein's Weapons of Mass Destruction, their problem is with the administration that preceded Bush. For it was Bill Clinton's Administration who set the stage for WMDs. Vice President Al Gore, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Janet Reno, CIA Director James Woolsey, National Security Advisor Sandy Berger and a host of other Democrat politicians - John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, Robert Byrd, John Edwards, to name a few - all of whom are on record that Hussein had WMDs or was working to obtain them. All of their statements are on record before George W. Bush was even a candidate for the White House.
The problem of Iraq was only exacerbated due to the economic sanctions levied by the Clinton Administration, sanctions that left an estimate 500,000 Iraqis dead because of a lack of medicine due to Clinton's embargo. Bill Clinton, afraid of risking his popularity, could only muster up sanctions against Iraq. The mess he created had to be cleaned up by Bush and Bush correctly used the U.S. Military. This is another imagined injustice that Liberals and Progressives harbor because deep down they know Clinton did nothing to address critical problems developing in Iraq and by Saddam Hussein.
Bill Clinton was a weak president by any standard. His course of action was to appease and pacify countries and leaders who sought to harm us or our allies. Albright meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Il is a shining example of Clinton's weak and ineffective foreign policy.
September 11, 2001? Clinton and Company had all the warning signs. They dealt with it as they did almost everything else, by ignoring all the signs. They were too busy killing American citizens in Waco, Texas; deporting a six-year old Cuban boy and covering up the truth about the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. They were too busy fundraising from Chinese communist, renting out the Lincoln bedroom, hiding Whitewater files, snooping into 900 or 1,000 FBI files (does anyone yet know who hired Craig Livingstone?), covering up the truth about the deaths of Vince Foster, Ron Brown and James McDougal. This is only the tip of the ice berg of the corruption committed by the Clinton Administration.
Instead of admitting the myriad of failures during the Clinton Administration regarding terrorism, the Liberals and Progressives concoct remarkably absurd theories that it was Bush and Cheney and the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy that planned the attacks of September 11. Of course proving their allegations doesn't matter, because the Left only has to keep repeating a lie long enough until some people believe it as the truth. Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Goebbels would be most proud of the Liberals and Progressives these past seven years.
Liberals and Progressives have an imagined injustice in asserting that Bush "gutted" the U.S. Constitution, but they cannot point to one single item in the Constitution that has negated or reduced their civil liberties. They may clamor about spying or wiretapping, but anyone who bases their standing on facts instead of emotions knows these claims of "gutting" the Constitution are false. The only people who were subject to surveillance were people contacting or attempting to contact known and identified terrorists or sympathizers of terrorism who resided outside of the United States.
Liberals and Progressives have been fed lies by the liberal media and press and by liberal talk radio. This media only helps to perpetuate imagined injustices that Liberals and Progressives believe. While facts easily disprove their beliefs, the Liberals and Progressives are too filled with hatred to let facts change their minds, for to do so they would have to admit they are wrong.
Liberals and Progressives have an imagined injustice that it was Bush who sent so many jobs overseas and to Mexico. The truth is that this was done by Bill Clinton signing NAFTA - the North American Free Trade Agreement. It is Clinton, not Bush, who made it easier for U.S. companies to export jobs where their cost of labor would be dramatically cheaper than in America.
Never has there been such hatred and unbound hypocrisy from Liberals and Progressives. They are so wrapped up in what is commonly called Bush Derangement Syndrome - a hatred of all things Bush and Dick Cheney - that they cannot see the truth or the facts in any issue or subject. They will not allow themselves to acknowledge any truth or fact.
No matter what your political ideology is, one cannot help to ask themselves this question: How much better off would the U.S. be, how much better off would our allies be, how much better would the world be and how much worse off would the terrorists be if all the hatred and imagined injustices by the Liberals and Progressives had been set aside and instead had worked toward common goals of improving the body politic rather than working so hard to divide it.
Never in the eight years of the Clinton presidency did Conservatives or Republicans manifest the degree of hatred, anger and animosity that has been exhibited by Liberals and Progressives towards President Bush.
Finally, last night when Bush made a joke about the IRS accepting checks and money orders, the Liberals couldn't even laugh or crack a smile. They behaved like the robotic humorless androids that they are. No wonder they are such a depressed, unhappy group of bleak and forlorn individuals. Liberals and Progressives are entrenched in their misery and tirelessly work to drag everyone else down to their level.
So much for Bush and his SOTU Addresses. We all can look forward to four - make that eight - SOTU Addresses delivered by the calm, dulcet and seductive vocal qualities that Hillary possesses.
