Was President Bush Right?
|I believe in giving credit where credit is due, and this is one of those moments.|
Most of you know I am a pretty strong partisan when it comes to politics. But I try to be fair.
I can't stand it when the two sides of our political divide are guilty of some horrible behavior when the other party is in office, but get chagrined when it happens to their guy. To me that is part of the problem in politics today.
We need an atmosphere that will allow each side to celebrate the accomplishments of the other side, simply because it is, or even may be good for our country.
Let's face it, Republicans are about as likely to be Worshipers of Satan as Democrats are to be part of the Sons of Hitler Facebook group.
So let me say this.
While I am not sure it will all work out as we might wish, President Bush was an early voice calling for democracy in the Middle East, something perhaps we are seeing in the earliest stages today in places like Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia.
Additionally, let's give Bush and his administration credit for the work they did in curtailing the nuclear ambitions of Libya and their leader, Mr. Qaddafi. [ Read more about it here ] You might remember it was in 2003 that then President Bush and his administration announced the removal of the remnants of the Libyan nuclear program. Can you imagine what we might be looking at today in that country had that not come to pass?
George Bush, it looks like ya done good!
