Bush Bashing The Hot New Sport!?
August 18th, 2004 | Clark Erik McCallister

Posted on 08/18/2004 12:24:43 PM PDT by ClarkErikMcCallister

Did anybody notice that more Bush bashing came in when the president stepped in to assess the Hurricane Charley situation? I heard a number of prominant Democrats imply that his intentions were nothing more than politics; and yet if he ignored the situation, they'd be the first to say that "he didn't care"!? Something is not right here. It seems to me that bashing the president has gotten so out of hand that many who do so, do it without using common logic. It almost makes me wish Bush would win, just so that the bashers would whine some more. Just shows that the other side is never happy. They can't even take pride in their own "acheivements".

7 minutes to read to kids was way to LONG.

48 hours to enter FL to personally review the situation was way to SHORT.

See!

Bush can't win (except with yours and mine votes).

Do YOU feel the power?

I think if it's going to be the newest national 'sport', then there should be some sort of rules, and teams, competitions, and playoffs, etc. Maybe if they concentrated on just one-upping and beating the other teams, then we could get the real news and facts into the newspapers and on the so-called 'news' programs on air.

But of course: Bush bashers hate everthing about the president (and I do mean everthing!) and will criticize him for everything he does; or if he doesn't do something, criticize him for that.Such criticism deserves to be utterly ignored.

I agree that the president is likely to win, but muslims (inside the US and abroad), Brits, Canadians, and Euro wimps encountered in chat rooms, are convinced Kerry is as good as in.

We may have a possible convert here, one thing for sure, if he's a Democrat, he has noticed not only his own party's hypocrisy, but that of the media. Hope this is a trend.

There's nothing new about Bush bashing. It started in June 1999.

Dear Editor:

The following items are from just one day’s letters to the editor in the Forum on August 18th. Various authors assert about Vice President Cheney:

“Tricky Dick Cheney, (is) court jester to ‘King’ George”
“Lies about Iraq WMD...lies about an Iraq-al Qaida connection, or remaining on the Haliburton payroll, or his declarations about the need for a drill and burn energy policy, or his crony capitalism”
Is “the invisible man”
Is involved in “illegal practices in the name of money and power”
Serves “the interests of his wealthy business partners”
“Create(d) the huge oil industry profits at our expense”
“Is a chicken hawk”
“All the court jester can spew is kill, kill, kill”
Caused “broken promises, bankrupt national economy, being hated around the world, and being in the crosshairs of al Qaida”

I count five instances of name calling and at least eleven unsubstantiated accusations.

It is sad to see the once proud party of FDR, Truman and JFK consumed by hate. I hope that after the election season they find some love in their hearts and helpful policy positions for America.

Sincerely,

Brad Cloven
Fargo, ND

Here's an easy "explanation" of it.

He said that he "almost" wants to see Bush win just to get the whiners to whine even more. The way I read it was, even leaving aside all the other reasons to want Bush to win, the simple pleasure of Schadenfraude would be enough to root for him. I rather agree with him there.

I agree with the other posters who have noted that the Zot triggers are a bit too happy lately. Understandably, given the high level of troll activity, but at the same time nothing will turn actual converts off quicker than unjust accusations.

Most of us want him to win because he's the best man for the job. I share your offense at the out of control Bush bashing, though.

Welcome Clark.

I keep trying to figure out the "strategery" behind the Bush bashing, do they think that they'll just wear out the Republicans and Independents to the point they will just vote for Kerry so that the whining will stop?

Two days...... two posts...... two vanities....

Yes, the President is in a no win situation with a lot of what he does.... It's a be damned if you do and a be damned if you don't.... But he does seem to pay that no mind and tries to do the correct thing, imo. Like you I hope he wins only mine is more than 'almost hope'....

If you are gonna hang around it maybe that you'd like to review the following... good luck and have fun.

Hmmm. This can be interpreted in several ways. You almost hope he would win... but not quite? Grammatical faux pas (that's French), or a Freudian slip?

Don't feel bad. I try to give them the benefit of the doubt unless they're obvious trolls too. Especially this time of year. After reading a post like that one, I'm inclined to think "kids, out of school, perhaps they've heard of us in the chat rooms and are trying to get a real dialog going because they want to get to the truth"
