Dear Bush Beat: 'Bush is Better Than You'
Subject: Bush is better than you
You might have a shred of credibility if, just once, somewhere, sometime, you condemned the true mass-murderers of history with the same conviction you condemn our good President and our great country.
In the 20th century alone, the power of government was used by Stalin, Hitler, [Kim Il] Sung, Castro, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot, and Saddam, among many others, to murder about 150 million innocent people. Today, terrorists like Zarquawi seek to gain that power in order to murder even more.
The United States, as imperfect as it is, is the country that has done the most of any country in history to stop the tyrants and promote freedom. Your blind hatred of a good man who is doing a good job of protecting us is shameful. Your irrational, emotional, and petty tirades reveal your absolute ignorance of the truth.
Thanks for writing, Mike. You have a right to go nuclear on me, the way Harry Truman did in 1945 to those civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I have to say, however, that your irrational, emotional, and petty tirades reveal your absolute ignorance of the truth. But thanks for writing.
