Open Letter to George Bush

Dear President Bush,

You have really let us down. Half the country voted for you in two elections, which you narrowly won. We had hopes that you, as a businessman and oil man, would address the energy situation. Seven years after 9/11, you have done nothing and now the oil producers have this country by the balls (I don’t know how else to put it). We are in the process of paying a terrible penalty for you (as well as 5 previous presidents) doing nothing to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

With a Republican majority in both houses, we had hopes you would accomplish something of substance, that you would begin to solve the many problems facing this country. Instead you got us involved in a costly war that we have no business being in. Like many other wars in recent history, this war in Iraq may cause as many problems as it solves, if it even solves anything at all.

You don’t know what I mean? Of course you don’t. I’ll give you an example. By eliminating Saddam Hussein, you have upset the balance of power in the Middle East. Iraq was a counter-force to Iran. Now Iran has nobody to fear, so it may become a bigger threat than Iraq ever was.

Because of your poor performance as president, you have effectively destroyed the Republican Party’s chances for the foreseeable future. In all fairness, I have to say a do-nothing Republican Congress helped seal their own fate. The Republicans’ only hope is that the people will vote out the do-nothing Democratic Congress, and may be too scared of Obama’s far left leanings that they will vote for a “safer” candidate, McCain.

Mr. President, I don’t know if you are a moron or evil – probably a little bit of both. I’m afraid you’ll go down in history as one of our worst presidents. You wanted to leave a legacy, and you did, but not the kind you wanted. You hoped to be ranked with Lincoln, Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt, but instead you’ll be there with Andrew Johnson and Herbert Hoover. History will judge you harshly, and it’s your own stupid fault.

Let us pray that our future leadership will be morally and ethically upright, will be honest and open with the people, and will have the courage to begin to solve the very tough problems facing this country. Let us pray that the citizens of this country will be willing to do what it takes to get this country back on track, and they will be willing to make the sacrifices and compromises necessary. Let us also pray to Almighty God for his mercy and grace upon a nation that has ignored him, ridiculed him, has been apathetic towards him, yet feels it deserves peace and prosperity.
