Why Liberals Hate The President

Why Liberals Hate The President

The War on Terror ... Liberal Style

Over the past years since 9/11 and before, I have noticed that there seems to be an intense hatred for President Bush. I'm not talking about just a dislike or disagreement about issues. I'm talking about a passionate, personal hatred of President Bush. I have personally seen hate fed language from John Kerry, Howard Dean, Hillary Clinton, Teddy Kennedy, Al Gore, Michael Moore, and the list goes on and on. After observing this hatred, I decided to explore the reasons for this.

The first reason liberals hate Bush is that they feel that he stole the 2000 Presidential election. They point to the fact that Al Gore won the popular vote. Bush was not the first President to be elected without winning the popular vote. As we all know, the Presidency is decided by electoral votes, not by the popular vote. Whether or not you agree with this system that is the way it is and will be until the Constitution is amended. Bush and Gore both campaigned in so called "swing states" for electoral votes. Crying about this issue is like deciding after you lost a football game that the score should be based on yards gained instead of touchdowns and field goals. You can't change the rules just because you don't like the outcome. That is not the way this great country works. (The “chad” issue aside, you should educate yourself before going to the polling place.)

The second reason the liberals hate Bush is the fact that he is a man of sincere Christian faith. This scares a lot of liberals. Bush openly gives credit to God and admits that his decisions are influenced by his faith. Any true believer will allow their faith to enter into their decisions. Sincere faith is rare in today's politicians. Liberals don't like the fact that this country was founded by men who believed in God. The
United States of America was created to be a haven for all religions and allow the freedom to practice any faith or none at all. The First Amendment to the Constitution states that, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." This includes the office of the President, like it or not.

The third reason liberals hate Bush results from his view of who can best protect America. President Bush believes the United States should make the decisions about what is best to keep us safe. If the rest of the world supports us great, if they don't, we'll still do what is necessary to ensure our safety. Some liberal politicians want the United Nations to tell us what we should and should not do to keep us safe. This is the same UN who placed Syria, one of the world's largest sponsors of terrorism, on the UN Security Council. Also the same UN, who some members from Germany, Russia, France, and others accepted bribes from Saddam Hussein in the UN's oil for food program. It sure explains why they didn't want him taken out of power. The Democrats would have you believe that the United States acted alone. Yes, we are bearing the largest burden, but other countries have joined with us such as Great Britain, Australia, and others.

The fourth reason liberals hate Bush is the fact that they have lost power. The Democrats realize that unless they can brainwash a new generation of liberals, they will continue to loose power. A lot of the "close your eyes, shut your ears, I'm a Democrat because my daddy's, daddy's, daddy was a Democrat" people are getting older. The Democrat support, especially in the South, is drying up.

The fifth reason liberals hate Bush is that he has introduced his own version of many Democrat ideas. Examples of this include expanding legal immigration, the No Child Left Behind legislation, and prescription drug benefits for seniors. The Democrats feel like they lost the opportunity to boast about these programs themselves.

I don't agree with all of the administration's ideas. For instance I didn't agree with the Harriet Meyers nomination, the Dubai deal or Bush’s immigration policies. I do not walk lock step with my political party.

What I do know is if Al Gore or John Kerry had won the election they would be doing the same thing that George Bush is doing, protecting the citizens of the United States of America. As a citizen of the United States, I would not be trying to undercut him just because my guy lost the election. This is what I am seeing in the New Liberal Democratic Party (A National Party No More), a bunch of sore losers.

I do not believe that the war terror is going to be easy, especially with the politically correct war our troops are forced to engage in. However, the one thing I do believe and keep saying to anyone who will listen is that: "we will never see the end of terrorists or the terrorist mentality as long as young children are raised to hate as an essential part of their culture and destiny."
