Independent Democracy

Thought provoking commentary

Defending Bush is indefensible

Letter to the Editor from the Providence Journal in Rhode Island 4/5/07.

How pathetic that Rhode Island’s Gov. Don Carcieri is “awestruck by George Bush.” (M. Charles Bakst column, March 26).

“This is an immensely talented man whose compassion and caring for this nation is unparalleled,” he told a roomful of, I assume, equally adoring Republicans, given that they gave him a standing ovation.

Talented? Compassionate? Bush?

Where has the governor been the last six years — under the proverbial rock, coming out only to attend dinner parties at the White House or Patriots games in a private luxury box at Foxboro Stadium, to cut funds to poor people, and, of course, bash unions and Democrats? Doesn’t he read? Doesn’t he listen? Doesn’t he care?

Seventy percent of Americans — Democrats, Republicans, and Independents — open minded people who get their information from other than U.S. News & World Report, The Wall Street Journal, or The Weekly Standard, and are not duped by entertainers like radio’s Rush Limbaugh and television’s Bill O’Reilly — know what the governor apparently does not: that this president is totally incompetent, leads an administration of scandalous liars, and cares now only about one thing, his legacy.

It’s a disgrace to be led in this state by a governor who is smitten by a president who will, undoubtedly, go down as one of the two or three worst in history.
