Partisan hysteria has completely warped the reality of many Americans and most of the media outlets.
"Do you think Bush will go down as the worst president of the century or the worst president in American history?" the mainstream media asks.
"Neither," I reply. "Where have you been the last eight years???"
I guess I already know the answer. They've been working hard to make sure Bush got no credit for anything good that happened and blamed for everything under the sun that went wrong.
The bloodlust for destroying our 43rd president was beyond anything I had ever seen...
He never got credit for much of anything, simply because some people were too spiteful and dishonest to give it.
Like millions of others, I never fell for it-- the media's crusade to make W out to be the scapegoat for all that is wrong with America.
Thank you, President Bush for all you endured for us.
We never expected you to be perfect... only Jesus lived the perfect life.
We just wanted someone we could trust to do the right thing, no matter the cost.
...and you made us proud.
You kept us safe from the Islamic Terrorists after 9/11. For that we are forever grateful.
You did all you could to protect the unborn.
You never waivered in your support for traditional marraige.
The economy was strong for much of your time in office, despite the selective memory of our newscasters.
You endured the criticism and scorn of the liberals and the mainstream media, and few men could have done it with such dignity and class.
I believe history will remember you as a great leader, among the likes of Teddy Roosevelt and Abe Lincoln.
May God continue to bless you, and may you find time to rest and recharge, and grow in your relationship with Christ in the coming year.
