Another Democrat Defends Bush

Speaking of malign comments about the Bush administration, one Democrat, and former Gore 2000, Kerry 2004 supporter, Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, wrote a powerful piece that ran Election Day in the Wall Street Journal about the disgraceful mistreatment of the man who is, still, our President. Shapiro was in New York City on 9/11, and though he disliked Bush until then, found himself “inspired” by the President’s actions that day and thereafter.

The treatment President Bush has received from this country is nothing less than a disgrace. The attacks launched against him have been cruel and slanderous, proving to the world what little character and resolve we have. The president is not to blame for all these problems. He never lost faith in America or her people, and has tried his hardest to continue leading our nation during a very difficult time.

Our failure to stand by the one person who continued to stand by us has not gone unnoticed by our enemies. It has shown to the world how disloyal we can be when our president needed loyalty -- a shameful display of arrogance and weakness that will haunt this nation long after Mr. Bush has left the White House.
