President Bush has been everyone’s favorite whipping boy the last several years. Every President makes an easy target, but the treatment given this one has been especially unfair, says Jeffery Scott Shapiro:
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.
I suspect that as the new President begins his own struggle with America’s problems, Bush will continue to get blamed for everything.
