It's getting very confusing for those on the left when they find more in common with conservatives than they find different, but with the decider's approval ratings sliding lower and lower, he is decidedly the most unpopular president in modern history. Even the Nixon family is regaining their reputation.
It seems while Republican Presidential candidates are standing in line to compare themselves to Ronald Reagan, despite his legacy of Alzheimer's, they are standing in quiet yet growing lines of those who distance themselves from the man who appears to be the worst President in history.
On this, the true conservatives and, well, everybody else except Bush's children agree, and frankly I haven't heard his twin daughters nor his wife defend him recently.
I have recently had to avoid my general assumptions that the GOP is steadfast as more and more of my Republican friends tell me they are more angry than I. People didn't understand until now that there really are some Republican that do love America and can admit when they were wrong. It is difficult for both extremes, but in this case, only so much weight on the chest can be resisted before suffocation. Mr. Bush has brought shame on his party, family, our military, his co-workers and government as a whole.
We may very well never repair the damage he has done to the entire system and its legitimacy. We are in a constitutional crisis and all with higher than a 50 IQ or an income lower than a billion would agree he has hurt America. Frankly, I don't know any billionaire Republicans personally, so it's hard to even get someone into a fight unless I visit the local Nazi party, and they are even hard to find nowadays; and I live in Georgia.
From staunch Right Wing News to the liberal San Fransisco Sentinel, we find people holding hands ready to lynch the President. Some may want his neck because he has made them unelectable, while others hate him for simply ignoring the value of life (at least those already born).
On one thing we all agree, the men and women in Iraq have been incredibly mismanaged and the President has used them in an attempt to look like a "real man". Even W's father suggested recently "there is Bush fatigue" when he was asked about the possibility of younger Bush brother, Jeb, having a chance of filling W's shoes. If this is what GHWB and Barbara say, imagine what they think.
