Even Supporters Doubt President as Issues Pile Up

"Leesa Martin never considered President Bush a great leader, but she voted for him a year ago because she admired how he handled the terrorist attacks of 2001. Then came the past summer, when the death toll from the war in Iraq hit this state particularly hard: 16 marines from the same battalion killed in one week. She thought the federal government should have acted faster to help after Hurricane Katrina. She was baffled by the president's nomination of Harriet E. Miers, a woman she considered unqualified for the Supreme Court, and disappointed when he did not nominate another woman after Ms. Miers withdrew. And she remains unsettled by questions about whether the White House leaked the name of a C.I.A. agent whose husband had accused the president of misleading the country about the intelligence that led to the war."

"Many people who voted for Mr. Bush a year ago had trouble pinning their current discontent on any one thing. Many mentioned the hurricane and the indictment of a top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, which some said raised doubts about the president's candor and his judgment. But there was a sense that something had veered off course in the last few months, and the war was the one constant. Over and over, even some of Mr. Bush's supporters raised comparisons with Vietnam." [NYT]

To those of you that voted for him: Too bad. You made the (poor) choice to vote for Bush, now you have to live with it. Problem is, we all have to live with it. I don't feel bad for you at all, now changing your mind about Bush and his administration. Maybe if you would have voted your own best interests to begin with, you wouldn't be where you are today, and maybe we as a nation wouldn't be where we are today.

My parting shot: where are the democrats??? Stand up for yourselves! Show America and the World that we are not going to take it anymore, this fleecing of America, this attacking and stealing from other nations, this diminishing of us in the World's eyes. We are better than this! Show us what you stand for before it's too late.
