Bush Does Not Care About Disadvantaged American ChildrenPerspective by Tim King Salem-News.com
Even when given a chance, President George W. Bush makes it clear that he will not help his nation's sick children.
(SALEM, Ore.) - We just have to face it; the Bush White House could care less if your child is sick or well, alive or dead. It is all a numbers game when you are George W. Bush, and the only things you care about are yourself and those who intensely celebrate your existence.
Needless amounts of hard earned taxpayer resources have been blundered on a war that we were not prepared for. Just ask any soldier who had to use an unarmored HUMVEE or one of the ever so popular Ford Ranger pickups in the war theater what they think of George W. Bush, the answers would surprise you.
People think that placing a "troop support" bumper sticker on their car gets them out of it. But staying above the fray is not the goal here, and people need to think about how horrific it would truly be to have a flight of U.S. jet fighters bearing down on your town or village with JDAM's and other entirely destructive munitions.
In the meanwhile, Bush had a chance to send a message to the people that he really cares about kids by allowing the Children's Health Care legislation to move along by legislative vote. But Bush really doesn't care about our kids, after all his children are doing fine, and I think his veto sends a potently clear message about his personal sense of priorities. It sends the same message about every legislator who sided with him.
His supporters go forward denying the facts, ignoring the truth, failing to help, and I predict that the day is not far off when people will view their support of this embarrassing president with deep thought, and shame.
The ones I respect the most are those who will just stand there and admit everything; they are sometimes prejudice, so killing people in the Mid-East does not torture their conscience, and neither does the anti-immigration nonsense that has gripped the country for a couple of years. It is nothing but a smokescreen to deflect attention away from Bush's failing war efforts, don't they see that?
I am proud of my country, I support those who serve their nation, and I am vastly ashamed by what our country has become. It is not your fault or mine, we don't make the decisions, but blind support for this man in Washington D.C. is increasing the ailment. We were never supposed to accept this type of politics, and yet we have.
All we can do is hang on now and hope that a new president will somehow find a way to lead us out of this ugly mess. It is indeed a sad day in America.
