I recently visited Carly's journal where she had an entry entitled You Look Marvelous. She included a picture of President Bush and her text amused me. She had received a couple of comments expressing their disagreement with her assessment of the president's performance and I left her a comment indicating my agreement with her point of view. To read Carly's original post, follow the link above. Following is my comment to Carly:
I agree with you. I love the "coo-coo for coco puffs crazy!" I can't stop laughing. I was a teenager doing (during) the Vietnam War and I had friends who died in the war and others who came back so emotionally damaged that they never were the same. I don't understand how anyone could think that we should have stayed in that war. We never had a practical strategy for how to win the war and we had no exit strategy. Sounds familiar, huh? I read the other comments and I don't respect their opinions, not unless they are willing to strap on military hardward, climb on a plane, and go to Iraq to support this "good" president.
Today, I received an email from the author of one of the comments who took issue with my comment in Carly's journal. Following is the comment that she had left in Carly's journal prior to my visit.
I totally disagree with your opinion of him, and find it more and more disheartening that people think it's ok to belittle him, but then ask for prayers for him it seems rather contradictory. He's not perfect, but neither am I..the difference is I don't have the whole world judging me on every word I say and every decision I make. Most of us will NEVER know that kind of pressure and stress, yet those who take on this job will never be able to explain that all the ugliness and stress they go through with this job.
Not so long ago, the American public actually respected the position of this job, too bad it's not still that way. Doesn't mean we can't disagree withOUR President, but to show it some respect would be nice.
I give President Bush kudo's for being able tocontinue to stand up for what he believes, even when it goes against the popular opinion, most would have folded a long time ago. Of course the majority of American's are happy to sit in their living room and listened to what the MSM aka LIBERAL media shoves down their throats and take it as the God's honest truth, when quite often it's full of lies and injustice.
My comment was in response to Carly's post and only peripherally to the comments. I wasn't really addressing the comments as much as letting Carly know that I supported her point of view. However, in hindsight, I understand why my comment would not be well received by the others. Following is the email that I received today from one of the commenters.
