As I just read the article about George Soros i could see the hatred for Bush. It seems that the main thing opponents of Bush and Ashcroft don’t like about them is that they have a clear view of right and wrong. Bottom line, they do believe in right and wrong based on their faith. So many people cannot accept that someone can believe in absolutes. Well, a lot of us do including our President and Attorney General. They believe that the terrorists are bad guys and must be confronted and stopped. It doesn’t matter to them (relatively speaking) what the root cause is because no matter the root cause, they are bent on killing more people. In fact, they would be negligent in their duties if they weren’t going after the terrorists, now knowing how they can strike.
The first few weeks after 9/11 it seemed that most people, except the ACLU types, understood who the good guys and bad guys were. We had moral clarity. Thank God that President Bush and his administration still does.
