Goodbye and God Speed, Mr. President

Today is President Bush’s last day in office. Tomorrow he joins that exclusive club of Ex-Presidents on the golf course and lecture circuit. The Obama Four-Year-Circus begins.

He was known by the American people for his private compassion for families who paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. As CIC, he oversaw the most successful American military campaign ever. He held a nation together after the horror of 9/11. He ignored his numerous detractors and brought a quiet grace back to the office of the President. You wouldn’t know it, though, if you only got your news from the MSM.

Remember us, Mr. President. Remember us when we are burdened with new taxes, when we are silenced by new regulations as to what to say and when we can say it, when we lose our jobs, when we can no longer defend our families and lands against the murderers the new administration will welcome with open arms. Remember us, Mr. President, for we will never forget you.

    Are you kidding? You can not possibly be posting this for real…. New taxes? Silenced by new regulations?
    We just ended an era that should have never begun.

    Thank you so much for posting this.

    If being a President were purely a popularity contest, Obama might have a chance. It’s about being a strong Leader, especially during the times like 9/11. Mr.Obama is untested. Maybe he will rise to the challenge, maybe not. But for people to assume he has already earned a distinction of greatness, shows very much their ignorance.

    Farewell President Bush. You chose strength over popularity.
