Dr. Sanity: WYSIWYG

Monday, December 05, 2005
There's a reason she's called 'Dr Sanity':
Bush does not pretending to be intellectually superior and can easily make fun of himself. Nor does it seem to matter much to him that everyone doesn't totally adore him. He tackles hard problems head on (which most politicians lack the courage to do) and perseveres in trying to fix them. He indeed "muddles along", misspeaks, and even screws up from time to time; but he presses on and actually gets things done.

That is what matters most to me.

He has achieved far more in the 5 years of his presidency (which still has 3 years to go) than either his father or Bill Clinton did in 12 years.

People say Bush went into Iraq for power or money..but the truth is he could have made his own life a lot easier by letting this cup pass.

But he did not.

When I got up today and turned on the tv to see 'if the world was still there' I saw Bush giving a speech.

I decided I want him as our President for another 8 years after his term is up.

I find him an amazing man. It's the Republicans in Congress that are driving me nuts.

Syl said...

Oh, and btw my Joe calls Bush the quintessential American.

He's right.

As is Dr. Sanity.

Politicians just don't know how to deal with such a person.

Gale says Bush is a real American. I guess that is the same thing.

Maybe that is what some people hate about him, he is too American.

Well, I think he's a decent man doing a difficult job that turned out a lot different than he expected.

Quintessentially American? Perhaps. Keep on plugging away - its the only way. That's what he does and I'm glad for it. I was just reading a little book about Everyday Life in Early America. In it the author mentioned that in 17th century America it took two working generations, 50 years, to clear a normal sized farm's fields of trees and rocks.

I suspect the Euros fields have been cleared for so many centuries that they've long since forgotten how to work for the long haul.

George Bush has one defining quality,he is on your side..which is more than I can say for the Right Honourable Anthony Charles Lynton Blair MP who seems to be on everybodies side but ours.

I don't know which side Howard Dean is on but it doesn't look like America's

He gets up early in the morning, gets where he's going on time, and goes to bed early at night. He is disciplined.

The biggest mistaken he made in Iraq--one never on anybody's list--was dithering around waiting for UN permission before launching the invasion. It gave Saddam too much time to make plans.

Would the Brits have come along without the UN farce?
