History will not judge kindly

all those so-called Democrats and Leftists who have knowingly and eagerly participated in the demonisation of President Bush:

JEFFREY SCOTT SHAPIRO, an investigative reporter and lawyer who previously interned with John F. Kerry's legal team during the presidential election in 2004, writes in the WSJ about the disgraceful practice of demonising president Bush:

."..Just as Americans have gained perspective on how challenging Truman's presidency was in the wake of World War II, our country will recognize the hardship President Bush faced these past eight years -- and how extraordinary it was that he accomplished what he did in the wake of the September 11 attacks.

The treatment President Bush has received from this country is nothing less than a disgrace. The attacks launched against him have been cruel and slanderous, proving to the world what little character and resolve we have. The president is not to blame for all these problems. He never lost faith in America or her people, and has tried his hardest to continue leading our nation during a very difficult time.

Our failure to stand by the one person who continued to stand by us has not gone unnoticed by our enemies. It has shown to the world how disloyal we can be when our president needed loyalty -- a shameful display of arrogance and weakness that will haunt this nation long after Mr. Bush has left the White House. "

Unless there happens further erosion of academic and ethical standards of enquiry and search for truth in the universities and the media, I am convinced that in due time, President Bush's doctrine and policies will be noted by future historians for their perspicuity and courage.

P-E Obama has already been hailed as the modern re-incarnation of Abe Lincoln. Why? How? If anyone deserves the Lincoln analogy, it is George W. Bush, who thought it was possible to bring democracy and order to a part of the world which has never known any of the freedoms and lawfulness which we take for granted. There are American Southerners to this day who hold Lincoln to be a war criminal, in pretty much the same way and for the same reasons President Bush is sometimes accused of these days. Yet history and the world remember Lincoln as the liberator of Slaves.

Comparing the Confederacy to Saddam Husseins Iraq is quite the stretch there. Id almost be offended if it werent so ridiculous.

Abe Lincoln wanted to save the Union, and that is it. He repeatedly offered assurance that slavery would not be outlawed if the Confederacy were to lay down their arms and rejoin the Union. The Union under Abe Lincoln held slaves and continued to do so after the Civil War ended. So your analogy is severely slave holding Enlightened Classically Liberal Democracy attacking another slave holding Enlightened Clasically Liberal Democracy....not to end slavery but to subjugate to an imperial will, unfair taxation and redistribution and favored access to raw materials.

But I can see what you are attempting there.

The problem is that there is no coherency on the Left. Lincoln good, Bush bad is perfectly acceptable to them....because everybody knows that American Southerners are evil bastards, unlike those wonderful Shia and Sunni in Iraq.
