It would be nice to say that I wish Bush well in his second term. But I don’t.
I don’t like or trust the man and the people who work with him. It’s that simple.
When Bush makes an appeal for "unity" so that the country can move forward, I cringe because Bush and his team are never interested in compromise
And compromise is what’s required for unity.
They don’t want unity, they want capitulation.
For example, he just re-nominated ten nominees to the federal court who had already been deemed unfit to serve by the last Senate. That’s not compromise.
That’s an insult, a slap in the face, a taunt.
That’s the way these guys work.
And so I on the day after his inaugural, I find myself hoping he fails to achieve his grand plans.
And I find myself resolved to do my part to help the opposition find the people, the money, and the message to fight back.
UPDATE: It looks like half the country agrees with me that Bush is no "uniter".
