scratch that. THIS was the best email of the day....


I honestly, truly believe that he (W) will one day, in time, be regarded by all, as one of the greatest presidents this country has ever had.

He endured 9-11, the worst attack in US history.
He endured Katrina, the worst natural disaster in US history.
He endured the worst economic crisis since the depression.
And through everything -- stayed unwavering in his attempt to make this country better, regardless of public opinion which swayed like a windsock in the breeze.

This country tried to maintain a moral hardline and now moral relativism and post modernism is being ushered in.....HOORAY!

Never again will we fight for anything we believe in, at the risk of offending others. To sum it up let me quote a British philosopher:

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things.
The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.
The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

aww, he is so grown up now!

And he is so right about everything W endured. What would have happened if Obama was in office then?
...oh people are so blinded...they think he is going to save the world and if he does it will only be because Bush helped him get there.
