"Dubya's Grand Hypocrisy" Email Responses

By       (Page 1 of 4 pages)   5 comments
Thought I would share some of the email reaction (including my responses) I received to "Dubya's Grand Hypocrisy". Names have been removed to respect the privacy of everybody, and to protect the ignorant from painful ridicule.

Read the original piece here.

One of the great promises that stem cell research holds is that of repairing damaged spinal cords, like those GWB has created for those lucky enough to live through a roadside bomb in Iraq. I guess GB is saying that when he puts someone in a wheelchair, he expects them to stay there. What a joke.

Your commentary is more diatribe and rhetoric than it is educated discussion, and I can only hope that your intent is more to garner laughs than to sway public opinion or foster thoughtful dialogue.

But you're getting paid for what you do in some fashion or another, and I guess that's all that matters.

Thanks for writing.

Certainly you understand that Op-Ed pieces are not discussion. They are opinion, which everyone is entitled to. If they foster educated discussion, I'm all for it.

You may disagree with my opinion and dislike the way I write, which is fine, but the article is also packed with truth. You can denounce me to your heart's content, but you cannot change the ugly criminal reality that is the George W. Bush administration, and that's not just your problem. It's everybody's problem.

The difference between us, apparently (and please feel free to correct me if this is not the case), is that I'm trying to help bring about the positive change our country so desperately needs, while you are seemingly content with the very dangerous status quo of the most corrupt executive branch in the history of our country.

Finally, to set the record straight, I do not get paid for writing. I have a totally unrelated job that pays my bills. I write because I like to. It's also my way of trying to make a meaningful contribution to our national discourse.

Thanks again for writing.
You really hate Bush, don't you? I could feel your hatred just ready your editorial. Feel sorry for you.

Thanks for writing.

First of all, and you might be surprised, but I don't hate Bush. I actually have tremendous pity for him and everyone else in his administration whose inherent weakness has allowed them to be entirely consumed by an ugly lust for power, money and control.

Am I angry? You bet. And as a concerned American, quite rightfully so, because these people are feeding their ugly lust with the blood of American soldiers and innocent Iraqis, and systematically shredding our Constitution at the same time. Their behavior is not just reprehensible. It's criminal, and they all need to be held accountable.

Secondly, the knee-jerk "you hate Bush" responses to criticism of our illegitimate president are getting pretty old. If you can legitimately refute what's being said, please feel free to do so. If you can't, you're just wasting your energy.

But thanks for writing anyway.
You should get a life. Your writing is terrible. Why on't you go and blog yourself.
