President Bush has no Shame Ford Eulogy the Last Disrespect

I watched today as the current President Bush attempted to justify in a poorly covered unspoken analogy between Ford's Decision to pardon Nixon and his current insistence to stay in Iraq in spite of all advice to the contrary. I have never seen anything like this in my life. That somehow because Ford happened to be right in deciding in to Pardon Nixon in attempt to move the country on and contrary to the wishes of the public that he is right in continuing to dig us deeper in Iraq. The simple fact is in the end Ford was hurt no one but himself by doing this, and in the end it probably was best for the country. In comparison what Bush is doing effects hundreds of thousands of troops and America as a whole. Let not forget the other major difference is Ford did not make the mess he was only trying to fix what he was given. Bush takes no personal risk by doing what he is doing. Bush beyond this has no dishonored the memory of President Ford who stated he disagreed with this war and Bush truly has no shame and simply only cares about himself, not America and not the Fords. He seems to be willing to use any means to justify his actions, and not even the funeral in the memory of a fmr president will stop it. You could even see the disgust in Laura Bush's expression when he did it. This man as I stated simply has no shame, and I hope everyone can see that now.


  • I believe Bush's abuse of presidential signing statements is wrong, but is not a "high crime or misdemeanor" worthy of impeachment. When we start talking that way, there's a tendency to circle the wagons and people get defensive. Although I agree with everything you say about this abuse, I think the best course is to work with Rs and try to build coalitions to get things done where we can.
