Goodbye and Thank You President Bush

Today is the last full day of the pres­i­dency of George W. Bush. Per­son­ally it has been a good 8 years with a few stumps in the road such as my cur­rent employ­ment sit­u­a­tion but it has been quite a time. I want to say thank you to a good and decent man who did despite the non­sense of peo­ple who don’t know bet­ter was a fine president.

I want to say that I am grate­ful for your actions. Dur­ing the recount mess at the start of your pres­i­dency you showed class and restraint. In the most try­ing of times you have remained steady and have not wavered due to polit­i­cal pres­sure nor for­got­ten your pri­mary duty to your coun­try. Even when you have failed such as with the attempts to rein in Fanny and Fred­die and reform Social Secu­rity your attempts to do what oth­ers have failed showed the polit­i­cal courage that you have.

As I would with any other man they’re have been things I have dis­agreed with. I object to the following

The Steel Tar­iffs
McCain Fein­gold
The Bailouts
The Amnesty Bill

These posi­tions that I dis­agree with. The early steel tar­iffs was polit­i­cal pay­back, it can be expected but was not wise. As for the oth­ers although i dis­agree with them all strongly I accept that your sup­port was on prin­ci­ple though I dis­agree with them strongly.

I thank you strongly for your deci­sions on Stem Cells, Judges Alito and Roberts, Abor­tion and Life, Kyoto and drilling. These things par­tic­u­larly on Alito and Roberts will mold the coun­try for years to come.

And most of all for the will­ing­ness to stand up and lead, first in the days after Sep­tem­ber 11th, next the 14th on a pile of rubble

On the speech on the 20th:

Finally in the lead-​up to Afghanistan and the long slow advance into Iraq. I remem­ber those days. Not with­stand­ing the lack of mem­ory by many of your foes I recall the long debate, the slow build up and the delib­er­a­tion. The going to the UN and to the con­gress. The quick vic­to­ries and most impor­tantly the long slow slog lead­ing to the surge and final vic­tory. When many even who sup­ported you were will­ing to lose for polit­i­cal rea­sons you were not. You promised to remem­ber, you promised to remem­ber your duty even if the coun­try for­got; and you did.

You were steady in the hard­est of time. It was a tough time for you and the stress of it shows on your face, but so does your resolve and your faith. You humbly acknowl­edged the prayers said for you and par­took of their strength. Most of all you have kept our coun­try in gen­eral and my chil­dren in par­tic­u­lar safe. For some that is a debt they refuse to acknowl­edge for myself it is a debt I can never repay.

Thank you so much. May God bless you in your retire­ment as he has blessed us by your work.

Update: Appar­ently the Dali Lama likes him too, another Kry­ten head explod­ing moment, but for the left this time.

Today is the last full day of the presidency of George W. Bush. Personally it has been a good 8 years with a few stumps in the road such as my current employment situation but it has been quite a time. I want to say thank you to a good and decent man who did despite the nonsense of people who don’t know better was a fine president.

I want to say that I am grateful for your actions. During the recount mess at the start of your presidency you showed class and restraint. In the most trying of times you have remained steady and have not wavered due to political pressure nor forgotten your primary duty to your country. Even when you have failed such as with the attempts to rein in Fanny and Freddie and reform Social Security your attempts to do what others have failed showed the political courage that you have.

As I would with any other man they’re have been things I have disagreed with. I object to the following

The Steel Tariffs
McCain Feingold
The Bailouts
The Amnesty Bill

These positions that I disagree with. The early steel tariffs was political payback, it can be expected but was not wise. As for the others although i disagree with them all strongly I accept that your support was on principle though I disagree with them strongly.

I thank you strongly for your decisions on Stem Cells, Judges Alito and Roberts, Abortion and Life, Kyoto and drilling. These things particularly on Alito and Roberts will mold the country for years to come.

And most of all for the willingness to stand up and lead, first in the days after September 11th, next the 14th on a pile of rubble

On the speech on the 20th:

Finally in the lead-up to Afghanistan and the long slow advance into Iraq. I remember those days. Not withstanding the lack of memory by many of your foes I recall the long debate, the slow build up and the deliberation. The going to the UN and to the congress. The quick victories and most importantly the long slow slog leading to the surge and final victory. When many even who supported you were willing to lose for political reasons you were not. You promised to remember, you promised to remember your duty even if the country forgot; and you did.

You were steady in the hardest of time. It was a tough time for you and the stress of it shows on your face, but so does your resolve and your faith. You humbly acknowledged the prayers said for you and partook of their strength. Most of all you have kept our country in general and my children in particular safe. For some that is a debt they refuse to acknowledge for myself it is a debt I can never repay.

Thank you so much. May God bless you in your retirement as he has blessed us by your work.
