I stumbled upon this essay by a man who apparently is gay and a Democrat giving tribute to President Bush. That was enough to intrigue me. While obviously I disagree on a number of points I found the article as welcome proof that one can find decent people across the spectrum. If only there were more of them we could have a conversation worth having.
Naturally, too, while agreeing with the author that Bush ‘failed’ in certain areas, he and I would disagree on which. But we do have strong agreement about where Bush succeeded.
Without further ado, here is the article:
Goodbye and thank you, George W. Bush. You did the very best that you could, and we are grateful for your service.
