I came across this recently and it took me a bit to track down the original document. It seems that it may only be available in pdf? Here is the PDF I found of the original. So that it might get wider exposure, I asked a trusted ACM volunteer to transcribe it for me. I think the insight into the mind of certain folks gained from reading it is valuable. It’s also more evidence that this way of thinking didn’t die with the Nazis.

Dear President-To-Be Clinton,
Some years ago another Southern Governor, when asked about the possibilities for prison reform, supposedly said something to the effect of, “Well, I don’t think we’re going to get very far until we get a better class of prisoner.”
Well, I don’t think you are going to get very far in reforming the country until we have a better educated, healthier, wealthier population.
Face it; you know that anything that even resembles the programs of Democratic Presidents in the past is going to make you a one term President. Reagan spent all our money on bombs and even if there were money for programs such as pre-natal health care, job training and day care centers, it would be years before we would see and dramatic results. And, as anyone who follows education can see, more money doesn’t necessarily translate into better educated kids. [More...]

If it weren’t for the nominations of two Supreme Court justices who will rule by the letter of the law (we hope… we might wonder if there have been some exceptions now) I would consider my votes for the Republicans the last 8 years an utter, and total, waste. As in, if I had voted for a pile of excrement that would have been more worthwhile, as excrement can at least be used as fertilizer. While I shudder to think what life would be like since 2000 if Al Gore or John Kerry were the president, the salient point is that in the end, under Republican control, there was hardly any noticeable difference. Maybe I amend my statement somewhat- I am glad that Bush was at the helm on 9-11 and my only regrets concerning Afghanistan and Iraq is that we didn’t really fight to win there, either. But I digress.
The point is that I don’t frankly care what you say or do at this point, Republicans. I don’t believe you. I

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.
