Reviews for A Letter To President Bush
carmice3 chapter 1 . 1/17/2004
Well I pretty much agree with everything. You could have benefited from stating your quarrel, rather than being so emotional about it. Emotional letters tend not to be taken seriously.
Did you send this? If so you probably made some watch list. The next time you fly you can expect to be the lucky recipient of a 'random' luggage search. Yay for the Patriot Act!
J.Moser chapter 1 . 12/18/2003
Very well written! What a powerful letter! I decided to add a little something that a CountessErzsebet has been posting all over this website on review pages. I wish this Republican craze would end and a Democrat would win the upcoming election. But enough with that, now let's take the time to read George W. Bush's resume.
EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE

LAW ENFORCEMENT: I was arrested in Kennebunkport,
Maine in 1976 for

guilty, paid a fine, and had
my driver's license suspended for 30 days. My Texas
driving record has
been "lost" and is not available.

went AWOL. I refused
to take a drug test or answer any questions about my
drug use. By joining
the Texas Air National Guard, I was able to avoid
combat duty in Vietnam.

cheerleader.

PAST WORK EXPERIENCE:

I ran for U.S. Congress and lost.

I began my career in the oil business in Midland,
Texas in 1975. I bought
an
oil company, but couldn't find any oil in Texas. The
company went bankrupt
shortly after I sold all my stock.

I bought the Texas Rangers baseball team in a
sweetheart deal that took
land using taxpayer money.

With the help of my father and our right-wing
friends in the oil industry
(including Enron CEO Ken Lay), I was elected
Governor of Texas.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS GOVERNOR:

I changed Texas pollution laws to favor power and
oil companies, making
Texas the most polluted state in the Union.

During my tenure, Houston replaced Los Angeles as
the most smog-ridden
city in America.

I cut taxes and bankrupted the Texas treasury to the
tune of billions in
borrowed money.

I set the record for the most executions by any
Governor in American
history.

With the help of my brother, the Governor of
Florida, and my father's
appointments to the Supreme Court, I became
President after losing by
over 500,0 votes.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS PRESIDENT:

I invaded and occupied two countries at a continuing
cost of over one
billion dollars per week.

I spent the U.S. surplus and effectively bankrupted
the U.S. Treasury.

I shattered the record for the largest annual
deficit in U.S. history.

I set an economic record for most private
bankruptcies filed in any
12-month period.

I set the all-time record for the biggest drop in
the history of the U.S.
stock market.

I am the first president in U.S. history to enter
office with a criminal
record.

I set the the all-time record for most days on
vacation in any one year
period.

After taking-off the entire month of August, I
presided over the worst
security failure in U. .

I am supporting development of a nuclear "Tactical
Bunker Buster," a WMD.

In my State Of The Union Address, I lied about our
reasons for attacking
Iraq, then blamed the lies on our British friends.

I set the record for most campaign fund-raising
trips by a U.S. president.

In my first year in office over 2-million Americans
lost their jobs and
that trend continues every month.

12-month period.

I appointed more convicted criminals to
administration than any president
in U.S. history.

I set the record for least amount of press
conferences than any president
since the advent of television.

history and refused to
intervene when corruption involving the oil industry
was revealed.

history.

support a cut in duty
benefits for active duty troops and their families

worldwide to simultaneously
protest me in public venues (15 million people)
shattering the record for
protest against any person in the history of
mankind.

I've broken more international treaties than any
president in U.S.
history.

I'm proud that the members of my cabinet are the
richest of any
administration in U.S. history. My "poorest
millionaire," Condoleeza Rice,
has a Chevron oil tanker named after her.

I am the first president in U.S. history to order an
unprovoked,
pre-emptive attack and the military occupation of a

and
the world community.

private jets and corporate
attorneys to assure my success with the U.S. Supreme
Court during my
election decision. I have
protected my friends at Enron and Halliburton
against investigation or
prosecution. More time and money was spent
investigating the Monica
Lewinsky affair than has been spent investigating
one of the biggest
corporate ripoffs in history.

I garnered the most sympathy for the U.S. after the
World Trade Center
attacks and less than a year later made the U.S. the

the world, the largest failure of diplomacy in world

Grieve chapter 1 . 12/14/2003
Very true. This makes a really strong statement, and it's a good one.
bobbysinblack chapter 1 . 12/1/2003
well done! but its not only britain and america that is occupying iraq..australia is too, and i live here! john howard is a total kiss arse and i am even more ashamed of him than i usually am for being bush's bitch...anyway, i really liked the way you wrote it, you sounded really arrogant! which i loved!
Ca chapter 1 . 8/11/2003
yes, well done.
Tiefling chapter 1 . 7/26/2003
Saying you are 'well educated' and 'thought provoking' comes across as a boast about your intelligence, which is kind of inviting people to shoot you down in flames. I won't flame you, I just thought it sounded a touch arrogant.

I sympathise with your views on the war. Your letter was very well written.

It's a little light on sources, though.
Imaginary Player chapter 1 . 7/24/2003
Calling someone "stupid" is so first-grade...

Anyway, as for this essay, I liked it very much; you convey your opinions (through fact, no doubt) well, and you get your point across without being aggressive or abusive. _
HNMN Commander for the Right chapter 1 . 7/24/2003
you said freethinkers are dangerous...were you talking about yourself? You're way to stupid to be dangerous.
Gaurdian of the Forest chapter 1 . 7/24/2003
you were very passionate. did you really send this letter to the president? Because I highly doubt he would take anything you said seriously if you smacked him over the head for being a dumb Republican. Unfortunately, when people are insulted, they turn a deaf ear. I would, too. I liked the letter, it was, as I said, passionate, and you provided a lot of good evidence. I thought you were too arrogant at times, and very insulting near the end, but, whatever you believe will get through to the man... Also, Dwight D Eisenhower ran his presidency in a style known as the "Hidden Hand Presidency." Nobody really knew what went on behind that closed curtain. Many people were not comfortable with this style of governing. As George Santayana said, "If we do not learn our history, we are condemned to repeat it."
James Jago chapter 1 . 7/24/2003
Yeah!

And just when does the US administration plan on starting the job of sorting out the mess made by the USAF... in AFGHANISTAN? You blew it up in the cause of liberating the people of both countries, you give them a hand putting it back together. Germany was included in the Marshall Plan (I'll ignore the self-serving agenda behind that in view of the good it did), so why not take the same spirit with Iraq?
teena chapter 1 . 7/23/2003
Ok, well no offence for completly disagreeing with your essay, but I am exactly the opposite of you, and I am also seventeen and consider myself rather well-educated and would like to think that I am well up to speed with what's going on. I also am on the varsity debate team at my high school, but I am also very tired tonight and have to got to work in less than six hours so I will keep this short. . .

The United States and Iraq do not have a very friendly relationship, nor have we had one for a very long time. And I beleive President Bush had his reasons for searching in Iraq for WMD and the first one would be the point I just made.

Also, searching for weapons was not the only objective in our war with Iraq, it was also to rid out the clear threat Saddam Housein. As well as a considerable amount more...which you can find a

What can I say...I just don't understand democrats?
lili brik chapter 1 . 7/22/2003
I hope you sent this to him and he actually took the time to read it...the guy and all his buddies make me sick, mostly for all the reasons mentioned here. Keep it up.
tofujunky chapter 1 . 7/22/2003
You Go Boy!

I loved it.
iridium chapter 1 . 7/22/2003
I agree with everything you've said. I was outraged when I heard about how the government cobbled together fake evidence about Iraq's nonexistent weapons. Did you actually send this letter?
