The Torture President
Mr. Bush has vetoed legislation that would have outlawed "waterboarding" as torture. Even Presidential candidate John McCain, who was a POW, says that waterboarding IS torture, and he opposes it. Mr. McCain's opinion on this issue I respect.
That makes Bush, our draft-dodger in office, our "torture President." It is one more example why America's reputation is so low worldwide. The country that is supposed to stand for justice and fairness is now the country that condones torture.
I wish Bush would just quit torturing us and go away, far, far away. The above photo of a bumper sticker says it all:
"Jan 20, 2009: End of an Error." That's when the new President takes office. Amen.
