Coward in Crawford
George Bush, viewed by some as the world's most powerful man, is much like the Lion in the Wizard of Oz. He has a vociferous roar, but is in reality a coward. He has taken off work for his record setting vacation, and either refuses, or is afraid to meet with a lowly grief stricken mom, Cindy Sheehan. Regardless of the politics on either side, I think Ms. Sheehan has earned the right for a brief moment of Mr. Bush's precious vacation time. Does a man who orders American sons and daughters to die in a dubious war have any responsibility to face the consequences of his choices?
Yes. I say such a man has such a responsibility. But, a coward will run from that responsibility, and all responsibility. A coward is afraid to admit even one mistake. A coward fears the truth, and repeates over and over the same canard until even he believes it is truth.
Mr. Bush has a history of avoiding responsibility, dating back to his national guard days. When faced with the likely possibility of serving in a real war, Mr. Bush like so many others of his day, opted to avoid responsibility then. He now shirks the responsibility and consequences of his current war choices by avoiding the Cindy Sheehan's of today. Shame on you Mr. Bush. Perhaps you should just stay on vacation.
