Honor, duty, integrity: where did it go?

The Treatment of Bush Has Been a DisgraceWhat must our enemies be thinking? by J.S. Shapiro (Wall Street Journal opinion)

The treatment President Bush has received from this country is nothing less than a disgrace. The attacks launched against him have been cruel and slanderous, proving to the world what little character and resolve we have. The president is not to blame for all these problems. He never lost faith in America or her people, and has tried his hardest to continue leading our nation during a very difficult time.

Our failure to stand by the one person who continued to stand by us has not gone unnoticed by our enemies. It has shown to the world how disloyal we can be when our president needed loyalty — a shameful display of arrogance and weakness that will haunt this nation long after Mr. Bush has left the White House.

“proving to the world what little character and resolve we have … has not gone unnoticed by our enemies … has shown to the world how disloyal we can be”

Those who are responsible for this state of affairs are now at the point. The rest of us stood by like in that ol’ western on TV where the sheriff had to face down the bad guys all by himself. It should be interesting. This isn’t a movie.
