Dopey WNJ Letter of the Week

Wilmington's John Dente covers all the bases in his 2006-ish rant against that evil of evils, George W. Bush:

One might have more success in reanimating the dead as opposed to rehabilitating the younger Bush’s reputation as the worst president in the history of the United States, one who fought unnecessary and illegal wars, whose economic policies combined with his military misadventures to cause [sic] financial collapse, and who disgraced and made a hypocrisy of the American concepts of morality and jurisprudence with his creation of the surveillance state, torture, and total disregard for the law.

Man, if I didn't know better, I'd swear John was talking about Boss Obama! Dente's real beef is with former Defense Secretary Bob Gates' book Duty, and how Boss Obama and "Plugs Biden" don't come off so well in the Secretary's opinion. As noted, it's as if Dente was plucked straight from an anti-war demonstration of the mid-2000s; let's see, we got "unnecessary" and "illegal war," "hypocrisy," "surveillance state," "torture," "total disregard for the law," used war "only to enrich themselves," "gun-toting," "Bible-banging," "lunatics," "bigots," and finally, "Teapublican Party."

But ... what about Obama and his continuation of the [evil] Bush policies? "... if they are to be condemned at all, it is for the fact that Obama and Biden continued, and even expanded, the disastrous policies of Mr. Bush," Dente says. Now let that sink in for a moment. After his epic rant about Mr. Bush, all we get about his successor and his not-only continuation, but expansion, of Bush-era policies is a lame "If they are to be condemned at all??

You can argue about the rightness of Bush's invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq 'till the cows come home, but at least Bush was committed to it. If Boss Obama really didn't believe in the Afghanistan mission (the "good war," as he called it), then why commit more troops to it? If Bush's economic policies were detrimental, what the hell can one dub Boss Obama's? "Catastrophic?" "Cataclysmic?" Regarding Bush's surveillance state, at least GW only snooped on foreign calls where one party was located overseas. Obama is snooping on everyone, including allied leaders. And lastly, "total disregard for the law?"

OK, I'm done laughing now. See 'ya.

Dente seems to have all the progressive cliches and buzzwords down pat. In other words,he doesn't say anything original and sounds like your average lunatic anti-war protestor from the mid-2000s.
