Bush/Cheney need to grow up
After reading several articles surrounding this topic, I felt compelled to write about it today. The issue concerning me is Bush, and Cheney's recent bout of remarks centered around attacking their critics, to which I say, grow up. In this Cheney article that I found, Cheney claimed that democrats were criticizing the Iraq war to gain political favor, and because of memory loss. Has he ever thought for one moment that critics of the war in Iraq have a point, and a God-given right to make their feelings known? Aside from the thousands of American soldiers that have given their lives to fight this on-going war, billions of dollars of the United State's tax payers' money is being used to finance it, and I would be very worried, and alarmed if citizens in opposition just rolled over and played dead. We should have some voice in where our hard earned money is being thrown, and personally, Iraq's killing field isn't getting my vote. Why is it that the top leaders of our country are so opposed to people of all backgrounds, and philosophies having some type of feeling? This isn't an issue of right, or left wing views, this is a humanitarian, and economic issue, and Bush and Cheney need to understand that people have valid, genuine concerns, not just some hidden political agenda to pursue.
