This man is not good for America

Please watch this video.

I have a lot of reasons why I do not believe George W. Bush deserves another 4 years as president. I think that even if you thought that he was right in cutting taxes the way he has, and even if you believe that going to war with Iraq was the right thing to do, I do not understand how one can argue his administration has been successful applying these decisions. The tax cuts did not create one single job, and the war has left Iraq in a very dangerous situation.

However...If you still feel that George W. Bush can be a strong leader for our country, and a respected representative of our people, this video may hopefully change your mind.

Please do not take this as a personal partisan attack on the President. I do not to mean to use this as a cheap shot, but to point out another important reason why I am not confident he can run our country successfully.

I disagree with his policies, but more importantly I disagree with him. He is not somebody I trust. He is not somebody who acts in the best interests of this nation. He is not somebody I want people to think of when they think of the United States. Most importantly, he is not somebody who understands the gravity of the situation our soldiers and our country are in right now. Ask yourself this question: Can we do better than this?

The answer is we must. Can you picture the President acting like this when trying to speak with a foreign leader? Can you picture him acting like this if there is another catastrophic attack the US? Can you picture him acting like this when talking to our troops? This is a pre-recorded message to the Iraqi Survey Group. And this is the best he can do. This is not good.

Please watch this video.

There was a time in this country, before I was born, when many Democrats agreed with the principles of Jimmy Carter, but did not feel he was the right man to lead our country in a time of paranoia and the threat of imminent war. It is time for Republicans to realize the same is true with George W. Bush. He does not have what it takes to be President.

We can do better.
