Liberals Apologize to Bush? Inconceivable!

When's the last time you heard a dyed-in-the-wool liberal compliment (much less apologize to) George W. Bush? Yeah, me neither. That's why I'm linking to this remarkable post on Hillbuzz (via Jessica's Well) the writers of which seem to have finally realized that Hope and Change aren't exactly living up to the hype.

I didn't agree with all of W's policies, but I never doubted for a second that he had the best interests of America in mind in every decision he made, and his ability to ignore attacks on his character while focusing on what was truly important is something that sets leaders apart from politicians.

I hope you'll read the above-linked post, and while you're there, scroll down through some of the comments, as there's additional wisdom to be found. Here's one example:
When we start looking at the human beings running for office and not the party in front of their names, we get as close to the Founding Fathers' ideal of this country as possible. And we scare the hell out of the two parties trying to divide and conquer.

Very sincere and a tribute to free thinking people. I did pass their link along to one of the Bush's close friends, whose email address I have. Thanks..

Eric, perhaps I'm one of the exceptions to the rule ... but, nonetheless ... I'm "a dyed-in-the-wool liberal" who has complimented the former President. And I still do.

But that being said, I make no apologies for my criticism of the man in regards to some aspects of administration as President.

I think both my appreciation and my criticism are/were merited. He remains, as I said in a previous post on my blog, someone who was welcome to my home for dinner - but not to my vote for President.
