Dubya has yet again ruined my fucking day, and this time it had nothing to do with the news. I can't wait until he is gone, gone, gone. BTW...start campaigning against Jeb Bush now. *shiver*
I have a question to ask, though. Why is it that some people assume that, just because I am American that I have something to do with George W. Bush's behavior, or that I am somehow responsible for the Iraq war?
I didn't vote for him. I protested him during both elections...repeatedly. I organized anti-Bush campaigns. I wrote letters to the newspaper, to my U.S. Representatives in support of impeachment. I affixed "No W" stickers any and everywhere within reach. I marched in protest of the war in Iraq. I mean honestly, I did what I could.
Yet again, though, I have come face to face with abuse during travel. I am really, extremely tired of having to fend off these belligerent jerks who want to blame me for everything that has occurred in Iraq, and in the economy, and foreign policy, and insulting Canada during 9/11, and everything else that I am powerless to change. Why do these people assume that I call the shots given only the simple fact that I speak with an American accent?
With all of this criticism, I honestly want to know what people expect the 50% of Americans who DID NOT vote for Bush, or DO NOT support the war in Iraq to do about him? He will be gone soon enough, but the question stands. What could we have done differently?
