Letter: Critics of Bush were far worseI was deeply moved by The Forum’s stirring defense of President Barack Obama against his many critics. Thank you for the way you constantly defended President George W. Bush against the onslaught of unfair criticism he faced.
The worst thing the Democrats did to President Bush was characterize him as someone who knew about the terrorist attacks in advance. At a time when we as a nation needed to pull together, the Democrats chose a terrible smear campaign designed to do great damage.
The Obama critics may call our president a liberal, a socialist or even a Hitler. But whatever the Obama critics do, it will never be as bad as what Democrats did to President Bush.
