Bush and Kerry are at it again

As you have probably heard, John Kerry recently attempted to make a joke about lack of education (Bush’s lack of education about going into the Iraq War) and being stuck in Iraq (Bush’s inability to leave the war-torn country). George W. Bush pounced on the opportunity to make John Kerry appear to be insulting veterans. Why in the world would John Kerry say that soldiers are uneducated? John Kerry is a college-educated veteran. It is so clear to me that his words have been deliberately misconstrued. Bush knows that America has lost faith in and patience with his failing policies, and this is a last ditch effort to gain some points before the election.

Every time one politician demands that another politician apologize for a remark, it just angers me towards the first politician. Bush demanding that Kerry apologize is ridiculous. Has he gone through life demanding an apology every time someone hurts his feelings? He’s the president – he tries to appear tough and solid, but then he insists that people say “I’m sorry” for mere words. Now I’m angry with John Kerry for caving to him and actually apologizing!

Here’s an idea: rather than John Kerry apologizing for a single sentence that may have been mischaracterized, perhaps George W. Bush should apologize to the troops for sending them to Iraq on false pretenses. He should apologize to the families of the 2,000 deceased veterans and to the families of the tens of thousands of Iraqis who have died as a result of his decision. Let’s apologize when it’s truly appropriate.
