Somebody accused me once of "hating" George W. Bush. I corrected the person, explaining that I don't "hate" anybody. Sure, I believe Bush to be the worst president we've ever had, but that statement is based on facts, not emotion. I'm perfectly capable of pointing out the President's flaws, substantiated by things like The Downing Street Memo, his abuse of signing statements, and I sure do agree with Bruce Fein that Bush should be impeached.
But "hate?" Hmmmm...I'm trying to think of something or someone I hate. I'll have to get back to you on that one.
Yet there's our Congressman, explaining to a group of students that his political party is in trouble, in part, because "everybody hates George Bush."
Republicans like Pete Sessions who "hate" George Bush must be the opposite from me--although they're blinded by "intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury," they just can't bring themselves to vote against his wishes or use their constitutional authority to kick him out of office. Interesting.
Okay, let's see...things I hate. I've got one! Fire ants. Hate 'em.
