Another Gem

Ace has a thread about Bush Derangement Admissions at DU. I think I see this differently:

After I actually took the trouble to inform myself about politics a couple years ago, and learned the true extent of the damage Bush has done to this country, I have a constant boiling rage inside me. Absolutely constant. Never ceases, though sometimes I can get it down to a simmer so I can go out in public and hang out with friends without doing something stupid. On top of the anger is a generous dose of fear and anxiety, coming directly from the Bush administration’s march to fascism.

I am a little more sympathetic to this guy, in that I think the only real difference between him and me is perspective.  Look closely at what he wrote:  “After I actually took the trouble to inform myself about politics a couple years ago…”  Bush is the only president this guy has actually paid attention to.  He didn’t pay attention to Clinton, or Bush 41, or Reagan, or Carter, or anyone.  See, he thinks that this is something new.  Maybe if we do end up with Hillary in office, people like him will realize how stupid it was to focus on Bush when they are all like this.
