Roger, I could not have said it better.

Roger Olsen has a very good point here and he says it in a way that puts things into perspective. Please read on.

Bush aversion
Isn't it interesting that liberals thought ending subjugation of women worldwide was a worthwhile goal, until Bush made it happen in Afghanistan and Iraq? That black, Latin and other minority voices in high government and judicial offices was a noble endeavor, until Bush made it the norm? That Social Security was in crisis, until Bush stepped on that "third rail" and attempted to provide actual long-term benefits?
That "God" and "worldwide liberty" were just fine in the inaugural addresses of FDR, Truman and JFK, but Bush's mention deserves scrutiny and doubt. And that Bush's ambitious fulfillment of campaign promises is denigrated as hubris. Any wonder the liberal left has moved the Democrats out of favor, out of touch and out of office?
