A note on my preferences
This is boring, but I’ve got to say this. My dislike for Bush is mostly personal. I just can’t stand the man. As for Bushite policies, my skepticism is essentially right-wing. The war in Iraq, I fear, is deepening and broadening a chasm in the heart of the West, and damaging the already troubled Western civilization. I am not a geopolitical or cultural relativist: the West must survive, and the Middle East can go hang. Similarly, Bush’s inaction on the immigration front… but that’s a strictly internal affair.
Incidentally, I am an elitist: every nation’s elites have its mission and duties, among them to educate and lead the masses, and share in their ordeal in times of trouble (e.g., in wartime). But to openly despise the commoners, to wish them away — what kind of elite behavior is this?
