The Theoretical Presidency

In theory, Bush was going to be a uniter. In reality, he has divided this nation more bitterly than ever. In theory, the Bush tax cut was supposed to help the economy. In reality, it has crippled our nation with record deficits. In theory, the Iraqis would greet us with flowers. In reality, our soldiers were greeted with RPG’s. In theory, the administration could be trusted to observe human rights in it’s secret prisons. In reality, they have overseen some of the worst violations of human rights in US history. To some, George Bush may have sounded like a good president in theory. In reality, it’s time for John Kerry.
