Is Politics Merely Personal?

That's the impression I get from websites like this.

The combined King-George content proves beyond all doubt that the Bush 43
White House is immoral, corrupt, incompetent, uncaring and dishonest -- as
shown by the following exaggerations, deceptions and outright lies:

Dub-ya's bogus bio
So-called Iraqi WMDs
"Immediate" threats
Yellow-cake uranium
Aluminum tubes
Mobile biological weapons labs
Ties to Al Qaeda
A 9/11 connection
The Valerie Plame/CIA leak case
Secret overseas prisons
Warrantless wiretaps of United States citizens
Phony Al Qaeda plots
False claims that the America is safer now from terrorism than before 9/11
Concealing the real cost of Gulf War 2
Understating Iraqi civilian casualties
Embellishing U.S. successes in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Misrepresenting the only wartime tax cut in American history
Economically betraying senior citizens, the middle class and working poor
Downplaying global warming
Claiming wounded GIs got the best treatment possible at Walter Reed
Preventing the coffins of returning GIs from beng seen by the public

As I read, I'm interested (despite being one of those "neocons" who worked to get the country in to Iraq). I look for more information in different windows about the military products presented, and create some emails to Congress about them. I want success, and part of it has to be correct equipment. The harder part, of course, is ignoring the silliness, but it can be done. I encourage you to read for yourself, if you have the time.

But finally, I think I'm in agreement with this characterization. Just as I don't think Abraham Lincoln was a bloodthirsty tyrant calling for the destruction of soldiers for his personal pleasure, I don't think Bush is the focus of evil in the world. I'd rather spend time on those whose goal is to kill and subjugate people like Hugh Scott.
