I was reading the newspaper one evening in mid ’02 and saw that W. had decided to turn back a number of environmental regulations. That was going backwards in my mind, big time. I mean, think about it. We had just transitioned to the new century (millennium) and he was rolling back policies that had been put in place to keep corporations from polluting.
What a legacy to leave our children. How regular citizens could get behind a guy so in league with Big Business was mystifying to me. There is a book that came out a few years ago that deals with the issue of people voting against their own economic interests. It’s called "What’s The Matter With Kansas". This was but the first of many things that caused me to lose faith in him. So while many have been tired of him for a couple years, I’ve been resentful of him for more than 6! Needless to say, my Bush fatigue is almost beyond comprehension.
