Those against Bush hurting our nationWas Ed trying to be funny or is he just showing that he has the mind of child? I added the bold above, but it stands out all by itself. I don't think you are compassionate Mr. Gruener, I think you are a fool. You are a fool if you believe in fairy tales, and you are a fool if you believe in the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, and Santa Claus. Oh, the fairy tale I think you believe in is the validity of this War and your "love it or leave it" attitude. I think your mindset is what is straight out of the 1960's. I think your stubborn mindset, also held by military leadership, is what lost the war in Vietnam. I really find it horrid that you think anyone should "profit" from a war.
President Bush couldn't have made it any clearer at the get-go. "Either you're with us, or you're against us." What part of that don't you understand?
To the writer of the letter "Bush a divider, not a unifier" (Dec. 14): People that think like you are also the kind of people that caused this great country to lose the war in Vietnam. back in the '60s and '70s. You just feed the enemy.
I don't like to argue with anyone about war because it is true - no one really wins after you consider all the lives lost. But if you don't contribute to it, you have no right to profit from it.
By the way, I believe in the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy and even Santa Claus. If this makes me a compassionate conservative, so be it.

I really hope you were trying to be a satire on conservatives who are ignorant (not all of the them are - cough, cough), but I fear that your letter was bona fide, grade A real. If this is who makes up a die-hard Bush supporter, I really don't get how people with half a mind flock to him like lemmings.
