There's a Shocker

Lorie Byrd's latest article discusses the bizarre fact that Democrats think that people should support a Democratic President.
After eight years of savaging George W. Bush, those on the left now believe that supporting the President is good for the country. Supporting the new President, that is.
In a sense this is totally normal; Democrats favor Democratic Presidents who will govern the way we think we should be governed.

The larger context though is that liberals believe that the Bush administration was both staggeringly incompetent and criminal. It's not that we are opposed to business solutions to problems or a war first approach to fighting terrorism. We are of course, but that's not enough to buy the level of opposition. It's that, in our opinion, the Bush administration failed the American people and committed illegal acts.
