Spending Capital on Bush's Base

My letter to Marianne Williams and The Detroit News, which published an article by Marianne on Saturday, September 10, 2005, Faith and Policy, "People sense president's soulless sensibility"

Dear Ms. Williams, Editor The Detroit News,

Marianne Williamson has written a short but insightful piece "People sense president's soulless sensibility" but she makes one statement which shows she has failed to realise what the Bush Government is all about!

Marianne wrote: "The president prides himself on running the government like a well-run business. That, of course, makes him the chief executive. And if the government failed, then he failed."

The Bush government has not ever been and is not for the American people.

It is a government for his "base".

The "bottom line" of base is presently doing extremely well with the invasion and occupation of Iraq, Hurricane Katrina, the tax cuts, the appointment of unqualified cronies at all levels of his malAdministration, so, by their perception, the Bush government "has not failed."

Democracy, freedom, the American Constitution, the American people, the minorities, the Afghani people, the Iraqis, the citizens of New Orleans, and the entire world may be crushed under their heel, but so long as Bush's base has not suffered any of the consequences, as was so eloquently put by Barbara Bush in her comment about those in the Houston Astrodome, the Bush government is a huge success.

Mrs. Bush, after touring the Astrodome complex in Houston on Monday, said: "What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this is working very well for them." "Sarcasm OFF"

Yours sincerely

Jacob Matthan
