For those on DU expressing distaste for those criticizing Bush for politicizing VT

I remind you of what the GOP did to the Democrats regarding Paul Wellstone's Memorial. I remind you about the nastiness of their comments when JFK Jr. died.

I believe that it has never served us well as a political party to "be above the fray". We need to call these bastards out for their behavior immediately with NO hesitation.
Bush and only Bush has politicized this tragedy , just as he did 9-11. This admin will NEVER stop politicizing national tragedies for their own benefit.

I believe we have an obligation to point out the inappropriateness and disgusting self serving that Bush co is doing.Silence in this case is read as approbation.
Thank you to all on DU who have spoken out about this travesty.

It is obscene that this man who has sanctioned mass murder should be crying crocodile tears about the deaths of innocents. It is disgusting that this war monger who has not attended a single military funeral should be depicted by the MSM as the "Chief Consoler" and being given credit for "uniting the nation".

It is time for us to take off our white gloves and "party manners". No one respects us for this gentlemanly behavior.We are viewed as "weak" for not responding.It is time for us to get down in the mud and speak out.

Bush is a monster and a hypocrite who for reasons too many to mention had no proper place at that VT Convocation. His presence was an insult to VT. the students and the mourners.His presence was an insult to this nation.
