Letter about Bush and Robertson

I am wondering why Tony McConnell (letter to editor August 1) is so overjoyed about George Bush being President. It's been proven that he wasn't even elected President, but with the help of Jeb Bush and Kathleen Harris, stole the 2000 election in Florida and got away with it.

Has anyone been able to figure out why Bush was so anxious to go to war with Iraq that he used false information to declare war? Could there be a profit lurking in the aftermath of war? Why didn't Bush aggressively pursue the capture and destruction of Bin Laden and his regime for their attack on our country? This should have been his number one priority. Are we going to wait for a repeat of 9/11 to go after that animal again?

I abhor Saddam Hussein and his savage methods of control, but why are we avenging the citizens of Iraq when we haven't avenged Bin Laden's attempt to destroy our country. I too am proud of the Americans who are serving our country, still fighting in a war that Bush claims is over. But sadly, we are losing more American lives in this very active war than we did during what Bush called wartime. We should have captured and destroyed Hussein and his sons before claiming the war was over, and it would have been. We wouldn't be experiencing the horrible losses that we are now.

I also can't grasp Tony's worship of self-serving evangelists like Pat Robertson. Of course, Robertson would be involved in some charity work to take attention away from his own accumulation of wealth, but what percentage of his personal wealth is he contributing? Or is the use of his name in connection charitable enough? Anyone can dress in a suit and scream through a bullhorn in the name of Jesus, but does that prove one to be a Christian? It's difficult to take Robertson seriously, when he spouts quotes like "The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women, it's about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians (Washington Post); "America is polluting the whole world" (the 700 Club); "A condition like this (homosexuality) will bring about the destruction of our nation, it'll bring about terrorist bombs, earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor" (Gay Day, Disney World); "There will never be world peace until God's house and God's peopl .....
