Dear President George W Bush,
I want to take the opportunity, while I have the ability, to let you know what I think about you. I hope that you read this message.
I think that you are a wonderful man. My discernment tells me that you are a man who loves God with your whole being. I’ve heard rumors that you wake up daily way before I do to pray.
No matter what the media says, you are a wonderful President. I am proud to admit that I voted for you. Twice.
I know that you had our country’s best interest at heart when you decided to wage war on Iraq. I am proud of my friends who are serving in Iraq. I understand that they chose to serve in the military…they may have signed up with the idea that they were having college paid for or getting an extra income, but they signed up for the various branches of the military to protect our country and people all over the world. I, for one, am thankful that Saddam Hussein is no longer on earth to torture people. I believe that the world is a safer place now that he is wherever he may be.
I know that you are not personally responsible for the downfall of our economy.
Though history books may say differently, I think that you are one of the best presidents in the history of America. You fought for American ideals…freedom & democracy. Unfortunately for you and me, Islam is not a faith like Christianity. They believe that people who do not believe that Allah is god deserve death.
President Geoge W Bush, thank you for your service to the United States of America. It is my prayer that one day I will have the opportunity to meet you and Laura. I hope that one day I know you. Frankly, you are the first president of the US that I personally voted for, prayed for and supported. Hopefully you will not be the last.
Enjoy some down time. Know that at least one American is proud of voting for you. Two times.
With the warmest of regards,
PS…if you read this, please comment. I would be willing to travel to to TX (a state I love, by the way) to meet you. I’ll even buy us dinner. Do you like Chick Fil A? That’s my budget right now 🙂

Please send that letter to everyone you know.
What level of accountability does a president have for what occurs while he is in office? Would you have wanted him to continue being president for the next 4 years (if term limits were not in place)? What was Bush’s greatest accomplishment during his presidency? He promised that he would have made progress with the aborion issue, but it appears we are in the same place as we were 8 years ago. Are you satisfied with his performance on the abortion issue during his presidency?
Have a good night,
Wow. You read my blog just as it was published. I’m flattered.
I am satisfied with the job that President Bush did. His greatest accomplishment as president? Getting Saddam Hussein, who killed 100,000’s of thousands of people, out of power. Fewer people are dying in Iraq today then were when Hussein was in power. Does that not count as compassion? Or does compassion only apply to Americans?
Thanks for writing this. It was well said. I really believe that time will vindicate Bush from the vitriol that he has endured over the last 8 years. As far as I am concerned, we have not had an attack on the US since 9/11. That is over seven years and that’s a big deal. The economy did grow. A study that I heard the other day showed how much better off many voters were than 2 years ago. And the economic bubble finally burest on his watch, but it was not his policies that started it.
That being said, I am glad we have term limits, but I would have easily have pulled the lever for him again over the two choices we had this time around.
I hope President Bush sees this and invites you to Chick Fil A. Being president of the United States is a very tough job, even though I would not give Bush all good marks. We should always support and pray for whoever is president of the United States even if we don’t always agree with all their policies and even if they don’t believe in global warming even though eskimoes wish they had air conditioning.
This letter is rich in emotion. I admire your defiance of the media’s perception of President Bush. They painted a picture of a greedy man, with little idea of what he was doing. And the world took it in. It is frightening how much power the media has.
One of my best perceptions of George comes from one of the most inspirational men on this planet… Paul Hewson (AKA Bono). In his book “Bono on Bono”, he describes a meeting with the then President, who’s image was already on the wane. He described a warm man, interested and more than willing to listen to what this culturally relevant rocker had to say. It was a refreshing change from what we’re used to reading in the papers, watching on the news, and hearing on the radio.
I pray that George Bush would miraculously come across this letter, and take the time out to read it. May it touch him, and bless him deeply.
I look forward to a future post describing your experience of meeting/hearing from George W Bush, or at least someone in his administration. 😉
Awesome job….I would also add that one of President Bushs greatest accomplishments is keeping this country safe since 9/11…not a single succesful attack. He has lowered abortion rates also, despite what some suggest.
There are arleaydy plans from the Obama camp to increase funding for abortion both here and overseas, to increase stem cell research and to allow military women overseas to abort their babies. Some of those initiateives are a driect afront on Bush executive orders….but I thought Obama was going to lower abortions…how do you do that with increased funding?
One of Obama’s first goals is to reverse a bunch of executive orders that President Bush put forward.
I’m really excited that we have a guy who is so willing to cross the aisle.
He makes me sick to my stomach. But he’s my president. I guess that the company that makes compazine (sp?) will make more money. It’s a shame they’ll be taxed higher.
I’m finished. 🙂
May peace be with you Deneen
