Oregon Daily Emerald: 10 reasons not to kill Bush

A recent commentary in the Oregon Daily Emerald, a newspaper at the University of Oregon, made its way into the Drudge Report today. The provocative title, "10 reasons not to kill Bush," probably had more than a little part to play in attracting that kind of attention.

While written from a liberal perspective, I found the column by Jennifer McBride to be extremely refreshing and perceptive.

In all seriousness, I don't hate President Bush. I dislike a lot of his administration's choices, but I think he's a good man doing a difficult job. As a leader, you're always going to be hated. I am too often shocked by the vitriolic repulsion many people feel for our leader and America in general, especially because the loathing is often poorly informed. I've met people on this campus who see America as the worst human rights abuser in the world (unlike the angelic paradise of Cambodia) and people who sway liberal not because they actually know anything about issues but because it's popular.
If you want to see the original at the Daily Emerald's site, here's the link. If the site is really slow (as it was with me), the link at the top is faster.

Daily Emerald. It's called the Daily Emerald.

It's the U of O's main newspaper.

Thanks for the notice of my faux pas on the newspaper name--chalk it up to finals brain fog if you could be so generous

You have an interesting blog here. Some of the things people put are kind of strange. Another cool site I like is a affiliate income marketing residual secret site that is about information marketing and a little other stuff.

Anyway, I like your blog and will proably be back.

Take care.
