Why do I hate this man? No, it's not what you think. I don't hate him for any of the things he has done. I hate him for the things he won't do over the next three years that ONLY he could accomplish.
George Bush is the politician most beholden to Big Oil and Big Business in the history of the world. Without his parents money and the oil industry, George would be a 3rd rate contractor in some small New England town, down at the bar every night tyin' one on and sneaking home to his third wife. As the politician that is most closely linked to the companies destroying our environment, he is the only one who can save it. Just as Nixon was the only President who could go to China, because he was such a hard-liner and would not be seen as an appeaser, Bush is the only President who could save the world, a President Gore certainly could/would propose it, but he couldn't do it. No, Bush is the only President that can save the planet. Literally. But, he won't.
He has this God complex where he wants to be seen as powerful, but in reality he is a small man whose vision lacks the ability to see great change. Bush could still change our world in just three years and forever after be seen as the man that admitted he was wrong, that the planet was doomed, and set out to fix it, and Damn the Torpedos! As Clinton today tries to fix the failures of his Presidency, so too Bush could be welcomed around the world after his days in office if he continued to fight for a safe planet - but he won't. And, for that, I hate him.
