More Bushes to come?

So, President Bush's approval rating is falling. Imagine that.
It is amazing to me that people are just now realizing what President Bush really is like, both as a man and as a president. You have elected a man who believes in God, which is a good thing, but you have also elected a man who believes he is God, which is a bad thing.
He will admit to no wrong. He refuses to accept the blame for his mistakes, which have cost us both precious lives and thousands of dollars and have taken away many of our freedoms.
And those of you who elected him and those of us who did not will have to live with his pompous attitude for years to come.
There were many of us who tried to get the truth out before the election. We failed. Now all of us have to live with the disaster and the consequences. It is too late to "beat the drum now."
l may not even live to see another election. But I implore you - those of you with the courage and strength of your convictions and with the good of our country in your heart - to watch closely the next few years and when it is time to elect the next president, remember how you were fooled by the "staging" and political antics this last time.
I have to remember something my grown son, David, said to me as we discussed the then-upcoming election. "Mom, l admire your efforts and the volunteer work you are doing, but don't you recall how they stole the election against Gore and they weren't even supposedly in power then?
"So what do you think they will do now that they are in power and have all the resources of the presidency behind them? I hope you are right but I think we are looking at a dynasty of Bushes for years to come."
It saddens my heart to think he may have been right.
