Ok, I know that not everyone likes President Bush. I do feel, however, that we should all have respect for him because of the position he holds. I got SO annoyed the other day when I heard an older woman say, “I’m sorry, President Bush just can’t be a good Christian if he allows gas prices to get this high!” Ok, we have a president, not a king from long ago. It bothers me how little most Americans know about our government and how it works. President Bush can’t go to his podium one day and announce, “Today, gas will be $1 cheaper everywhere. I have spoken!” He doesn’t have absolute power. For a long time he recommended drilling in Alaska to help lower our gas prices but Congress said no because they didn’t want to harm nature. And that brings me to another thing: we have a president from one party and the majority of congress is from the opposite party. I’ve heard people say that President Bush hasn’t really done anything. I feel that he has tried but he has a congress that won’t work with him. I’m so tired of Republicans only helping Republicans and Democrats only supporting and helping Democrats. Can’t they all just try to do what’s right for the US? All I know is that since 9-11, President Bush has kept our nation, my family, and me safe and for that I thank him.
