Why should readers of the BJGP be subjected to your and your contributors' glib views on the recent US presidential election?1,2,3 At least one of your readers is happy that Bush was re-elected. Kerry voted against the 1991 war against Iraq. Had he been in power then, we would have faced a Saddam in charge of a ‘greater’ Iraq enriched by Kuwait's oil wealth. He was often ambivalent in his support for the war on terror, managing to portray himself as being both against it and critical of it not being fought with more vigour.
In Bush we have that rare thing, a politician who says what he means and does what he says. I am grateful for his, and Blair's, resolve to overthrow Saddam's regime. I don't mind you disagreeing with me. I do mind the cosy assumption of so much of the media that the re-election of Bush is ‘perplexing’ and that only an idiot could support him.
