Now comes William Bunch:
"I've seen a lot of sad things in American politics in my lifetime -- the resignation of a president who became a national disgrace after he oversaw a campaign of break-ins and cover-ups, another who circumvented the Constitution to trade arms for hostages, and yet is now hailed as national hero. And those paled to what we have seen in the last seven years -- flagrant disregard for the Constitution, the launching of a "pre-emptive" war on false pretenses, and discussions about torture and other shocking abuses inside the White House inner sanctum.

"President Bush went on foreign soil today, and committed what I consider an act of political treason: Comparing the candidate of the
opposition party to appeasers of Nazi Germany -- in the very nation that was carved out from the horrific calamity of the Holocaust.
