As long as I’m being cranky this morning, I should include something about yesterday’s demonstrators at Monticello while Bush was giving a speech. First, many thanks to those who demonstrated. And shame on those who were upset and thought that the demonstrators had picked an ‘inappropriate’ venue in which to voice their displeasure with the president. And where should demonstrators gather? At some annual invitation-only demonstration event? I don’t think so. He is the president, which means he is fair game when it comes to hearing our displeasure whenever and wherever he appears in public. That is part of the job. That’s what he signed on for. Actually, he handled it quite well; as he should have. It was all of those who felt they had to defend him from criticisms; they were way off base and need to study the Constitution again.
