Perspective - January 5, 2007


Asked in downtown Danville

Is President Bush a hero or a villain? He was on top of both lists in a recent poll.

I want to preface this by saying it is difficult because we are lucky to be Americans and I want to respect the president. But how can we respect a president who's responsible for a decline economically and socially and morally?

A hero. He's a moral, good person. He's got a good momma and daddy. He makes decisions based on what he believes is right, not what makes him popular. I'm tired of movie stars saying they are going to move to Canada if he were re-elected - why didn't they move?

Villain. He's creating more problems, bigger issues. Terrorism isn't going away. He's creating more terrorists in the long run.

Jill Pauletich

Both. I feel he's holding the country together pretty well but I don't agree with what he's doing with the war.

I think he's a villain. He put the country in a lot of turmoil and doesn't know how to get us out. That's what villains do - they cause problems and don't know how to get out.
