Moral High Ground

Dear Editor,

I must say that I am fed up by Bush supporters who claim the moral high ground for themselves and their chief.

I wouldn't call a person who led a country into war on lies and deceit and upon who's watch thousands of our own soliders have been killed and maimed, along with many more thousands of Iraqis, to be on any kind of Moral High Ground.

It is simply amazing to me how those who care so much for an unborn child can care so little for the innocent lives in Iraq and elsewhere in this world who are being damaged by US foreign policy.

Hypocrisy is the one outstanding characteristic I see with President Bush and his supporters.
