You seem to have mistakenly concluded that everyone who hates Bush is as 
inarticulate as your friend. They aren't. We aren't. At least I'm not.
You certainly aren't inarticulate Stan, and I appreciate you taking the time 
to write very cogent reasons for hating Bush. (There are others. For example, 
Bush is a C-student and proud of it, thereby setting a bad example for all 
young Americans.)
However, my friend is not naturally inarticulate. He has an MFA, a 
well-blurbed and regarded book of poetry, and is the recipient of several 
grants and 
awards. So to see him so driven by hate as to be almost unable to grasp his own 
reasons for hating--struck me as something very unusual, something that seemed 
to transcend the particular issues under discussion. 

Perhaps it is fear for the future. He has three young daughters.
