Play the “If George W. Bush had” game with them:
If George W. Bush had doubled the national debt in one year, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within ten years, would you have concurred?
If George W. Bush had criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read, would you think he was just an ignorant hothead?
If George W. Bush joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder whose side he was on?
If George W. Bush had put 87,000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling merely because one company had an accident, would you have thought this was disproportionate and harmful to American workers?
If George W. Bush had forced a change in your health care coverage even though the majority of people did not seek or approve of these changes, would you begin to worry about an abuse of power by the executive branch of the government?
If George W. Bush continually bashed the United States and seemed to side with known dictators, would you feel comfortable?
There’s more… and the concluding question is most pointed.
