If Super Tuesday proved anything, it continued to show that most Americans want change in the office of President of the United States. The one person driving this change movement is not Barck Obama, but President George W. Bush. Millions of Americans believe that President Bush turned his back on them years ago with unpopular choices like the War in Iraq and President Bush never listened to or followed the will of the people. Most Americans wanted change before they ever heard the name of Barack Obama or his winning democratic campaign for President.
In an election year when Americans feel good about the service of the current President, a candidate like Obama would not be doing as well as he currently is. The big disapproval numbers of President Bush and the length of time they have stayed low is all the evidence that I need to prove that President Bush is the one man responsible for Americans in both the Democrat and Republican Party demanding change. President Bush was given a golden opportunity to be remembered as a great President after September 11th, 2001. I still remember that moving speech he made while standing with that firefighter at ground zero. However, it wasn't long before President Bush was moving American armed forces away from the people that attacked America on September 11th, in order to settle an old score with a man that tried to kill his father.
Without September 11th, 2001 there would have been no War in Iraq. Public opinion would not have allowed President Bush to pursue his old enemy Saddam Husein with the full force of the US military. At the end of the day, it was President Bush's decision to send American troops to Iraq that has caused the American people to now demand change in Washington D.C.. I personally believe that Barack Obama could be unstoppable in his bid for the White House. After each state votes, exit polling indicates that the American people want change more than anything else and no one in the current field of candidates for President represents greater change than Barack Obama.
For conservative Republicans that cannot image a President Obama for the next four years, they need to learn from this experience the next time a Republican President decides to declare war on a nation that did not strike us first. I am pleased that US troops are gaining the upper hand in Iraq, but the truth is they should not have been sent there in the first place and now a new President is going to be forced to find a way to win that war after President Bush invaded it in order to settle an old score.
