Many Democrats are very judgmental about the actions of President Bush because they fail to take a close look at the lies and deceitful actions of those in their own Party. For example:
In the Presidential debate of Oct. 22, 1976 between President Ford and Jimmy Carter, Carter stated that he did not favor a constitutional amendment to outlaw abortion, and he would only work within the confines of the Supreme Court ruling to minimize the NEED for abortions. That is like saying, “I’m against slavery, but I will not work to change an unjust law, lets just work to reduce the NUMBER of slaves.”
From a speech by President Johnson, Oct. 21, 1964, at Akron University, Ohio: "We are not about to send American boys 9 or 10,000 miles away from home to do what Asian boys ought to be doing for themselves." In 1968, Johnson's last year as President, there were over 500,000 American soldiers in Vietnam. During Johnson's Presidency, over 30,000 American soldiers died in the Vietnam War. In addition, by the end of 1968, millions of South Vietnamese civilians were left homeless, and over 180,000 North Vietnamese civilians had been killed.
January 26, 1998: In the presence of First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Vice President Al Gore in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, President Clinton stated: "But I want to say one thing to the American people. I want you to listen to me. I'm going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time -- never. These allegations are false."
What will be the typical response from Democrats to this letter? Attack the writer for bringing these facts to the public‘s attention, and/or change the subject.

Are you kidding???? Democrats went after Johnson big time for Viet Nam, I truly hope EVERYONE believes we should work to minimize the need for abortions, but as long as there is a real world, there will be real needs for abortion. The trouble with people like you is that you think that sex is a problem. Killing thousands of innocent people (not zygotes) doesn't offend you, but normal sex does. You're just way too indoctrinated by the church. (Did I see Catholic? Let's see, no mention of priests abusing children as one of your issues...)

It's hardly a reason to discount great problems (denying the sovereignity of a people - domestic spying - Royal Presidential Power Abuse - invasion of a sovereign nation disliked by our current Mad King George III), just noting that others have problems, too.
Carter's position has not changed - he does not like abortions, he favors reducing unwanted pregnancies/conception, but not imposing his RELIGIOUS views on others. Even Orthodox Rabbis do not consider abortion the killing of a human - murder.
What Bill Clinton did with that woman in a blue dress, the POPE would not consider sex, since it could NEVER result in procreation. So, he was doing the usual lawyerly thing, and splitting hairs "sex=procreation", does that make EVERYTHING ELSE that resulted from his thoughtful, non-erotic policies sinful and evil? I think not.
Johnson didn't think he would be cornered into continuing the war, and that he could "Vietnamicize" it. Gee, he made a mistake on the order of the search for WMD's and lying to the people that Saddam was in the pocket of bin Laden. Or maybe not SO big and intentional. Okay, the size of denying levee breaks...er, Privatization of Medicare?
