A real fan of democracy

pResident Bush is disappointed in the outcome of Iraq's elections:

"I join many in Iran and around the world in condemning the Iranian regime's efforts to stifle freedom of expression, including the closing of two leading reformist newspapers in the run-up to the elections. Such measures undermine the rule of law and are clear attempts to deny the Iranian people's desire to freely choose their leaders," Bush said.

He said Washington supports the Iranian people's aspirations "to live in freedom, enjoy their God-given rights and determine their own destiny."

It warms my heart to know that this man has such strong dedication to democracy in Iraq. I only wish he had a similar dedication to democracy and the rights of the people in his own country.
