Letter: Bush broke promises

David Le Vine
Vail CO, Colorado

I loved the line ” “Bush expresses confidence that an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord will be signed before he leaves office.” My only question is how long does he plan to stay?

This proclamation comes from the man who assured us of Iraq’s possession of “weapons of mass destruction” and then proclaimed “mission accomplished” some four or five years ago; from the same man who promised to capture Osama bin Laden and defeat the Taliban and bring democracy to the Middle East; from the same man who promised he would unite our citizens and balance the budget and end our dependence on foreign oil. You name it and we have had promises from Mr. Bush.

I’m afraid that it will never happen, but if it does, it will be brought about by someone other than our delusional president.
