Dixie Chicks and President Bush

There is such a thing as a fine line when it comes to your respect for the President of the United States of America. Once you cross that fine line it isn’t like you can get a do over. Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks is back at it again voicing her opinion as loud as she can against the President of the United States. As an American that is her right to do so under the first amendment. All the power to her for having the courage and celebrity status to be heard on her heart felt convictions by so many. But this is a flip flop on her part because she apologized for her comments in London when she first bashed the President of the United States of America.

This is the meat and potatoes of my personal view on this Chick. No disrespect to women intended. The only reason that she apologized for her comments to begin with was because it was hitting her and the group in the pocketbook. She crossed the line not once but twice now and that is a major dilemma for her and the group. I don’t know if she checked or not but our kids, our friends kids, our neighbors kids are fighting and getting killed over in Iraq…Still! George Bush is not a Franklin D. Roosevelt or a Harry Truman but he is still the President of the United States of America. He is my President and as much as I disagree with his handling of the war or the country I will never disrespect or fail to support and defend his office. He is the elected leader of our nation and we have to speak up respectfully with facts to back up our arguments. This is coming from a Liberal Democrat that disagrees with President Bush’s POLICIES more times than not.

You can have a difference of opinion with our President and I’m pretty sure he knows that we do but when you cross that line and get personal then you have gone just that little bit too far. I’m still not buying a Dixie Chick’s CD anytime soon and that is how I am voting on this issue.
