I am a proud liberal and partisan Democrat. I loathed President GW Bush. But I never thought he was a traitor or evil. My son is growing up in a household with his parent's values and also calls himself a liberal and loathes Trump.
I made him watch this speech from W because I think it demonstrates W's fundamental decency. I don't think he is as sympathetic to BLM as he should be, but I don't think he is actively trying to polarize the country either.
This is normal, patriotic politics to me: I think he was dim, I think he was wrong, I think he left the country on far worse shape than when he took office. But I don't think he was evil, I don't think he was corrupt, and I don't think the election was illegitimate.
Plus everyone deserves to be seen at their best.
This is a attitude I fear is not present in some small yet significant circles.
Like +Dan Saunders I think what is coming out of the Trump campaign is qualitatively different from anything I've seen before, and it is bad for the country. http://youtu.be/gWC_BPqmRZI
