Christwitz: Dispense with political correctness

Lately I've heard discussions where people have said, "Political correctness has gone too far." Perhaps George W. Bush felt the same way several years ago when he expressed himself regarding the Patriot Act, as reported by Doug Thompson of Capitol Hill Blue from the Oval Office on Dec. 5, 2005.


“I don’t give a g--d---,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”

“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said, “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a g--d---ed piece of paper!”

Doug Thompson talked to three people present for the meeting that day and they all confirmed that the President of the United States called the Constitution "a g--d---ed piece of paper."

George W. Bush clearly stated where he stands in his interpretation of his vow to uphold the Constitution when he took the oath of office. I suggest dispensing altogether with the words "political correctness"; instead, replace those words with political consideration, ethics and integrity.
