In reference to Mark Gelbart's Jan. 13 letter, "G.W. Bush should be committed to a mental hospital":
This gullible, brainwashed citizen couldn't help responding to the letter from the gentleman who feels President George W. Bush should be institutionalized.
His analogies comparing the president's predicament on 9-11 to Saddam Hussein's situation were ludicrous, to put it mildly. The analogy alluding to invading Argentina at the beginning of World War II, instead of the axis powers, was idiotic.
As I remember, our president was not at the White House when we were attacked on 9-11. Was he supposed to fly into Andrews Air Force Base, not knowing the situation?
Perhaps Mr. Gelbart remembers that Americans fought World War II on many fronts: Europe, Africa, Asia, and the South Pacific. There were simultaneous campaigns in each of these arenas. In addition, America launched a vigorous home defense.
I think that we finally have another president who can walk and chew gum at the same time, and brave men and women to back him up. So, I say, let's keep G.W. Bush where he is and not lock him away.
