Letter: Bush should speak out

President Bush must believe that the end justifies the means when one is trying to win in love, war and politics. Does Mr. Bush really believe it is okay to deceive and take the low road in campaigning, because it is so important for the country and the world he be re-elected? It is shameful.

Bush has not specifically called on his swift boat friends to stop their disgusting, untruthful ads that attack John Kerry’s war service. Persons of strong faith should take the high road when campaigning and call on their surrogates to do likewise.
