During George W. Bush’s brief tour of the newly democratic Baltic states, Latvian President Vaira Vike-Freiberga presented him with the Three-Star Order, the nation's top honor. She called President Bush a "signal fighter [for] freedom and democracy in the world." However, on Friday Senate Democratic minority leader Harry Reid told a group of high schoolers in Las Vegas that the president is "a loser.'' The contrasting views show how easy it is for some people to take their liberty for granted. Those who actually have some experience fighting tyranny, however, appreciate what the president is doing. Let bitter partisans such as Reid rave on, but let’s keep them in the minority where they belong.
