Tainted Presidential Medal of Freedom

It’s sad that the first thought that comes into my mind after hearing about six people receiving the Presidential Medal of Honor is to wonder how horribly they must have screwed up. After George W. Bush awarding the medal to several major screw-ups, the automatic reflex is to think that he likes people screwing up America. I know it’s stupid to automatically think that the medal recipients must have done something really bad (no doubt most of the recipients did some really good work). I blame Bush.
