Sissy, I feel an apology is due you although I did recover somewhat. The possibility that I am getting somewhat of a thin skin is probably true and hence the reason I jumped.
I am so tired of the bashing without anyone offering just a simple but plausible reason for GWB impeachment.
While registered as a Repub, I was a Dem for a long time until I realized how much of my and your tax dollars were being wasted due to the 'Great Society' and came to my senses around 1980. Not due to who was President but due to the taxes and laws being heaped on my person.
Truth be known, I am both a Conservative and part Libertarian.
Now since the Dems have no practical solutions to the problems of our country, they are in the attack mode. It has gotten ugly and I dearly hope that attacks such as Condi Rice experienced (comments and cartoons) totally back fire on them. And I am covinced it will - it would appear it already is.
The attacks on Ms. Rice were as racist as I have seen in my years, including a couple marches I participated in during the early 60s'.
I am caucasion and was brought up not knowing a difference.
I can't decide if this vileness and hatred I see here is due to the 'poor loser' syndrome, a belief in the Democrat party that is blind to all other potential, people unhappy with their own plight in life, some of the guys having control freak type wives and this is their only outlet (couple gals also), jealousy of some type or maybe just having a President who has the courage to make decisions and stick with them. The last one always did polls to decide what to do.
Like the public could tell him! However, there are some in the audience who read what they want to hear and base their commentary on part of the scene and come up with declarations that they feel are correct and should be carried out. The key word, feel, is the problem. Allowing feelings to decide is a major mistake. While some of the conduct in carrying out the Iraq war has bugged me. (too much protecting of Mosques to the detriment of our troops)
I am so behind what this President is doing. And I see where people here say he should be impeached, I see others asking for a reason, like, what law has he broken, and the former never coming up with an answer. Instead, they insist the economy is bad while ignoring that economists who say it is great. Losing jobs overseas is another of their false jabs at Bush, ignoring the fact that Congress passed a major bill in 1974 to provide for job growth and job retraining due to Technology change and the globalization of our economy.
I guess I am going to stick with the idea that WJC was such a do-nothing President and was into the party scene, (the reason for the two hugh tents on the grounds of the Whitehouse during his tenure - WJC had more state dinners in his first 5 weeks of office than GWB hosted in his 5 years), that many are embarrassed and find their only recourse is to try to discredit this President. The DC press corps has gone on record that the party scene in DC is almost nil since WJC left office and even thought they are left leaning, perhaps the lack of free booze has caused them to be even more cynical.
The outcome of this Presidents policies and actions cannot be measured in such a short time. I wonder what the present naysayers will think in a few years? Of course, some will instantly reply that they know now.
May you have a good and safe Year, Sissy.
