GUEST,Big Mick BS: Dubbya, Gore and DUI (112* d) RE: BS: Dubbya, Gore and DUI 03 Nov 00

Only have a second. For our more conservative friends, the fact that he got caught driving drunk has no more, or every bit as much, relevance than some of Clinton's indiscretions. It was 24 years ago, there has not been a repeat, and there but for the grace of God go I. It means nothing by itself. But measured in the light of the man's native ability, it certainly means something. He makes such a deal out of restoring integrity and honor to the office. A person of integrity running for the office of the President of the United States, especially with this as his mantra, would have come out early with this information. As Dick Cheney did. I don't like Cheney's views, but the facts are that he had the good sense to not hide this information during his confirmation process for Cabinet Secretary. He waited till he was caught and only then does he come to grips. The bit about his daughters is hogwash. I am sure they are fine young ladies, and I am sure that he and Mrs. Bush (who is a wonderful person) love them dearly. But for this guy to think that he could run for this office, and not have this come out is ludicrous. He should have been honest with them, and honest with the American people and did it early. He wouldn't have this problem then. And then he blames others for releasing it. YOU, MR. BUSH, ARE THE ONE WHO DID IT, WHY WOULDN'T IT MAKE ITS WAY OUT??????? One more example of how unprepared he is for this role. I could care less that he had the DWI 24 years ago. But his unconscious hypocrisy causes me great concern.
