Jim the Bart POL: A Salute to Jim Jeffords! (131* d) RE: POL: A Salute to Jim Jeffords! 30 May 01

I think the point keeps getting lost as we fumble around the concept of what "loyalty" means in the political context. Bush campaigned as a consensus builder - one who would allow disparate ideas to be brought to the table so that better decisions on policy could be formed without the rancor that was the legacy (at least according to the Republicans) of the last administration.

Instead, Mr. "What you see is what you get" shut out even the voices in his own party who weren't willing to swallow his package whole. He is a liar and a transparent shill for big business and the oil industry. Cheney is getting better, though - I hardly see his lips move when Bush speaks anymore. The sooner this sorry bunch gets packed off, the better.

John P - I couldn't agree with your post more.

Mav - It's hard to accept when your guys let you down (like Clinton did for so many Democrats). But if you keep trying to defend the indefensible you might begin to lose credibility.

Later, folks.
