A few days ago I read in a news item that Karl Rove said Barrack Obama was "arrogant." What the item did not report was that Rove is the pot and Obama the kettle.

    Karl Rove is a very articulate thoughtful mechanic. He dusted up you liberals... twice. Obama could not wear his jock. As with all of the other bs, it sounds like you guys are still bitter about 2000. It is over. Bush has beaten you. Bush will go down in history as a greater president than Carter or Clinton.

    News flash to WTF- I don't beat the drum or support either of these political whores IE; Bush & Clinton. Just having a little fun with the Bush cheerleader thats been under a rock the last 7 1/2 years. Anybody that puts the truth, the Law and the Constitution before party knows that this President and his Admin have wiped it's backside with the Constitution.

    "Daddy Bush and Billy Clinton are best buds!"Now does anyone with any common sense at all really believe this? First, Bill Clinton moved into the White House four years too early as George H.W. Bush believes it; any president who misses out on his back four years to a guy who couldn't even amass the majority of the vote isn't going to get over that so easily, if ever.If anything, the elder Bush teamed up with Clinton for political expediency, nothing more. Perhaps he is naive enough to think that by giving the appearance that the Clintons aren't really that bad they'd lay off of his son. See where that line of thinking may have gotten him.No, there may be one or two salient reasons why Bush Sr. "teamed up" with Clinton on a couple of projects, but being "best buds" isn't anywhere near the plate. At the very least it must be difficult for a man with the integrity, ethics and morals of Bush to even be seen in the presence of such a lout.

    What was it Jr. said? He wouldn't mind the United States being a dictatorship as long as he was the dictator.Image quality is bad, but here you can hear it from the source.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvUEsm0wNIA&feature=related

    Newsflash to fmrusafssgt and Nextel!Daddy Bush and Billy Clinton are best buds!http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1187350,00.htmlIf I can find it, I'll post it; but there's even a pic of them wearing bobsy-twin outfits to a ball game. LOL!Bottom line?The "two" sides i.e., Repub and Dem are NOT different anymore; just two sides of the same old tired coin.Can you say fascism?I **knew** you could!This could also be why these goons haven't been impeached.

    Look, you can hate the guy all you want. I sure can't change your mind and I really don't want to take the time to try.But this constant onslaught of criminal activity by this administration should be taken care of if it is true. I don't accept a weak Congress or any other lame excuse for not bringing those in such positions of power to justice. If they've done wrong - pack 'em off to prison.But this hasn't happened, has it? I thought Harry & Nancy were going to clean things up once they gained control of Congress. What happened? They're worse than the Republicans they replaced.Strange world isn't it, Master Jack?

    Nextel - you specifically mentioned 'systemic corruption.' Unless I am terribly wrong, if such a claim were true then the President should have been impeached a very long time ago, don't you think? Certainly not finding Bin Laden may (MAY) indicate incompetence, but not criminal activity. The same would apply for much of everything else that the Bush-haters hate about this President.I highlight the word "may" because the hero of the 90s, Bill Clinton had this guy within his grasp and threw him back like a fish too small to fry. Well, Clinton sure learned a lesson from that faux pas, huh?

    Part of the proud 28% wrote @ 1825 "but with all this systemic corruption, where are the indictments; the trials; the impeachments;?" Glad You asked. Except for Sen like Lehey, Feingold and Wexler, the Dem's are a bunch of cowards that don't honor the Constitution and laws of this land. I truly believe though that we will see criminal charges against the key players in this Admin down the road. As for Bubba, we can talk all night about his short comings if You want go back 9 yrs. Come on, it's 7 yrs after 9-11. Where is Osama and his crew? At least Bubba rounded up Yuseff Ramsey and his bunch after the 93 WTC bombing.

    Nextel - Compared to this Bush train wreck and it's systemic corruption. But with all of this 'systemic corruption' where are the indictments; the trials; the impeachments; ???Clinton's sexual escapades were just the tip of an otherwise rudderless administration. Bin Laden was free to do as he pleased as a result of President Clinton's lack of attention to his duties. He'd rather run after the skirts, suborn perjury and lie himself - over and over again - than simply do his job. Yeah, those were the good ol' days.

    Former USAF Staff Sergeant perhaps?

    Nextel, I believe fmrusafssgt stands forFormer USA First Sergeant..just my guess.

    Word Jumble wrote @1034am "Not nearly as many as when the Clintons disgraced the White House."LOL!! Hell, those were the good ol days, when we just had to worry about a hummer in the oral office.Compared to this Bush train wreck and it's systemic corruption.

    Nextel posted How many times have we heard "Executive privilege" from these criminals in the Chimp Admin.Not nearly as many as when the Clintons disgraced the White House.

  • posted at 5:18 am on Thu, Jul 10, 2008.


    Good Old Turd Blossom, the architect of fear and smear politics. The first to play the religious right like a fiddle at a backwood ho-down. His little house of cards came down though after the mid-term "thumpin." And here he is back in the news today for ignoring a Congressional subpoena and refusing to testify. How many times have we heard "Executive privilege" from these criminals in the Chimp Admin.

    I would love to see a debate between Obama and Rove. I wonder if that could happen before November. I don't exactly like either of them but I am willing to bet that Rove is smarter and excels in sneakiness.

    And yet another intelligent, thoughtful and interesting Letter to the Editor gets the nod by the 'crack' editors at the Lodi News-Sentinel.
