Why is nobody asking questions about Bush's presidency? He tanked the economy in part because of his brilliant "let's give money back to the taxpayers" idea. He suddenly switches from Osama bid Laden to Saddam Hussein as a target, and no one even blinks. And why is it, if he's claiming he has to crack down on Hussein as a nuclear threat, he also gave North Korea the go ahead to establish a nuclear armament program? A country that has massacred thousands of its own citizens.

It's all about oil, just like the Gulf War version 1.0. He doesn't mind spilling our blood if it fills the coffers.

I love it too, Titus. Here is the exact quote.

"They that would give up essential liberty for a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

-Benjamin Franklin Historical Review of Pennsylvania (1759).

And your cure would be to put in [insert name here] as President?

Whom do you see stepping up to the plate in the next political go-arounds as your leader of choice?

I personally think that Bush is doing an excellent job, Karilea. I don't think that the Patriot Act is infringing on our civil liberties, as some do.

Ah Denise, sorry if you thought that was for you - it was intended more to the question of the first concern - so therefore directed at BSQ...

I, too, think that with what all of the countries have to deal with, that most men elected to their positions are doing the best with what they have behind them in their own countries.  It is those who are NOT elected and assume dictatorship that keep me awake at nights.
