Saluting with misty eyes
And, once again...
NO ONE has ever denied there were parts of the Bush, Jr. administration that were less than 100% ethical... and yet, it seems that the ONLY thing the Liberals/Democrats have to say when they are reminded about their own missteps is "But what about Bush? This is all his fault!"
