I am really starting to believe that too, dg, unfortunately. He's out of control.

Well, he should just come out and declare himself the dictator because THAT is what he IS.
A president who thumbs his nose at the nation who spoke LOUDLY during elections and still insists on doing it his way is nothing less than a DICTATOR.
And shame on the US population, including me, for allowing this to go on.
Furthermore, the entire government, including Liberal hot shots must have the same agenda.
Like the man who sat on the screw said...........

A leading democrat - Silvestre Reyes, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence - does a complete about face on the troop surge. First Reyes tells Newsweek that we must do it to defeat the militias. Then when Bush proposes the exact same thing (only with less troops than Reyes recommended), Reyes turns and toes the demo party line and complain about Bush's plan.


On Dec. 5, Newsweek magazine touted an interview with then-incoming House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Rep. Silvestre Reyes as an "exclusive." And for good reason.
"In a surprise twist in the debate over Iraq," the story began, Mr. Reyes "said he wants to see an increase of 20,000 to 30,000 U.S. troops as part of a 'stepped up effort to dismantle the militias.' "
"We have to consider the need for additional troops to be in Iraq, to take out the militias and stabilize Iraq," the Texas Democrat said to the surprise of many, "I would say 20,000 to 30,000."
Then came President Bush's expected announcement last week, virtually matching Mr. Reyes' recommendation and argument word-for-word -- albeit the president proposed only 21,500 troops.
Wouldn't you know, hours after Mr. Bush announced his proposal, Mr. Reyes told the El Paso Times that such a troop buildup was unthinkable.

So, please don't try and insult our intelligence by saying what the dems are doing is for the troops and is not politically based.

Don't you really hate it now that when the dems finally get power they start making the exact same mistakes that the Republicans did when they were running things?

A president(or congressman) isn't compelled to vote according to opinion polls. That doesn't mean he's a dictator. That's why there are elections, so that they can be replaced periodically. We could just have a popular vote on every foreign and domestic policy decision, and get rid of most of the government, but I don't think that pure democracy would be very popular as it's completely impractical. Our system isn't perfect, but it's as good or better as any other system that's been tried.
