As a matter of fact, if Washington really intended to stabilise the Dollar or, more ambitiously, to push it up against the other currencies, there would only be one way (5), in two parts: raising significantly the Fed's interest rates, and lowering drastically the pace of money printing
Wow, I guess we see the maturity level coming out with the responses to this. I guess if everyone could worry about the real problems at hand instead of ways to make fun bush then things would maybe get done by the radical left.
The lets make fun of bush thing is a little worn out kids!

Guess our current Administrator must have only been looking at me in the eye (through the TV) when he said there were WMD's in Iraq... Y'know, come to think of it, he also looked me in the eye years ago and said "Mission Accomplished". He also told me I was never going to bay $4 a gallon for gas. It was $4.09 on the way to work this morning. Now, granted, he did buy me two tanks of this $4/gallon gas
It's ok, we all post without thinking sometimes...
If you want to discuss lies that the last few administrations and/or sitting presidents have told the nation, I'd be happy to do so in a thread dedicated to the topic.

No kidding. That's exactly what I just said. This act does not compare to what Bush has done. At the same time, such acts also detract from the real issues.

I find it rather disgustingly disrespectful.
DO we still have troops in Iraq? Is there still a conflict over there?
If you rely on the so-called mainstream media, you may have difficulty answering those questions these days. As Iraqi and Coalition forces pile up one success after another, Iraq has magically vanished from the headlines.
Want a real "inconvenient truth?" Progress in Iraq is powerful and accelerating.
But that fact isn't helpful to elite media commissars and cadres determined to decide the presidential race over our heads. How dare our troops win? Even worse, Iraqi troops are winning. Daily.
You won't see that above the fold in The New York Times. And forget the Obama-intoxicated news networks - they've adopted his story line that the clock stopped back in 2003.
My fellow Americans, have you read or seen a single interview with any of the millions of Iraqis in Sadr City or Basra who are thrilled that the gangster militias are gone from their neighborhoods?
Didn't think so. The basic mission of the American media between now and November is to convince you, the voter, that Iraq's still a hopeless mess.

My entire point was that despite the fact that Clinton looked me right in the eye and lied to me, I still wouldn't think it's appropriate to name a sewage plant after him (or a wing of the sex museum as I presented.)

What I got from your post was that naming the sewage plant after Bush was wrong. You supported this basically by saying that even though Clinton had the audacity to lie to you about a little extra-marital action, you wouldn't support a sewage plant being named after him. You compared the wrongs of Clinton and Bush, and while the Clinton family has an impressive list of substantially accident prone friends and acquaintances, there is absolutely no comparison whatsoever. would you let a murderer go because you think its wrong to imprison a jaywalker?
