I find it ammusing that Mr. Dean has the audacity to charge the Bush Administration as the most corrupt ever because these were the same charges
levied against the Reagan Admin
during the dark days of the Iran Contra Affair. In those days our CIA Cheif was a crook who took his secrets
to the grave, Meese was the new Herman Goerring with an insatiable apetite for destroying our civil liberties, Ollie North was a psychopathic guard
dog who didnt have the dignity to wear the uniform, Reagan was a senile old codger who didnt have the dignity to resign, and Bush SR was supposedly
the man who ran everything.
So lets summarize: VP Dirty as Hell, President Incompetent, and our Att Gen is a Neo Nazi. Now if that doesnt read like the claims against Bush Jr
your more than likely senile yourself.
Some have claimed that 4 of the last 5 Republican Administrations are corrupt crooks and that the 5th one is on the cusp of being run out of town,
and yet history has shown itself that these scandals blow over.
During the height of Iran Contra, the newspapers ran all sorts of overhyped editorials desribing the future fate of the Administration, one from March
of 87 comes to mind.
First his own son betrayed him in incriminating personal correspondence that showed up in the Miami Herald, then Aarab arms dealer Adnan
Khashgogi went sideways on him by offering to produce canceled checks to prove Geeorge was lying when he said he had never solicited illegal
contributions for the contras...
Many heads will roll in Washington when that happens and there is no joy tonight in the home of George Bush. They will soon be loading him up on the
tumbril with others and carrying him off to the guillotine
Mr. Thompson had GW at a 30-1 Odds of becomming the next president and that Reagan would resign by the end of the year. Im a huge fan of Hunter but
his writings during this time only show case the fallacy of GWBs Admin being the most corrupt in history. The 30-1 horse became President even with
the weight of Iran Contra HEARINGS, somethign GWB hasnt been slammed with
So if GW Sr. Was such a mean bastard then why did he dodge jail time?
Iran Contra produced hearings and indicments as did Watergate but last time I checked there has been no independent council appointed to investigate
the president. You may have bush at a 50-1 Odd of being re elected but just remember what happened to Gary Hart, our president in the wings of 88.
