Wow. The vitriol is in full flow now, huh?
Let's blame Mr. Bush, and Mr. Cheney for everything, and give the several hundred people on the Hill a free pass...
Nothing in Washington DC happens in a vacuum, that little something called checks and balances, some of you might want to look into that...
Yes, the President does wield enormous wartime powers, but Congress, you know, those several hundred folks many of you are giving a free pass;
controls the purse strings. The President, no matter who he is, ultimately needs the approval of Congress in order to accomplish anything at all...
What do you know, most of that same cast of characters that gave Mr. Bush the wherewithal to launch "global domination on behalf of the NWO" are
still there, and guess who put, and kept, them there. So are you going to put them, and yourselves on trial, too? Just curious.
Booing? A small minority, as is usually the case. Classless, to be sure; but hardly indicative of the majority of Americans, or the rest of the
world for that matter.
Unpopular? To be sure. But as my pal Semper said earlier, wartime Presidents rarely are...our brothers and sisters, sons and daughters are going off
into harms way, at his direction. You should have heard some of the stuff my Grands said about Mr. Roosevelt, and Mr. Truman. Both wartime
Presidents who sent 4 of their sons off into harms way, you may remember them, they were called WWII, and Korea. Mr. Kennedy, as I recall, wasn't
real popular with them either, Vietnam War, and two more sons off to war. One of those was, obviously, my father.
War time Presidents aren't usually real popular, save later in history.
Boo Mr. Bush if you must. He's tough enough to take it... Just make yourself aware, if you aren't already, that nothing happens in a vacuum. Save
some of your vitriol for the person staring out of the mirror, 'cause you, and I, allowed this to happen.
