Where Are America's Values ?

This guy had oral sex with an intern, was impeached by the United States House of Representatives, and later acquited by the Senate.

This guy has sent thousands of people to their deaths in an immoral war of choice, has spied on American citizens without warrants, and we can't even get a censure vote in Congress. What the HELL is going on in America?

Unfortunately, politics have become so partisan these days that justice is a thing of the past...

Ian; I agree. Politics is essentially poison in our culture. We are slowing killing our democratic system with the poison of partisan politics that has grown so sharply that it may very well be irreversible. This is true on both sides of the isle.

Careful Guy, unless you don't mind being "disappeared" one day and showing up at Gitmo the next...and I'm only half kidding about that. I think we can reasonably imagine this kind of fear.

And as for the partisanship problem...I wish it were true of both sides of the isle but there's at least two problems with this:
1. Repubs are currently sitting in more than 50% of both houses (so technically on both sides of the isle)
2. Dems ain't doing squat more than wimpering and rolling over.

The real problem is that we have a government that is entirely beholden and fearful of interests other than the electorate. Partisanship is just a sideshow.

I think they're both cute guys. Bill Clinton looks like he'd be fun at a party. He believes his own crap. But still, I'd go to dinner with either one of them, if Bill didn't object, which he would look at me and ask, "are you crazy?" Then say, "never mind that question."

I actually like George Bush overall. I didn't support the war in Iraq, but now I do. I don't see him as the villain that you do.

What do you think of John McCain?

Watt: Nahh . . I'm not worried about that . . . George is too busy having to worry about folks like Cindy Sheehan . . . I'm a nobody, who thinks he's an incompetent fool--no one listens to me. I think contol of congress is potentially about to change . . .however you are correct that the democrats have to do more than wimper and roll over. They have a perfect opportunity to clean both house, senate, and white house . . .time will tell! Thanks for stopping by.

Annegb: It's not so much that I think George Bush a villian as I see him as I told Watt above, an incompetent fool--but as they say reasonable minds will differ.

I like John McCain; and depending on who the democrats run in '08, I could conceivable support him; however, I would much rather support Mitt Romney, depending on how he can do in the primary season . . .which will soon be upon us! Thanks for stopping by!

Partisan politics may be just a sideshow. There is more likely more going on in the background than we realize. This country is undoubtedly run by the special interests.

George Bush a villan? Perhaps this depends on how you define a villan. If you define a villan as an "incompetant hack" then I think that he is a villan. If you see a villan as "n evil dictator who is bent on fulfilling his own desires at the expense of the American people" then that title belongs to Karl Rove and/or Dick Cheney...

On John Mccain,

I was willing to vote for him in 2000. While I don't agree with all his politics, I think that, for the most part he is genuine and he is often a peace maker where others are vying for contention. We need that in a leader.

I just don't know anything about Romney to make an informed decision.

Did you notice that the Drudge Report printed an interview with Hilary Clinton saying nice things about Bush?

I didn't read it all, there was probably a "but" in there. But still. . .

Annegb, She was being polite, when asked if she could actually think of something nice to say about him. He still needs to go. He is still the worst President in my lifetime, if not all of history.

I simply don't agree with that, Guy.

Only history will tell us the truth about that, but I think Jimmy Carter was the worst president.

Maybe one of the best men, but sucky as a president.

I'm watching Meet the Press and I kind of like Feingold, how he talks.

Annegb: Yes, I too like Finegold. There are some good potential candiates out there. Let's hope we get a better choice than we have had over the last few elections.

But, I still think history will deal harshly with George W. Bush--and rightly so!
