View Full Version : Integrity and Character in the Bush White House? Ha Ha Ha

The Republicans made all sorts of crazy claims about the Democrats destroying the White House and it made front page news.
Now that it has been independantly proven that the claims were FALSE , Bush and his "character" are no where to be found.
Perhaps we should harken back to a great movie line...
Character... It's something you have. It's not what you are!
I feel a lot less worse about having a Republican president now that the Dems are about to control Congress. In my opinion, no party should have control of the White House and Congress for any length of time. Pushing a strictly conservative agenda for two years or more would be bad for the country. Before you accuse me a Republican bashing, I'd feel the same if the Dems had the White House and Congress. Too much liberalism would be just as bad.
I feel that Clinton was a fine President, and part of what made him a fine President is that he had a Republican congress that forced him into taking a more centrist road. Could Clinton have done more good than he did? Possibly, but I think he would have been hampered by the Republican Congress. I think the good things that he did accomplish served both the GOP and the Dems.
My biggest worry about having Dubya in office is that far too many conservative agendas would be pushed through. The Republicans did nothing but seriously bash Clinton while he was in office, and I think they were looking forward to a period of "revenge legislation", for want of a better term. I'm glad that now they'll be forced to a more centrist postition. Frankly, I think that the Dems gaining control of Congress is the best thing that could happen for the American people, simply because of the balance it will bring to government.
Now of we could just get Bush out of the back pockets of the oil companies we'd be set, but nevermind... :D
Ok, someome else can have the soapbox now.

Economically speaking, its a pretty well-accepted fact that government gridlock is good. As someone once said, Its far more important to stop bad legislation than to pass good legislation.

Not that it was payback or anything, but the kinfolk of two of the 5 Supreme Court justices that appointed Bush were nominated for the highest legal positions in two different cabinet departments:
