More moronic vitriol. Bush enacts the will of Congress. Ok. That’s why does his damndest to veto any bills that Congress comes up with that are actually good. Bush doesn’t enact the will of Congress OR the people. He’s no scapegoat. He’s a piece of shit. And he’s set the Republican party and this country back light years.
Bush has been less fically conservatve than the most wasteful, Congressman promoting the most ridiculous pork-laden bills. Larry Hunter, who I actually respect, said it best: the Republican party under George Bush’s leadship is a rotting carcass stumbling around like zombies in a horror version of Weekend at Bernies.
I know its much easier to blame someone (esp someone else) but the American people elect these guys. They (the politicians) are told to reduce spending yet provide things like drugs for seniors. They are told to reduce taxes yet defend the country. They are told to protect the environment but lower the price of oil.
How would YOU fare trying to ride herd on this muck of contradictions? Not very well.
Blaming the Republicans or even the Dems is wrong. They are like trained monkeys holding on for dear life to the back of a rodeo bull that has gone crazy. Our system is craxy.
When it collapses, what a day that will be!
Oh, I didn’t get to it fast enough. Our systems got plenty of problems. I agree to that. Not the least of which is politicians spouting bullshit to get elected and then going off in totally the opposite direction.
Most elected officials don’t exaclty enact the will of the people or govern on the platform they run on. Bush has been particularly grievous and made some particularly poor leadship decisions.
Decisions only tangentionally related to ideology and party politics. Or pandering. They’ve just been really bad decisions. The people and his own party are right to hold him in low esteem. As both do.
