    Doing our part to restore sanity, are we?

    Good morrow, all!
    Lessons of history: Dubya became governor of Texas in 1994. He took the budgetary surplus that Ann Richards left him, and *presto!* transformed it into a deficit and debt that Texas is still working on getting down.
    In 2000, the Supreme Court closed its eyes, held its nose and selected someone barely bright enough to breathe. Dubya took the bugetary surplus that Clinton left him, and…yeah, you can guess the rest, or look it up. He also ignored Clinton’s intelligence people about (surprise!) Osama Bin Laden, and…whoa, wasn’t there two really tall buildings in New York just a little while ago?
    That’s okay, we shouldn’t blame Howdy Doody when Buffalo Bob decides to go to war.

    CTZen,

    A partial rendering of history, leaving out significant events, is not history at all, but propaganda.

    He did not ignore Clinton’s intelligence people (if you want to talk about ignoring intel, look into how many meeting Slick Willy had with the CIA chief). Bush was working with the intel people you say he was ignoring when the attack took place. But in those almost-nine-months, he worked more with the intelligence community than Clinton did in 8 years. Apparently that’s about the length of presidential incompetence necessary for them to pull off the attack.

    And, in case you didn’t know it (though I am sure that you do and would prefer to spin these lies despite that knowledge) the House of Representatives does the spending, not the president.

    That’s about it.

    Brian: OMG, I feel so enlightened! You mean, 9/11 was well and truly unforeseeable? It happened on Bush’s watch, but it wasn’t Bush’s responsibility? Just as Hurricanes Rita and Katrina were a complete surprise to FEMA? Even Jack Kennedy took responsibility for the Bay of Pigs invasion, which was Dick Nixon’s idea to begin with.
    And who controlled the House of Reps between 1995 and 2007? When the spending for two theaters of war had to be approved? Wasn’t the Democrats, was it?
    12 years of Republican Congress (1995 to 2007) Eight years of Republican Adminstration (2001 to 2009) Six years when the Republicans held ALL the cards (2001 to 2007) Did the Republicans, in all that time, get it right?
    So, why is the infrastructure of the US falling apart? Why is the US ranked 37th in the quality of health care? After all those years of Republican control, why is the US the biggest net debtor country in the world? It did not all happen between 2007 and now, as you would have us believe. That kind of financial and economic trouble takes more than three years to effect.
    And you want to see the same people who got you into that mess back in control, only crazier this time. And I’m the one who hates America? Oh, please.

    If you liked Bush you are going to love the Palin administration.

    It happened on Bush’s watch, but it wasn’t Bush’s responsibility?

    Less than nine months into his administration. It had been 8 years since the 1993 attack that was actually designed to cause the tower to fall lengthwise on the business district of Manhattan.  Here you are, assailing Bush for not stopping this plat 9 months into his term.  Where is your outrage at Clinton for 8 years of failure to do anything?

    Bush was a puppet, picked to be potus because he could be controlled and looked the part. If Palin ever becomes potus the US will become the laffing stock of the world, and it will signal the beginning of the end of the US as the world’s greatest super-power.

    Good morrow, all!
    Brian: I really should find it odd that you should be giving Bush all the benefits of the doubt, and Obama none of them…but I do not.
    Dubya was Mortimer Snerd to Cheney’s Edgar Bergen. He was incapable of original thought. He took three promising oil companies in Texas, and drilled nothing but dry holes – while companies all around him practically drowned in the stuff. He owned the Texas Rangers, and lost money and fans. He took a surplus left to him by Ann Richards, and left Texas wallowing in debt. He did the same thing in Washington. When the towers came down in, did he call for a massive mobilization to clean up the mess and build something new? No, he started rattling sabers, instead of swinging a hammer. When Katrina and Rita laid waste to New Orleans, did he send in troops and resources and call for volunteers to rebuild the city? Hell, no! Those people were black, poor and probably voted Democrat! Let ‘em rot!
    Then again, why should I bother telling you? You already know, and obviously, do not care.
    And I’m the one who hates America? No, I pity America. It’s getting the government it deserves.
