You could go on and on about the personal politics of this forum, or you could answer the question that I originally asked: Why should anyone like Tom DeLay? For that matter, why should anyone be proud of George W. Bush?<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>There's no denying that there are some here that actually do hate Bush.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Exactly. And those are more who my comments are directed toward. It's the endless, sarcastic sniping at Bush (from many of these same people) that has been ongoing since day one. First he was stupid . . . then it was all because of his daddy . . . then it was that he "Bush is a monkey" . . . the it was that he is a liar . . . and that was just the first few hours. <br><br>I undestand what you're saying, Steve. But just like I did for Clinton, I'm trying to form opinions based on the facts. And don't take that as my saying that your opinions aren't based on the facts as you see them. They most certainly are. As for me, I'm try to weed between the hyperbole / opinion in the press and the absolute hysteria raging on the left. <br><br>I don't know if there has been any lying or not. None of us has heard what Fitzgerald has heard regarding the Plame case. Sure, there has been an awful lot of speculation, but we don't know the facts. <br><br>Maybe your conclusions are true about Bush. Maybe they're not. I hope not. For the time being, I'm giving the President the benefit of the doubt, but keeping an eye open to what you've said here. Like you, I'll wait and watch. <br><br>* * * * * * * * * * * * * *<br>I [censored] bigger than you.<br>

I just hope we don't have to wait too much longer, because it seems the doo-doo gets deeper every day. We need the truth - whatever it is - and soon.<br><br><br>Actually, I personally would like it now. At my height (shaddup DrJohn), it's already up to my chin! <br><br>

you talkin' to me? <br><br>yep, I hate the sob, so what?<br><br>I don't care what people look like, JHKriste!<br>I voted for H. Ross Perot!

So far <br>you've made it seem as if you're so far out of touch that you're beyond reach.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
"For the time being, I'm giving the President the benefit of the doubt,"<br><br>That is really all there is to do, regardless of the opinions on either side. Barring any unlikely eventualities, we have 3 more years of this man and his administration. He hasn't even started his last two year lame duck phase. Maybe he'll pleasantly surprise us, maybe he'll horrify us. My major concern of late is, with all the uncertainty in the air (most of it caused directly or indirectly by the Bush admin. of course) can it continue to effectively rule this country? If it all comes crashing down, where does that leave the country? Or the country of Iraq for that matter?.<br><br>We are what we repeatedly do. -Aristotle
