If there's one thing we learned during the Bush years it's the
percentage of dumbasses we have in this country. I think you'll find
that number corresponds with Bush's approval rating. Okay, sure, I'll
give you a free pass in 2000. Maybe you believed his campaign
rhetoric. But if you're still backing this administration then that's
nothing short of a character flaw. I don't think the middle class can
afford another four years of crony capitalism. It is indeed time for a
I pinned some tenons yesterday before the Super Bowl. I'm working on
an easy chair in the Danish Modern style. The Danes would never pin
their tenons, but I'm an American, dammit. And when the president
looks in the camera and lies to me, I don't "ditto" him. I call
"bullshit!" This administration is full of it.
Can you name on president of the USA, or any politician for that
matter that hasn't lied?
"I did not have sex with that woman"
"Read my lips"
"I am not a crook"
"I had no direct knowledge of our aggressions against Cuber"
"I didn't fire Marsten (the AG) based on political reasons"
"I have no recollection of that, Senator."
Read this whole, short article:
A politician that doesn't lie....
Yeah, right. I want to live in your world.
Wow.... you have irrefutable proof that WHH never lied? Ever?
It seems to be a well held fact that he lied about having "simple
roots" in his campaign. When his lies were uncovered, that led the
opposition party to derisively cite his history as "the log cabin and
hard cider campaign".
I am well aware that he expired before he had any other chances to
foister his own brand of dishonesty on the people of his times.
Fire away. But... this is like shooting fish in a barrel.
I >>personally<< can't believe in this day and age that anyone
believes anything that comes from the mouth of a politician unless it
is said to serve their personal interests, or the interests of their
Maybe it's just me. Some folks just seem to fall in love with their
candidates from time to time.
It is good that you believe all you read. I think lying is part of
politics and even though in office only a short time he almost
assuredly lied. He is a politician.
I thought in context my query was clear, backed up by a a second
question, hence the punctuation. With a (hopefully, anyway) clearer
question in mind, I am hoping you will substantiate your original
statement to prove me wrong. My apologies for being obtuse.
I reread another part of my post, and realized that it may have been
confusing as well. You said:
I did not mean for you to start a fire. I don't actually shoot marine
animals in confinement. I was hoping when I posted "fire away" you
would be familiar with the vernacular and "post away" with the names
of these gentlemen of great integrity.
So to clarify, who are the other presidents you know of whose
integrity is absolutely without question?
Well, that certainly gets a hearty agreement from me. If you were
here, I would get you one as well.
Maybe I am getting too jaded about all the politics and politicians
these days, but after so many years of voting for the least offensive
candidate, not one I believe in, I'm just cynical as hell about the
Going for that beer, now.
Thanks for the suggestion.
I absolutely hated our last elections as well. I remember thinking: "
Do I want to smack my head against a brick wall, or a tree trunk?" The
'lesser-of-two-evils' selection didn't work because the two choices
sucked canal water.
Beer is one of the very few solutions when you find your quag is
Here's to unmiring every one's quags!
... and probably did the least amount of damage to the country than she did
in any other part of her tenure.
Now, how do we get the rest of the House filled with the same kind of
public-minded politicians? Without declaring the seats vacant?
If you're going to be dumb, you better be tough
The column is by John Dean and is about a book entitled "The Lies of
George W. Bush: Mastering the Politics of Deception" by David Corn. I
thought about buying the book but realized that my anger at the
administration for their blatant prevarications would not be soothed.
It astounds me that we elected this administration not once but twice.
I will leave my rant right here before the administration apologists get
too high on their hind legs.
