You seem to live in a world where Bush is responsible for everything and congress responsible for nothing even when the Dems are in control of same.
C'mon Ken: Bush and his "ideology" oriented approach to everything and 0 skill at handling anything along with (yes, Zubaz, I agree in part)
the inability of the public to see beyond his phony games is responsible. The Dems had at best a 1 vote margain and Lieberman voted in a way his state would get the most pork it could. Congress alone can't do anything if they don't have the votes to override the incompetent bush's vetoes and Zu, you should know that. Just remember: If we screw up this time, no one says we'll be able to recover.
The truth hurts: We have been profligate in our spending, inadequate in our saving and greedy in our investing. A RADICAL overhaul is needed: Regulating Wall Street should have been done and it's OUR responsibility to demand from the pols what is best for this country.
Too long we have abrogated our responsibility. The people, WE the people get the government we deserve...for the better or worse.
Calling each other names will not help. Villifying and demonizing each other won't either. Palin is not ready. Palin is presenting false claims and false credentials and wasn't properly vetted by McCain who is known for his impulsiveness and her nomination was yet another "Gotcha!" because Obama didn't (and should have) nominated Hillary.
Let's face it: This election is too important not to participate in so whichever way you feel, vote.
Adn do ti ofnet!
