Talk about the two tailed dragon! First and foremost we need a political system that doesn't thrive on "President Bashing". I'm not speaking specifically of the attacks on President Bush, as I was also repulsed by the attacks on President Clinton (Bill not Hillary), when he was in office. The President of The United States has to be the most difficult and scrutinized job in the world and no one regardless of party affiliation is going to make all the people happy all the time. Every Democrat, including yourself, have said what an unnecessary war this is and it was a great mistake and personalized it to a Bush agenda. If this is the case answer a few basic questions: 1.) Yes, we all know that we did not find WMDs in Iraq, but what happened to them? We know Saddam had them, we know he used them on his own people, and we haven't seen definitive documentation of what happened to that arsenal that he didn't use to kill Iraqis...does this mean that they don't exist or just that we haven't found them? 2.) How many UN Resolutions and for how long was the civilized nations of the world supposed to "talk" before we considered the butcher of Bagdad a National Security Threat that would support terorist acts against other nations? 3.) Are the people of Iraq better off today under a democratic system than they were under the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein? With this in mind, unless information comes to light that we haven't seen yet, I feel that the President made a decision based on the available intelligence and we as a nation need to support our President. If you've got a better solution, make it a solution to win the war and not just pull out of the area and let the most barbaric survivor take over. On domestic issues, make each piece of legislation be specific and limited in scope. For way too many years special interest groups have had pork belly legislation tacked onto vital legislation. Put this under control with line item vetos of these fiscally irresponsible practices. I could go on for hours, but A.) I'm not that great of a typist and B.) I know you've got more replies to read. My question for you is why would anyone want to run for president. It became a big issue that you had unpaid parking tickets from your college years. Not exactly an earth shaking event in my book, but it seemed to be important to our petty media. We need to let our elected officials do their jobs without constant harrassment and special investigations and oversight committees etc.. If you are elected and do a good job great, you'll probably get re-elected. If you do a poor job, hopefully you wouldn't be re-elected. We need to be able to vote for the person we think will do a good job and not against the person we think would do a poor one.
