The masses wanted Al Gore in 2000. We got GWB instead. And that has been part of the problem, in my view. Suddenly, what the people wanted didn't matter. The people didn't want the President, but we got him.
Not exactly true -- get over it already!
NNJfitandbi saidIt is true that the people apparently wanted him in 2004, but by that time he felt no obligation to be truthful to us. Would he have been reelected if he admitted that he lied about the intelligence supporting Saddam's supposed WMD buildup? Or if his most trusted members admitted to outing Plame?
Bush did not lie, he was given wrong intelligence info -- same info everyone else who voted for the war including Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden were given...again, GET OVER IT! Remember that Saddam Hussein himself was a WMD.
As for the whole outing of Plame affair, truth be told, I would venture to guess that most Americans don't give a flying fig if, when, how, or by whom the woman was outed.
NNJfitandbi saidThe bottom line in 2008 is: we'll get whom we deserve.
THAT we agree on and whom ever it ends up being, we all as Americans need to accept the ultimate result of the election and unite so that the President feels the support of the American people and, hopefully, he can do the very best job possible for the good of a "united" America and a better world.
