Great moments in Irony..
Here are some really fun quotes...Guess who?
"I will have no part in the creation of a constitutional double-standard to benefit the president."
"No man is above the law, and no man is below the law -- that's the principle that we all hold very dear in this country."
The most indicted and convicted Presidential Administration in history was Ronald Reagan's. This usually comes as a surprise to people who naturally think Nixon holds that record. Reagan, in spite of the deep levels of corruption and serious jail time for his buddies, is about to be surpassed by George Bush, in spite of the tremendous advantage the republican party has in controlling the presidency, congress, and the Supreme Court. At the present time, every single investigation into Bushista misconduct is being blocked or derailed by Bush operatives.
The greatest fear of the Bush cabal is not another 9-11. They would consider that a godsend, actually. No, it is a Democratic takeover of one or both houses of Congress in the coming elections. Karl Rove is changing job titles in order to get him further from public scrutiny as he starts the final campaign in what will probably be known as the dirtiest election campaign in American history.
It has to be dirty...it's all Karl's got to work with. That's why Illegal Immigration is such a big deal all of a sudden. Karl needed a new enemy to be afraid of. "Mexican Terrorists" ...
One that doesn't have WMD's this time... the last enemy Karl picked seems to be fighting back. A manufactured "enemy" is necessary for Karl to have any chance of staying out of jail after November, because he simply cannot run on the Bush record. Even two years ago it was horrible but the Dems were unable to come together enough to make ther case. This time they may not even have to.
In 2004 historians were polled as to the "worst" presidency in history...84% called Bush a failure by historical standards, with only 10% calling his Administration a success.
Now they are calling Bush, "The Worst President in history!"
Very High praise, indeed!
Rolling Stone magazine has the best reporting on this.
