"They care only for their own power."
I don't entirely agree with you on that. Despite the fact that I am far from lockstep with everything that President Bush proposes and does as President, I know for a fact that he is the very best for America and the world, among our choices.
Bush and I are in Synce on everything that is most important to me. Everything that I am in disagreement with the President on, I would be ten times more so under anyone else who is running.
No human being is indispensible, but for this time and this crisis, our President is as close to indispensible as one human has ever been.
I was refering more to the RNC/DNC (the party powers) more so than the individuals. just as kennedy is NOT a true democrat - he cares only for himself and his own power and fortune, so are the xNC's.
Bush is OK - he lacks the strength of Reagan and fears the powers of the senate (or he agrees with their sentiments). Reagan would have by now HEARD the call of the people and shut the borders down already and would never have been playing games with the lives of the US MARINES!
You call on the MARINES to close in and DESTROY the enemy - you don't tell them to sit back and play nice with those who would KILL US. To do otherwise is STUPID!
