GEORGE BUSH MAY GO DOWN AS THE WORST PREZ IN HISTORY or ...

GEORGE BUSH MAY GO DOWN AS THE WORST PREZ IN HISTORY
or
WHY IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BE A REPUBLICAN TODAY

President George Bush has not distinguished himself by fighting for his judicial nominees. Indeed, the way he treated Miguel Estrada, he is arguably worse than the Democrats in the Senate.

Now seven Senators have made a deal to run the Senate, and they claim that it would be best for the President to get in his Presidential Yugo and drive down to the Senate Building carrying his hat in his hand to get his judicial nominees pre-approved.

If President George Bush accedes to this power grab, he will go down as the worst President in history.

The United States Senate gave up its legislative power to the federal courts; now the Senate proposes to usurp Presidential powers. Where is our Constitutional Republic in all this?

Previous Presidents have called Senators over to the White House and 'jawboned' them with political goodies to get them to support their agenda. George Bush, instead, called Ted Kennedy over to the White House and allowed him to write the Education Bill. Kennedy responded by saying that Bush had woefully underfunded education, and iced it by calling the President a murderer and a war criminal. Bush does not jawbone Olympia Snowe or Lincoln Chaffee; instead, he closes military bases in Trent Lott's Senatorial District.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BE A REPUBLICAN TODAY

It is impossible to be a Republican today because as a voter you send representatives to Washington who BETRAY you repeatedly. Even when the majority of the country votes for Republicans and traditional values, 'Republicans' tell us that it is important to let the minority rule the country, and traditional values are trashed.

I AM NOT A REPUBLICAN

Well, I used to be a Republican. I have been betrayed so many times I have lost count. The Republican Party of Florida re-districted me out of the Congressional District in West Orlando [where I live] and placed me in WEST JACKSONVILLE - nearly 100 miles away. There are three Congressional Districts in West Orlando, but I am assigned to West Jacksonville... a district so gerrymandered that some portions are only as wide as the center line in the middle of the highway.

There is no good reason for me to be a Republican; there is no good reason for me to vote any longer. All my votes, all my campaigning for traditional values, all my fighting against the Democratic oligarchy siezing power in this country has resulted in my own people disenfranchising me by gerrymandering me out of representation in Washington [Well, true, I have Bill Nelson... I remember Bill Nelson: about 1983 he said on local radio that Christians should not be allowed to vote since they are incapable of thinking for themselves, that they must be told how to think.]

Yep - that is what all my voting for 40 years has netted me.

If I voted for Joseph Stalin, at least I would get exactly what I expected. At least if the Democraps win, we know they will finalize the overthrow of the Constitution and set up their socialist tyrannical dictatorship. If that does not motivate Americans to do what is necessary to re-establish freedom, then what have I been fighting for anyway?

So kill yourself and get it over with. You certainly don't offer any other solution.

You get an A+ for hyperbole. You wouldn't be the first to misunderestimate the man and you won't be the last. This is a nine inning game, we aren't even at the seventh inning stretch yet and you have the ballgame lost.

Although I don't disagree with your basic premise I will wait a little longer to see how this plays out.

Bob Ireland Since Nov 29, 1997

Why the HELL would Bob be zotted for stating his informed opinion? He's not a troll. He's frustrated like so many more of us are. In case you didn't notice, this is NOT a Republican forum - it is a CONSERVATIVE forum. It is NOT Republican Party uber alles here - or at least it shouldn't be. When they screw up, we're not going to be afraid to point it out. When they're not advancing the cause of conservatism, it is our DUTY to point it out and fight to put them back on the right track.

Bob makes several valid points based upon his experience. Many of us could make the same kind of points based upon ours.

So, don't be so quick with the zot.

The truth is, from a strictly fiscal spendaholic standpoint, it has already been cast in concrete that George Bush is the worst president we have ever had.

Note my tag-line. I am not a "basher". I voted for Bush twice as the "lesser of two great evils" but the FACT is Bush has out LBJ'd even LBJ. Bush is a fiscal socialist who also happens to refuse to guard our borders.

Just think--the RATs are even worse. What does this tell you about the state of the union?

The filibuster cave-in proves that we conservatives have no representation in Washington.

Yeah but he fought like hell to pay back MBNA for their campaign contributions with the bankruptcy bill. And he is so NICE to Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy. Poppa Bush even gave a medal to The Swimmer after he called his son the Prez a liar on the floor of the Senate.

What a NICE FAMILY! They're so NICE. Too bad Harry Reid and Schmuck Schumer are not. Reid wants to "rush" a vote on the stem cell bill, but it takes 4 years to confirm Prescilla Owen. But Bush wants to GET ALONG with everyone and make up pet names for them and pat them on the back. He can't very well play hard ball with them over judges. That would be RUDE.

As Rush said, if we can't control the judiciary while controlling the Senate, House, and White House, then we will never control it. W has only two and a half effective years left. He and Frist had better make good one way or another.
