Isn't it sad that a man (either Burkett or Rather) can have his life so consummed with hatred for Bush that there seems to be little else in his life? He (they) give up almost everything else to pursue charges against Bush (which seem rather [no pun intended] meaningless when examined).
This is the really amazing part of this whole story, the "crime" they are trying to expose (even if true, and I don't concede that it is) is so minor, as to be on the level of jay walking.
I have read that the true plan was to slowly build a case that President Bush was a druggie and come late October run a story connecting the dots.
But again, (and I don't concede any truth to those charges) President Bush has already admitted that he had a period in his life where he was wild and reckless, and then he repented and reformed his life.
President Bush is not running on who he was 35 years ago, but on his record of the past four years. You would think the Democrats would be able to find something more recent to disagree with this administration.
John Kerry made a big mistake using his time in Viet Nam as the reason to elect him President. If he was as smart as they keep telling us, and he had plans to run for President some day, he should have cleaned up his record years ago. He could have gone to one of the many Veternans conventions and apologized for his words and deeds. This simple act would have neutralized the Swifties, but it is obvious that he still thinks he is right, and that thinking is what will keep him from winning this election.
I have often wondered about how Bill Clinton was able to get away with all he did. The only conclussion I could come up with is that he sold his soul to the devil, but the price was more then his sould, but the entire Democrate Party. Think about it, Bill Clinton with all he said and did, comes out of eight years of scandals in the White House untouched, yet everything else is in shambles. If the Democrats are mad, they are focusing on the wrong man (President Bush), the real cause for their current pain is Bill Clinton.
Perhaps Bill Clinton was good for the country after all. If his eight years in the White House results in the death of the Democrat Party, then it may have been worth it, thanks Bill. (Maybe Bill Clinton was a Karl Roves invention as well.)
