As most of you know I love George W. Bush. Yet, one of the things that frustrates me is his lack of backbone and how he is TOO NICE!! He came into the presidency with the "new tone". The problem is the Democrats had absolutely NO PLANS to reciprocate that. So what has the "new tone" gotten Bush? Nothing but headaches!!
If you want to know what one of the biggest reasons for the Scooter Libby fiasco is because there are still a bunch of people in Government positions loyal to the Democrats. Bush didn't clean house when he took office and as a result many actively sought to work against him from day one.
This latest non-controversy over the firing of the U.S. attorneys is a perfect example. If Bush had done what Clinton had and cleaned house from the beginning of his presidency we wouldn't be talking about the absurdity of receiving flack about getting rid of 8 U.S. Attorneys. Clinton gets rid of all 93 his first year in office but Bush decides to get rid of 8 in his 7th yr. and its a national tragedy. The hypocrisy is astounding and yet Bush doesn't even really call the Dems and the Drive By Media on it. Instead he's upset about how it was handled. Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!
I also have to point out that the audacity of Hillary constantly shocks me. She is calling for Gonzales's head when her husband did the same exact thing except fired them all. After her atrocious actions in travelgate she has unbelievable nerve. My jaw is on the floor. She constantly does this. She or her husband commit a much more offensive act and then she turns around and points a finger at someone and accuses them of the same act that they aren't even really guilty of but she is. What do you call that? Audacious doesn't seem to be a strong enough word.
The bottom line is whichever Republican wins the nomination and goes on to be President in 2008 better have a backbone. That person needs to come in and not be afraid to clean house so there are no back stabbers undermining him during his entire administration. I would have to say that this is another reason I'm favoring Rudy. Do you see him hesitating to clean house? I don't!!
