Remarkably clean

    "remarkably clean"

    http://www.detnews.com/2005/politics/0510/29/polit-365208.htm

    Hello??? THe McCain smear in the 2000 primaries? The Florida election debacle? The 2004 election problems? etc etc etc re: bin Laden, etc etc etc?

    Not to mention that to call *now* the moment of scandal, instead of 2003, is like saying Clinton went 8 years without scandal.

    Weird.

    There is no longer any distinction between spin, and lies.

    If you look up Bush (google, wikipedia, or what have you) the word "controversial" is very prevalent. Maybe they mean no one has gotten busted until now. :rolleyes:

    If you google the word failure the first thing on the list is W's bio from the white house site. Of course you guys probably already know this!:rolleyes:

    Jeez, do you guys just not remember Clinton's scandal-of-the-week Presidency? Google "Clinton scandal" and see what you get.

    Bush has a lot of work to do if he wants to catch up with Clinton's record-setting administration.

    High Crimes and treason is what has been commited by this administration as well as by all those that allowed such actions to take place, not many representaitives took a stand against it! The houses need to be cleaned!

    Or is you partisan politics and ideology above the principles of what this country is supposed to be about?

    I remember these very well. I just don't care about real estate deals and extra marital activities, or definition of words like sex.

    Bush was able to catch up with one major offense, and that was putting our military in harms way with fabricated intelligence.

    I continue to be bewildered that people can't see the HUGE differences. :bugeye:

    SOS I agree with what you're saying but there is a very big misconception that clinton's war (in kosovo) was somehow just or necessary, and that U.S. troops were sent in for a good reason.. in many ways that war was actually facilitated by the clinton administration.

    I see what you are saying, but this was not one of the "scandals" being referred to or that was investigated. The U.S. has intervened in conflict many times during many administrations, and Kosovo was not a poorly executed quagmire that people regret.

    There was no revolution, or civil war, or conflict (such as invasion of a neighbor) going on in Iraq at the time of the invasion. This is the difference, and an important factor.

    Did clinton actually do anything other that get a blowjob by a pretty girl?

    I still remember watching the news one night when an anchor talked about the movie "Wag the Dog" then suddenly switched to talking about Kosovo occuring in the wake of the sex scandal. I laughed my ass off.

    Yes. Click the link I posted.

    But more to the point, if you want to be focusing on just what Clinton himself did, then you also need to drop the Rove/Libby thing because Bush himself had nothing to do with it. So be consistent: either compare individual to individual or administration to administration. Either way, Bush is way, way behind.

    I can accept that - the trouble is, for Americans the choices were limited. Since you couln't vote for either, even if you wanted to, no such conflict exists.

    Me too! I'm changing my voting strategy this time around.

    In all fairness we must then google "Bush scandal" although not scientific the term yeilds 13,100,000 Hits. "Clinton scandal" yields 4,529,000 hits.

    And most importantly: "No one died when Clinton lied."

    http://www.truthout.org/docs_05/011905D.shtml

    Then of course when we add a few other words to the "Bush scandal" search we get into the heart of the situation.

    http://www.cnn.com/2003/LAW/06/06/findlaw.analysis.dean.wmd/

    I will leave it here because I could go on all day posting links to incidents involving Bush and the Bush administration. And be able to do this despite the fact that the Bush administration has been the most secretive in the history of the USA.

    Except 2,000 US Soldiers DIDNT DIE when Clinton let a chubby intern play with his weiner.

    That method is flawed due to the fact that as time goes by, hits for a particular subject will decrease. But if you have a list of indictments, resignations, etc., similar to what I posted for Clinton, for Bush's term, I'd be glad to read it.
    Sure, but plenty died due to his incompetence and failure to act.
