>> "And the more they attack the TEA Party . ." We need widespread reform of gov't. The bloated, dysfunctional, self-serving bureaucracies & boondoggle beneficiaries are scared to death of a reformer getting in the White House. Ergo constant attacks on TEA & Palin It seems the candidates for genuine reform are Palin, Guiliani, Christie, who else? QUESTION -- How much can the President actually do ??? If we had a reformer in the WH, can he/she fire 95% of bureaucrats? Can he/she close gov't departments? Can he/she change gov't personnel wherever they like? The ENEMY WITHIN -- Our federal gov't is completely overrun with loony lib career corruptocrats, traitors, & fools. They are much less than useless . . they're highly destructive. If this can't be changed, then our future is very gloomy Personally, I am genuinely curious how much difference the President can make nowadays. Has the President become a figure-head, with no power to change the monster bureaucracies? The obvious fear & loathing heaped on reformers like Palin make me believe the President can still change things. Maybe I'm being optimistic?
