    Seriously, George Bush has fucked things up that badly I don't think a Dem president can fix it. All that will happen from the moment Clinton or Obama are sworn in is they'll be blamed for everything - from the coming recession to the mess that is Iraq. So I'd hope the Repubs can continue their "work" for the next four years. Hopefully by then the recession might have receded a bit and McCain might have made some decisive motions towards Iraq. I'd say this presidency would be one of the biggest poisoned chalices in American political history. Let the conservatives stew I say!

    I would agree with you except that they're going to continue to pollute the high court and all that means. ;o(

    If I stubbed my toe, would it be smart to cut off my foot so that I can get morphine to kill the pain of my stubbed toe?

    Funny, but I wasn't saying they should be 'run' a certain way or the people should do certain things. My government may do so, but for me, no. I applaud when they do something I agree with, but do not feel compelled or qualified to say what they or say, New Zealand SHOULD do.

    No, it would be avisable to put some antiseptic cream on it and a plaster, but you would be careful about stubbing your other toes.

    Thing is, you Yanks have become so cynical about politics, all you worry about (both sides that is), is cheap political points - Obama's preacher, Clinton's speaking about coming under fire, McCain not knowing the difference between shi'ites and sunnis. You forget the policies etc, which is why it would be good for a Repub to take the flak that will be coming in the next four years. Let 'em stew!

    Really? You thought it was ok to go into Iraq... and you have no problem commenting on Chavez.

    I figure our government that affects every other country with its actions, is fair for comment.

    Liar - you have made post after post about Iraq and Afghanistan and Chevez. You say stuff all the time. And when New Zealand has the affect on the US, that the US has on NZ, maybe you will be compelled to say something.
