    I love it when conservatives bring up Bill Clinton when Bush is in the hot seat. It makes me smile.....big time!

    What's interesting about the comment about the Today show is that I am almost positive that Matt Lauer is a republican. I used to like him until I heard him make deragotory comments about democrats. I haven't made up my mind as to which political party Katie Couric associates herself with.

    It's okay if Bush messes up from time to time. He is human. What is disappointing is that I never see republicans willing to criticize him. Just because you criticize someone does not mean you don't support them.

    Read some threads here--you will find Bush is severely criticized by consevatives on several issues. "Republicans never criticize Bush" is a myth.

    That is fantastic, not because I can't stand George Bush, but I like people who are honest about how they feel about their own party. I am glad I joined this board.

    I joined the Democratic Underground, but you know what? Many of those people are just spewing hate towards republicans and they say things that are just ridiculous. They blame everything on the conservatives/republicans. There's no true discussion. The only time I got some attention from them was because I posted something obnoxious. LOL

    Agreed to a certain extent but please provide evidence of when Democrats criticize democrats?? I seem to remember a lot of apologizing for Bill Clinton's constant screw ups. When democrats criticize their own?

    Another example....Why is no one calling for Gov Blanco's resignation or Nagins' but it's okay for Brown to step down??
    If nothing else I see some Republicans and all Democrats bringing Bush down incestantly daily and accompanied by the media...

    And welcome to the board!! :)

    Hi Bonnie. Thanks for the welcome. My statement about republicans not willing to criticize Bush is based upon other message boards that I have been on. I am a dem who is willing to criticize my own party, but I really hate it when people refuse to see any fault with their leader (and this does not apply to anyone here since I don't know whether that assertion applies here).

    Well, I guess for me, I see Brown's incompetence as being more egregious than Blanco's and Nagin's incompetence. Would you agree that Brown did not really have the qualifications to run FEMA? Now, just because some people called for his resignation did not mean that he had to resign. I believe that the Bush Administration acknowledged some culpability in having him removed from the aftermath. I think his resigning may have been because the Bush Administration asked him to resign instead of it being on his own initiative. My thoughts are that the Bush Administration was embarrassed to have Brown's lack of prior "emergency training" experience exposed over and over because it could be perceived as Bush not caring enough about FEMA to appoint someone who had experience.

    I guess it's pretty sad we're playing the "more egregious than" game with this. Typically to use something against a political opponent, you need to be better in the category for which the cricism applies. You libs have forgotten the rules of politics, that's why your losing. Your gamesmanship is weak.

    Well, Rightwing Avenger, all I have seen is 2 posts of yours, and all I see is an ass. By the way, you improperly used "your" when you said "your losing." It should be "you're." Just FYI.

    A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of a small mind. I've always thought homonyms should be interchangeable in all contexts. What are you, clothes minded?

    Care to explain why dems are grasping at everything that comes down the pipe as "the thing" that will finally bring down bush. They're grasping wildly even before determining if its a winning issue for them. This is not a winning issue for them, considering their own local dem incompetence. See. You're making bad political decisions out of desperation.
