    I just don't friggin know.

    Unlike the rest of you dingbats, I'm not remotely arrogant enough to assume that I have enough information or access to enough intelligence to actually think I know what is best. So I have very little choice other than to trust that our leaders, and specifically our CiC, will use their best judgement to make decisions that are in the best interests of the United States of America. And therein lies the rub. I do have enough information to reasonably conclude that our current crop of leaders, and specifically our CiC, place their personal interests above of the best interests of the country on their prioritization depth chart. And that just plain sucks. Thankfully, IMO, any of the three currently viable candidates, are unlikely to do the same. I'm a little less confident about Clinton, but the other two I really believe want what's best for this country even though they'd disagree considerably about what that entails.

    What makes you think Bush puts his personal interests before that of the country?

    What makes you think McCain is any different than Bush?

    Just remember, you never use it. At least that's what you claim. So it's not very smart of you to depend on it.

    Oh, right, you voted for Bush.

    LOL!

    So all this is based on a hunch, but you have no actual evidence or anything to support your suspicion that Bush places personal interests first.

    That's the problem with Dems. They're jaded because they're used to dealing with Dems.

    or, used to dealing with people who can speak the engrish fucking language without creating more "isms" than profound statements.

    Still waiting for some evidence that Bush has put personal gain before the US. Maybe you could make some connection there, instead of just blathering insanely.
