    Seems to me that Obama is now Bush II revisited. GW wanted to be a 'domestic president' that brought both sides together. He failed in that, partially because of the election, partially because of the card deal known as 9/11. With that, I don't think he did so bad. But that is for history to decide, right now, I'm in the tiny minority.

    Why is Obama copying this, at this point in time?

    I have no idea what you are insinuating. Obama hasn't done anything yet as President since he is not President yet..

    How did Bush do? He screwed up the occupation of Iraq with Bremer. Katrina? I believe Bush will be rated better by history than he is now, but that is so funny in some ways. He is thought of so badly now that he has nowhere else to go but up. It will all be a matter of degrees.

    When 911 happened he and his team panicked...pure and simple. A few people who helped write the laws/regulations/policies for the WH concerning the WoT have suggested this is the case and they were on the inside. I saw a few speak on Cspan? I forget but it's out there.

    If he was on the ball 911 would not have happened.

    but I am curious about the powers that be being upset with the Panetta nomination. is it all a power struggle or based on principles?

    that's crazy. Why? the powers that be are huge supporters of his campaign early on. d'oh?

    be clearer. are you saying the powers that be would not be happy unless they got to appoint or that they have it in for Obama?

    Well your opinion is certainly held in high esteem, from the right and left. You are ever so insightful.

    Cool that, how you pile on and later come to ask, 'why' I said what I did.

    if you can't speak in more than sound bites or bumper sticker slogans, get the fuk out of here.
