Ronald Reagan gave business back to business. He campaigned on that. GHW Bush promised no new taxes despite rising national deficits but as far as business was concerned, ditto. He lied and was soundly defeated in 1991, just a few months after supposedly "winning" the war in Iraq. Go figure? Bill Clinton, an underdog from day one, became President of the United States of America in 1992 with a promise of universal healthcare. He didn't lie, his vision was just defeated from a more conservative congress, Democrats and Republicans alike. Now we have dubya. He's a "Compassionate Conservative" or so he said. He also said he was not into "nation building" and a lot of other things. I submit that he is NOT a conservative, he is NOT compassionate and he IS into nation building, or destruction, whichever way you might want to look at it. Regular people living regular lives voted in all these instances for candidates that promised relief from regular problems. Even a casual look at statistics reveal that cynicists refuse to vote at all. Considering the three promises that were made by GWB, how can you possibly believe or trust anything he has to say?
