    What were the circumstances that made Truman say that? Polliticians today don't seem to have that attitude.

    Thank you for saying "politicians" and not Democrats or Republicans. Both sides are guilty.

    "The Buck stops before it gets to my desk or after it leaves" is more like the saying that would come from today's crooks in Washington.

    Are you talking to me?

    For the record, I have been down on Bush since the Patriot Act and things only went down hill from there. In fact, I eventually left the Republican Party because of Bush/Cheney.

    They are crooks and they are not trying to fix any mess.

    You are an idiot if you believe they are.

    Every politician in Washington is a crook, not just the Obama Administration, every single one of them... Republican, Democrat and Independent. No where have I said that only the Obama Administration was crooked... NO WHERE!

    And I have not just begun saying that. I have been saying it for six years or more.

    Why do I say they are crooks? Look at the tax evasion that is rampant in Washington for a start. Then you might want to consider your favorite issue, Bush's "theft" of the two elections. From there you might want to go look at the campaign finance "reform" and the reasons behind it.

    I AM NOT SINGLING OUT THE DEMOCRATS AS YOU SINGLE OUT THE REPUBLICANS!!!

    The Obama Administration is no different than the Bush Administration in regards to corruption nor the Clinton Administration, nor Bush I etc. etc. etc.

    It is a fact of life that power corrupts and Washington politicians are not exempt.

    Note: re the bush theft, both sides cheat during elections. That too is a fact of life and neither side will do a damned thing about it out of fear of getting themselves caught.

    PS Don't get pissed at me imply because I will not get down on my knees as you have and service Obama.
