    Bonnie dissent is part of American democracy. In addition, Bush is not doing particularly good job. Nor is his party particularly clean. If the conservatives are wondering who is hurting America's image they need only look in the mirror, and stop blaming the liberals for all their woes. After all, liberals did not encourage Tom DeLay to launder money. Or President Bush to appoint Brown head of FEMA. Nor did we encourage Scooter to give away national secrets. No, America's tarnished image is not the liberal’s fault. The potent proof of this is the history of only the last decade and a half. Under the liberal Clinton, the world looked quite favorably on the United States. Under the conservative Bush, they do not. Do not blame the critics for the Republican's inability to govern well; after all, it is the man in the wring that has to fight the fight, not the commentator. If the fighter looses he has only himself to blame. The American people gave the Republicans a blank check, control of both houses and the executive. They blew it. Using the opportunity to give fat handouts to their friends and constituents and complete ignored the people who put them in power. Blaming the critics for America's tarnished image is tawdry and cheap. The republicans made their own bed now we are demanding they sleep in it.

    First, Tom Delay didn't launder money. How can you launder money it was perfectly legal to do what Tom did until Congress passed the law a year later? Besides, who on earth other than those who pay attention to politics even know who Tom Delay is? How can someone unknown to most of the world tarnish America?

    I have no disagreement that the Republicans need to start doing what they promised to do. Now are the Democrats going to stop opposing them? The people voted in Republicans to reform Social security, fight terrorism, Strengthen the military and intelligence communities, to cut taxes, to reform government. How about Democrats start agreeing with what the American people want and stop opposing our agenda?

    I wasn't aware he was tried and found guilty, when did this happen???? So then Nancy Pelosi and all other liberals in Govt should be charged witht he same thing then huh??

    I wasn't aware that Libby was found guilty of anything here? Did I miss the trial??? He misspoke to a reporter about a woman who was already outed and sitting at a desk?? Actually the trial WILL be about Libby allegedly lying about what he said, there has been no proof of any outing of anykind.


    And we are not talking about Bush's mistakes here, the article speaks about power hungry Democrats and liberals in the media recklessly undermining our efforts in fighting terror at the peril of America's citizens.

    Explain to me what is going on in terrorists heads when they read our newspapers that bash Bush and his efforts to defeat them, and how the Democrats do NOTHING but obstruct and DEFLECT and do everything just shy of siding in with them????????? Tell me please how that doesn't embolden them???????????????? Did you actually read the article ???

    You have absolutely NO IDEA what the hell you're talking about. Whoever you've been listening to, they've been filling your head with MUSH!!

    Your idle, former "impeached" President Clinton, turned America into the laughing stock of the world during his presideny. He's the worst president this country has EVER had.

    The grand majority that you all eluded to no longer exists. Republicans were defeated in New Jersey and Virgina. Then the republican backed referendum in Califonia was defeated. If that is not enough to convince you I suggest picking up last friday's WSJ where the most recent poll shows that American's no longer "prefer republicans to democrats on handling tax cuts, cutting government spending, dealing with immigration or directing foreign policy". You guys are increadible...the top leadership of your party is plagued by scandal and you blame its innefectiveness of liberals. Your eagerness to find a scape goat drastically overestimates the potence of the left.
    Cheers.

    PS. As morally loose as the former president was he did preside over the longest and most robust period of economic growth the world has ever seen. He also championed free trade and saw the greatest steps toward liberlazation.

    What page of your "liberal response book" did you dig that crap up from?

    The Republicans are, and will REMAIN the majority. What people are "tired" of, is the whinning and crying, and "no new ideas" from the liberals. Liberals preach doom and gloom. Bad news for America is good news to them. Good news for America is bad news for them.

    If the liberals were allowed to reign supreme over America uninhibited, there wouldn't BE an America. They ruin much of what they touch, and morons like you believe all their lies.

    I'll bet you even believe everything that fatass, lying, pile of dog shit mickey moore says.

    Pale Rider,
    If you think the Wall Street Journal is a liberal mouthpiece then it you not me who needs to revaluate their position. The Republicans are not the majority any longer. It is on the first page of last thursday's journal, the Dems have a 11 point lead. Really, think before you write. The rest of the world views the United States as a bunch of boorish brutes. Not a bunch of whining pussies. Your response validates such their view. If you want to know why we are loosing the war on terror you may want to take a look at two botched millitary campaigns. How on earth did liberal opposition cause their failure?
