16. Will anyone ever be charged
for any of the 1,000s of rules and ethics violations committed by the Bush administration? I voted for Obama in the hope we could get some accountability from the last administration. It looks like they will getaway with all of it! As much as I was on the side of Obama and the Dems. they have turned out to be cowards!
Its sickening.
