26. Shrub gets most of the blame, though not all...
Edited on Thu Feb-22-07 04:13 PM by RiverStone
We can agree that Shrub needs to bear the burden of blame; we can only hope someday he will.

And I also agree paulk, that as a general rule, separation of powers should be respected and Senators should give the President the benefit of doubt. Alas, this is an exception to that rule.

An exception because we all know that Shrub has abused his "executive power" - to such a degree that many feel there is plenty of smoking guns for either impeachment or a criminal conviction (if we could ever get past the filibusters). That is what makes this "Nixonion" in it's uniqueness in terms of covert planning. Rarely have we seen historically, such lies and manipulation from the executive branch. The evidence was transparent in 02, and even more obvious with every headline saying BushCo manipulated evidence that led us into war.

Yea, Bush was at the wheel; but HRC (and others) gave him keys to the ignition when they knew he was driving drunk (just made that analogy up) :)
