Conservative Paul Mulshine of Newhouse News wants Bush to step down
For party and country, Bush should step aside




All Washington is talking about whether the man responsible for screwing up the Iraq war should resign. I think he should. Not Donald Rumsfeld. George Bush. I think it's time for Bush to echo the words of that other president from Texas who bungled a war and then went before the country to announce, "I shall not seek and I will not accept the nomination of my party for another term as your president."

The reporters will ask why he's resigning. "I need to spend more time with my family," he can say. That's the traditional excuse a politician gives when he must leave a job that is above his abilities.

This is certainly the case with George W. Like that other president from Texas before him, Bush turned out to be an incompetent in the field of foreign affairs. Lyndon Johnson at least had the excuse that the Vietnam crisis was thrust upon him and he had to react one way or another. But Bush chose to initiate a war in Iraq. It's always flattering to remake the world in your own image - as long as you don't have to do the fighting.

3. President Dick 'Lurch' Cheney comes out of the shadow gov't
to become President Cheney in the White House ... who will take his spot? ... who will threaten blocs of votes to get their person on the 'ticket'?

Cheney-Delay (of course, Cheney reclaims Wyoming as his 'home');

Dick Cheney-Tom Ridge?? the ultimate SS team;

these are scary times

would we be asking: are you better off than you were 4 hours ago?

"Bush turned out to be an incompetent in the field of foreign affairs." he's no ace domestically either

7. Won't be Cheney. If * resigns I think a replacement is chosen
at the convention. My guess is that it would be McCain. He's the only one that would hold a snowball's chance in hell of beating Kerry.

8. hi: wryter2000
Thank you! Where do I get a wave gif?

Take a quick look at this, the (Con)servatives don't even know who Bush is. We are looking at democrat Landslide this year.

..


Most Americans long ago stopped believing that George W. Bush is what he claimed to be during the 2000 presidential campaign: a compassionate conservative.

But is George W. Bush a conservative at all?

The answer might seem self-evident to progressives who have spent the past four years recoiling at the reactionary agenda the Bush Administration has advanced on everything from the environment to the courts, global warming to gay marriage. But while few people would confuse George W. Bush for a liberal, whether the policies he's championed qualify as traditionally conservative is by no means clear.
