19. Oh, I agree with you as far as Dumbya is concerned; however, I have
never felt he did anything but try to read the speeches written for him. They wouldn't even let him out near the press his first term unless he had something already prepared. Now this term, they've let him out a little bit, and he has performed miserably as expected.

I always have felt Bush was nothing but the name that got the Republicans in control in the White House. Everyone he appointed were men who worked with his dad and/or Reagan. Why?

I may be giving them more credit for intelligence then they deserve; however, everything they do is done for a reason, and the reason is always to get their way whether it is against the law or not.

I feel all of these older men in this administration, and even Bush, are so vindictive, they are out to destroy anyone that does not back them in all of their decisions. Just like they ruined a woman's 20-year career and even possibly have jeopardized her and her family's lives.

Several of these men have signed the mission statement of PNAC, a Think Tank that was mainly created by William Kristol and Jeb Bush in Washington, and have all the information posted online. Below is a snippet of their "Statement of Principals."

This is their "Statement of Principals" posted on their site

Our aim is to remind Americans of these lessons and to draw their consequences for today. Here are four consequences:

we need to increase defense spending significantly if we are to carry out our global responsibilities today and modernize our armed forces for the future;

we need to strengthen our ties to democratic allies and to challenge regimes hostile to our interests and values;

we need to promote the cause of political and economic freedom abroad;

we need to accept responsibility for America's unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles.

They tried to get Clinton to start the war with Iraq in 1997. They've been chomping at the bit for years to get into Iraq and 9/11 gave them their excuse.

Well, I'm probably telling you things you already know.

I just cannot get rid of the feeling that this Miers withdrawal and the possible indictments are not connected in some way. The timing is strange.
