Resign, You Shameless &#@*%@!'s

At this point in their presidency, the only thing George Bush and Dick Cheney could do to make me happy is resign immediately. Every day they serve is another day of disgrace and another day of disaster for the republican party. I would love to see both of them bankrupt and in jail, since they've pretty much done that to America.

I'd be fine with President Pelosi as a caretaker until next January. Maybe she could start to unwind some of the idiocy.

p.s. It may be that Obama's minister will cost Obama the presidency. There are certain things an American should not ever say, and he said some of them. I just don't know how Obama can distance himself far enough from those unfortunate remarks. SO sad.

Rev. Wright said some angry, inappropriate things, but the press is cherry-picking remarks made over the last decade. It's possible that 99% of what he has said over the course of his lifetime is reasonable and peaceful.

This is an era where everything everybody ever said or did is recorded forever. Somehow, we're going to have to find way to judge people in their entirety, not just from sound-bites provided by their enemies.

As for Bush-Cheney, I would like to believe they are simply rogue elements, but I don't think they could have accomplished the evil things they've done without a lot of support and complicity. I am not confident that new elections will change anything.

Your blog was actually the first I had heard of the scrutiny on Rev. Wright. Scary fro two reasons: (1) as thomaslb said, I really dislike the way people are judged from single comments/incidents. (2) I've been in the preacher biz for 10 years and have at latest count 364 sermons. I'd hate to have them all picked over in an effort to hurt one of my parishioners. Rev. Wright has been preaching for over 30 years.

I found this informative:

It is amazing how the standard against which these politicians are held. It used to be something one said in public. Then something said in private. Now something that one's supporter says in public. Is the lesson that one can't align with someone one disagrees with? If so, we've reached a sad point.
