That 70s Show for real

Here we go.... John Dean of Watergate fame was on the Hill at the end of the week and the Republicans were shouting him down, as he said that President Bush's actions were more harmful to the nation than anything Nixon did.... And at those same hearings

"

"We know the president broke the law," Leahy said. "Now we need to know why."

The committee's three-hour hearing focused on a censure resolution introduced by Sen. Russell Feingold (D-Wis.). Leahy and Feingold were the only Democrats to speak, whereas five Republicans defended Bush to varying degrees, sometimes so vigorously that witnesses could not finish their sentences.

The Constitution authorizes a president to take necessary steps -- including warrantless wiretaps -- to protect the country from would-be attackers, said Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah). "I can only hope that this constitutionally suspect and, I believe, inflammatory attempt to punish the president for leading this war on terror will not weaken his ability to do so," he said."

This seems eerily familar, you tell me what year we are in gas prices are skyrocketing, because of instability in the Middle East... The current administration is being dogged on the Hill because of domestic spying among other things... The Big 3 automakers are in financial difficulties... The US miltiary is possibly in an unwinnable war... and the American public is losing faith in the ability of its government.... There are serious concerns about the environment...Does anyone else think that repeating the 1970s is not such a good idea?

As you can see there are some seriously troubling similarities between then and now... I never thought I would or could say this but, I think Nixon was a better President than the one we have now. That being said, the American people have the ability to right this ship, and it is up to us to do so...We get what we vote for....


Continue to work to make the world better than it was yesterday...

More later
