The only conclusion I can come to is that there are those on both sides of the political aisle that would rather this issue went away as to have an Attorney General publicly state that it is torture would probably find a few in Congress facing charges as well as those in the administration.

Again, it boggles the mind.
Oh I agree with you, ALL of Washington right now is mind boggling

What's done is done.
( Bush was a stuffed suit anyways )
Next time around let's give the candidates a basic math test.
The winner gets a set of hairy stones to do what's right.

Ah, another Clinton apologist. I guess you are comfortable with "techincally correct."

And to call someone "that woman" who he just had intimate relations with is really beyond excusable. What a cad, and a liar.

I guess it depends on what the meaning of the word "is" is?

No, no sympathy at all. It was fairly obvious to anyone with ears, a brain and eyes that Bush had the intellect of a cheesy Dorrito. You only have to listen to his speeches. He can barely string a sentence together without saying something idiotic or completely inappropriate.


I would have thought the Republican party had far better, and more intelligent candidates. I am a liberal but still am rather bemused that the Republican party ( with many brilliant ( if misguided minds) chose this baboon to represent their views and guide the policies of the Nation. The US is a great and wonderful country and quite frankly Americans deserve better than a moron who has made his Nation the laughing stock of the world and destroyed any good reputation it may have had. The mind boggles.....

Who would rest their country's future and good name in his lap not just once but twice ?

right and wrong- lol- they have no concept of that anymore in D.C. Who can even keep track of the lies that are spoon-fed to the public daily.

Its sickening.

I really don't care if anyone has sympathy for me or not, I'm not looking for it. I voted for Bush, and he turned out to be a douche. I didn't vote for Al Gore, and he turned out to be a douche. I didn't vote at all in 2004 because it was like voting for having either salt or rubbing alcohol poured on a wound.

We should all quit playing for the "teams" and start demanding better choices for candidates. Sadly, the political machine of DC has grown so big that we will likely never get to choose who THE PEOPLE want, but rather, choose from who the puppetmasters put on stage for us to begrudgingly vote for.

I'll vote for Ron Paul, and if he is not in the GE, I will vote for any other candidate that is not mainstream and still has a few principles left. Right now, the front 3 on both sides look like mannequins.

I agree that we need to focus on the best candidate, not any given party candidate. It is immaterial, now, whether one voted for the President, or his opponent(s)--it's the past and the past can't be undone but examined, and when examined used as a guide for the future.

Can we pledge to look to the future?

First of all both the 2000 and the 2004 elections were stolen by the Bushistas.
