How are we going to take care of Iraq after we leave, what a horrible mess we have made that country. As of now the economy seems good, but how long and how are we going to pay China back? Where oh Where is a Jefferson, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Washington? This is one time this nation needs to come together and vote the future of our children and grandchildren. If we could only impeach a whole administration.
Your are so wrong about the next president being blamed for anything, it will always be Bushs fault!!! 5 10 15 years from now it will somehow always be Bushs fault!! Everyone is now off the hook! Because it will be Bushs fault.

We're actually in a "representative democratic republic". aka "representative democracy".

i.e., we live in a democracy. I honestly wasn't going to say anything, but, lol.

It's been Clinton's fault for the last how many years? Every president serves at least 4 years in office, and at least twice that as a patsy.

People still blame Nixon for things, lol. That's the way the good ole USA works.

WIDE? no. In fact, to use the phrase "majority of voters" would mean that Al Gore should have won in 2000. Remember? He won the popular vote. As for 2004, I barely paid attention. I knew the chimp would win, lol. I didn't need to frustrate myself any more than I already was. I just voted for Mr. Muenster and went home.

And we know that Republicans would NEVER blame a former president for things that happened years and years ago...

We have to start transitioning off of oil and onto alternative energy ASAP, for a variety of reasons - global warming, peak oil (which will assuredly happen some time in the 2010s or, if we're lucky, in the 2020s), and of course national security. Moving off of oil would deprive quite a few nasty regimes and individuals of the funding they use to do their nasty deeds.

I wish I could have been a fly on the wall during Cheney's energy policy committee meetings... I would have loved to hear what happened during those...

Speaking of which, why doesn't Congress start investigating those meetings? I think it is time that they did. We might even discover why we are in Iraq in the first place.

Yet the alternatives, coal and nuclear are unpopular. The USA should limit it's oil consumption to what it produces. Nuclear can provide electrical power and coal can provide gas and liquid fuels, as well as heat. Coal fueled the industrial revolution, and instead of adding to our problems, I say NUKE EM! Nuclear would add thousands of good paying jobs to replace those lost to outsourcing. Who cares about Bush, just eliminate the federal reserve!

There are other alternatives that don't present the same problems, such as biofuel, solar power, wind power, etc. Carter allocated a considerable amount of money into developing these technologies which Reagan cut out of the budget. Just another reason why I think Ronnie's presidency was a disaster for America.

Nuclear power would be undesirable for safety and security reasons.
