The Times of London has a nice little article up based on an interview with President Bush. In it, he sounds more human and compassionate than he has at any point in his presidency. It’s pretty impressive the power that looking like a douche bag for all of history can have on someone, I guess. I just wish he had come to these sorts of realizations earlier before things got to this point.
I personally hate democrats and republicans equally. I also try to hope for the best every election. I give the pres a pass on the recession that hit at the beginning of his presidency since it was the Clinton Boom Years economic bubble popping, but pretty much everything after that is exactly what he wanted.
I can’t believe that after six years of his presidency with a republican controlled Congress and having a general idea of the republican utopia, that the country wasn’t any thing of the sort. Or either the republican vision is so flawed that it cannot ever exist.
How can there be no position for smaller government that minds its own business and leaves people to live their lives they way they want to? Why do we only get to choose between “big govenment” democrats and “big government” republicans? Why would no one stand up with those of us that said, “Enough is enough!”?
Now we are left with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. Is it any wonder I am going Libertarian?
