I have often said that we are what we are. No more of less different than we have been in the past. We argue that we fight for freedom when in fact, all we do now and have ever done is fight to protect the leader we like or to hinder the leader we despise. To protect $$$ and energy flow. We fight and we will keep on fighting because we have not learned any other way. Why do Liberals believe the cycle will change when Bush is gone? It won't because America loves bully leaders...Americans will never settle for passive Presidents...it does not matter how right or wrong we are. Perhaps a Carter will slip in here and there, but it's only for a rest. We will put up with FLAWS, because we value tough. TOUGH protects sins of the past that could lead to our destruction. We could change but who would buy it??? Will we change? Unless average Joe U.S.A. citizen can successfully run for Congress/Senate/President I highly doubt it. Even if we could, there are tried and true methods of changing So who is toughest Hillary? Rice? McCain? Gore? Romney? Giuliani? Giuliani or McCain beat Hillary or Gore. Jeb Bush loses to everybody. Why Giuliani or McCain...simply...they are tougher...John Wayne Politics 101.
