A devoted pro-republican friend of mine slapped me in the face today with the statement that GW Bush should be impeached. I thought he was kidding, as we go around and around with our differing points of view, but he wasn't joking. He says between the corruption, poor fiscal planning, spying, and illogical war he just cannot defend this president anymore. He thinks Bush represents no traditional republican values and would like a third choice in the next presidential election.
I wonder if there are more out there like him? I am amazed the republicans could lose a follower like him. Are the republicans now as poorly run as the democrats?
I admit that there are some troubling issues with President Bush. I doubt that there is an electable politician with whom I agree on everything. Choices are not made in a vacuum; but always in a real election. As bad as Bush may be, he is still my choice over the candidate offered by the leftist fringe of the democrat party.
Now to realy confuse you--IF the '08 election comes dowm to McCain vs Hillary--I would probably vote for Hillary. Despite her recent move toward the center, I recognize her as a life-long Leftist. McCain, on the otherhand shows no allegiance to any set of values that I can discern. Him I do not trust. At least with Hillary, I know what to expect.

Now you all know that if the subject of impeachment comes up,the Bush administration will make a law against it calling it unpatriotic[:D]

There are very few 'true' republicans left. Bush certainly has never exercised any fiscal constraint nor worked for a smaller government.

Personally I know very few Bush fans. But I do know lots of people who feel that he was the lesser of two evils and still feel that way.

If the democrats had nominated a decent candidate they probably would have one the white house.

A McCain vs. Hitlary presidential election is a nightmare. I would be torn on who to vote aginst.
