And you expect them to come in and establish justice here in the US?
As much as I dislike BushCo, I don't/don't want to see it happening.

So what? How did that threaten you personally?

And since when do you have so much respect for U.N. decrees and resolutions? Like 'em all or leave 'em all.

Do I expect it? No, nor would I welcome it. But true leaders lead by example. 'Do as I say, not as I do' just doesn't cut it.

Give her a chance. If she is not delivering, I will be the first to bitch like I have about GW.

We have to start expecting more from our elected officials and make sure they are reminded they work for us, not the other way around.

A trial and jail time for the Busch gang works for me – there’s been enough bloodshed.
