On the other hand, I'll say I'm very concerned when a political leader screws up and it involves wars and the lives of Americans.
Exactly. I don't care who they screw in private, I'm concerned about who they screw in public.
Honestly I don't care that Clinton had an affair. The issue I had was that he lied about it, under oath. Doesn't matter to me how big the lie was, he still lied.
And I have to laugh at how the war is all on Bush. The intelligence was there. The whole friggin world thought there were WMD. I'm not convinced they didn't get moved to Syria or Iran or something anyway. But it's not like Bush pushed a button and it was on. Congress supported it. So if you're going to heap blame on W, at least put some blame with everyone else that okayed the war in the first place.
And I'm not just a Bush defender. I do like the guy, but I don't think he's a very good president.
