Gazette opinion: Bush hasn't earned 2nd term in office - billingsgazette.com


Gazette opinion: Bush hasn't earned 2nd term in office - billingsgazette.com


The Billings Gazette came out in favor of John Kerry over baby bush today. That's apparently the newspaper's official endorsement. I think it's a good idea but I have to be a little cynical about it. With the poll showing that Montana is a safe state for Bush, it won't do any good but it does give the Gazette a chance to say it is non-partisan. It would have been more effective if the paper had chosen Brian Schweitzer for governor over Bob Brown. Brown will just be another empty figure in the state's high office who will not do anything except ride out the storm.

The Gazette also blew it when they endorsed Rehberg for the House again. Granted he's a Billings native, but he always votes with baby bush and the party and never seems to think much of any Montanans but those on the far right which is where he stands most of the time. In one of the last votes of this Congress before the election recess he voted against having an independent investigator look at allegations against Tom DeLay. Texans use the power the voters give them in the most ham-handed way, no matter which party (I go back to Lyndon), and expect to get away with it. And Republicans all across the country will let their people get away with going against the Constitution. Nixon did it, Reagan did it, Bush I did it and now Bush II. Nixon and Bush II deserved and deserve to be impeached and convicted of crimes against the Constitution. But for Republicans, morality seems to begin and end in the bedroom. It doesn't seem to exist in the living room and kitchens when abuse or domination are in play.

Republicans morality is only in the bedroom? Hmmm - haven't you gotten over Clintons impeachment yet?

Perhaps Democrats are more moral? Maybe some of the Hollywood-types who object to animals being treated badly, yet support abortion-on-demand?

I'd like to hear more about Democratic morality, please explain, using specific examples.

Let's just say that there is immorality on both sides. And, can we all just admit for once that both parties have some good to them?

I don't agree that Bush went against the constitution though, not at all. He went against the UN. That is a very different thing. And, if you have read anything lately, you will find that he was right in doing so. There were weapons, and Al Queda, in Iraq. Russia and other's helped move them before the envasion.

So, you may dislike Bush, but he really didn't do anything unconstitutional.

I hope he didn't do anything rash, as he watched John Kerry go down to defeat.

Eric: I didn't do anything rash. Only the voters did. We real Americans voted for our country. Those who voted for baby bush voted for a new theocracy with an imperial bias. If you read the posts I made today, you'll see what I mean. Our country is in a more dangerous situation than we were with Richard Nixon. If we get a strict construction view of the Constitution in congress, baby bush will be impeached quicker than Nixon for immorality and anti-American activities. The 10 commandment believers who supported him are, indeed, the most immoral of Americans. The moral religious crowd supports the highest commandment pronounced by the Christ, not the immorally rigid rules of Yahweh. It's why the so-call religious right is neither religious or right nor moral. They hate people, but love control.

Avenger, I voted Thursday and I've been busy since.
