There is a trend that has been going on for quite some time now. That is the tendency to openly trash the POTUS based solely on party lines. It's so obvious among die-hard liberals right now to automatically disagree with ANYTHING President Bush supports. It's so predictable. C'mon. The man is our President. He didn't get into office because he is stupid. He may not have the best communication skills, but give him some credit. I've learned to think independently about issues. Things are not always black and white. I agree with the President on the importance of fighting terrorism. I don't agree with his stance on stem cell research. There was much I liked about President Clinton. I thought he was a great speaker and had many good ideas. The Monica Lewinsky scandal was a tempest in a teapot. Clinton's private life didn't matter to me. What did matter was his stand on getting Bin Laden. He let him go. There were many opportunities to nab the terrorist and Clinton didn't pursue them. He was weak on defense. Clinton's idea of fighting terrorism, even after the first World Trade Center bombing, was to lob missiles into baby milk factories. This may very well have led to 9/11 and the mess we're in now. There are good and bad aspects to almost every person on this planet. I try to see our leaders as fallable human beings and not superhuman. I think both Republicans and Democrats tend to forget that sometimes in their partisan fever.
