    don't know if that's the lowest approval rating ever, though...

      Nixon and there's no way Nixon was anywhere near as dangerous, crooked or incompetent as Bush.

      Nixon deserved to impeached but back then there were a lot more principled politicians.

      I actually can't believe that Bush isn't impeached, removed from office and brought up on charges of treason.

      There's no reasonable person who doesn't see his action as inherently political and criminal. Nothing he does is in good faith and with consideration of what's good for American.

      •  Think about how long the Democrats were in (4+ / 0-)

        the majority, and the fact that the only "scandal" was the Lewinsky affair. Then compare the crap that has occurred in the twelve short years since the rethugs have been in control. Honor and dignity, my ass...

          There was Whitewater, Travelgate... The Clinton administration was one bogus scandal after another. But I totally agree with what you're saying. Just wanted to point out that if you try that argument with one of Bush's base, that's what they'll come back at you with.

      Now: The Republicans own the Federal government. Executive, Legislative, and Supreme Court.

      Then: The Democrats were the majority party in Congress and could stop the bullshit before it became a full-on disaster.
