  •  I agree that moderate is not what clinton did but (0+ / 0-)

    it was still lumped into moderate and this is WHY it got a bad name.
    People confused true moderate thinking on policy with Clinton going center right and so, now there is a stigma to this.
    Granted some was the result of the era and being in the middle of a conservative rise but, some was due to Clinton's own weaknesses.
    As for punishing Bush and his cronies, I highly doubt it will be broadcast by Obama for awhile until they see if there are prosecutable crimes and if the case will stick.

    •  You have got to be kidding (0+ / 0-)

      until they see if there are prosecutable crimes and if the case will stick.

      It would take an utter blind, deaf, moron not see prosecutable crimes and any serrious honest prosecution will stick like glue. Not Prosecutable crimes and charges that won't stick WILL NOT wash bet on it!

      People did not vote for change to hear that spin. The Bush era criminals will be punished or we will have to admit there is no justice or democracy in this country and need take serrious remedial actions to cure both problems. I sick of hearing apologies and excuses for the past two years as to why justice cannot be served and with a Democratic Administration and a solid majority in both houses there will be NO excuse or reason for not punishing crooks and traitors except that there is little or no difference between the parties, Then as I say we need serious reform probably starting with state constitutional conventions to make amendments and reforms the Congress has refused to make, and if that is blocked real revolution of the 1776  sort. This 40 year-old farce of a Constructional Democracy has gone on about 35 years too long.
