Still debating about which POTUS is to blame for the current mess? Why? I already told you that Congress had a lot more to do with it than any president, but I guess you've ignored me, or didn't believe me. We expect the president to have dictatorial powers, and, indeed, we're busy giving them to him. Take a look at this thread (indefinite detention without a trial?) as a glaring example.
But, anyway, it was Bush, Cheney, and McCain who got a freshman senator still wet behind the ears elected. If he gets reelected, it will be the good work of Perry, or perhaps Gingrich. We'll see just how this rather interesting election plays out.
