    I have stated before, and will again, that I feel that all politicians, even the president, even republicans, should have a certain right to privacy.

    If the guy farted in the wrong direction, the righties would throw a fit. It's getting ridiculous guys. Why don't you try and make your side look a bit more intelligent and cut this nonsense out?
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    When they're asleep, sure. Other than that, they're fair game.

    I think that attitude discourages good people from seeking public office, and we are left with just those who put power over things like family. Not a comfortable thought to me.

    Yeah, cuz you know exactly what we on this board personally "showed Bush." Please, do a search here and let me know when you find me saying Bush doesn't deserve privacy on his vacations.

    Well, if we were talking about anyone other than the leader of the free world, I would agree.
