    If it's true ... Bush, Cheney, Rice, and the whole rats nest need to be serving hard time without parole, reprieve, or pardonability.

    In addition to them, the Wallstreet ****bags who profited from the Bush's Administration's criminal behavior need to serve hard time without parole, reprieve, or pardonability.

    Nope, didn't think so.
    Filibuster proof majorities never stopped any majority from passing legislation.

    Really??? Looks like you haven't been paying attention to politics for the past 20 years.

    The fact that in the last 20 years bills have been passed by majorities - filibuster proof or not - shows that maybe it is you who hasn't been paying attention for the last 20 years.

    Right...because this statement by the same woman who denied any and all knowledge of the CIA tactics at Gitmo is TOTALLY believable.

    Im not suggesting Bush isnt culpable for his part in the current financial mess...but for the dems and specifically Pelosi to continue that "what? no...poor us...it wasnt our fault we didnt know" bull****...well...frankly its getting old...even to the left.

    So the only reason one should ever criticize a president is to prevent them from getting elected/re-elected? I had no idea!

    Funny how you forgot to mention that
    Can you sight what specifically the democrat congress did to cause the down turn? If you can't, you're making a causal relationship fallacy.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The only reason someone should criticize the President is when their criticism is logically consistent and factually-based; it helps if it's not hypocritical, too.

    Can you cite what special King-like powers the US president has to write and declare law and policy/procedure?
