    Now there's idea worthy of consideration - President Jimmy Carter might be a good choice to mediate the impasse.

    Why do you think Carter could mediate anything?

    Who would listen to him?

    He is a very bright and honorable man. You may be too young to remember Carter's success with Israel and Egypt at Camp David. In truth, I would not expect tea baggers to listen to him or anyone else for that matter.

    No I am not too Young, but he is not the same as he was then, and I doubt he had much to do with the end result.

    Why would the democrats listen to him, especially Obama? I am sure Obama would take it as an insult that somebody would even try to be an adult in this matter.

The job is hard enough without some know-it-all in the wings commenting on it. Bush suffered from the insufferable Clinton and Carter commenting on his every move and he swore he'd never do the same no matter who got elected after him. I say, good on him and God bless him for it.
    To those who don't drink the BushII kool-aid, the other presidents' didn't leave office tanking our economy within a curly hair of duplicating 1929, leave a debacle in the desert, and a completely dysfunctional government.

    It is easy for him to keep his word as no one wants to hear any of them.

    Rummy and Chumly discovered that- anyone hear them opine on the current sad state of affairs- they both at one time were quite talkative...

    He didn't forswear comment because of the slings and arrows he suffered from men who know the weight of the Oval Office... he fore swore it because he knows his hubris led him into a debacle of huge proportions. His obsession with the desert sands and faith in some economic 'invisible hand' kept him from acting at the first signs of a collapsing economy.

    But who knows, maybe like Carter, in 20-30 years we will forget the misery, the dead soldiers, the pancaked economy and he can speak without people openly snickering.

    I'd always heard God looks out for fools and Englishmen- all I can say for sure is BushII doesn't have an English accent...

    Not to be uncharitable, but I'm guessing you're pretty much in God's graces after that load of crap.

    GAWD and I made a deal a long time ago.... SHE said I have already been in hell, I get a pass (dunno how you are making it through though, ain't heard you speak )

    As far as crap goes, Dubya left town and NO ONE but comics and political pundits were sad to see him go. His own party hasn't invited him back for anything since.

    they speak volumes in their collective silence...
