Outrageous Indications of Decay and Decline

What does it say about the poisonous state of our political system when 35% of Democrats believe that an American president knew in advance of a mass-murder, terrorist attack that killed 3000 people, mostly Americans? What does it say about our educational system and the state of our society? We are almost at the point where the only thing that can save us is a series of terrorist attacks so horrendous that they clearly threaten our very existence. Perhaps then we will pull together as a people, support our elected leadership and understand that the Muslim religion is under the control of zealots who believe its teachings and intend to carry them out.

Rosie is going; Imus is gone, but the cancer remains.

Rasmussen Reports, May 04, 2007 (Excerpt)

"Democrats in America are evenly divided on the question of whether George W. Bush knew about the 9/11 terrorist attacks in advance. Thirty-five percent (35%) of Democrats believe he did know, 39% say he did not know, and 26% are not sure.

Republicans reject that view and, by a 7-to-1 margin, say the President did not know in advance about the attacks. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 18% believe the President knew and 57% take the opposite view.

Overall, 22% of all voters believe the President knew about the attacks in advance. A slightly larger number, 29%, believe the CIA knew about the attacks in advance.

White Americans are less likely than others to believe that either the President or the CIA knew about the attacks in advance. Young Americans are more likely than their elders to believe the President or the CIA knew about the attacks in advance."


When I was younger, “Time” Magazine was a respected periodical. It now appears that it intends to descend below “People” Magazine for insipid coverage of celebrities enjoying their 15 minutes of fame. Hugh Sidey is turning over in his grave.

Time leaves Bush off their 100 most influential list [Tom Gross]

Time magazine's new list of the world’s influential people is as unreliable as its news. Most surprisingly of all, the George W. Bush-haters at Time have left the current U.S. president off their list of 100 people who shape the world (May 14 cover story ).

Included on the list, however, are Osama bin Laden and Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei, as well as Barak Obama, Hilary Clinton, Al Gore, and the leaders of various other countries. But not apparently of Israel. Ehud Olmert is excluded, whereas Israel’s ineffectual, perhaps soon to be sacked foreign minister Tzipi Livni is included.

This is a small point and might even be petty, but I notice more and more Democrats and democrat talking heads saying "this" president. It's meant to be condescending, insulting...even dismissive. It implies he is not THE president or OUR president, "just" this president.
I don't like it. I would not like it if it were Republicans referring to one of the Democrat presidents.
