If a Democrat were prez right now

Imagine a Democrat in the White House right now,

Imagine Carter or Clinton presiding over the same mess we are now in:

disastrous deficits,

an untenable and mismanaged war,

almost 20% of our nation’s children living in poverty,

environmental carelessness,

a president who has broken four international treaties,

new jobs that replace outsourced jobs with salaries that average $9000 less per year,

borrowing from Social Security to pay for the famous “tax cut”,

payoffs to political cronies,

an unstable economy,

sexual abuse of adults in POW prisons,

sexual abuse of children in POW prisons,

a foreign policy that alienates us from our allies,

trillions in unfunded mandates that threaten Social Security,

Medicare and education…

Imagine how the “so-called liberal media” and the pundits would react if a Democrat had been in charge with all this going on!

A Democrat who did to the country
what Bush has done in the past four years
would be raked over the coals nightly,
and would be looking at losing the fall election in a record landslide.

why am i not surprised?

the administration announced right after the Democratic national Convention that there was a hightened terror alert. they named specific financial buildings as targets for the very, very, very, near future.
now the Times reports that this "intelligence" predates 2001.

the democrats in convention

well, the democratic convention is over...and in the midst of the fru-fru and hoopla some substantial things were said and some important issues were addressed.
but the broadcast networks decided none of that was newsworthy...people didn't need to know what the democrats thought.
they spend three minutes discussing Kerry's hair but won't report what he says about healthcare.
they will have a feature on how Edwards was a trial lawyer, but ignore what the democrats are saying about workplace safety law.
they will focus on the "storm" around Theresa Heinz Kerry, but will not report on what her husband says about education or foreign policy.
hmmmm and these "journalists" see themselves as guardians of America's freedoms? we really oughta quit referring to them as journalists....image vendors maybe, or just infotainment hawkers....snakeoil salesmen?
