It became clear to me after listening to the presidential and vice presidential debates that the Republicans have had a plan since at least 1994 when they took over both houses of Congress: Weaken the president by going back 20 years or more and find things to bring charges against him. Then, since they have control of Congress, they could hold back the money requested for things they want to accomplish and keep as many bills as possible locked up in committee, never to see the light of day. Now, all you hear from Bush and Cheney is that the Democrats have had eight years and have done nothing. It scares me to think how many people believe in them.
Another thing you hear all the time is that Gore is a liar and can’t tell the truth. I wish someone would remind the electorate about President George Bush looking the public in the eye and telling us that one of his aides went just a few blocks away from the White House and bought crack cocaine. That was later admitted to be a lie. Now if the Democrats had done anything even similar, we would not only have paid the price then but would certainly be hearing about it today.
In my opinion these things far outweigh anything Clinton or any Democrat has done, but you never hear a word about them. They put someone up to lying to Congress under oath. Isn’t that what they impeached President Clinton for? They have proven that they will do anything to keep the power they have had for the last six years.
These people are only interested in the power for their own glorification. Don’t let them win with these kinds of tactics.
