The Current Occupant, who is two years and three months away from retirement, was quoted last week as saying, 'They can say what they want about me, but at least I know who I am, and I know who my friends are.' A pathetic admission of defeat for one who has owned all three branches of government for the past six years ---- did he seek power so that he could attain self-knowledge? If so, the price is too high. The beloved country endures a government that merges blithering corruption with murderous incompetence. .....Republicans haven't tolerated much dissent in their ranks, the voice of conscience has not been welcome......It's discouraging seeing so many people go so wrong all at once. It makes you question the idea that each of us has unlimited potential for good.'www.truthout.org/docs_2006/110606R.shtml
