“I Will Restore Honor and Dignity to the White House”

So said George W. Bush during the 2000 Campaign:

What I am saying is America wants somebody to restore honor and dignity to the White House. That is what America is looking for.

How’s he done, y’all?

Remember that conservatives are saying that, hey, Clinton did it too, in pardoning Marc Rich at the end of his term. Remember, Marc Rich’s lawyer was one named Scooter Libby.

This is the “honor and dignity” of the Bush White House. Pardon those who have damning information about your secret combinations so that your own crimes and lies are hidden still. That’s their honor and dignity. Really, America, do you need further evidence that this is the most crooked and worst administration in the history of our fine nation? Richard Nixon has nothing on George W. Bush. When all the facts come out, we’re going to look fondly at the innocent days of the Nixon administration.

  1. I have to admit that I voted for Bush in 2000 because I was disgusted with the way things had gone under Clinton. I was particularly annoyed with the repeated use by the Democrats of the phrase “doesn’t rise to the level of an impeachable offense” during the impeachment of Clinton. I thought that by having Cheney in office (not so much with Bush), there would be adults in the White House who would comport themselves well and bring back that missing honor and dignity.

    Now I’m doubly disappointed. The “adults” have run roughshod over the Constitution and the concepts of human rights and have made a mockery of what the Founding Fathers had in mind for this nation, IMO.

    At least it was clear by 2004 that another vote for Bush would be a vote for tyranny. Bush and Cheney are just the latest examples of how presumed authority leads to unrighteous dominion. Congress is to blame for letting Bush and Cheney run roughshod over the Constitution by not enforcing the original Constitutional limits to the powers of the President. I get the feeling that the leaders in Congress know that any attempted impeachment of Bush will just end up looking like a massive case of hypocrisy on their part, because they were the ones who have let him get away with everything he’s already done.

    Nothing will improve in D. C. until everyone in office understands the limits of the power that is granted to them under the Constitution. And taht document has been trampled so much since the Civil War War Against Southern Independence that the words are largely indecipherable at this point. I don’t hold much hope for any improvement any time soon, because all three branches of government have lost their way. Who will show it to them, and who will listen?

  2. The words “Civil War” are supposed to have been the beneficiaries of a tag…

  3. They were never “adults” to begin with. I knew there were serious problems with the Bush administration from the start. He called himself the “outsider” coming to Washington to clean it up, but yet, he had the full support of all the insiders. All the power brokers in the background supported him. K Street was behind Bush. That should have been warning enough.

    Never ever trust what comes out of the mouth of a politician. Never ever. Take it with a huge grain of salt.
