  • I'll live with it just like I do with every other election I've voted in. Politicians lie, that's why they're politicians. They don't get where they are by telling the truth.

  • One thing to remember is that whatever the President WANTS to do , there are very few things he / she CAN do without having to get Congress to go along with it. Used to be expected that the President appointed the Supreme Court justices, and the Senate approved them. That ended with Bork. ... Bush's plans for handling Iraq were severely hampered by the sensational media frenzy (ratings ! ratings ! ) and by Congress members, etc. ... So what other responsibilities of the Executive Branch are there? What can we actually expect a President to carry out when Congress is bent on preventing it? Yet the media still blames the President for problems - remember how the media blamed Bush for New Orleans' disaster and ignored the local corruption that was REALLY at fault?

  • I would think it's business as usual. Politicians are always talking out both sides of their mouth, and rarely, if ever, do they keep their campaign promises.
