Or are they being sufficiently tough on the Decider In Chief as he flits from one party to another as our soldiers and Iraqis are dying in great numbers every day? What do you guys think? Do you think the media might be a little harder on a Dem president by now?

in a very ugly old conflict US intervened. Still looking for the media kudos (in case you're stumped - Clinton, Kosovo) And I mean, kudos from either political side...

6. A Dem prez would have been impeached and jailed long ago.
Right after 9/11 was botched.

7. a democratic president would have been impeached ages ago
for, say, putting on a sock and a shoe and a sock and a shoe
instead of a sock and a sock and a shoe and a shoe.

8. Yes. A Dem showing Bush-like indecision would be impeached.

10. mild understatement, that. . .
The RW Wurlitzer would be in full throated wail. . .They'd be calling for immediate removal from office for "lack of administrative ability". . ."too weak and indecisive". . . "dangerous to national security". . . "emboldening (yeesh I hate that word) the enemies". . .

It would be the first thing in all the network teases at every commercial break.. It would be the subject of every right wing shill on Faux and CNN. . Malkin & Coulter would be interviewing each other in primetime. . .

Leno would be cracking wise. .

Gawd it would be fierce.

11. Just take a look at how they are still trying to hang Clinton for
Edited on Mon Jan-01-07 04:32 PM by EST
what he did and did not do, as well as volumes of purely imaginary crap.
President Carter, too, spent a miserable four years with a near total lack of cooperation by the publiclowns, as well as noxious activism in the effort to delegitimize his presidency.

As with Clinton, they were thoroughly exercised that he should have the temerity to win that office when it so clearly should have remained in republican hands.

Everything was fuel for their anger, from the way he smiled to his "born again" christianity.

14. The media would have eaten a Democrat alive long ago
A Democrat would have been taken to task be the media just for the lies let alone the war and stalling on any decisions that would change the course in said war.
The media would have been calling for impeachment, not protecting them from it.

15. Of course not...
We all know how much Ken Star and the compassionate conservative right-wing neonuts just LOVED Bill Clinton.

this was his own personal life, only he and his wife's business. Look what happened when a plane accidentally bombed an "aspirin" factory...imagine a Dem with this illegal imperialistic invasion and complete & total fuck ups?
