Do you believe this to be true? If it is, I suspect some of you have been naughty, naughty people in America. What could you possible have done to deserve the President currently with his finger on the button in the U.S. of A.? In Australia we were until recently led by a mealy mouthed polls watcher, who refused to listen when the people said 'No War!'. We dumped him and his party and now we have another politicain. Is it just the nature of the beast - a politician is a politician is a politician. What do your think?

Here in the states politicians are rated as being less trustworthy than used car salesmen and lawyers... at least that is what I have heard so a politician is a politician is a politician... In the case of Bush, the approval rate for him is now at 28% as he is a very tired lame duck with little to recommend him. There have been so many people wanting him out and still he remains the in Office saying things he should not and doing things he should not... He though is not totally bad. He has done a few things right. I cannot recall them at present though... What did we do to deserve him? What karmas dicated his arrival in our world as our president? One cannot say. He did though arise in our consciousness. He did take our mental space as there were those who loved and hated him and as he appeared on television and in the newspaper and was heard on the radio. And so it is today.
