This reminds me of a bumper sticker: "Nixon is no longer The Worst President Ever!"

-- by Thomas Leavitt

We can't think of a president who has gone to the American people more often than George W. Bush has to ask them to forget about things like democracy, judicial process and the balance of powers — and just trust him. We also can't think of a president who has deserved that trust less.

This is how the New York Times editorial board choose to lead off their editorial entitled: The Trust Gap. An extraordinary statement, in my opinion, coming from the country's "newspaper of record", the epitome of the "mainstream" press... the editorial makes it clear that they believe that the President and his administration cannot be trusted, at any level. I wonder when they'll make the next logical conclusion from this, and call for impeachment?

When will the NY Times call for impeachment? Probably never. Statements like they made in that editorial are just going to be dismissed as the "liberal press" sounding off anyway,.Even though they're normally about as liberal as Louie XIV.

It just happens that I just sent off a blast to the GOP because they dared ask me for my thoughts about how the party's doing. They actually cited Teddy Roosevelt's "Trust busting" as an example of Republican ideals, so you can guess what I said.

One the eve of president's day it's good to remember what is lacking in the current one, but if I discuss that at the proper length I'd use up an exorbitant amount of bandwidth. Having said that, I remind myself that Nixon's successor,and the last unelected president, Jerry Ford, was at least a hundred times better than this one. That was then, I guess.
