What to Say?

There's so much that's happened in the past 24-hours in the news that I feel at a loss to comment on anything. Two quick observations:

1. I'm scared to death that, with the recent Hamas victories in the Palestinian Parliament, the conservative Christian right will become even more galvanized. (I'm scared of a Hamas majority for other reasons, too, but this is actually a big deal to me.)

2. I'm tired of hearing President Bush tell me (through press conferences) that certain questionable actions he undertakes are "what the American people expect [him] to do" in order to protect the American people. Clearly, with half of the country expressing severe displeasure at his policies, he is not doing "what the American people expect him to do."

  1. re: #2:

    Speaking as someone who grew up in a Republican home and now votes even more conservatively, I agree.

    You might want to check out Unclaimed Territory -- the guy's doing a nice job deconstructing the NSA/FISA debacle.

  2. Thanks for taking the time to check out the site. Clearly, we come from different perspectives. I hope that I've been fair to other positions (although I confess I'm not terribly familiar with the Constitution Party) in anything I've said.
