Responsibility

   The one thing that I have always detested is hypocrisy that is seen in those people who say one thing and do another. Conservatives have for years talked about personal responsibility, but ever since the came to power they have played the blame game. Never once has Mr. Bush taken the responsibility for his failures. All the right has done is to blame President Clinton. Truth be told if they had listened to the advice and used the plans laid down by the Clinton White House they may have been able to avoid the terrorist attack on 9/11.

   If there is any guilt to be assigned to the Bush White House for 9/11 it would be for their hubris. They were so proud to the point of arrogance that they considered themselves as the political adults and the Clinton people as children. They did not want to hear or have association with anything that was touched by the Clinton administration. They wanted to do it all their way and what is so appalling is that they cannot now take the responsibility for doing it their way. Below you will see the clips of the interview of President Clinton of Fox in three parts and then one clip of Keith Olbermann On Clinton Fox ordeal.

    Olbermann was right on the money, Fox and the Neocons have been blaming Clinton for everything and it's pretty disgusting! That Chris Wallace was so smug I had a hard time controlling myself. You know that if Olbermann was interviewing Bush and acted like that the rightwing media would eat him alive.
    Now to what Marty wrote; “They were so proud to the point of arrogance that they considered themselves as the political adults and the Clinton people as children.” This has got to be the most arrogant White House ever! Doesn't the Bible say that pride goes before a fall? Maybe that is why the Republicans did so badly in this last election. I too would like to see Bush take responsibility like Clinton did, but I don't think Bush has ever admitted to failing. Thank you for the clips, I had wanted to see this but didn't know where to look.

    I think that the time is running out for these wingnut lies. I'm sick of hearing the talk about personal responsibility when it comes to poor people. It's just like all the talk about welfare if the person getting it is a poor signal mother being bad but if it goes to a rich corporation that's ok. I'm sick of the lies like God is somehow on the side on the Republicans. That's what I like about this site; God is not in either party.

       I realize that most of what is said is purely political spin. I also will acknowledge that such spin is found on both sides, but any who would use religion for their political ends does take the name of the Lord in vain. Even though I have said in the past that Jesus is a Liberal that does not imply that He would have been a Democrat had He lived in America. I merely meant that His life supported the Liberal principles that reached out to, well as He said of His Ministry:

    THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME,
    BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR.
    HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES,
    AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND,
    TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED,
    TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.” Lk. 4: 18 -19

       It is in this way that I say that He was a Liberal, but I never have said or even implied that being anything other than a Liberal was less than Christian. It is my belief that the ones who are trying to divide the people of God over politics do not really know the Lord.
