    Whitlock would just say he was working his corners.

    What sent me over the edge this week regarding that waste of sperm is some assclown editor at Time, who decided to screw up a wonderful package on Teddy Roosevelt by putting in a Rove essay on why TR was such a great president.

    Apparently, it was completely oblivious to this in-need-of-a-BJ-and-history lesson editor that from the environment to the role of Big Business, Rove has schemed and plotted to prop up an administration that is completely antithetical to what TR stood for on everything.

    Everything that is, save an inflexible level of conviction -- probably TR's biggest flaw.

    Please don't smear Reagan's legacy by comparing him, in any way, to Fredo.

    Yeah, Reagan lost brain cells towards the end. But that guy two minutes before death had 10 times the brains Fredo's got now.

    birdscribe, i'm with you. that was painful. time did a great package on TR. why the fuck they had to ruin it with rove is beyond me. whether you're a democrat or republican, surely the time editors have to understand that rove is such a polarizing figure. if you have to choose a republican to write an op-ed, choose an elected official who at least was chosen for his office by the people.
  5. "The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."
    Theodore Roosevelt -- May 7, 1918

    Rove has compared Bush to TR in the past, by the way. And Putsch compared himself to Lincoln.

    Around the league this marnin' --

    Reagan was the most popular president in the lifetime of anyone who is younger than 43.

    Trounced, are you into leather and chains and masochism?

    What a moronic post.

    His landslide elections get factored in.

    It's more than his popularoty the day he left office... to me.

    Not taking sides, but isn't there a difference between popularity and approval rating?
