Losing the public trust

George W. Bush’s administration may be the most venal, indifferent and lying administration in the history of the Republic. Any administration that would lie us into a war, and continue lying after our children begin coming home maimed or in wooden boxes, deserves nothing but removal from office.

The latest treachery – what appears to be the deliberate and revenge-motivated leaking of the name of an undercover CIA operative in retaliation for blowing the whistle on the administration’s deceptions on the Iraq war, may be grounds for a criminal prosecution.

These people obviously missed the civics lesson that taught the office of the presidency was to be held in the public trust.
