I don't personally blame Clinton or Bush so much as their appointees. Yes, as captain of the ship, it is ultimately the President's responsibility, but in day-to-day stuff I blame the horrible FBI and Attorney General picks each of them has chosen.
Reno was relatively quiet. I failed to trust her through her actions. Ashcroft won't keep his fucking mouth shut. We all know he's an autocrat cause he's so damn giddy about it.
But since I couldn't even remember the new FBI director's name, I decided to look it up. This guy looks scarier than even Ashcroft.
But don't take my word for it. There's plenty of dirt on him with a nice google search.
I didn't like Louis Freeh, either, evil socialist bastard. I'd hoped Bush would appoint a more libertarian AG and FBI director. HA! So much for that. It appears neither administration cared to clean up the agencies' problems, the first of which being a required course "Civil Liberties 101". I'm glad our friend here got nabbed by some seemingly nicer fellows just "doing their jobs" but the intra-agency cover-ups and general inability to put 2 and 2 together just make me sick.
If there really is a crisis in America and a loss of confidence in our elected officials blah blah blah it is as a direct result of the poor leadership and nepotistic pederast inbreeding at the highest levels.
Elected officials are elected by popularity, not competence. Appointees are chosen by competence and nepotism. Choose your evil.
Competent. Too too competent.
I hereby call this rant ended.
