is over.
now before some of you attack the "liberal press" remember this, it was a interview and not a debate! it was tim russerts job to ask questions and for GW to answer said questions.
i think GW did pretty good, although he seemed somewhat tired to me.

I wouldn't want George's job for any money. Life is too short as it is. Takes a certain type of internal strength and resolve to take this country through what he has and will. Looks like I will be voting for Bush in November and Juliani in 08, even though I consider myself an Independant.

Against my better judgment, I'm going to respond.
Tim Russert is about as good as it gets. He asks tough, fair questions of everybody.
I wouldn't be a bit surprised if W is tired. He's a year older than I be and I'm tired most of the time.

Wish Tim would have asked him a really hard one. "what are you going to do about the corporations moving jobs off shore and why are you letting the manufacturing base disappear"

Questions that start with "What are you going to do about...." turn me right off. I'm glad he didn't ask it. I didn't watch it so I'll take your word for it.
When people think that the government has to have the answer and be the answer to everybody's problem, we've gone beyond the point of no return. All the candidates are doing is pandering anyway. If they pander to you and you buy it, you've proved P.T. Barnum's point again.

can't believe you think the government can't or shouldn't be involved in the citizens welfare. Without some regulation, corporate business would run wild in the country. Those that have the money make the rules. As far as asking questions, most politicans are not going to volunteer too much on their own.

call it what you want, but to give free rein to any business, railroads were a good example in the past, is not always a good idea. Can't agree on this.
however, like your reply on a wood chipper

Look at ADM...supermarket to the world. Held meetings overseas so it could fix the worldwide prices of Lysine and not be watched by the FBI. THe men who committed this crime will spend less time in jail than a local kid who sold marijuana. 2 years.

I may not agree with someones politics, doesn't mean that I dislike the person or won't help if I can...

Blame my Mother...

Do you really think that business is under-regulated in this country?

ret    Posted 02-08-2004 at 15:10:37       [Reply]  [No Email]
in some respects yes, look at the corporate scandals we have witnessed. SEC has been asleep. Boards of directors have ignored the small stockholder to enrich theirselves, hence all the golden parachutes that are voted in. Taking and forming off shore business to evade taxes in my opinion should be regulated. You think the Sherman antitrust act was a bad thing? I do agree, that govt control of business can be bad, for I don't trust the govt with doing the right thing either.

Can't be letting those PEOPLE have too much power now, can we? Some people would have you believe that "corporation" and "business" are dirty words. They are the same ones who scream bloody murder that their 401k funds are in the dumper.
Oh yes, the government is much better qualified to look out for every aspect of people's lives than they are themselves. It has been proven time and again in places like Russia, China, Cuba...

Also throw in illegal imigration and it would have been a much better interview. Maybe the whole interview pre negotiated.
