clzoomer- a bit woobly

I find it amazing that politicians of all ilk and nations can manage to be lauded after they leave office (or this mortal coil) despite making monumental blunders of judgement and morality. Reagan, Mulroney, Clinton, Lord Parkinson, etc. they all had their time in the spotlight but managed to become legends if not famous. It seems we are all to willing to forget the faults and celebrate the achievements if they were big enough personalities. Personally I can't excuse Kent State, Watergate, Agnew, the bloated mistakes named the EPA and DEA, Cambodia bombings, Kissinger's war crimes, or any other Tricky Dicky manuevers in favour of the good he did. But then I lived through that time. smiley - sadface

Hitler learned it, Nixon learned it, lately no one else has learned it. The top guy gets the entire truck load of manure. Truman said it best- *The buck stops here.*

Looks like Enron's top man Ken Lay may be learning it ... he was indicted (and handcuffed, I think) yesterday. Unlike Hitler's officers (who were all "following orders"), Mr. Lay says his officers were liars and thieves, but he did nothing wrong. smiley - thiefsmiley - angelsmiley - thief
