As I read some of the comments from some of the readers, I see that they have no idea how this country is run.
First of all, the House and Senate make the rules and spend the money in this country, not the president. The president can't do anything without their permission and their vote, yet he gets all the blame when something has gone wrong. Before you pass judgment on our president, check Congress to see who voted for anything that you think the president has done wrong.
As for campaign promises, do you actually think the candidate will do anything he promises? Do you think that the Congress will ever let Kerry do the things that he says that he will do. I don't think so.
