Bush has no power behind the scenes, and has remained silent for a year.
Who has he remained silent to greeney?...just because he is not speaking in public doesn't mean he isn't talking to the powers that be.
As far as the democrats owning up to their mistakes..all i can see is that its pretty damn hard to fix the collosal mistakes of previous presidents.
And if the republicans had gotten in....how much money would have gone to bailing out the banks???? Have any idea on that number greeney?
In my opinion the real power that controls most of this planet goes far deeper than political parties.
