New York Times columnist Paul Krugman on Bill Maher's Real Time stated the republic would be over if it weren't for Bush's ineptitude. Paul is half correct. While President Bush's incompetence has minimized the damage to nation, the real reason the republic is holding on is because average Americans like a caller to CSPAN who confronts Rep. Trent Franks , or the Rep. Joe Knollenberg constituent who is demanding accountability from his elected official, or the hundreds of people who showed up at a Brian Baird town hall meeting, or the Frost family who want health care for all needy children aren't ready to give it up.
The country isn't over until the people say it is and that drives the CONS nuts. Keep up the good work everyone.
