About the phony soldiers thing. I found it very telling when the caller said something to the effect of "if you ask a real soldier, they are proud to serve," implying that, again, you're not a real soldier if you don't back the war.

But what if it was Hillary he was having sex with (*shudder to think*), not an intern? Would this be an issue at all? Oh noes, sex in the Oval Office!

It's not a crime to cheat on your wife, so why was this investigated at all? Sounds like a witchhunt. It is, though, a crime to solicit sex in a public bathroom, such as what Republican Representative Larry Craig did.

Again, it shouldn't have been investigated at all.

And they should, because a Republican cheating on his wife is utter hypocrisy. The problem with Republicans is their holier-than-thou attitute when it comes to things such as sex. Republicans need to practice what they preach. You don't hear Dems going out talking about "family values" and all that bull. That's why it's not such a big deal when a Dem has a sex scandal. They don't claim to be more moral than everyone else, because they know that they aren't, and don't pretend to be, like the Republicans do.

So Bush hasn't disgraced the office?? Have you seen his latest approval rating? Pretty disgraceful to me. If we threw out government officials for disgracing their office, we probably wouldn't have 2/3 of our government. I say that'd be a good thing though.

I agree with you completely on this. I say that if they're going to have their investigations, at least make them worthwhile. Like, actually force people to testify under oath and such.

George W. Bush is a disgrace and an embarassment to America.

But the President is on the job all day long. He's expected to be on call 24/7 if something big goes down. When is he supposed to have sex? Can he just not have any sex for the entire four years? And what's this about it being with a "subordinate?" Being a White House intern doesn't make you a sex slave for the President or something. She could have said no if she wanted to.
