Joe, a centrist?

How can it be that a democrat who votes consistently with the Republicans can be considered a centrist? As far as I’m concerned, Joe Lieberman could deliver the key note address at the GOP nominating convention for the ’08 election!

Why is it that two Republicans and invited on Meet The Press to represent the two sides of the immigration debate instead of one member of each party?

Am I dreaming or did I just watch a TV Promo for Countdown with Keith Olberman that said “is President Bush too Liberal?”

The media’s perspective of right and left remains seriously altered after 9/11. Granted they have been getting better but it seams to them being fair is giving the Republican a little more time to speak than the democrat.

Well Thank Goodness.

At least the Bush dynasty is over for sure.

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said he was privately approached about his interest in becoming the NFL’s next commissioner.

Bush said Tuesday the issue was discussed at a recent meeting with Patrick Rooney Sr., according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Rooney’s brother is Dan Rooney, owner of Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers and co-chair of the search committee looking to replace the retiring Paul Tagliabue.

“I met with Mr. Rooney and I said, `I’m doing my job until I’m finished and then I’m going to consider other things,”’ Bush told the newspaper.

Bush has said he will not run for president in 2008.
