Why the cabinet shake-up?

I am not asking this in a partisan way!!


But I haven't been paying attention. (Report cards were due.) But what's the story with all these cabinet movements? Was it planned? Is this the usual thing to do after winning a second term? Or is this unusual?


(I know what Doonesbury has been saying, so there's no need to go there. )

U couldn't have asked nicer, Miss Martha. Yes, this topic has been reviewed on all of the t.v. political shows, including the prestigeous Sunday morning programs such as "Meet The Press". There is only one truthful answer: "It's the usual thing..." In fact, Don Evans, a personal, longtime friend of President BUSH, is simply returning to family and business in Texas. Colin Powell said four years ago that he'd only serve one term. Moreover, for his second term, REAGAN had 7 cabinet changes and CLINTON also had 7. Guess what? BUSH has 7! His Cabinet -- unklike any before it -- had the additionally devastating, burn-out effect widened and deepened by the Sept. 11th attacks. After all, the beginning of a second term -- for those so fortunate to have it --is technically the beginning of a 'new' Administration (even with the same head).

Thanks, Stonewall. I had a hunch it wasn't all that unusual because I hadn't seen anyone's eyes bugging out on either side.

Aren't you glad I'm not running the country?

U never have anything intelligent, positive, decent or nice to say about America! IMUHO, U are about as "deep" as Lee's press-on nails. By the way, about four million more voters agreed that the country is a bigger improvement with BUSH than KERRY.

P.S. Anytime, Miss Martha!

I do ever so love these "you never have anything good to say" replys. I really doubt you've read all 3100 of deep's posts, so how can you know about "never"? And just because something is popular doesn't mean it's good either (in many cases it just means it appeals to the lowest common denominator).

Okay, Stonewall, that's really enough. I really don't think that after a month of posting you are all that familiar with deep or his opinions. And it certainly wasn't nice to make fun of his nick.

We've been patient with you because you're new, but consider this your official warning to post a little more respectfully (and coherently, come to think of it) or else we'll be happy to give you a permanent FYM vacation.

I'm so happy that you're so happy ("I do so love....). One doesn't have to be smart to know that "U never have anything good to say is a 'figure of speech'. Who'd ever think that U'd have to explain that term to anyone on an internet board? Oh....let me explain: so much on internet boards is figure of speech. In fact, your own opening line is a 'figure of speech'.

"indra"-- I'm curious, what's the derivation -- I suspect that U are a bit embittered former KERRY fan?

By the way, speaking of "lowest common denominators", from what I have read of "Shallow", I wouldn't want to read the other 3,000. Enjoy the holidays (figure of speech)!

Oh, Paxi, please, you've had your snide raections before with the threats of "banishment". I don't need that crap. If someone can't take it then they shouldn't dish it. U seem to have a few apparent hang-ups. Come to think of it, with two Master's degrees, I am more than "coherent". Come to think of it, I'm outta here. Thus, I "86'd" U. Use your pretend power on someone else.

And just to think of it, it all started when Pax asked if we were all glad she wasn't running the country. Stonewall, just be careful. Don't get yourself banned for something like this.
