Who's Really Screwing up America?

Robyn Blumner of Salt Lake Tribune gives use this top seven people who is screwing up American, leaving out elected officials and Supreme Court justices and the top two obvious choices, number two - President Bush and number one Vice President Dick Cheney.

  • Number seven, Tom Monaghan, founder of Domino's Pizza.
  • Number six, John Timoney, Miami police chief.
  • Number five, W.J. ''Billy'' Tauzin, former Louisiana congressman and current head of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America.
  • Number four, Roger Ailes, chairman and CEO of Fox News Channel.
Top three are ...
l No. 3: James Dobson, founder of the Colorado Springs-based ministry, Focus on the Family.

Dobson is the country's most influential evangelical leader and has been dubbed a Republican kingmaker for the sway he holds over the party. He controls a Christian Right media empire, with a radio show that purports to have 7 million American listeners - a powerful podium from which to push a radical agenda. How fast can gays and lesbians go from civil unions to civil arrest? Just ask Dobbie.

l No. 2: Kenneth Lay, former CEO and chairman of the now-bankrupt Enron Corp. (He actually makes Goldberg's list as No. 45.)

I use Lay as a symbol for American business gone wrong. He is representative of corporate executives everywhere who would milk personal riches from a dying company - a company they helped kill - leaving employees and shareholders with the worthless dregs. Lay exemplifies the culture of greed that has infected too many American businesses.

l No. 1: Karl Rove, a White House deputy chief of staff and President Bush's top political adviser, also known as ''Bush's Brain.''

Rove took a guy who used family connections to avoid Vietnam, who was a fall-down drunk ne'er-do-well until the age of 40, who failed at business until Daddy's friends came to the rescue, who held so little curiosity about the world that he didn't bother to travel, and made him president - twice. Rove is by far the man who has done the most to screw up America. Goldberg put Michael Moore in the top spot. It's no contest.
James ‘I choice who is really Christian’ Dobson, Kenneth ‘corporate greed’ Lay and Karl ‘Treasonous, lair, without ethics, smear artist, GOP mastermind’ Rove are the top three un-elected people who are screwing up America.

All three men, are members of the Republican Party. Karl Rove used Lay’s money and Dobson’s ‘religious’ supporters and fear to bring us rein of President Bush. It is sad, how these 3 men are connected to each other.
