that Bush's presidency has produced far more "disastrous consequences" for the
country than did Nixon's.

But that is not the worst part of the Bush era as compared to the Nixon era, explains Bernstein.
What has made this time dramatically more troubling, the 63-year-old journalist explains, is that "there is no oversight."

Blake Harris belly flops into the mud pit during the Texas Redneck Games at the Pool Ranch in Athens, Texas, Saturday, Aug. 4, 2007. For three days, hordes of legit and wannabe rednecks convene to drink, race their ATVs, and compete in events such as spam eating and mattress throwing. Patterned after the original Redneck Games which began more than a decade ago in Georgia, the Texas version is in its third year and attracts about 5,000 to 6,000 people.
