Berlusconi’s mousetrap

  1. Burlesconi sounds like Italy’s version of Richard Nixon.

    The credit I’ll give old infamous Tricky Dick is that when he realized it was hopeless, he resigned.

    Burlesconi has become an embarrassment to the people just as Nixon was to us in 1974.

    He needs to step down so Italy can better deal with the serious issues that it’s currently facing.

  2. “He needs to step down”

    That appears to be happening:

  3. Yes, Berlusconi has now “promised” to step down. But it’s the international market that forced his hand. Italy can’t afford to borrow at 7% interest. The interesting question is why the Eurozone’s third economy, a developed democracy, never threw him out. A big part of the answer is money. He’s the richest man in the country. As we see in US elections and will see again in 2012, power has never before been so crassly on sale.

  4. Like Richard Nixon, he had to step down.

    Richard Nixon didn’t step down by choice, he was facing certain impeachment in the senate and felony criminal charges which he was ultimately pardoned from by Ford.

    Berlusconi (hope I spelled it right this time lol) like Tricky Dick is a criminal and corrupt to the core.

    Now that he finally has a grip on sanity and is stepping down, the people of Italy can pick up the pieces this king of corrupt politician left behind.

    Io amore voi Italy MOLTO.
