    Why? Because he's stupid? The War on Terror? He doesn't spell correctly?
    I you wonder why go rent Ferinheight 9/11
    Hating Bush because Michael Moore tells you to? A college dropout putting on a blatant propaganda piece of half truths? A brilliant idea if there ever was one.
    I mean what kind of leader when a government person comes into a room and tells you that the twin towers are being blow to bits just shruggs and keeps reading children's books?
    What was he supposed to do? Scream, cry, terrify school kids with: "OH **** WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!" or just plain bail on them? Jump up and deliever a speach he had NO idea he was supposed to give? What? What do you want?

    I see Slothdrop took care of this one already...
    My advice is not to mindlessly believe what other people tell you. Keeping the people stupid is what keeps most dictators on their thrones.

    I'm sorry, Alicia_Aaron, but your argument is a load of crap. Although I disagree with a few things that the president does, I have valid reasons for them. None of my arguments are based on what Michael Moore says, especially not on that hackjob of a documentary. Now, I consider myself to be a liberal, and my views do reflect those of many Democrats, but come on people... he's the damn President! He won the election three months ago! I've gotten over it, so why is it so damn hard for the majority of you?

    Again, although I do not agree with many of the things that the President has done (Iraq, Gay Rights, etc.), he has done them with remarkable proficiency under the circumstances. That's not saying that the lack of WMD's in Iraq was anything but a good cause gone FUBAR, rather that he acted professionally based on the evidence that was provided to him.

    Also, did you not see the look on George W. Bush's face when he was told about 9/11? He was shocked. The worst part was that there was nothing he could do about it. Besides, it does look better if the president can keep his calm during such an event.

    Yeah, I'm a Democrat, and yeah, I'm a liberal, but hell, I respect him for being President.

    EDIT: Oh, and just because I hate it when illiterate people try to argue... C-O-U-N-T-R-Y. Please, oh please, learn to spell.

    Looking at the facts... it's compleate horseshit.
    Fact is, the media called Florida for Gore after two percent of the counties were in, and before polls were even closed, effectively causing a decrease in the amount of votes for Bush in the first place.
    Hell, even the New York Times has conceded to Bush winning.

    Bush won, that is the end of it.

    The US Supreme Court at the time was made up of mostly Liberal-minded judges, i.e. judges that typically sided with the Democratic positions on a subject. NO party has control over the Supreme Court. They are not elected, they are appointed and are appointed for life. The role of the Supreme Court in the 2000 election was to refuse to hear a lawsuit brought by a liberal activist group. The suit was filed AFTER the Florida elections were certified and also AFTER Gore had already conceded the election. All the Supreme Court did was throw out a useless lawsuit.


    Sorry to tell you this, but your entire arguement IS based upon Fahrenheit 9/11. I'm not a Bush supporter by any stretch of the imagination, but the ingorance shown by most Bush-bashers makes me ill.

    I'm a hard pressed liberal, but I have to agree with the others. Basing you entire political viewpoint on a movie or severl highly biased authors is no way to choose your political affiliation. I dare say it's childish to appeal to a single viewpoint before making a decision like that.

    Firstly, America won't fall apart just because Republicans are in office. Are we more polarized than we've been since the Civil War? Maybe, but I doubt it will go that far. Things are pretty bad, yes, but it won't stay bad.

    Second, I also wish Bush never got elected. But he did. It's done. Let's see what comes next.

    If you want to develop arguments against the administration, don't watch Farenheight 9/11. We have neither the insight nor the hindsight to know whether or not he was right or if he just pulled words out of a hat managed to make a movie. Though simply because a source is heavily biased doesn't necessarily mean that the information is wrong; a second source should be sought so that one can have a fuller view of a subject.

    If you want to get a better idea about political science I point you to three books, Social Contract by Jean-Jaques Rousseau, Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes and Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith. With those books you get the view of a Classic Liberal, a Classic Conservative and the Father of Capitalism. Use their words and their ideas to develop your ideas, not a movie or a story or what you hear from a single mindset of people.

    There are many things that Bush is doing wrong, but you've got to have better tools to better analyze what he's doing wrong.

    Also, it helps to try to see if he's doing something right.
