Iam not supporting that dumbass. Bush is so clueless. I didn't vote for him & Iam not old enough to vote.(I'm 15 about to be 16) I hope the first black pres. wins or the first woman pres.
I dont blame bush for everything thats been happeneing and the choices thats been made. I mean he cant really do much with out the other parts of the government to back him up, if he was doing such a terrible job he would be impeached. most of his decisions have to run through other offices before they are carried out. In our government you cant just blame one person we run on a checks and balance system.
well i cant say i liked what he has done, he has made a lot of mistakes in what do with this war in all, but everyone must understand that everyone makes mistakes and being a president is a very hard job, and to keep everyone happy usually doesnt happen because theres so many sides to the decisions that he's left to make, theres always a good part and a downside to them. running a country is no piece of cake

With all due respect you are mistake if you think the country is in worse debt or a worse economy then under Clinton. Yes, the amount of debt has increased if you look at how much debt there is....but if you look at the percentage of debt to the Gross Domestic Product, the percentage of debt has decreased significantly. That is the number that counts. Every man, woman, and child in American shoulders less of the national debt now then when Clinton was in office. Both should be commended for reducing the national debt. Both took full advantage of the Regan and Bush tax cuts to generate more revenue and pay down the debt.o.o People actually like him? Jeez.. everyone i've talked to hate him. No offense to you or anything but he screwed up. Big Time in my opinion. Before Clinton left the office we had no debt or very little left to pay off.. now? It's through the roof... Granted that can be because of the simple fact of the war going over in Iraq... but even then. Do you honestly think that we should still be over there? I dunno.. maybe it's just me and I'm looking at it all wrong. It just seems like he's not doing a very good job.
Back on subject:
Now, my personal opinion is that no matter what you think of the President of the United States you should it least have respect for the office, if you don't have respect for the man. I couldn't care less if anyone 'bashs Bush' on his foriegn/domestic polocy. By all means is your right and your free to express it. But to call the president of the united states and idiot, moron, stupid (or baca if you prefer ) and everything else his critics have called him without cause (like saying why, specifically he is an idiot) is pointless, rude, and tasteless. If you want to disagree with the man, more power to you, but you can do it in a tasteful manner that doesn't demean the president or the office of the presidency. But unfortunately there are a lot of Bush's opponents that think personal attacks are somehow witty and show how much better they are then the President...despite not showing how is ideas are stupid or showing they have better one's then he does.
As I have said before, I am a peacefully person, but I do believe in the greater good. When people see a psycho zealot in the making, you don't wait for the next Holocaust to start, you take care of the problem now.
Did others before him drop the ball here. You bet they did. The difference is that he took the ball, shoved a firecracker in it, and then sat on it. But he didn't pay the price, we did..... correct that, the world has.
I think he/they needed a reason to go in there with as much force as possible. In their arrogance they believed that they could swoop in and it would all end quickly. Then they would be able to map out some nice treaties that would no doubt include something about the oil.
I would not have waited, I would have allowed the problem to be taken care of before it got to the point it did... For the greater good.
Now don't take this the wrong way, but I'm not beating a dead horse, and gripin' about it. You ask, so I answer. If you would rather I not answer, please don't ask me anything. No more post tennis okay?
Besides I believe everyone here can keep "gripin" (as you put it) as much as they like. It's a long American tradition going back before the American Revolution. As I recall the people didn't like how their leader was messing things up then either, and they gripped about it.
Now I hope we can part on this as friends, or at least respectful allies.
And the entire U.S. went inta this war with unrealistic expectations, not jus' our leaders. Wars r long and drawn out affairs and many ppl in the U.S. arrogantly thought that it was gonna b a short, sweet affair where there were, almost, no loss of life and the guilty would b punished. And when reality set in, many started complainin'.
And I think that u got the wrong impression of what I was tryin' ta say 'bout the "gripin'." I meant no insult or anythin' personal, I was jus' sayin' that the president can' get elected ta a third term. He's on his way out, so I feel that the complainin' is a moot point 'cause we won' haveta put up wit him much longer. His policies will b dead the moment he leaves office, so ta speak, and then he'll fade from our memories as the new president takes office. I not sayin' that ppl don' have a right ta complain, if they wanna; they r perfectly within their rights ta do so. I'm jus' sayin' that complainin' 'bout him now and demandin' that he b impeached, when he's about ta leave office, is a little redundant 'cause, very soon, he's no longer gonna b our president.
And I'm not gonna hold it against u jus' 'cause we have a difference of opinion. "Agree ta disagree" is one of my personal mottos and jus' 'cause we have a difference of opinions doesn' mean that I think any less of u. It's one of the principals that our country was founded on, so ur completely entitled ta ur opinion and as long as u respect my opinion; I'll respect urs. I'm not gonna, pettily, hold a grudge over a simple difference of opinions.
