    Re: Is president bush doing a good job?

    Yeah, our country is doing so bad right now that's why nobody else in the whole world wants to come here! [/sarcasm]

    And if any of you think our economy is bad, just do a little research as to what it's like in the rest of the world.

    Our national debt may be high in terms of dollar amount, but it is peanuts when compared to our Gross Domestic Product. And of all the countries on this great world of ours, the United States - even with this huge deficit - is financially more secure than every other nation.

    So you have to ask yourself - if GWB is doing so poorly in your mind, then why is it that our country is on such stable ground financially? Why do millions of people want to come here to work? Hmmmmm??

    While I don't fault somebody for wanting to better their life by coming to work here, I have two issues with the current immigration problem: 1) those people should come here by legal means, and if not they should be immediately deported; and 2) companies that hire people that can't prove citizenship or worker-visa status should be punished with heavy, heavy fines. I fault the businesses just as much as I fault the people that come here illegally.


    That being said, there are more people that come to this country LEGALLY than ILLEGALLY. But it doesn't matter, your response still doesn't diminish my point.

    Even though the government has turned a blind eye to illegals coming here, those people are still coming here. Why? Because our economy is so BAD??? NO!!!!! They are coming here because our economy is so very good.

    Eating up our hard-earned cash?? Do you want your government to run on a profit? Then you would see them eating up your hard-earned cash!!

    As for the situation with gas prices - what do you want the President to do, federalize all the oil companies and fix prices at a certain level?? Communism doesn't work. Just look back in history at the Communist regimes and see how their economies worked. China is still considered "communist", but they are far more open with free-market principals than any other communist country in history. I'm not sure that they really are truly communist. Certainly the leadership of that country tries to lay an iron fist ala Communist Russia, but they also realize the need to have free-market concepts in order prosper - unlike Communist Russia.

    There are no economic indicators pointing towards a depression, so I'm curious as to how you have formed that opinion.


    Hurrican Katrina was more of a local-government failure than a federal-government failure. But is far more chic to point blame at the Bush Administration than on a minority Mayor of a predominant minority city that just got wiped out. That being said, there aren't things that couldn't have been done better on a federal level. But my feeling is that all of that complaining is just "Monday Morning Quarterbacking" - meaning that hindsigt is always perfect vision. Things that most certainly could have been handled better at a local level was following emergency response procedures. Those buses were supposed to be used to evacuate people. Instead they didn't get used, and after the city flooded and they needed help moving people out they couldn't use the buses because they were water-logged. The plan by Mayor Nagin to house people in the Superdome was fine if it was going to be a temporary shelter, but they counted too heavily on the levees not being over-topped (which they were) and keeping thousands of people downtown in the flood-zone soon became a bad idea.

    So, yes, the feds could've done better. But if the locals had done their job, the feds wouldn't have been so-badly needed.

    I don't really like bush, or the bush administration. I don't think there doing a good job at all. Most of the things they do don't even make sense...

    I know, he has said only one sensible thing I've heard so far ... the one in which he defended the migrants taking over some jobs issue. And, try searching for faliure in google xp

    Like what specifically? Since you say "most of the things" you should be able to come up with lots of answers for me.

    There are ways in which people manipulate the way search engines provide results for certain searches. Be careful of relying on search engines to provide answers to questions.
