President Bush
Wednesday, August 1, 2007
Off the subject of sports for a while. I am not really into politics, I do follow it once in a while. I am not a big fan of Bush, but like I said, I do not follow the subject. Every time people get on the topic it always get heated. You have the people who hate Bush and then the people who love Bush and call you un American if you dont follow him.

So basically, with this post, I want to know:

If you are a fan of Bush, what has he done for this country? What has he done to make our lives easier? Safer? (Besides the fact of catching Saddam, when he should be catching Bin Laden)

If you are not a fan of Bush, what do you think of him? Is he to blame for the gas prices? Should he of been able to give himself a raise to 400K a year??

This post is not an arguement, just to get peoples opinions, I am really interested on the subject, and am really curious why people think he is so great. Not that he can ever run again, but maybe it could make me change my mind, haha, ya right.

    Bush is always a touchy subject with so many people. I also do not know much about politics, so I dont know where to begin. I can not say since he has been President that the world has been better for Americans, but I am sure many people will disagree. I do not think all those troops need to be over in Iraq, all those poor families probably miss their hubbies. But those men are brave and that is what they signed up for to fight for our country, but I am just confused on what it is they are doing over there???

    OK on the topic of BUSH, wow man where to begin. My opinion of the man is he is a very arrogant, undereducated, egotist, with his eyes on dictatorship and world domination. What has he done for us, I can tell you what he has done for me. You may agree or disagree.
    Bush has made it much easier for Big Business to ship its jobs overseas, or making it simpler to gain work visa's for people to com into our country to work. Specifically its Tech jobs. Big Business can pay these people a third of what we as Americans are getting paid... Without being taxed.
    So thats just one of the things Bush has done for me. I have so much more, and given a chance I would love to thank him in person.
    I guess in the very end of it all, it may make me seem un American. Well I am Irish American, do you know what that means? I don't care what others think of me.
    Bush is worthless, he has done nothing but create debt, war, and damn near a collapse of democracy.
    You asked for it I gave it.

    That is the kind of Comments I was hoping to get out of this. I was to start some trouble. Because that is what sells. I would have to agree with you that he is making it hard on us to find jobs. But just think one more year of the the COS. or should I say the Freakin Idiot.

    He's extremely undereducated but I think going to Iraq was the best choice. Nonetheless a dumbass.

    Why was it a good Choice? He went over there to stick up for what saddam was going to do to his dad. We need to be going after Bin Ladin.

    I have alot to say on this topic. In 1990/91 I was part of the force that liberated Kuwait after Sadaam attempted to annex it and make it part of Iraq. I don't want to rehash the whole conflict, except to say that after we defeated him our generals took his generals up in a helicopter and showed them the battlefield and how utterly defeated they were. At this point we signed a treaty with them that outlined their conditions of surrender. Over the years Sadaam not only continously violated the terms of the agreement but also violated 14, count them, 14 UN resolutions. The most important one being the ability for UN weapons inspectors to have free course to ensure he didn't start up his NBC (Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical) programs. I ask you, based on this and the intel we had at the time, and the fact that we had just be hit by terrorists harder than ever before, how could we not go in? I support the decision to invade and as a veteran of Desert Shield/Storm I think it honored what we did over there. If I have any issue it's with the overall handling of Iraq after the war.

    Cpapa... my response to you is this.
    Should we be there? Yes, Sadaam was a cancer that was eating away at that country.
    Should we have switched our focus so far from what actually started this mess. Because Sadaam and the invisible WMD's certainly didn't start this. Al Qaeda and the Taliban, they started this with there terrorist actions. So as far as honor goes it may seem we honor what was already achieved but we do not honor the fallen of that fateful day by prioritizing Iraq over Afghanistan and Pakistan. Of course true to form our actionable intelligence is highly unintelligent. Which is funny since we have satelites that can track off body heat, how in the heck we can't find OBL.

    I don't know. Hindsight is 20/20. Most of the leaders that are speaking out against the war now, voted for the war at the time. At the time of the invansion we had already decimated the Taliban and a new democratic government had been established in Afghanistan so they weren't near the threat that Iraq was.

    I think me, you, and any other person who had the facts our leaders had at the time would have done the same thing.

    I think alot of the attacks on Bush have been strictly politically motivated. I think history will judge Bush far better than the media is judging him right now.
