Wonder if Slick Willie will include his "carpet cleaning" experience on his presidential resume?

Some of those points will be disputed. Even if you throw all those out, you're still left with quite an accomplishment! Not many people who are free-marketeers and successful busisnessmen realize that he ran every business venture he was involved with into the ground, except for when Saudi money bailed him out.

A real eye-opening book is "House of Bush, House of Saud" by Craig Unger. I'm sure many will smear Mr. Unger, but his meticulous references are solid and documented. By all measures of conservative success, Bush was a failure. That resume was referred to as a "joke". Our debt is not and gov't encroachment, be it by Obama or Bush, is not.

He was a fairly successful govenor and well thought of by both sides of the aisle, not to mention by the public.

Evan,

you guys elected him TWICE and you have the gall to say i'm stupid?

thanks, Evan. nice touch......

Bob,

i addressed this in an earlier post. we are well aware that he is no longer the president.

he was, however the chief executive of this country during a period of time that produced many of the problems the present administration is trying to deal with now. i think you understand that.

you would probably see less reference to him on this site if you and others would stop attacking the current administration for many of the policies that have been in place during his tenure. especially since many of these policies were common to administrations prior to Mr. Bush taking the Oath.-Paul

the fact that you choose to call him anything but his given name or simply the President is derisive. it is really no different than the myriad other insulting nicknames i see on here day after day.

i agree with you in that it's childish, though.

i consider Bush to be the worst President of this country in my lifetime. but i respect him enough to not resort to name calling.

Yes, its nice to hear at least respect for the office of POTUS. "Dubya" was a name used by his friends as well as enemies, nonetheless, I try to use proper names when referring to presidents, past and present.

I have seen repeatedly "O-bumma", "Osama", and "obongo" which I find neither cute or respectful.

As for you assessment of Mr. Bush, I couldn't agree more. In fact, my 90 year old grandfather who weathered the Great Depression, WWII, and a coal-mine cave-in, says Bush was the worst disaster he's seen in his lifetime!

I don't hate you at all. Why would you say that? I just do not like GW Bush because of the lies he told to start the war in Iraq which has killed over 4,000 members of our armed forces and maimed and wounded countless others just to feed his ego. And just how many innocent Iraqi's have been killed or wounded because Saddam threatened to "kill his daddy.

When we went to war with Iraq I thought it was justified because Saddam had WMD because the President said so, why would I not believe that. Then down the road we find out there were no WMD and that Bush was told that before he pulled the trigger to start the war but he was hell bent on leather to avenge his father. That along with all his cover ups and all the corrupt people that he surrounded himself with and his trampling of the Constitution which he took an oath to uphold.

If I am not mistakin, (and I am not) his name is Obama.
That's what I call him, though I was raised to call all Presidents President it seems Bush is acceptable, so Obama must be as well, your standard not mine.

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the president his daily briefing. He concludes by saying: "Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed."

"OH NO!" the President exclaims. "That's terrible!"

His staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the President sits, head in hands.

Finally, the President looks up and asks, "How many is a brazillion?"

Geez, this response is just plain loopy.

Like Bush had anything to do with the WTC diaster and you fault him for going after the perps...which by the way had almost FULL support of the Congress....except maybe the wimpy junior senator from Illinois or was he still in the IL legislature?

Instead, the current admin is over-seeing the largest government take-over on record and may well enable the collapse of our economy and/or our government financial system.

Lastly Roger I hope you dont spend to much time everyday looking for a gotcha on W. Like him or not he is out of office. BTW Roger most conservatives arent real impressed with him either.

The War in Afghanistan is an ongoing coalition conflict which began on October 7, 2001, as the US military's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/US_military) Operation Enduring Freedom (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Enduring_Freedom) that was launched, with help from the British military (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HM_Armed_Forces), in response to the September 11 attacks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_11_attacks).

Well Keith, here is another source other than Wikipedia.


Operation Enduring Freedom began after the Taliban rejected U.S. demands made following terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Bush had called on Afghanistan's leaders to close terrorist training camps and hand over al Qaeda leaders, including Osama bin Laden. The president also demanded the return of all unjustly detained foreign nationals and the opening of terrorist training sites to U.S. inspection. When the terrorist ignored those demands, about 15 land-based bombers and 25 Navy strike aircraft from carriers launched the first strikes in Operation Enduring Freedom. In addition, U.S. and British ships and submarines launched some 50 Tomahawk missiles, then-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Richard Myers reported that day.

http://usmilitary.about.com/od/terrorism/a/afghanann.htm

Do you still not believe that the reason for invading Afghanistan was to capture and bring to trial Osama Bin Laden and leaders of Al Qaeda as stated in Wikipedia?

By the way, I have no problem with the fact that we went after Bin Laden in Afghanistan. The only thing I dislike about the war in Afghanistan is that we did not follow through on capturing or killing Bin Laden. Here are a few quotes from W about Bin Laden.


"The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."
- G.W. Bush, 9/13/01
"I want justice...There's an old poster out West, as I recall, that said, 'Wanted: Dead or Alive,'"
- G.W. Bush, 9/17/01, UPI
"...Secondly, he is not escaping us. This is a guy, who, three months ago, was in control of a county [sic]. Now he's maybe in control of a cave. He's on the run. Listen, a while ago I said to the American people, our objective is more than bin Laden. But one of the things for certain is we're going to get him running and keep him running, and bring him to justice. And that's what's happening. He's on the run, if he's running at all. So we don't know whether he's in cave with the door shut, or a cave with the door open -- we just don't know...."
- Bush, in remarks in a Press Availablity with the Press Travel Pool,
The Prairie Chapel Ranch, Crawford TX, 12/28/01, as reported on
official White House site
"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."

Roger, I've said it before and I'll say it again: bin Laden lives in a CAVE...he's on the run CONSTANTLY from Predators and Hellfire missiles...such is the life of the leader of al Qaeda...:rolleyes:...frankly, I care more about what BHO is going to do about bin Laden than I am what Bush 43 said...'cause I live in the NOW, not the past. Try it sometime...it might help you sell some real estate. ;-) And again, if you want to live in the past, you need to place a big 'ole helping of blame on Clinton...had he acted when he had the opportunity, it is HIGHLY unlikely that al Qaeda would have had the financing to put 20 terrorists on American soil to pull off the biggest terrorist attack in American history....not to mention the organization....

Now we get to see what the '09 Nobel Peace Prize winner is made of...will he escalate the war like he said he would to get elected? Will he buck up and do what his military commanders tell him he should do to get the job done? Or will we be left to watch al Qaeda and the Taliban rise to a level of power that they have yet to enjoy as soon as we pull out?

I'm sure his year and a half as a Senator and his experience as a community organizer will help him make these decisions....:cool:
