It amazes me that so many people actually buy into this guy. He’s an absolute moron who deserves the same kind of general contempt and disapproval that Nixon had at the end of his career. Some day we will all look back and agree that Bush was the worst (and least trustworthy) president EVER.
I respectfully disagree. The morons in Washington D.C. are the Democrats, plain and simple. The economy has been in recession since the middle of 1999 (Clinton, not Bush). The Democrats are the ones that don’t want the tax reduction now. I’m unemployed thanks to this recession and everyone knows that a tax decrease is the way to go to spur the economy.
And what, pray tell, do you think we should do about terrorism? Wait for another skyscraper to burn down, or maybe a nerve gas release over a major city? Iraq is just the beginning of the war on terror. The war was brought to us, not the other way around. We have no choice but to fight - violence is the only thing our enemies understand. We can’t negotiate with people who think they have eternal salvation waiting for them if they kill “infidels”.
Wow! That was insightful. My favorite part of your post is how you backed up your opinion with hard facts.
He’s a politician. Par for the course. Any other reason for your disapproval. You might find this funny: http://maddox.xmission.com/ limits_to_freedom.html

Unortunately, I have other things to do besides posting all the "Bushisms" I have. The man is clearly a genius, that's for sure. He has an limitless hability to articulate these pearls of wisdom that enlighten us all with concepts that none of us would never reach by ourselves. This man rules the world, and is clearly qualified to do so.
Whenever there is a war or some sort of conflict that may result in a war the leaders approval rating will be high almost no matter what he does because that is what everyone is focusing on and people do not notice that he may not have that great a grasp of the english language or that he lookls like some sort of rodent(beady eyes) mostly like a weasel.
What hole did this loser pop out of?
Taking stuff out of context can be funny. Most of those would hopefully not sound as stupid in context. Or at least I could place almost all of those quotes in a context that cleared up the “stupidity”. The funniest thing was the use of the word “misunderestimated”. I reserve the right to make up new words, and I appreciate those that do the same.
Man, you sure did your homework, Restless! Outstanding. I totally agree with you and Stank, and wonder how geniuses like Burnsey come up with such ludicrous (in my opinion) ideas, especially since people like him are the ones who probably voted for the absolute worst president this country has ever seen – the devil himself, William Jefferson Clinton. (I really do try to stay out of these political arguments, but what the hell…)
Hey, maybe I should do more than selectively read a few sentences, and then read them more carefully!! If anyone ever deserved an absolute flaming for a stupid-assed post, I shamefully step forward. Burnsey riled me, and since I have to get my ass back to work, I scanned a few lines in Restless’ post and then mad my asinine post. My bad. Oh well. Back to work I go, head hung low. Maybe some of you more alert folks out there can back GW, because I need to go make another stupid post in some other thread! (Oh, and Clinton is still the devil)
The most compelling argument I can make here is that Bush sucks ass. But for those of you who would like something more substantial, here’s a few items to contemplate:
Since coming to office, the Bush administration has withdrawn US support for the International Criminal Court, withdrawn from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with Russia, withheld US support for UN anti-torture measures, and adopted a “pre-emptive strike” policy. This is to say nothing of the military aid that has been granted to nations such as Indonesia, whose armies abuse human rights and covertly support terrorist organizations. The Bush foreign policy is creating a growing divide between the US and the rest of the globe. These policies are furthering the nuclear threat and building a world that is less stable and less cooperative.
Tony Bennett may seem like an odd person to quote, but following the 911 attacks he said something that I couldn’t agree with more. He said “Power never wins, only humanity does”. So true. Trying to protect ourselves by controlling the rest of the world is exactly the opposite of what we should be doing. This will only intensify hatred towards Americans and make future attacks inevitable. The only way to disarm hatred and terrorism against us is to display wisdom and stewardship on this giant rock we all share, and to quietly earn the respect of the world by upholding the principles (and truth) that real democracy stands for. The sad truth however, is that it’s probably too late for that now.
To conclude with my original argument: Bush chews anus.
So, Hillary Clinton is now posting on T-Mag using the name “Burnsy?”
All i have to say is whitewater, pardons, and “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Thanks and have a good day.
I hate to get anywhere near a political conversation, but what, exactly, should we do (or not do) as a nation with regards to that whole terrorism thing? Would you suggest sitting here and taking it passively? I’m not saying which is the right course to take right now; I just want to know what you would suggest, as you seem quite impassioned about the topic, and your post only supplied attitudes that our government should take.
Damn Stank! I couldn’t have put it together any better myself. Its really good to see that someone has their head on straight and lives in the real world. Good luck and gettin back on your feet bro!
I am running short on time, but let me nail 3 quickies for you: (1)do you know why Bush has withdrawn support for the ICC? Of course not. Facts haev little meaning to the flaming left. Let me enlighten you: Why? Because the ICC does not recognize an accused’s BASIC rights, the same rights we DO recognize under OUR Constitution. This means that US citizens charged with a crime by the ICC would be stripped of the protections afforded an accused by the US Constitution. Boy, that does seem like a bad thin doesn’t it? So, we should sign up for something that will take away some our rights? Is that your solution? :rolleyes: (2) We withdrew from the ABM treaty. Why? Because we want and should have the right to develop an missle DEFENSE system - especially in light of the terrorist threat where it is very possible that some terrorist or terrorist nation could lob a nuke or bio-bomb at us. Another bad thing, eh? :rolleyes: (3)Develop a first strike policy. Is this really a bad thing? It is called survival. Should we sit idley by and let some adversarial nation build up weapons when it is entirely possible that they might attack one of our bases or embassies? Should we just knock someone out when we know what they are going to do? Boy, that sounds really bad, too! :rolleyes: It is just like you libs, to take things out of context and show absolutely no understanding of the issues. It is just a bunch of liberal mumbo jumbo - complete and utter idiocy. At least Bush doesn’t get on camera and lie right to your face like the previous president.
This guy is a joke. I bet he thinks Clinton was the greatest prez ever. Let me guess? If Satan was a democrat and Jesus a repub, you’d rally for Lucifer. Correct?
HAHA…you think its Bush’s policys that are creating tension between the US and the rest of the world? Get ur head outta ya 6 son…you think the rest of the world all of a sudden dislike us?? Not too many other countries have ever liked us. Wake up
Bush sucks because he’s not right wing enough and he is too beholden to Israel.
Still he is 10,000 times better than any clinton/gore alternative.
There are many Bush haters, and just like Clinton haters – I wasn’t too fond of Bill but moreso I didn’t like Hillary – people will say general things about a President like “he’s an absolute moron” and he’s the “worst” because they have no other way to express their displeasure about him.
The public is infatuated with proving how stupid politicians are, by quoting them like restless did, and ranting about them like burnsy.
I’m a Republican, and a rather conservative one, so I like President Bush and I like the policies and viewpoints he espouses. Banning partial birth abortions, cutting taxes, limiting frivolous lawsuits against doctors, helping drug addicts recover, using all available resources to fight terrorism, and being aware of maladies and the plight of other nations and continents were just some of the things he spoke about.
All of these things were articulated quite well by our President in his speech. And if you Bush-haters would have bothered listening to him objectively, instead of slobbering and drooling all over yourselves as to how you were gonna get on the forum and show us all what an idiot he is, and how edu-muh-cated you are, you might have learned something.
