    Holy shit, G.W. Bush is quitting politics? It would have been a very wise decision if he quit politics before the 2000 presidential elections. Probably the US would not be deep in debt as it is now.

    Or it could have been even worse -- who knows. One of the things he said in the interview I thought was very telling of his character:

    "I think it's bad for the country, frankly, to have a former president criticize his successor," Bush said. "It's tough enough to be president as it is without a former president undermining the current president."

    George W. Bush is a class act, and I don't give a rat's ass what the haters here think.

    In terms of how he handled criticism, and especially how he has conducted himself post-Presidency -- yeah, REALLY!

    It is such a pity that he started two wars, one of which against international law; and that those wars were not paid for by taxation, or spending cuts but by borrowing. He imprisoned and tortured people, again in contravention of international law, in Guantanamo Bay. His amnesiac administration allowed a vast assortment of simultaneous economic problems --- an overheated housing market, unregulated shadow banking, etc to simultaneously explode and precipitate the worst recession since the Great Depression.

    His policies have made us far less secure, squandered the accumulated wealth of two decades, and *far worse* have virtually given away American supremacy at its zenith to the Chinese.

    So to be a "lover" we have to like two GDAMN worthless wars given us by Dubya Bush?? You know those two wars produced "haters" by the millions against Americans, Some how I think you've got what you love and hate a little confused, I don't think there's anything obligatory about liking a warmonger that has done nothing but cause us enemies, and for what?? Haters my ass !!!!!

    As to the deficit: Gore would never have passed the crippling tax cuts, so you're wrong about how it could be worse. No matter what else would have happened fiscally, that wouldn't have.


    We can't pretend we have some sort of crystal ball to know what would have happened. We will never know what Gore would have done OR what the results of his decisions would have been -- so it's all really just Monday morning quarterbacking.

    Yeh, the "Special" Class.
    The "Special Class" was made up of retarded kids.
    The stupid teacher used to have them make antlers or feathers out of colored paper and wear them on their heads when they marched down the hallway to the cafeteria. As if they didn't stand out enough, already.

    NOBODY, Republican or Democrat, would have been stupid enough to invade Iraq, oh, except for George W. Bush. So, anybody else would have had a leg up on him.

    Ugh! Yet another person wallowing in cluelessness as if George W. Bush on his own invaded Iraq. You libs love to rewrite history -- especially when things don't exactly go as planned and then like to pretend you had no hand in any of it icon_rolleyes.gif

    OK !!! Here's the truth, not a rewrite of History, the NEO CONS tried to get Clinton to go to war with IRAQ, they were greatly disappointed when bush one didn't as they said then "finish the job"

    The Neo Cons largely made up of Zionists with dual citizenship (check it out for yourself) set out with Bush to as the Britts said, set the "facts" to fit their war policy. Yes the dems were brought in and showed by the overactive team of NEO CON propagandists to sell WMD fear tactics, so we went to war. It is not a rewrite of history to say that Bush "paid" dearly in basicly bribes to get get his 'coalition' of countries to back his damn war.

    Our country is paying dearly with a ruined economy in part because of these damn unnecessary wars that were planned long before 9-11. now try to rewrite this correct history, you can check out everything I wrote and it will be found factual. One more thing thanks to the Neo Cons going way back to Brezinski in Carters time, it is our intereference over oil that has brought terrorism down on us, its not that lame bush excuse "they hate our freedoms" What a fucking crock of bullshit that statement is. Americans need to wake up to the truth, might as well the rest of the world has its eyes wide open !!!

    I can guarantee that if the two interventions-cum-wars were properly funded (by increased taxation and government war bonds) AND by a proper declaration of war for both actions by the full Congress as is provided by the Constitution...

    ... even folks in the reddest GOP states would have thought twice about engaging us into the "never-ending long war".

    Bush '43 was guided in large measure by the recommendations of his cronies who were the NeoCon members of the PNAC (project for a New
    American Century, which will turn out to be the Chinese century), as well as the interventionist foreign policies of the Clinton and Bush '41 administrations before him.

    And Congress failed in it's responsibility to keep our Republic away from foreign entanglements.

    The Global War on Terror is a bipartisan failure; the GOP Proponents for pushing it, and the Democrats for failing to oppose and obstruct this tragic waste of manpower, lives, and the wealth of the Republic.

    The FACTS show that a large group of REPUBLICANS from the George W. Bush Administration testified before Congress that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, and that it was imperative that we invade Iraq and destroy them. It was all a bunch of LIES, and all but Colin Powell knew it. And, the vast majority of Congress believed what they were told by so-called experts with strong ties to the REPUBLICAN administration.

    EVERYBODY now knows that there were no WMD's.
    There's no re-writing history.

    Ugh! This argument is soooooo like 2005 or something. Let's not forget that even President Clinton warned of the WMDs in Iraq at one time. So this idea that the Bush administration tried to hoodwink the congress into a war by somehow BS-ing everyone into thinking Iraq had WMDs is just plain ridiculous.
