As for Bush’s remembrance, no one can know, however, he might be seen as the man who freed the world from the crip of terrorism, the man who brought democracy to the oppressed and the man who set the stage for a strong centrallized world government (that last thing would be a BAD thing.)
i am left speechless.
You are … i don’t know how else to say it… plain stupid.
Well that was a witty retort. Anyway, I could give a flying fig over democracy in Iraq, and I think Bush in the end could care less too. But wars have to be presented to be moral wars. Civil war was not fought over slavery, it was fought over tax appropriations and tarrifs. But doesn’t “free the slaves” sound so much nicer? This war was not fought over WMD or freeing the Iraqi people. It was fought so that we would have a strong presence in the middle east to scare the living hell out of any country that supports terrorist.
What did Bush do? Next country that is found responsible for flying planes into buildings can expect to have a real quick regime change. He is speaking to the middle east in the only language they understand - force.
I think he has conducted the war badly. If you go in, go in to win or don’t go in at all. He is doing it 1/2 assed and it is costing us American lives. His reaction to 911 was stupid “just live your life like normal”. What a crock. The American people would have done anything he asked after 911 and he asked them to do nothing. His hydrogen car BS is just naked corruption IMO. He sold us out to big oil - period. He is throwing away $ in aid to Africa for aids, like we have it to spare… and as if we don’t have people in America with AIDS. If there was any justice he would be impeached for his policy of amnesty for illegal aliens.
Oh ya, he has made some HUGE screw ups. But I voted for him, and even knowing what I know now I still would have voted for him because I can not stand kerry. If kerry were in office things would be much worse IMO. The dems need to run someone worth voting for instead of extremist. They ran a guy who called our troops in Vietnam rapists and murders… He has admitted to commiting war crimes while HE was in Vietnam. He had no solutions to the problems the country had - he wanted to get elected on “bush is stupid”.
Now it looks like they will run Hillary in 08. They will never learn. I just hope whoever the republicans run is a better leader than what Bush is. Because we sure as heck need it now.
