    I wish George W Bush could run for President again

    Now I know some of you guys don't like him at all, however I feel he did a good job overall with this country after Clinton ran it into the ground.

    If it wasn't for George W Bush we wouldn't have stopped Saddam Hussein and his terrorist attacks against the fine people of the USA. Not to mention the fact that he has implemented much stricter laws to ensure the safety of our country.

    I think you're right but what accounts for the current state of affairs? Did George Bush just have bad luck? He is the CEO and must take the fall.

    Lots of posters are products of the media. Many bash him because they see him being what the media portrays. Some can sift through the bullshit and see the good he did instead of the bad. He was by far from perfect but a lot that he did was good credibility to the United States of America.

    sounds like someone is a little bitter that the 8 years of tax free days and bullshit write offs are finally coming to an end

    so greedy....that greed by fundies is the reason why america is in debt to the chinese....in the trillions....but you STILL want more....YOU WANT IT ALL....didnt your parents leave you enough in that trust fund?????....LMFAO

    when Clinton was in office....gas was $1.50 a gallon....everyone had 2 cars in their garage....the economy flourished....ya....I guess the country was in the shithole back then

    when Bush came into office....he picked up right where his daddy left off.....sent our boys back to Iraq....told the world that it wouldnt be ANOTHER vietnam....yet it will be 19 years we have been there in 2 months

    not to mention 9/11 happening under Bush....$40 million to investigate Clinton getting a blowjob but only $10 million to investigate 9/11??

    you do the math....

    Well, for you you are nothing but a fuggin dem who only looks at things from the left side of things. Bush hasn't been the best president in the world, no, but you ppl blaming everything on him is absurd. Grow a pair and realize that running this country isn't easy.

    Obama will bury is pal.

    Obama will get into office, nothing will change, decline will gradually happen, he will simply blame Bush and Repub. Continuously is what Dems do. Instead of a solution they just blame the Repubs.

    Pick up a newspaper, do a little research before act like you know what you're saying. You type like a 12 year old.

    So the scum bags can get their food stamps, grants, and other cash from the successful people of this country because they would rather buy dubs and louis vouiton instead of going to college or putting a roof over their heads?
