Bought the Texas Rangers baseball team in a sweetheart deal that took land using tax-payer money. Biggest move: Traded Sammy Sosa to the Chicago Cubs.
With fathers help (and his name) was elected Governor of Texas.
No proof of father's help
Accomplishments- Changed pollution laws for power and oil companies and made Texas the most polluted state in the Union. Replaced Los Angeles with Houston as the most smog ridden city in America. Cut taxes and bankrupted the Texas government to the tune of billions in borrowed money. Set record for most executions by any Governor in American history.
Became president after losing the popular vote by over 500,000 votes, with the help of my fathers appointments to the Supreme Court.
Other Presidents in the past have won the Election while not winning the popular vote. You obviously have NO clue How government works. I for one don't want to see the president elected by Floridians, Californians, and New Yorkers//New Jersians because right there you have 50% of the population.
Learn a little thing called STATEHOOD
Accomplishments as president--
Attacked and took over two countries.
I've yet to see the US flag replace the flags of said nations.
Spent the surplus and bankrupted the treasury.
Well maybe if Clinton hadn't tanked the Economy in his attempt to gain a budget surplus in a manner of 8 years, we'd not have this predicament.
And if Clinton hadn't supported Enron's buy in India, which the Indians later stopped paying Enron for their mulitmillion dollar investment (all with Clinton Administration funding) which in turn put them in massive debt.
Shattered record for biggest annual deficit in history.
Uh...no, John Hancock did that, but then do you even know who he is? Besides that's not the point, Congress spends the money, not the President.
Set economic record for most private bankruptcies filed in any 12 month period.
Actually this is Clinton's fault, thanks again for NOT KNOWING ECONOMICS
Set all-time record for biggest drop in the history of the stock market.
Actually the biggest drop was "Black Tuesday" or Monday I can never keep them strait, which was in what 1988? Either way, it had more of an economic impact than this one did, which is why Bush lost his re-election.
First president in decades to execute a federal prisoner.
Good ridance, this is no sissy nation that does not hang her criminals from the gallows
First president in US history to enter office with a criminal record.
Odd, considering many of our first Presidents were criminals for smuggling, including treason against Mother England. But in fairness of an actual crime, they were smugglers, such as the Adams's.
First year in office set the all-time record for most days on vacation by any president in US history.
Just because you are too lazy to work your butt off for the first 30 years of your life, doesn't mean he's not entitled to vacations.
After taking the entire month of August off for vacation, presided over the worst security failure in US history.
A security failure perpetuated by Clinton's Military and Intelligence cuts...all to help and gain his "zero-deficit".
Odd how Clinton cut funding in the only places which the Federal Government is constitutionally allowed to spend money.
Meanwhile Clinton increased budgets in the Unconstitutional Executive Agencies, which pass laws as federal laws without the use of the elected Legislature...talk about facism.
Set the record for most campaign fund-raising trips than any other president in US history.
Hey come on Harry S. Truman had a good run around on the Train, which is what caused him to WIN the elections, so don't be doggin him for this. Pathetic....
In my first two years in office over 2 million Americans lost their job.
Well it would teach them all a lesson that the Central Government can't pay them, as Clinton promissed, too bad they are all brainwashed into thinking it's Bush's fault...those morons.
Cut unemployment benefits for more out of work Americans than any president in US history.
Good, I don't want my federal tax going to pay for social programs. That's a job for the states.
Set the all-time record for most foreclosures in a 12 month period.
This is a repeat from the last one, god where's the originality? Again all Clinton's economic policies fault.
Appointed more convicted criminals to administration positions than any president in US history.
Oh? I'd really like you to name a few. Since Convicted Criminals can't hold any place in office...OH WAIT THEY AREN'T IN OFFICE...so it really doesn't MATTER NOW DOES IT!
Set the record for the least amount of press conferences than any president since the advent of television.
Good ridance, when I become president I'll hold even fewer press conferances, all TV does is make people stupid, and do as the boob-box tells them. And the Press never says anything as it really is...because it doesn't sell.
Signed more laws and executive orders amending the Constitution than any president in US history.
Uh no, I guess you never heard of one Mr. William Jefferson Clinton, who practically re-wrote the Constitution in EO 13083.
Presided over the biggest energy crises in US history and refused to intervene when corruption was revealed.
Well as I stated out earlier, the energy crisis was actaully caused by Bill Clinton. Who gave Enron many millions of Dollars to build a power facility in India, and than India decided to not pay their bills, and Clinton did nothing about this.
Presided over the highest gasoline prices in US history and refused to use the national reserves as past presidents have.
I guess you are 12 years old. In the 70s, was when the gas prices were the highest (are your forgetting to account for change in monetary value). And using Military reserves is useless.
Clinton used the many billions of gallons that had to be dumped anyways (so I won't criticize him for it), and it only lasted 2 days...maybe 3 at most. Did NOTHING to lower the price. AT ALL.
Finally? Past presidents? Clinton was the first to dip into the reserves, and got sh.it for it, and it proved a failure. This paragraph is the biggest load of liberal bull I've ever seen.
Cut healthcare benefits for war veterans.
Good again, the Federal Government over spends, primarily because it is spending unconstitutionally, such as Healthcare benefits for veterans, these things must be handled all by the States, and Federal Income tax shall be reduced.
Set the all-time record for most people worldwide to simultaneously take to the streets to protest me (15 million people), shattering the record for protest against any person in the history of mankind.
That's because those people protesting Bush were Communists and ignoramouses who have no clue what's going on in the real world. And just want to see America dictated by the UN.
Dissolved more international treaties than any president in US history.
Please name the said treaties so that they can be analyzed individually. There are most likely good reasons, and finally international treaties are decided by Congress, the President can't make them or break them without the consent of Congress...so I guess Bush is off the hook anyway.
My presidency is the most secretive and un-accountable of any in US history.
I'm sure Lincoln's and Roosevelt's were more secretive. Hell sure the Atomic-Bomb is well known now, but imagine people asking what the hell is going on in New mexico in 1943!
Members of my cabinet are the richest of any administration in US history. (the 'poorest' multi-millionaire, Condoleeza Rice has an Exxon oil tanker named after her).
Condoleeza Rice I don't think is the poorest, that needs to be checked. Also the Founding fathers were richer. George Washington back in the day was one of the wealthiest men in America, far from where Bush is at on the totem pole.
First president in US history to have all 50 states of the Union simultaneously go bankrupt.
Actually this has NOTHING to do with Bush, but to do with the fact that States can not go into debt, therefore they must re-write and re-write the budget until it works. Their economic failure is not related to President Bush in any way.
Presided over the biggest corporate stock market fraud of any market in any country in the history of the world.
So? Did he commit a crime here? No...more liberal crap.
First president in US history to order a US attack and military occupation of a sovereign nation.
No LBJ did this too you know....have you heard of a little thing called Vietnam? South Korea was effectually occupied. Germany a sovereign nation...was occupied. I'm sick of this crud where are there FACTS that MATTER?
Hell does the unwarrented attempt to annex Canada into the US in 1812 not count as an attack against a sovereign nation? Are all the critics of the President morons who don't know history?
Created the largest government department bureaucracy in the history of the United States.
NO God damn it, Stop lying you little #s! Clinton did this.
Set the all-time record for biggest annual budget spending increases, more than any president in US history.
Well a little thing called the World Trade Centers kind of blew up and fell down....so this is pretty warrented.
First president in US history to have the United Nations remove the US from the human rights commission.
Thank god too, because the UN has turned out to become the Frankenstein of our age.
First president in US history to have the United Nations remove the US from the elections monitoring board.
You know I really must say. Considering only about what 12 presidents ever had to put up with the UN...1 out of 12 really isn't all that bad...get over it.
Removed more checks and balances, and have the least amount of congressional oversight than any presidential administration in US history.
I've yet to see where Clinton is not equally accusable of these charges.
Rendered the entire United Nations irrelevant.
Ok you can go live under some UN dictatorship ok? But I frankly only listen to the Law of this Land...the Constitution...
Withdrew from the World Court of Law.
There is no "World Law" the "World law" is not bound by our Constitution therefore we do not as American Citizens EVER have to adhere to it. Nor should any good citizen ever want to.
Refused to allow inspectors access to US prisoners of war and by default no longer abide by the Geneva Conventions.
Oh shut up...pathetic morons. The guys were shooting women for showing their faces...let them rot.
First president in US history to refuse United Nations election inspectors (during the 2002 US elections).
What the #? I'm sorry but the United Nations has no control over our Election proceedures. Congress the Supreme Court and the Constitution does. Kiss my ass UN.
All-time US (and world) record holder for most corporate campaign donations.
So what? And Democrats hold the record for getting the most chump change out of people's wallets, at least Bush isn't sucking the common man dry to fund his campaign.
My biggest life-time campaign contributor presided over one of the largest corporate bankruptcy frauds in world history (Kenneth Lay, former CEO of Enron Corporation).
Ugh, Clinton has had more dealings with Kenneth Lay than Bush. Bush and Lay were just friends, not business partners. Please shut up and go away now you're pissing me off with all this propoganda.
Spent more money on polls and focus groups than any president in US history.
Dude, what does this have to do with ANYTHING?
First president in US history to unilaterally attack a sovereign nation against the will of the United Nations and the world community.
Well man the UN has been around for only 50 years, so I hardly think it worthy of judging US history, which is 233 years old. No one tells us who we can attack. NO ONE.
First president to run and hide when the US came under attack (and then lied saying the enemy had the code to Air Force 1)
You're a real moron (not the poster the author of this sh.it article), MORON. The president had no choice. They hooded him and ran him off to safety incase if the White house or wherever the president may have been, came under attack.
The days of "Kings in the front lines" has been over since the invention of the gun, MORON!
First US president to establish a secret shadow government.
No god damn it...there has been a "shadow government" for over 30 years, due to the Nuclear threat, and it is NOT secret.
Took the biggest world sympathy for the US after 911, and in less than a year made the US the most resented country in the world (possibly the biggest diplomatic failure in US and world history).
Well sometimes, "What is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right." -- Martin Luther King Jr.
With a policy of 'dis-engagement' created the most hostile Israeli-Palestine relations in at least 30 years.
Yeah right, shut up ... idiot...and learn history. Hell Palestine has only been around since 20 years after Israel so what rights do they have to land anyways? Especially when they passed up land entitlement in the late 90s.
Fist US president in history to have a majority of the people of Europe (71%) view my presidency as the biggest threat to world peace and stability.
Europe's always favored the Soviet Union over the USA, they've always seen us as a threat, you think they just hated us over night? They hated us and our Nukes in the 60s, in the 70s, in the 80s, but not in the 90s, because Clinton sold out and sucked Europe di.ck
First US president in history to have the people of South Korea more threatened by the US than their immediate neighbor, North Korea.
Please show where THIS is the truth...
Changed US policy to allow convicted criminals to be awarded government contracts.
What policy? There's nothing saying policies can't be changed, especially if there is no policy to begin with (which there can be I'm not debating, just want a resource cited).
Set all-time record for number of administration appointees who violated US law by not selling huge investments in corporations bidding for government contracts.
What? Show me this law...come on you can do it...and then show me where they own huge stock in corporations bidding for contracts...furthermore didn't you know Harry Truman gave companies contracts because they were associated with his Mob boss and friend?
Yeah, see how conveniently they avoid the fact that Harry Truman not only USED to work for the Mafia, but was in such good terms with them he went to his "godfather's" funeral, WHILE HE WAS PRESIDENT!
Failed to fulfill my pledge to get Osama Bin Laden 'dead or alive'.
Well you capture one man hidden by millions. I don't see you out there hunting for him you chicken ass.
Failed to capture the anthrax killer who tried to murder the leaders of our country at the United States Capital building. After 18 months I have no leads and zero suspects.
This is so retarded..."tried to murder" it was such a miserable failure it wasn't worth worrying about and everyone was laughing at congress for running and hiding. And they think they have found the guy...in case you hadn't noticed...now they are just ammasing evidence.
In the 18 months following the 911 attacks I have successfully prevented any public investigation into the biggest security failure in the history of the United States.
Not really worth bothering about...they didn't investigate Pearl Harbor either...
Removed more freedoms and civil liberties for Americans than any other president in US history.
I haven't seen the Republicans remove any of my liberties or Freedoms...I only have to follow laws that the Constitution uphold. If someone tries to arrest me for the "patriot act" or whatever, in swoops the Supreme Court. And not until someone chooses not to obey the law, can they intervene.
In a little over two years created the most divided country in decades, possibly the most divided the US has ever been since the civil war.
This is a bit dramatic, and a load of Crap. I don't see any DIVISION what-so-ever. Moronic statement if you ask me.
Entered office with the strongest economy in US history and in less than two years turned every single economic category heading straight down.
No actually IDIOT.
Before the Elections the Analysts kept saying as people asked the question "Are we headed into another recession?" And they said, "No." for many reasons.
But they were wrong.
WRONG GOD DAMN IT.
Bush inheirited a bad economy, he didn't make one....god damn it.
