Bush is clearly out of his depth and far to easily influenced by those around him. Bush poor decision making indicators that he is far out of his depth. Bush is just a figure head the real players in his admin are/were Cheney and Rumsfeld. Clearly when it comes to Iraq Bush was influenced by the Neo Cons many of whom later became members of his admin. Just to top it off Bush is a poor communicator of ideas and I'm not talking about his verbal blunders. Bush is unable to communicate ideas effectively. Those quality's by themselves aren't too bad but when all the boxes are ticked you get a lousy leader and the disaster that is the Bush admin.
Don what interests me the most is the fact that you think that Bush is Mr Neo Con himself.
Of course this is the benefit of hindsight but the impression I get is that Bush’s heart was never really into the Iraq war. If Bush’s heart was in remaking the ME would he not have had the same resolve he had in the aftermath of 9-11?
I see Bush43's domestic policies as 100% consistent with Reagan-ism and the Neo Con socio-political philosophy which codified Reagan-ism. The Neo (New) Conservative movement will not rest until it has KILLED the social aspects of the Federal Government. These are best exemplified by the New Deal and the Great Society. The Neo Con choice of means to reach their goals requires incurring huge national debt so that ultimately, Congress will be faced with choosing between defense, debt and a rudimentary bureaucracy or incurring more debt (or raising taxes) which (debt) will become so large as to be unmanageable. The ultimate Neo Con Triumph! See Note 2. www.treasurydirect.gov...
Quote: ”Iraq continues to flaunt its hostility toward America and to support terror. The Iraqi regime has plotted to develop anthrax, and nerve gas, and nuclear weapons for over a decade. This is a regime that has already used poison gas to murder thousands of its own citizens -- leaving the bodies of mothers huddled over their dead children. This is a regime that agreed to international inspections -- then kicked out the inspectors. This is a regime that has something to hide from the civilized world. States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world.” End of quote. See www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2002/01/20020129-11.html
Don you should know by now that I enjoy reading your posts.
Elements of the agriculture sector in the US still get hand outs from the US government something that can only be termed welfare.
He's the worst ever
Bush has taken this disdain for law even further. He has sought to strip
people accused of crimes of rights that date as far back as the Magna
Carta in Anglo-American jurisprudence: trial by impartial jury, access to
lawyers and knowledge of evidence against them. In dozens of statements
when signing legislation, he has asserted the right to ignore the parts of laws
with which he disagrees. His administration has adopted policies regarding
the treatment of prisoners of war that have disgraced the nation and
alienated virtually the entire world. Usually, during wartime, the Supreme
Court has refrained from passing judgment on presidential actions related to
national defense. The court's unprecedented rebukes of Bush's policies on
detainees indicate how far the administration has strayed from the rule of
It is impossible to say with certainty how Bush will be ranked in, say, 2050.
But somehow, in his first six years in office he has managed to combine the
lapses of leadership, misguided policies and abuse of power of his failed
predecessors. I think there is no alternative but to rank him as the worst
president in U.S. history.
