How so? Give some examples. This is what I call "Internet Bravado"
Bush has a 28% popularity rating as of this month, so it doesn't seem like anyone is agreeing with you.
This is one of the worst recessions we have had in a long while, and the dollar is at it's lowest.
So please enlighten us on why this man is doing such a great job?
Like you said, THANK YOU Mr. PRESIDENT.
Let's just hope the next one, John McCain, will be at least half the man GWB proved to be.
Since W isn't much of a Man, that old coot doesn't stack up to very much of anything! Hillary is more of a man than both of them!
Oh yeah, and to the original poster who doesn't agree with Global Warming. Like most Bush backers, you obviously don't read much of anything you don't agree with, so you must have missed this interview with W:
Interview with President Bush
President Bush had an approval rating of +70% when he invaded Iraq, he was also reelected for a second term, with ease. The only problem is that most Americans can't fight a war that lasts more then 10 minutes...
Technically the US economy is still not in a recession, although I concede that it is slowing down. All economies have ups and downs, it is only natural. With the increasing shortage of oil, due to increasing demand from Asian countries and a Russian economy that is growing very fast, soon a recession will be inevitable...
As for your Global Warming issue:
-I don't think anyone is denying it exists, the only question is why it exists. If humans are responsible, and I believe they are not, then why is there a Global Warming on Mars, on Jupiter's moons and throughout the solar system? Bet it is because a lot of Americans are driving their huge SUV's there, or could it be that huge bright thing that shines every morning?
- +500 scientists threatened the UN with legal action if their names appeared
on the so-called "UN Study on Global Climate Change". The ones that maintained their names there where either dependent on UN funds or scared of loosing their jobs with NGO's and panicking governments...
- The Medieval Warm Period, that preceded the Little Ice Age, saw temperatures of +5 degree C, in some cases, Iberian Peninsula, 6 to 8 C, than what we have now...(sorry for formating can't write with this keyboard)...
- The Temperature raise is not following the CO2 emissions, it is the other way around, if you check all the graphics, first the temperature raises, then CO2 emissions follow (largely due to increases in evaporation). By the way, humans are only responsible for 3 to 6%, depending on the source, of CO2 emissions...
- China has already taken first place in CO2 emissions, India will emit more CO2 then the USA by the end of this year. So it seems Bush was right not to sign that ridiculous treaty. Even if the Western Countries comply with Kyoto CO2 emission quotas, the increase in Global Emissions will continue to grow, due to the countries not included in Kyoto Protocol...
I do not agree with Bush on many things, specially social issues, but I believe his Presidency to have been generally positive, taking into account the problems he had to face and the bad advisers he brought into the White House. That for me is his greatest flaw, sticking with a bunch of idiotic, psychopathic Straussians, or neo-cons. I also fault him for keeping his focus on Iraq, ignoring some other, more easily solvable situations (like Venezuela).
All in all, he was no disaster, like Carter, and if Clinton had taken care of business (Islamic Fundamentalism) instead of worrying about Monica, maybe GWB's Administration would have had a smoother ride. Then again, who knows?
In my opinion he will not be badly treated by History but, like I said before, it is just an opinion...

Something's up. I never believed in the ability of a mass conspiracy until America's 2000 "elections". The 2000 American "elections" was, for me a real wake up call because who would have ever thought that such a person as Bush Jr. could be placed into one of the highest positions in our country.
I do not believe Bush won the 2000 elections fairly.

The Justice Department has proposed a new domestic spying measure that would make it easier for state and local police to collect intelligence about Americans, share the sensitive data with federal agencies and retain it for at least 10 years.
