Yes, Photon, I did paraphrase your sentiments. You "haters" have a warped view of George Bush's presidency.
Suffice to say that when you say "haters" you're referring to a very large percentage of the global community (including the US of course) ..that
is- billions of people share this "warped" view. Are you sure it's not your view that's warped?
You paint him as an inherently evil person that only wished harm on our great country.
I don't believe he wished harm on our country, although I did wonder sometimes who's better interests he was out for.
You certainly do have that right to criticize, but it would probably mean a whole lot more if it was coming from an intelligent point of view
instead of a "knee-jerk" reactive one.
Knee-jerk. Ha! Are you calling my POV unintelligent? Typical. My view of Bush is 8 years in the making. I actually supported him for a fleeting
moment following 911. See I was downtown on Wall St when it happened. I wanted more than anything to find the culprits who were responsible for
blowing up my town for no good reason. He had the backing of the world (unprecedented) to go and take care of business. But we all know how that
turned out now don't we...
Bush represented perfectly the ideals of the American vision.
Really? Perfectly? Come on man....
A man of principle that held to his convictions, carried out what he professed and believed in, and didn't apologize.
Good for him- but none of it was for the good of this great nation or the world at large.
Point is, he and his administration are gone now. I couldn't be happier. Call me a doof, classless, unintelligent, or what have you- I could care
