Yesterday officially marked the end of King Bush's reign in America, so who will we blame now for all the injustices, travesties, and woes in our lives? He was directly responsible for the financial meltdown of our economy, global warming, soaring fuel costs, the war in the Middle East, Hurricane Katrina, and God only knows what else!
I guess now we'll all just have to man up, and take responsibility for our own lives and well-being. I'm going to miss being able to blame GW for all my personal failures though..

Bush definitely played a part, but he couldn't have done any of these things without the full cooperation of Congress. A President without their support, is a lame duck, and can do absolutely nothing aside from veto.

so what are you suggesting lloyd, that bush and his cronies weren't responsible for the financial meltdown of the economy, i mean who manages the economy if not the government?
the fact that GWB refused to have anything to do with the kyoto agreement and constantly denied that there climate change was man made didn't exactly help with global warming.
bush lied to get the various wars in the Middle East going. he made up the facts to suit himself. this has been proven.
the mis-management of the fallout from hurricane katrina was bushes responcibility, ultimatly the buck stops there. he didn't do the right thing which means he messed up.
what else? gitmo, health care, the US is majorly in the red, the bank bailouts, the looming pension crisis, the looming housing crisis, GM foods, shaddow people, big foot and the loch ness monster.
