Um, ya, thanks for the neverending wars,
the tax cuts for the rich and the big buddy bailout
that decimated all the wealth we ever had!
They did their part alright....
of ruining the country and making a perfect example
of how clueless, arrogant and indifferent we really are!
Mission accomplished? I'd say so.

If dips like Carter and Nixon can keep their respect and if people actually care what they say, then Bush can't be that bad.

some of your points about bush are untruthful. for example, a war based on lies....the whole world believed the exact same lies. bush didn't make them up, he just fell for them. can't fault him for that. even congress voted to go into iraq based on the faulty intelligence.

That is only because Bush did not use all the speech writers that Obama uses.
Have we really heard Obama speak in public without all the scripted lines and the teleprompter.
Even in the pre election debates he knew in general what was going to be ask before the debate.
Some subject his team rigs so no tough questions are ever asked when he is not prepared.
Have you ever heard him answer any off the cuff question on guns control.
his team makes sure he is never asked.
Bush was a lot more open about talking with the public.
Yes he may have looked like a bumbling idiot, and a poor, clumsy public speaker sometimes, but many trusted that style better then the talking head we have now.

PUT THEM ALL TOGETHER=LESS FREEDOM.....WAKE UP!!!!!!!
- If a conservative doesn’t like guns, they don’t buy one. If a liberal
doesn’t like guns, then no one should have one.
- If a conservative is a vegetarian, they simply don’t eat meat. If a liberal
is, they want to ban all meat products for everyone.
- If a conservative wants to volunteer his time, he does and does it on his own volition which defines the word "Volunteerism" . A liberal believes we should be forced to volunteer our time and efforts which defines "slavery"
- If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat
his enemy. A liberal waits while he decides whether they will send troops to fight or not. On the rare occasion they have the balls to defend us, by that time, it's too late.
- If a conservative is homosexual, they quietly enjoy their life .
If a liberal is homosexual, they loudly demand legislated respect and approval of there debased depravity and if you don’t agree to their demands you are labeled for your hatred and bigotry as an excuse to demand even further legislation, protecting them from the reactions of their "in your face" militant name calling, that anything you say in anger is “hate speech” so they can scream loudly that which is none of our business to begin with.
- If a black man or Hispanic is conservative, they see themselves as
independently successful. Their liberal counterparts see themselves as
victims in need of government protection and entitled to all of our hard earned money.
- If a conservative is here illegally and gets caught, they quietly go along with law enforcement back to where they came from. A liberal screams, law enforcement is using "racial profiling" while liberals in Government, are dumb enough to even listen to this and even dumber to stifle law enforcements efforts to stop it.
- If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his
situation. A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.
- If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host be it radio or television he switches channels. Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down and taken off the airwaves so that no one can hear or watch them but complain about free speech if NAMBLA doesn't get a platform to talk about the virtues of men having sex with boys.
- If a conservative is a non-believer, he simply doesn’t go to church.
A liberal wants all churches to be silenced.
- If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping
for it, or may choose a job that provides it. A liberal demands that you and I should pay for theirs too.
- If a conservative doesn't like the public school system, they will qualify for home schooling their children resulting in higher grades and getting better marks on SAT's .
A liberal will call that kind of education "child abuse" and force everyone into the indoctrination of state run public schools until someone gets gang raped, beat to death or shot by one of their retarded students gone over the edge muttering the idiotic theory of natural selection by Darwin.
That about sum it up ?
