You are obviously joking - with a dry sense of humor ....... right?????

9/11 happened on his watch.
How is that keeping us safe?

Hypocrisy, is saying you will remove the troops from Iraq and then following the exact same time table Bush had already approved. Hypocrisy, is saying you will close GITMO and then putting it off indefinitely because you have no idea how to go about it. Shall I go on?
These are all actions Bush started.
What about the 4,300+ dead american military members; the over 30,000 with traumatic injuries; the over 100,000 Iraqis dead?
Or don't they matter because the dark lord ordered it?

If you are going to judge him for keeping us safe AFTER 911,you have to blame him FOR 911.....if you use that rational to set the standards of a POTUS,where were all the follow up attacks by "terrists" on other Pesidents watches or where were the attacks like 911 on other Presidents watches??

He was a failure as POTUS just like he was a failure in his life...drunk,low IQ,spoiled brat,poor manager,AWOL loser and that's just the facts and not taking the rumors of his closet homosexuality,drug use etc etc etc into account(aren't the right wingers supposed to slay gay folks ?)....ask Jeff Gannon,Victor Ashe,Ken Mehlman or Turd Blossom about the rumors next time you see them at a GOP fund raiser

We have the solutions. But the Dumbocrats aren't allowing input from the "right", and they wouldn't listen even if they did.

This is going to take a new American Revolution, and I think it is starting. These idiots have got to be tossed out, and our Constitution must be respected and upheld. The Dumbocrats are trampling on our rights and our liberty.

And for the record, I acknowledge that Bush was no conservative. But he was not a socialist either (Pelosi, Reid, Barney Frank, Chuck Schumer, Chris Dodd and all the others with them, and Barak Obama).

Tough talk....which is not surprising coming from a neoCON and that's what they are famous for...chickenhawking and tough talking while hiding out.


BTW...Why should the left allow input from the right now that the tables have turned??? The right got us IN this mess.

Of course, they were, when a Conservative is faced with a choice between George W Bush or John f Kerry, Algore, Clinton ,Obama or any of the other herd of Donkeys running they will vote for Bush every time. As a conservative, I am deeply dissapointed in W, as I was with his father, but I also recognize he gave us Alito and Roberts and he kept this country free from attack for 6 years.

He also LET this country get attacked if you want to look at it that way.You can't have it both ways...he takes the credit? He takes the blame.

The Republicans stood solidly behind Dubya for 8 long years (by the way, shouldn't Dubya be a 4 letter word???).

They threw their lot in with him - and are now receiving the fruits of their labors - only all the fruit is rotten to the core - oh well - win some - lose some - lose some really really bigtime - like now...

Who would have imagined 8 years ago that Dubya would come fairly close to destroying the country, and that he actually did destroy the Republican party for at least a generation as a credible national party...

I wouldn't blame Bush if we were attacked in March 2001, nor would I blame Obama...

One month in office is clearly far too little time to bring about any change or be responsible for current situations.
