Or is violating international treaties ok when it's a Republican doing it?

Hey at least our cities aren't going bankrupt like Democratic ran California or having the Mafia run things like in Chicago. Speak of the devil you're from Illinois too, Chicago's murder rate, gangs, & Black on Black violence should seem normal to you.

I liked Bush a lot as a person. Voted for him both times. That being said he spent way too much damn money! Not to mention grew the government quite a bit. Could have done without those among other things. But in the end of course I'd take him over Obama.

Fiyero, Texas has produced only one crappy president and that was LBJ. Talk about growing government.

Y'all gottta' love a guy who gave 2 massive tax cuts to the rich while spending money like a drunken sailor. Yes, I long for the days when we went to war in Iraq based on the biggest lie ever told to the American people; a pointless war that cost us over 4,000 men and women in uniform and over 100,000 Iraqi civilians. Those were the days.

If it necessary to rub your nose in FACTS, here is a thorough investigation by snopes that finds the major democrats from Bill Clinton, John Kerry, Madelyn Allbright, Tom Daschle, Ted Kennedy, ...etc.,..etc...saying as much. Have fun in your learning experience....

To quote republicans in congress now "well he is the president"

Bush expanded us debt growth more then any president before him. He sold Iraq on the threat of a nuclear weapon that didn't exist. He expanded government in Medicare and education while removing consumer protections from investment banks and all but ignored the coming housing bubble that he helped create.

That isn't rewriting history its an acknowledgement of reality.

Is that how this works?
That had nothing to do with 911, years of meddling in the Middle East perpetrated 911. Wise up!
