Sympathy is not what I feel. Disgust and pity fit the bill however.

I would vote for him for a third time if i could. I might be in the minority that approves of Bush, but it's a larger minority than those who approve of our Dem controlled congress.

That wasn't the point I was responding to in my post.

No WMD's - okay, the CIA was wrong, British Intelligence was wrong, several other countries had it wrong, the democrats were wrong, the republicans were wrong, and Bush was wrong. If out of all of that, you put it all on Bush and question the reasons for the war, then you seem to be saying either: 1. Bush was the only one that really knew there were no WMD's and he fooled everyone or 2. They all thought the same thing, but it's only corruption if Bush thinks that. I'll let you tell us which one you think.

There were links between Saddam and terrorism.

Anyway, back to the OP, despite the mistakes (I'm not a big fan), I would still vote for him over Kerry. Yes his approval ratings are low but not nearly as low as the democrats in Congress. So if you're taking a poll on buyers remorse, you may want to check with the Dems.

...and who was advocating the war?
Other countries followed us into this war because of other reasons;
US forgave their debt ...and more reasons that you are not aware of.

Learn this: ignorance will always bring fear and disrespect.

I actually feel pretty good having voted for Bush & Co. No, wait, I voted Libertarian, how silly of me! Whatever, either Bush & Co., or Libertarian was far and away better choices than alGore or JFinK.

The President, as the Commander in Chief, made his case and Congress backed it.

I thought the complaint about Bush was that he was not able to get support, now the complaint is that he was able to get support even from people that didn't agree.

Not sure what this means but I always heard ignorance is bliss.

In 2004, the people had no choice. John Kerry is a moron, a complete idiot, 100x worse than Bush.

I wish Gore had won in 2000, because he'd have apologized to the terrorists for 9/11, sent them a ton of cash to "appease them", and that would have been it. Then in 2004, we could have chosen a much better president and Congress would still be in GOP hands.

At least Gore is anti-illegals and Gore would have sucked so bad, the GOP would easily cruise to another victory in 2008.

The sad part is Bush deceived people that he was a Conservative, while in reality he is a Neo-Liberal (as Lou Dobbs calls him). He is a mix of a liberal and a Neo-Con. Bush really tricked us there.... Bush did NOT trick us into going into Iraq. Saddam managed to trick everyone that he had WMDs because he was afraid of Iran, he even tricked his own Iraqui generals that he had developed WMDs. What Bush did was trick us into believing he was a conservative, because he is a John McCain-style LIBERAL.

Of all the presidents I have been alive for this president is the one I would not be honored to meet. I did not vote for him either time and the people I know that voted for him are now denying it, including some die hard used to be Rush fans.
I honestly believe we are going to need a great president this time and unfortunately I see no candidate. Yes I have sympathy for most of those that voted him, they certainly did not know all the havoc that was to come. MY sympathy is mostly for our beautiful country that will take years to recoup our reputation and prestige in the world.
