I have a laundry list of Bush policies that I found quite upsetting, but what really "ticked me off" the most what his policy of not allowing photos or news footage of ceremonies of military personnel killed in action as they returned to Dover AFB in flag drapped coffins. When he suppressed the U.S. media on that, I knew right away that Bush was up to no good.

Comrade Commissar Bush ticked me off the most with the socialist bailout.

None. Mr. Bush was a dignified person and I the decisions I am most thankful for are the Supreme Court appointments, because Roe v. Wade is only 1 judge away from being repealed. I am dissapointed by the bailouts and this financial mess, but overall I would give GWB a job rating of B-.

"disappointed" about one of the most socialist policies to date, depleting the treasury and initiating a US bond Ponzi Scheme that will ultimately destroy the worthless dollar?

I'm against RvW and believe it should be handled by the legislative branch or by the states, but I'm not crazy enough to believe there needs to be a federal ban on abortion. Are you?

You ever heard of respect? Let one of your family members die, and let's get the media to the funeral and burial with news cameras and reporters asking about your grief. Let's let a photog set up his equipment and get close-ups of you and your loved ones crying. Let them get the glisten of the tears as they fall down your cheek. Then they can publish them for all to see. One thing Bush haters don't realize is he is on a totally different level than they are, morally. As is most of America. Many of the decisions like this one he made were out of class and respect. It is hard for someone who is full of hate with tunnel vision for attacking certain people to "get it".

Respect as in, say, leveling with the American people about the economy the past 12 months?

We're not in recession.
We're not in recession.
We're not in recession.
Bailout, bailout! MASSIVE bailout or we're all gonna die!

He's a slimy politician.

Some class.

The one positive about Bush's tenure was that he did in fact unite the conservatives and liberals who both thought he was a nitwit.

Only RINO neo-con-munist party line retards really support him now.

Forget the economy, I'm just pissed I didn't get to see news footage of our dead military folks.

If this topped your "laundry list", I'd say that's pretty pathetic.
