He put on blinders and earmuffs and ignored EVERY scientific study or hard fact that came his way. He may be a "good" person (isn't everybody when you're heart is big enough?) but he was a TERRIBLE leader and President. Cheers to the people who had the guts to speak their mind. And thank god they still have that right after eight years of Constitutional erosion.

Conservatives scream about how our kids are all taught how they're special, how we don't bother to keep score at little league games because someone might be offended or hurt. Boo hoo, they cry. What?! So it's a bad idea to not teach children about winning and losing but quite another thing when the highest office in the land is occupied by an incompetent! You conservative mind-numbed Bush supporters should go to Crawford with him. Do the Jim Jones thing, drink the koolaid, pat yourselves on the back for a job well done and disappear.
DITTO.

After these last 8 years, the GOP thugs will disappear, only to be seen again - in trials for war crimes.

I was not impressed.
And if you were a manager, and employee reviews were due, would you also tell the incompetent employee that just can do anything right and tries to cover it up with lies that he is doing a good job?

Or are you one of the current crop of school teachers that are passing failing students because to grade them on their actual performance would "hurt their feelings".

The blunt truth has it's place, and it can be constructive unless delivered to a complete idiot.

When loaded poll after poll tells a certain story, the sheep are all to happy to agree and go with the "conventional" group-think.

The media have also went out of their way to dismiss the successful strategy of fighting terrorists in the war on terror - by ALL means at his disposal. He has prevented another attack on this country, he has changed the schematic with a peaceful Iraq that will influence and determine issues in the mid-east. History will show that he was right and his policies, tactics and strategies changed things for the good.
Thank you for not taking any responsibility. It's OTHER peoples' fault. It's THEM. You even appear to justify resorting to the lowest of human activities, torture, when you write "by ALL means at his disposal". Hmmm. Is that one of his "tactics and strategies that changed things for the good?"

By the way, how come the "left"-leaning media (according to you) is so successful while your side never seems to get its message across? Six of Bush2's eight years were with Republican (I'll assume they're the "right") majorities. Yet, you blame the Democrats. Teflon everywhere, I guess.

You are a member of an infinitesimal minority that's grasping at straws to justify the horror of the last eight years. More than 5 billion plus people on the globe disagree with you and they can't possibly all be wrong.

I also feel this song would be appropriate:
No, it doesn't have anything to do with expressing an opinion or "free speech", it has everything to do with being a jerk, petty, classless and ignorant.

I have yet to have one Bush hater explain what killed the Kurds?

I have yet to come across one Bush hater who can explain how the POTUS is not supposed to rely on the agencies in place for information gathering?

I have yet to come across one Bush hater who can explain why all those liberal Congress people (Pelosi, Kennedy, Clinton, Kerry, etc.) voted for the war before they voted against it and EXPLAIN with FACTS that all those democrats would have had the issues they did EVEN IF 2004 election-mania not started up shortly after.

I have yet to come across one Bush hater who ever took a macro-economics class (let alone micro) and can understand how the economy cycles.

Vocal and clueless minority (this time classLESS can be added in) making all the noise and thinking they have all the answers and needing to blame something for their short comings and the way the damn world works, has worked and always will work, no matter WHO is in office.

Easy to ride the coattails of a previous administrations policies and the economy coming full circle again, let alone a tech boom (as Clinton did) . Hard to deal with really tough issues, the economy inevetibly going to cycle again as well as BS policies (hello housing issue) that (clinton) left for WHOMEVER succeeded his pansy rear end.

Bush apparently uttered today that he "led with conviction". Too bad he didn't end up with one. There is still hope!

I don't know what group organized it but it was rude. That may have been where the crowd from today got it from for all I know. They learned that type of behavior from the best.....REPUBLICANS!

If you think the economy is just cyclical you are mistaken. A house of cards doesn't have cycles, it falls mightily with but a gentle breeze.

I don't think anyone can explain the voted-for-war-then-changed-my-mind phenomenon but how come after realizing the war was a mistake didn't any one of these elected officials do anything to stop it?

Your biggest error in logic is assuming people are Bush haters without reason. There are millions of reasons. While some may blame him for practically everything, he did nothing to improve any situation in all areas of our lives. It doesn't matter where it started, it doesn't matter who was in charge when it started. What matters is what one does with it when one takes over the wheel. Apparently Bush didn't know how to drive and now we're in a ditch.

If people can't express their outrage, then you clearly aren't in favor of American values. Go back and tell me where in our 230+ year history we accomplished great things by keeping our mouths shut.

It is in fact the fault of the left for the financial debacle. It is the fault of the left for prolonging the war and placing our troops at greater risk with their malicious vitriole.
Indeed, at least on one occassion torture, for the loonies that can call it torture, if waterboarding is the issue, may have saved thousands of lives and it din't evenleave a bruise. Scared the hell out of someone probably, but no bruise. It woudl be sort of like holding a gun to your head and pulling the trigger knowing the gun maybe only had one gun in several chambers like the Vietnamese used to do. Naaa really more like waiting behind a door and scaring the hell out of you instead of cutting your head off as the enemy you are so concerned about would be prone to do. You libs make me ill with your whining. Pathetic Apologists!
