Bush left us with a needless and very expensive war in Iraq...

Bush left us a red vs blue country...

Bush reduced many of our civil liberties, and ruined our reputation throughout the world.

9/11 happened on Bush's watch - and we never made a strong effort to bring Bin Laden to justice.

Bush ran our national debt over 11 TRILLION dollars - he more than doubled the debt...

So - what did Carter do that could remotely compare to this? And don't just say high interest rates...
No, not just high interest rates. There was also the extremely high unemployment, the Iranian embassy hostages, the failed rescue attempt, and the rapid spread of the soviet union through many parts of the world because of his weak paper tiger approach to running our country.

I think Carter was pretty scarey as a Palistiian terroist sympathizer, and he drove our economy into hell. Also wasn't it Robert F. Kennedy that got into the Viet Nam war???

The fact of the matter is, Bush did a bad job. And its not like he just messed up his job, he ruined people's lives with his decisions. People say he kept us safe, which he did from terrorists. But there was no one to keep us safe from him, as he forced America into bending to his will. I mean really, there was all this talk of if you speak against Bush, then the terrorists have won blah blah blah. But really when you think about it, what wouldn't terrorists like more than American's losing their rights directly due to their attacks? In my opinion, if you take away what makes America great, the freedoms we were privileged to have, then the terrorists should be the ones with the mission accomplished sign instead of Bush. At least they actually accomplished SOMETHING.

Bush's dictator comments:


YouTube - George Bush, dictator

You don't get everything you want. A dictatorship would be a lot easier." Describing what it's like to be governor of Texas.
(Governing Magazine 7/98)

-- From Paul Begala's "Is Our Children Learning?"

"I told all four that there are going to be some times where we don't agree with each other, but that's OK. If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator," Bush joked.

-- CNN.com, December 18, 2000

"A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's no question about it, " [Bush] said.

-- Business Week, July 30, 2001

Of course you are the same person who posted a Porno website and claimed it was a picture of US troops raping a women.

Logic give it a shot some time.
Hmmm, so socialists are never to be trusted. They can't report the news accurately. but of course you can find the same info in American newspapers, which are actually the only newspapers a person can trust 100 percent of the time.

But thanks for admitting that rape is a bigger problem in the military than you thought.

Well guess what Mattie Jo,

Bush's base abandoned him hence his low approval ratings. Many of them refused McCain too. Heck, Bush and McCain governed as democrats but had an R next to their name because they forgot to change their party registration.

The question is, will you continue to worship and sing praise songs and write poetry about Obama as he establishes his own Civilian Security Force?

With an economy in shambles, why do we need to spend another $500 billion on a domestic police force that answers directly to Obama?

72 hours in and it's total failure.

He's put a tax cheater on his team to fix the economy! OMG!

He can't even get his swear in right while the entire world is watching.

He presents pastors and entertainers that preach race hate.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Should have read the fine print!

So if I posted a link from Rush Limbaughs website you wouldn't have any problem with it? BS

Once again she provides no credible sources for her claims. Have to love you you guys think you are always right all the time. Big enough ego?
