He never set foot in the City once during his entire 8-year term as President. This is going to be very interesting...

From the article:
Actually, the folks on Indymedia are already plotting to give him a "heartfelt welcome."

Yeah, I bet. LMAO.

And so what if he did or didn't set foot in the bay area while he was Pres. He is a huge baseball fan, used to be part owner of the Rangers (of course you know that) and tries to see as many Ranger games as he can.

Welcome G Dub. In a way I feel sorry for Bush, I honestly believe he was not the actual president making the moves his 8 years. Cheney was and he took all the heat for things he didn't Really believe in. He seems like a completely different person now.

I think it's a bit more complicated than that. Bush pretty much replicated his way of governing as President when he was governor of Texas, i.e. emphasize and stick to a few major agenda items. This suits him well - it's easy to do in terms of campaigning, and it doesn't expose his relatively shallow base of knowledge on many issues.

The problem is that by doing so, Bush pretty much ceded economic and foreign policy to Cheney, who IS very knowledgeable and has his own agenda! And that was a tacit agreement with both of them.

Yes, we can attribute a lot of influence or the policies to Cheney, but remember, Bush, as the president, permitted that to happen because it served him well, so we have to hold him responsible. The buck stops here!

True, I guess I'm saying he doesn't deserve ALL of the blame for his failure as president. Its seems to always be Bush Bush Bush. When in reality the criminals surrounding him should share the majority of the blame, a lot of the time Bush looked very confused about the situations he was in.

Alcoa & Haliburton profited billions from the Iraqi war. The Vice-President and Treasury Secretary owned major stakes in those companies. Anyone with an IQ over 75 knows how much Bush Jr dug his snout into that cream pie.

What did I say earlier troll. Stick to bashing Oakland and pretending you're a real estate agent with several homes and black belts it's more fitting of your sociopathic personality.
