Hi,Do you Like George Bush?What do you think about George Bush?
PD:Are you republican?
Yes,me too.I think that the Iraq War was a Mistake.I love the United States of America because I've got family in San Francisco but,A lot of people hate U.S.A thanks to Bush.Bush is doing hurt to United States image in the World...
I heard a comedian defend Bush as not the worst president ever. He mentioned the president of Selena's fan club as worse.
Other than that, NEM likes him.
I'm 50-50, I voted for him in 2000 but not in 2004.
I like :
- His tax policy.
- His attempt to privatize Social Security.
- His intentions, I think, are good and not self serving like some other ex President.
- His attempt to gut the world of terrorism even though it appears to have been wrongly done.
I don't like :
- His pandering for votes by adding to Medicare and not sending illegals back home.
- His attempt to express himself. I'm not sure if he's dumb or just a poor speaker.
- His spending but that was kind of mentioned on the first one.
I really disliked living in the U.S. under Reagan, so grabbed an opportunity to work in Scandinavia. When I came back, I was excited about returning to Clinton's America. In Clinton's America, people of color, immigrants, gays, Arab-Americans, and others had more freedom. They didn't have big bigoted government constantly trying to find ways to get them. In Bush's government, it's back to the same old right wing oppression. The right wing doesn't feel it or have empathy for it because they are not affected by it. Or, because they really don't care how government oppression affects the lives of those affected. I dislike living in the U.S. right now, but with the new Congress coming in, perhaps the country will improve.
What part of Spain are you from? I've spent quite a bit of time in Madrid and Barcelona. I thought Barcelona was absolutely amazing. It's really a miniature Paris, while Madrid struck me as the New York City of Europe. Someday, I want to spent a year or so Barcelona.
Here's a question I know you won't answer: Who is a more "vile, fascists pig"..? George Bush or Ahmad-jihad in Iran...?
Oh, BULLSH!T. I'm not going to speak to the Arab thing because that 9/11 thing happened. But don't tell me that gays and blacks have less freedom now than 8 years ago.
I'm from North Spain,A small city,Santiago De Compostela,Galicia.
Do you have family that actually live in the US, not San Francisco? They would tell you a different story, maybe.
Bush is surely not a perfect president, far from it, but I would vomit if he did tings the way Europeans do them. I think europe has become a socialist PC haven for radical islam, due to the socialist/liberal policilies in the last 15 years.
Being from Spain I guess I find that country most disturbing, because of their actions after the train bombing were exactly what the terrorists intended, maybe you guys should take the hook out of your cheeks and throw it back.
The 11-M Changed the country,We were with United States in Iraq War,Aznar,Blair,Bush (United States,Spain and England).Now we're a Socialist Country,with more freedom to:Gays,Inmigrants,Blacks...I Like this Spain,because I don't like the wars
Bush is no worse than the rest of those Slimey Creepy Grinning Scum Bags in Washington.
The thing about Bush is, he is doing something that all those other Maggots would sell their souls to be doing, "HE IS LIVING IN THE WHITE HOUSE" thats why they hate him. (they still can't get over it)
I don't like George Bush's "Love Affair" with Illegal Alien Mexicans. I voted for him "Twice" I would never vote for him again.
His support for Illegal Aliens has turned me sour on him.
As far as the war goes he did exactly what the democrats said they would do, he got rid of Saddam.
Patters, give me some specific examples of freedoms that have been curtailed/given back during those two administrations.
And leave out any sort of Anti-Arab/Muslim post-9/11 sentiment.
I'll await your examples. Or your anti-american bigotry.
I love this country (especially New England and Northern California) regardless of who's the president. Bush is a treasonous evil prick who doesn't give a sh-t about America. All the more reason to stay here and try to defend the Constitution against this murderous as-hole and his pasty-faced wierdo friends. America never changes because the leadership does. We will always have our good and bad points, more good than not. Don't judge us because our president is a retarded simian (apologies to the great apes who are all more qualified for the White House).
uhhh Wistah...why dont you include the term "Yellow bellied AWOL b*stard" in that statement..then we can start calling you NEM>
That wouldn't be original, though.
I have to shut my mouth again or I'll get the thread closed.
They sure had more freedom. Freedom enough to plan 9/11.
Anyhow, as for Bush...
I like his tax policy, his pro-active stance on terrorism, his 2 justices to the Supreme Court, idea of a guest worker program, and his decisiveness.
I hate his position on amnesty, on border security, HIS F'ing SPENDING!, his post war planning in Iraq, and did I mention his spending?
One thing that i like about GW is that you tend to know where he stands on issues, to me, that is important. I think leaders have to be decision makers, and need to have tough skin. When you have a guy like GW in office, you will get polarized views. It's because he draws a line in the sand, and people move to one side or the other. I like that because I at least know whether or not I agree or disagree, and know where he stands. It's evidenced by how much I hate his position on spending and immigration, and how much i like his tax policy and TWAT.
I can never understand why some people blindly hate a president as they do. I remember when Clinton was president, some people hated him with a passion. I could never understand why. I can see where you'd dislike certain positions on policy, but to blindly hate is really wierd to me. I don't like GW on some serious issues, but I don't let one affect my position on another. Afterall, if you like Amnesty, and hate the war persay, how could you hate Bush entirely? If you like his justices, and hate his spending, how can you despise him completely. My point is that no president or politician will be 100% wrong in ones eyes. I'll always give credit where it's due, and criticize when warranted. I don't think enough people in here are capable of doing the same. That goes for both left and right.
"I did not have sex with that woman."
I know this was addressed to Patters, but if nobody minds, I'll take a crack at it.
In 1991 I was a struggling college student. My folks did the best they could but the money was not there. I had just about given up hope at being able to graduate from the private school I was attending and had planned to drop out and perhaps investigate UMass or something. Then Clinton came along and Pell grants and Stafford loans stopped being the pathetically small things they were under Bush I. All of a sudden I could focus on making grades and not money while in school and I graduated. Bush II has returned the financial situation to how it stood before Clinton.
Yeah, I'm a WASP without the P. So I won't call myself a minority; but economic freedom and the freedom to learn are important, and I was quite definitely a 'have not' under Bush I and a 'have' under Clinton.
you mean like how clear he's been about giving the military commanders control?
or his insistance that they never said "stay the course?"...
or was it the part where they insisted they would not reveal body count, only to lean on it 3-4 weeks ago?
clear about Katrina? clear about surveillance? clear about energy policy?
are you kidding us? this is the most secretive and UNCLEAR regime since Nixon.... not surprisingly, the two men pulling the strings were Nixon acolytes... Tricky Dick Jr., and Ronald Dumsfeld...
Eight Years Ago Today Billy Blue Dress was Impeached
does anyone else skip right over this guy's nonsensical, irrelevant posts in large font?
I thought everybody should know that
Bush is the best thing that has happened to the Democratic Party in a long time, keep flip flopping, keep talking and keep making stupid decisions.. we can't stop you, but the impact he is having on the voters of America is significant.
Don't just skip 'em. Every now and again there's something insightful instead of inciteful in one of Harry's bloated posts. Figure on roughly 1 in 6 bein' worth your time.
That was on the news
No More War, let the RICH DEMOCRATS fight the Dafur War.
War Is Hell
Unfortunately, his god awful decisions have us all swirling around the toilet together, Dems Republicans and Independants.
As they say "its a big poo-poo sandwich and we all have to take a bite"
Except the uber-rich, of course, they get a tax cut. And the military industrial war profiteers...they get subsidized corporate welfare for the indefinite future.
But the rest of america, dig in your heels and get ready to sacrifice.
I've got my views about Katrina, and if I put them forth, most of you will attack me as a racist. Such is the ultra PC world we live in today. I wouldn't defend Bush's response to Katrina, nor would I blame him the way the press & public have. Of course, most in here believe that the government should take care of them so....
Bush was very clear about survelience. He backed it. What is unclear abuot his postion on that? BTW, that would fall under TWAT. The War Again Terror.
He's very clear about Energy policy. He doesn't have one.
Bush is a polarizing figure because you know where he stands on issues. That is my point. Whether or not you agree with his positions is your own business. I do on some, don't on others.
