    Congratulations to George W. Bush and the Republican Party for another historic milestone set by the Great Leader
    At 39 months in the doghouse, George W. Bush has surpassed Harry Truman's record as the postwar president to linger longest without majority public approval.
    Bush hasn't received majority approval for his work in office in ABC News/Washington Post polls since Jan. 16, 2005 three years and three months ago. The previous record was Truman's during his last 38 months in office.

    And the Torturer-in-Chief/Loser-of-Two-Wars has another 8 months to pad his record. Why all the BDS?

    Funny how Truman is now viewed as a revered President now...

    And you are insinuating that's what's in store for W?

    I would not hold my breath.

    Or share that thought with anyone...

    I didn't think of Truman as "revered," but I had no idea he had lower support for that long, it was a surprise to me.

    Wait a second, let me get this straight. So when a link was posted a week or two ago that had historians saying Bush would be ranked as one of the worst presidents of all time it didn't count because they were all "left wing looney college professors" and now you are relying on them when it comes to Truman?

    Japan attacked America, Japan was looking for a fight, Japan found their fight, Truman finished it.

    He saved lots of American lives. I hope that doesn't bother you.

    My Dad was on a sub headed through the Panama canal headed to Hawaii then to Japan, my Uncle was on an Aircraft carrier that endured kamikaze attacks off Okinawa. I am glad the bomb was dropped.

    Yes, because of course, as we've covered, in the view of the "bomb 'em all to hell" contingent, there were only two options back then: Nuke' em or invade the mainland. Nothing else.

    So very true when you look at the casualities on Iwo Jima and Okinawa the bomb was a great idea.

    Just for giggles check out the # of civilian casualities on Okinawa, the rape of Nanking, the Baatan death march and camp 731 and get back to us.


    It is amazing to view how you and Wildo view WW2.

    So this excuses the immediate murder of over 200,000 innocent civilians and the subsequent fallout that cost the lives of over 1 million? There are still parts of southern Japan that feel the effects of radiation. Quite the historian you are.:rolleyes:

    Nuking Japan was one of the worst war crimes in history. Thanks to the United States, nukes are now a legitimate weapon, and if Iran or someone else ever decides to use them, they will surely point to our bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki for justification.

    Although there are different points of view, I feel confident being in the company of the likes of Eisenhower, Leahy, Nimitz, MacArthur, etc. But, you know those righties, whether they are extremist Muslims or extremists of another religious tradition, many of them don't seem to have much compunction about blowing up civilians as long as it's a means to an end.
