    He's president of the greatest country in the world!!!!
    He was chosen twice(and probably 3 times if that would constitutional) by the world's best and brightest.
    Surely no one in the US would vote for him otherwise. The USA is the land of the free, that surely wouldn't be told what to do by big corporation owned media?

    Hey now. Hopefully you know me well enough to know I would not ask if I truly didn't want to know.

    I am being serious. I truly feel that if anything good has happened, it has been lost in war rhetoric and I genuinely am drawing a blank.

    DAMNIT! I was trying to leave my party deliniation out of it, but here goes (I'll get you for this my little pretty:biggrin1:). I thought my politics were in line with the GOP way back early on (my cousin is former State Secretary for the Kansas State GOP). Then as I did my homework, I saw I was leaning more Democratic. So to answer your question, no. I am not a black Republican, I am a conservative Democrat (Think Lloyd Bentson).

    Bush is incompetant. His focus has shifted so much since 2001, and his insistance on the evangelical democracy that he has pasted in Iraq has cost almost all programs that would have bettered the USA to get second hand funding and interest.

    New Orleans, anyone?

    Education?

    Better wages for minimum wage workers?

    Lessening our dependence on oil?

    Thinking global warming is not real?

    Making the world think he is a first class bumpkin? ("Bring 'em on!")

    Using Condi Rice as a diplomat in places that don't trust women (and she looks angry and sour ALL the time)?

    A guy who talks to God on a hill at his ranch on a regular basis?

    A man who claims honesty, but won't tell anyone where he was when he went missing from military service?

    for starters....

    Go ahead and cite your long list. In several threads now, you've been playing your "I'm just a poor innocent noblewoman, and the peasants are saying mean things about a man I admire" act. It's wearing thin. If you aren't going to stick to the topic, why do you even bother to post in it?

    Precisely. So don't insult people to prove your point. Other than the fact that our Constitution guarantees free speech, and the fact that you don't/didn't live in Iraq, what's good about George Bush?

    Governor Ann Richards said it best:

    "He was born on third and thinks he hit a triple".

    How can we forget one other illustrious achievement, he managed to avoid going to war and Vietnam when it came his time to serve. As did several members of his inner circle. Yet he has no problem sending others to serve.

    His business dealings are or at least were corrupt. He had many failed businesses and only recovered from them because of his dad's money.

    The question is about what he has done for the good of the country, NOT about his perceived character traits. Fathering two children...makes the world a better place how exactly? I would like to know his IQ though.

    And he may have had legislation passed but was it helpful? Or was it just an invasion of people's rights and 'freedom'? I don't know since I'm not American and I don't care much for politics.

    I just want to steer this thread back in what I think was its original direction. This is about what has George Bush done for AMERICA.

    Let's put it this way the 'regulatory climate' is much better under Bush and facilitates business profits.

    AH, it should be "what George Bush has done to America" , not "for" America.

    For? Very very little. To? widen the gap between the rich and the poor.

    That is the difference between conservatives and liberals. Conservatives go for giving the business climate a boost directly. The liberals do it by enacting more regulations that add more tax and give business more work to do in accomplishing those goals. Such as emissions controls on cars. Add thousands to the cost of a car. Workers had to make the parts. Tax was paid by these workers and on the sale of the parts. That is socialism. The government regulates everything, takes all the money, hands it out as they see fit. That's why full socialism has never worked. Once people realize that they can't better their situation no matter what. That they will will get medical care, food, shelter, energy, transportation, etc, whether they work or not. They just won't work, or not very much. If I didn't have to work to survive, and if work didn't or couldn't lead to something I want,
    why would I work? I damn sure wouldn't...

    Thank you.
    I'm sad to know that only a few couple of people here stuck to the point of this thread. The majority saw it as one more chance to put the others down. It is uncalled for. We all know most of the people here are against George W. Bush (me included). But the point of this thread is the opposite of what it turned out to be.

    Maybe next time I'll ask "How does Quantum Physics relate to the Doppler effect under the Chaos Theory?" and get the answer I want, since, apparently, a simple question like the one in the opening post isn't clear enough. :confused:

    Well, in my own "noble" opinion, it would fall on deaf ears here, oh and btw, who's insulting who here?

    You can not know for certain that it would fall upon deaf ears or eyes if you won't even bother trying to make the list Show what you have or it will be admitting you have nothing.

    I may be hearing impaired but I could still read your list.

    As MMM said, please present it.

    I don't really have a list, I was just trying and once again failing to make what I see as a valid point, and that is that the majority or people here won't care what he has done that is any good because they don't listen, they just argue and hurl insults at one another. I agree with what Arliss has said, I also think that no president before has had the magnitude of problems that president Bush has had to deal with. I admire the way he had a backbone after 911 when this country was in a state of deep dispair and confusion...I know his popularity has waned, and I never said he was perfect or that he had all the answers, but I respect him for what I see is his strength and that he doesn't bend over to be popular. I guess we all interpret what we see as good in different ways, and that is my interpretation.
