    Things could turn around in a day (or week) if they need to but how do you feel Bush is doing as President?

    I doubt that GW has ever "peeked." Clinton maybe, but not Bush. ;)

    Don't know, but I wish they'd quit talking and get on with it. All in all, I'm underwhelmed with the foot dragging, and the fustercluck with Turkey doesn't give me a good feeling about W having his ducks in a row.

    I'll never be happy with his stance on creating a "Palestinian" state. He wants to punish terrorists on one hand but reward terrorism on the other. Can't have it both ways. Unless a real Constitutionalist runs in 2004, I'll vote for Bush again; but, he's going to have to decide who's side he's on in this war.

    Still, he sure beats the heck out of Gore, or any of the Democratic Socialists for that matter.

    Let's look at Bush's accomplishments.

    He has federalized airport screeener.-- when has the government EVER been able to do something better than private industry?

    Increased the size of government. -- See the aforementioned airport screeners and the creation of the Homeland Security Department.

    Carved serious inroads into our Constitutionally protected rights. --You want scary imagine Nixon or Clinton with the powers the Homeland Security Act enables.

    Pushing for a war with Iraq, when North Korea has nukes and bin Laden is still at large.-- I think Iraq is bad, but not as bad as NK or even a big a threat as India and Pakistan.

    Pissed off the French-- okay this one I like.

    Bush was the lesser evil. But all adjectives aside he is still evil.

    Telewinz,

    But....

    Would you believe I am a college graduate from the old school? Would you believe I go thru a book in about 10 days? Would you believe I have been reading at this rate and better for over 35 years? Would believe I am a PRINTING Supervisor!?:what: OH the shame of it all!

    Would you believe I wanted to say "now I CAN die and rot away".:banghead:

    Two explainations for the "footdragging":

    1. Clinton screwed up the military so much in 8 years that it took us this long to mobilize.

    2. Gave the military ample time to set everything up very well while (a. identifying who our "friends" really are (internally and externally) and (b. allowing no one to be able to say that we did not give the U.N. another chance to self destruct.

    From a strict civil-liberties standpoint...

    Gore might have been better.

    Sure, he'd have tried to ramrod through the "Patriot Act" or something like it.

    But if he were in office, the Repubs would have at least made a show of fighting it.

    Me? I'm so bitterly disappointed in the Bushies that I will probably never again vote for a Republican.

    I didn't vote for G.W.Bush, but right now I sure am glad he's the pres.. I can't imagine Al Gore dealing with the International issues. He's a wuss. G.W. is the right guy at the right time. I think God must have a hand in the future of this country. He's looking out for us. G.W.'s got nads, big nads.

    I suyre hope he hasn't peaked! There's a lot of room for improvement!


    Am I glad he's in and not Gore? Hmm. I think so. But time will tell. As has been nicely pointed out, he's done a lot of damage to the Constitution.



    pax, I'm surprised at you. You ain't no dummy. If you are disappointed in Bush, you weren't paying attention to his campaign. He never sounded anything like a true conservative! I think he means well, but he hasn't a clue about the Constitution.


    Unlike Al, though, I think he is a genuine patriot, though misguided. (As in: Guided by all the globalists who surround him.)

    The government can do a lot better than low bid private industry. Take a look at the screeners they had before. Most were not citizens, could not pass a background check and were theives. What else could you expect from $5.00/hour with no benefits workers. Many could not even speak english.

    The homeland security dept. was necessary to bring all the departments together instead of competing with each other (for status and appropriations).

    Quartus,

    I didn't vote for him because I thought he was a conservative.

    I voted for him because I thought he was an honorable man who would take his oath of office seriously.

    It turns out I was wrong. The oath actually reads:
    I think Bush thought it read:
    Either that, or he's a slime.

    In any case, he has not honored the oath he gave; nor is his behaviour inconsistent with what we have seen from other Republicans (with minor exceptions here and there).

    Where were you when Al "no controlling legal authority" Gore abandoned his core "principles" to pander to the illegal contributors who facilitated the transfer of crucial nuclear secrets to our mortal enemies, the Red Chinese? Where were you when Algore broke federal law while raising campaign funds from his re-election offices?

    There's always the option of going to the trouble to do the research as to whom is the best possible candidate for a given elective office.

    Assuming, of course, that you won't be inconvenienced or discombobulated by the effort. :rolleyes:

    You may not want to accept the factual, but here it is:

    The Democrat Party is primarily populated by socialist thieves, race-baiters and congenital liars. They are in a panic because they fear that their hold on their base of blacks, Spanglish-speaking immigrants [the majority illegals] and squat-for-brains liberals [useful idiots] is in peril.

    I drive by Algore's Belle Meade residence several times a week. Do you suppose that he is finally a "Tennessee native"?

    He's no more a resident than he was when his daddy [a crook, too...and a racist] enrolled him in the most elite of private schools for the offspring of the DC "elite".

    Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. was, in point of fact, raised in a suite in a DC hotel, went to the most private school for the private and privileged in the DC area and launched himself into a distinctly undistinguished undergrad effort.

    His truncated "tour" in South Vietnam was calculated to help his daddy's re-election campaign [a miserable failure] and his subsequent enrollment at Vanderbilt U. was a disaster, even if his "major" was "Religion"...which offered him an additional military exemption.

    Al Gore, Jr. [yep, he's actually a "junior"] is a fraud, a hypocrite [you should see the EPA evaluation of his farm] and the author of a book which hints at mental unstability. His "Earth in the Balance" asserts that the internal combustion engine is the greatest threat to the world's population. :rolleyes:

    So...do you think that Albert, Jr., the proven fraud, has something to offer us citizens in fly-over country?

    I don't think so...

    Zander,

    Everything you say about Democrats is true enough. Gore is a pampered so-and-so who belongs to a party which proudly proclaims that it wants to control almost everything in America.

    Everything Claire Wolfe says about Republicans here is also true, as far as I have been able to discover. I got burned by voting for Bush last election because I didn't want to accept the factual.

    I notice that you left out the main part of my last post, to wit:
    Instead, the people who are most inclined by nature to put the brakes on bigger gov't and more gov't power, are cheering it on in bloodthirsty mobs -- because it's one of their own who is proposing it, this time.

    Bush is worse than a disappointment. He is a disaster for our freedom.
