    Bush isn't really "hated" by anyone of significance. The most I can say for Bush is that I think he was incompetent and that his foreign policy was disastrous. But I don't hate the guy.

    I think he stated he would spend more on education and such, he just let the Dems like Kennedy write the bills. I didn't agree with it

    Yeah, time of another monkey morph photo, what didn't you post that? Obama would have soiled himself on 9/11, because he's a nutless wonder. That's why those in the ME don't respect him, hell they don't even fear him. Bush knew that only the introduction of liberty could ultimately defeat the terrorists. The war just the method to start the process.

    Strange, that's how the US was started, by a war against an oppressive regime.

    This does not bode well for Obama...if the jews abandon him...they are some of his staunchest supporters and donors. I am ALL FOR total support of Israel.

    Bob Turner, the winner, cast the election as a referendum on Obama’s stewardship of the economy and, in the state’s Ninth Congressional District, which has a large population of Orthodox Jewish voters, the president’s position on Israel.
    Is it that Obama didn't support Israel enough? Or could it more likely be that the whole of the government, R and D, have ****ed us over so hardcore that we're going to see a lot of replacement when we have the chance?

    Also, **** Israel. Why do we have to "support" them? Let them support themselves.

    Because I'm not a partisan hack. I'm just telling it like it is. And I highly doubt most posters, even on this site, disagree with me on that comment.

    That's why those in the ME don't respect him, hell they don't even fear him. Bush knew that only the introduction of liberty could ultimately defeat the terrorists. The war just the method to start the process.
    And people in the ME respect and fear Bush?

    I suppose that makes waging a global war against all oppressive regimes a brilliant idea. Why not let's all be happy and live in a democratic global utopia, and bleed our treasury dry because we are "sticking to our principles." Jesus American, you sound like a ****ing liberal.

    Because we are at least partially responsible for their problems...what with having helped plan and impliment the recreation of a jewish state in the 40s.

    He'll likely be replaced. There's probably going to be some house cleaning since in all this time the government has done nothing for us in terms of fixing the economy. We won't be better off for clearing house since we're replacing the R and D with more R's and D's; so we won't net anything out of it. I just hope the Republicans can put up a candidate that isn't worse than Obama.

    That was England and the UN. Let them deal with it. Besides, that was over 60 years ago. They're big boys and girls now; they can take care of themselves.

    Yeah, let's let the entirety of the Middle East be turned into a massive caliphate run by the Muslim Brotherhood. Fear of Israel is the only thing that keeps that region in check. They "take care of themselves" better than any nation in the world; I wish we had their resolve.

    No, he was hated because he was an idiot and got us into a war we're still fighting and wasting money on and that he was a partisan jackass who pandered to special interests. Much like Obama.
