    Nixon was a fine statesman and most of the ire against him is out of convention. He didn't pervert the democratic process so much as he was a victim of the American people's occasional awareness of perversions existing in the democratic process.

    George Bush was a pretty bad chief executive because he (1) instituted an ineffective education reform while the rest of the world is pounding our face into the cement on education (2) passed the buck on other important reforms for eight years because they were politically compromising and (3) engineered a war according to the precepts of an obsolete Cold War mentality that soaked up resources that should have been spent on the before mentioned reforms, which would have strengthened us domestically for generations to come. Instead, we're subsiding into a lesser power.

    Historians will always track America's decline from the world's sole superpower from Reagan onward, with special emphasis on Reagan and George Bush Jr.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    The last two administrations (Bush and Obama) are responsible for these lives lost.
    No, terrorists are responsible. Nice avatar.




    Do I hear "better than average president"? Going twice...

    Didn't edit that properly - it meant to say: I guess academic polls/public opinions aren't taken with real people?

    Sure we can. We target murderers and they target random civilians. We save more lives than we take and we build freedom.



    Someone could go to Demville and say 'hey, how about Carter' and the residents would know the person is a subversive. It's like walking into a Star Wars convention and being all 'hey, how about Jar Jar?'

    It's the normal partisanship. "If I don't agree with the results of the poll, it's obviously wrong." Show him a poll that shows people disapprove of Obama, and it'll be absolute gospel truth.

    Actually, I don't think that at all. However your straw man is silly and your contention that public/academic opinion polls aren't taken with real people is laughable at best.

    You Libs have nothing.. all you have is empty BS..
    Hahahaha?

    Wow...

    We target SUSPECTED murderers...not always known ones. Sometimes we don't even kill the target but rather innocent people. Oh yeah, but we're "building freedom" with bombs. Total nonsense.
