    What a ****ing loser, him and Cheney, to have wasted so many lives and trillions of dollars for nothing.

    For that $, we could have had every residential home and building in the US set up for solar power. (It's approx $40,000/one family home, & works even here in the cloudy NW)

    Not only that, we would have probably succeeded in Afghanistan, where we were winning until we turned our attention to Iraq and could be out of there by now too, with our soldiers not still being killed and maimed.

    Obama is the current president. He has been in office for 6 years. He has had 6 years to change anything and everything Bush did. The Bush posts are all off topic. Bush is not in office. He's been gone 6 years.

    I beg to differ. Presidents of both percussions have to deal with legacy issues from decades ago, so 6yrs is miniscule in comparison.

    You cant force democracy on a people not ready for it or that dont want it. Is Obama a magician?

    And no, Bush ****ed up on letting Afghanistan get out of control....that didnt go 'as he expected' either. So that's another mess that is beyond control.

    Because of the criminal incompetancy (or deliberate) actions of the previous administration.

    What exactly does Bush have the power to do about this current situation which has occurred under the current president? I want the whole list.

    No one denies either of those things.


    LOL, that's like blaming a doctor for treating a sick patient...

    Who said anything about him having power to change things? I said, "presidents of both persuasions have legacy issues" to deal with. See the difference?
