    3) The Bush administration spent and awful lot of money for a "fiscal conservative"

    4) The Bush administration extended the rights limiting Patriot Act before midterm elections to ensure its passage

    5) GW cited a personal grudge for invasion of Iraq

    6) The Bush administration neglected patients at Walter Reed

    7) The Bush administration illegally fired US Attorneys

    8) Scooter Libby's "brush with the law"

    9) Bush's failed promise to get Osama "dead or alive"

    10) Illegal Wiretaps

    11) The fall of the dollar

    12) Torture of detainees

    13) No Child Left Behind

    I cant keep going if you'd like...

    Smoke and mirrors...I was referring to this particular article being unsubstantiated. I won't even bother with responding with the rest, since it's off-topic.

    I was citing the substantiation behind my bias. It was an appropriate response to YOUR off topic rhetoric...
    and so it goes...

    We would have had to fly through Iraqi airspace to invade Iran, so strategically, invading Iraq was a good idea.

    2) The Bush administration gave no bid contracts to corporate entities with direct connections to the administration
    Shaw Global CEO Jim Bernhard, who was a DNC honcho in Louisiana got no bid contracts to fix up New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

    6) The Bush administration neglected patients at Walter Reed
    PBO wants to try and talk vets into giving up their medical bennies.

    10) Illegal Wiretaps
    PBO's snitch website

    11) The fall of the dollar
    Surprisingly, that happened after the Dems took control of Congress.

    Called FEMA buddy.

    Anything Mr. Towey says would be subject to some... uneeded bias. That "article" is as objective as O' Reilly defending himself about calling for Tiller to be targeted.

    PBO's snitch website
    Relevance? Oh, yeah, there is none.

    Surprisingly, that happened after the Dems took control of Congress.
    I can't help but notice that the problem we are in right now was set up in the first 4 years of Bush's Presidency...really, this problem was spawned during Reagan's and Bush Sr's presidencies.

    I can't help but notice you don't even try rebuting more then half of the facts presented to you. Good for you!

    I wasn't going to, but apdst did a wonderful job for me. He even provided sources I didn't immediately have.

    Are you sure you're no talking about North Korea? Because Iran has a coast. And we have kick a** amphibious assault boats, and hovercrafts.

    And, you want the government to run health care???
    I don't want a Republican Government to run health care.

    Yes, it was such a bad idea by congress and George W. Bush (Ted Kennedy as well, by the way) that the current administration is merely tweaking it and supporting it.
