    My distant relative is Al Qaeda's head. Ignore the ethnic differences, that is just there to fool everyone.

    I would not utilize torture at all so why would I support my Government doing it?
    You certainly have a different relationship with your loved ones than I do with mine. I would support it in a heartbeat to keep my family members alive and that is the view of the majority in this country. I have the greatest respect for the people of Britain who have always been our closest ally. I don't however have any respect for nearsighted people who have 20-20 hindsight.

    (Bonus points if you recognize the intentional irony in the above statement.)

    President Bush never looked so good. Next to the current buffoon, Bush looks like the second coming of George Washington.

    Fortunately, the majority of Americans agree with that statement now. Perhaps a return to sensible thinking is taking place, 2/3 of this forum notwithstanding. LOL

    The term for this is "damning with faint praise."

    I asked questions as I am trying to understand liberals. Seems almost like a cult whose members cannot admit when wrong.

    I watched both the NBC and Fox interviews with President Bush and wish he had been this open during his Administration although I knew there was more going on behind the scenes than the media was reporting. GW Bush did what was right for the American people and those with BDS will never get over it and have typical liberal arrogance that prevents them from giving him any credit at all.

    History will treat the man very, very well.

    Jefferson was treated much the same at the end of his term, as was Lincoln, Adams, and others.

    Once time squelches the foolish rhetoric and partisan emotion from the truth, Bush will be remembered in an entirely different light.

    And Obama will go down with Buchanan and Carter.

    Yes, because asking loaded questions always yields accurate results.

    You saw a man who was comfortable in his skin because he did what he believed was right. That doesn't mean he did everything right, just that he did what he truly felt was right, politics be damned.

    I still don't know what he was thinking those past two years with Medicare and TARP, though. My fear is that our current economic situation is vastly more dire than we know, perhaps even past the point of no return.
