    Of course Saddam had no claws in 2003. Our sanctions reduced him and his army down to a shadow of what they once were.

    All our occupation forces did was stir up the long running feud between the Shia and the Sunni and make up stories about the phantom al qaeda threat...

    Did you serve Iraq? How do you know what was going on inside the country and can you explain to me why the Military had such support for Bush as CIC and not so much for Obama?

    you are correct-in 2003 we invaded and castrated Saddam's power so most of that year (march on) he was declawed

    Exactly my point. Presidents approval ratings are based on their results, except for GWB, who has one of the lowest approval ratings in the history of country. He just got unlucky because he came in office during a small recession and left during a large one.

    The Depression was accentuated by Hoover's tax hikes followed by FDR's tax hikes
    The Government cannot create jobs and Obama has proven that once and for all.

    The people who do creat the jobs are the ones Obama and the Liberal idiots want to punish for making the money that gives them the ability to hire new people and start new businesses.

    Tax cut's alone will never be enough because it's also able perception. The whole economy is based on how good or bad people feel about spending what little they have.

    Now because Obama and his reckless spending has nothing to show for for doubling the debt faster than any time in history no one wants to risk a dime.

    It takes reduced spending and Tax cuts, and repealing the PHONY Health care nonsense that will only create more lost jobs, befor ethere can be any trun around.

    In California we are going to have to file Bankruptcy because of a new clean air nonsense that will cost a million jobs and drive what little business there is left out of State all because of the PHONY GLOBAL WARMING HOAX.

    The cost of everything sold in California is about to jump by as much as 20% electric cost is going up 30% gas will go to $9 a gal and it will cost a family where two people use the freeways to drive to work about $10,000 a year more to drive and that is over and above the price of gas,

    Attitude is everything and I am among those who will most likely moving out of the STATE soon, not because i want to but because I will have to.

    There is a revolution coming and I want to miss it.

    Bush record was spun negatively as the actual results prove. Democrat control of Congress started in January 2007. People voted for Obama and ignored his resume which showed someone totally unqualified to be President and yet the country bought the rhetoric. The results show that those who paid attention to the resume were right not to vote for Obama. he is a community agitator and no leader.

    I served two tours in Iraq in the good ol' Garryowen, seen combat in both Najaf and Fallujah. I can tell you that although there were no weapons of mass destruction, no Alqaeda presence, and we did start a civil war, bottom line is we freed the Iraqis from Saddams tyranny. Libs complain about spending tax dollars on Operation Iraqi Freedom, but then turn around and try to spend our money on healthcare and housing for Americans. I'd much rather see it going to helpless Iraqis who were living under an oppressive regime.

    Re: So How Did the Bush Tax Cuts Work Out for the Economy?

    One of my friends ran a business in California-it was involved in making high end archery gear. He moved the distribution operations to Indiana and he and his SO moved to Arizona because they were sick of the taxes. While it wasn't a huge business it still employed people and paid a fair amount of taxes. Some liberals think that companies have a duty to get screwed over by local state or the federal government

    I am a big supporter of companies abandoning parasitic environments and starving those who want to parasatize them

    Exactly, liberal rhetoric at its best. Bush's Final Approval Rating: 22 Percent - CBS News
