    l agree but l also believe many other parts of the world seem more democratic than these dictatorships because the people of these countries believe they live under democracy .

    I keep trying o give Bush credit. His mess, his lies, his deaths. I agree he deserves credit.

    Again, not following you. I see it only one way: Bush lied, was reckless, spent young American lives, spent tens of thousands of Iraqi lives, made more mistakes than one would think possible, so yes, he deserves credit the worse policy decision in my lifetime.

    And never the twain shall meet.

    Hindsight is 20/20, and there are many regrets and "if only's." But I don't think Bush lied. I don't think he deliberately misled the American people.
