    As an American, I was embarrassed to have such an obviously simple-minded man as president. I hated Nixon back in the day,but at least I respected his intelligence.
    As a American I'm embarrassed that there are so many simple minded and easily influenced people in my Country.

    Who allowed themselves to be influemced by Partissn Democrat narratives.

    If I said I can't stand Carter, either, I'm sure you would be singing quite the different tune.

    The notion that the Bush Admin was simply a victim of faulty intelligence is a canard. They used intelligence they knew was faulty or flatout incorrect.

    This is why I get angry/frustrated when Obama is pestered with scandal dandruff like Benghazi. So he changed some talking points? Maybe? Holy crap is that small potatoes.
    I disagree that it's "small potatoes." Everything the president does has an effect. I can understand your frustration with the Bush administration, but that is HISTORY now. There is not a thing you can do to change it. We have to concentrate on the current and the future. This is why continually bringing up George Bush's presidency is just kind of pointless.

    If God tells you something, you have to do it. Surely you understand. What if God told you to do something, would you do it? or would you tell God to shut up?

    No. The Iraq war was unnecessary and did incalculable damage to the United States

    It's not pointless. It shows the hypocrisy of both the Right and the so-called moderate Centre. Bush lies and lies and lies (over the course of years), costing 4000+ American troops and over a trillion in American treasure. Obama might have possibly... maybe... incorrectly conflated a terrorist attack with a Youtube video.

    The same people who lied (about the invasion) are trying to get back into power.

    That's relevant.

    Overall I think he was one of the better presidents we've had in a while.

    He was dealt a lousy hand but those are the breaks when you run for POTUS, I guess.

    If voices in your head are telling you to do something, then you're a crazy person.
