    Well, I guess that makes it all better then.

    So what? Does that make Bush retroactively right or something?

    The USA propped up Saddam throughout the 80's.
    And gave weapons to the Mujahadeen against the Soviets in Afghanistan.
    Bush/Cheney learned that "deficits don't matter" from Reagan, yet learned nothing from the Soviets being run out of the Afghan theatre .

    Yet most don't bring up the more than 30,000 soldiers wounded in action and now part of a swamped VA system.
    And all we get is Obama-blame and a filibustered VA bill, one that would have cost less than the October shutdown.

    Since the Bush decade produced a shortage of VA doctors,
    I propose a GI-type bill to pay for medical school, everything,
    if these new Doctors would work their internships for Uncle Sam as well as their first five years for the VA.

I think New England should join Canada and take these people along, even if it means extraditing Bush from his Texas ranch.
    But Canada and USA are new world countries compared to Turks. What would the odds be?

    Re: Was George W Bush a good president?

    I answered the poll "I'm a right leaning American, no."

    Bush was a horrible president. He and Obama are by far the two worst presidents in my life and I'm a Carter baby.

    He, along with both parties in Congress, got us into two ridiculously unnecessary wars.

    He trampled on the constitution and our liberties. Obama has taken his lead and done so even more.

    Bush was not a conservative, not a classical conservative any way. He was and is a war mongering neocon pig and to anyone that answered "I'm a right leaning American, yes" screw you! You're probably nothing but war mongering neocon pigs too.

    Just insert any POTUS's name and the answer is 'no'.

    I was born shorty after Truman took over, so I have no personal reflection on him being I was way to young. But I do from Eisenhower on. Now worst presidents are subjective to the individual, but my worst two president were Ford followed by Carter. Now the next two has to be Bush the second and Obama by a long shot below even Nixon. Which is worse, Obama or Bush the second? I don't know as the jury is still out on Obama as he still has two and one half years to go. But there is the distinct possibility that Obama and Bush the second could fall in-between Carter and Ford as my worst presidents once Obama's presidency is over and history has given us more time to rate Bush the second.

    But as far as I am concerned, Obama and Bush the second are interchangeable.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    In his farewell speech to the nation IKE warned us of the military industrial complex. That right there is at least worth ten points in my book.

    The left is always screaming about how the GOP is not your grandfather's GOP and they are right. The Barry Goldwaters of the world have been replaced by the Dick Cheneys of the world and it's a damn shame.

    HOwever the Dem party of today is not the Dem party of your grandfather either. It has moved very far to the left as the JFKs in the party have been replaced by the Obamas and Pelosis.

    So I guess we're pretty much screwed as a nation.

    By the way, what was so bad about Ford?

    Except that we are still in charge, at least for now. If only more voters realized just who was in charge of this republic we have, perhaps we could keep it.
    Its an unbelievably complex subject. Nobody knew health care could be so complicated. Donald Trump

    Who's the "we" you refer to?

    It sure as hell isn't the American people. We've not been in charge for a very long time.
