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 .

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.
(Btw, I got my tuition for four years if I taught for two in chem/physics--a needed area in 1971--I taught 33)

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'.
'What kind of sick and twisted toy factory is this?'
'We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, the best of us is washed away.'
"Better to be dead and cool, than alive and uncool."
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.
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 The Barry Goldwaters of the world have been replaced by the Dick Cheneys of the world and it's a damn shame.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 It has moved very far to the left as the JFKs in the party have been replaced by the Obamas and Pelosis.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?
