    George Bush. Dick Cheney. John Bolton. Donald Rumsfeld. Paul Wolfowitz. And and the rest and their 'lets remake the world' agenda is a very large reason I am no longer a Republican.

    We went from being the world's cop to being the world's bully.

    Stop pretending to be clueless.

    The point is that the motivation to lash out at Bushy, for many Obama lickers, comes when they do a mental comparison between the two and they find it unacceptable that their own political judgment was SO SOOOOO wrong and they need to make themselves feel less toolish.

    So they feel compelled to pile on when asked to opine on Bushy's job performance.

    As if that will assuage their deserved feelings of inferiority.

    No more then the right's drooling fascination has with Bill Clinton.

    And with Bush it is really, really easy to pile on. The man was an awful president.

I don't know how anyone can objectively conclude after looking at the results of his presidency that he is anything but a bad president. Despite his presidency being a unmitigated disaster he seems to have a loyal following here.
    Absolutely not. He initially campaigned on this platform of no nation building and betrayed that as soon as he got the chance. He was a horrible President, as bad as Obama, and grew the government in horrific ways that were then continued by Obama.

    All around terrible.

    There are some Gays who choose to be homosexuals.

    There are some voters who voted GOP who choose to be Republicans.

    Neo Cons are new conservatives. Liberals who saw the light and chose to become Conservatives.

    Neo cons are the ones at the heart of the causes which impelled you to your separation.

    And it also says something about your true orientation.

    Does the term, RINO, mean anything to you?

    ALL about trying to reach across the political divide to give the LW'ers and LW Americans a little of what he believed would make them happy and show that he was was trying to be a POTUS for ALL of America.

    And this is how he is thanked by BOTH sides.

    All it proves is that the next GOP POTUS should absolutely and completely stick to his Conservative 'guns' and not acquiesce in the name of bridge building to the Left as it won't help America, it won't appease them anyway and it will make him sorry he even tried!

    The next GOP president will be a Republocrat Status Quo Supporter like Bush and Obama. He didn't try to "reach across the isle", our politics have been of a huge slide down partisanship and polarization, and this was happening during Bush's reign as well. As evidence by your post itself.

    If/when a Ben Franklin style list of pro's and con's is ever done for both BJ Clinton and W's presidency I think you would be left sputtering the "but...but's."

    I haven't the time nor inclination to educate you at the moment.

    But you have a lot to learn.
