    Yeah, I didn't see the point in calling him on it, though. No libertarian would claim Clinton was "good".

    What's more astonishing is that most who remember Clinton as "top of the list" can name few substantive accomplishments during his presidency. Rather, they list warm fuzzies like 'times were good' or 'America was respected around the world.' Perhaps they think 'topping the list' simply means making the most talk show appearances...

And I believe a state of emergency was called right after Katrina, so Mr. Bush still decided to not dedicate FEMA, even though it's obvious that they needed the help. What Bush should have done, was wait for the Supreme Court to interpret what a governor's call for help is, and then after submitting some forms, he could have then sent Fema to help. That's essentially what you want. Bureacracy and bull****.

    And Remind Me, how am I wrong again???
    You must have supported Bill Clinton.

    It's Obama's war now, it appears he still has troops over there. He is one of the worst presidents in American history.

    In regards to Hurricane Katrina and FEMA please remember:

    It isn't FEMA's job to rescue people in disaster zones from rooftops.

    You do understand that George Sr. was really Mr. Reagans third term

    Hurricane Katrina is one of the best examples of media left-spin I've ever witnessed.

    Truth: The rescue operation in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina was one of the largest and most successful civilian rescue operations in history. If a similar disaster had taken place in Europe, Asia, South America, Russia, or anywhere else on earth, tens or hundreds of thousands would have died. The death toll from Katrina is estimated at about 1,800 or so. The first-responders launched a massive, thorough, and relentless effort to rescue stranded victims, most of whom could and should have evacuated days earlier.

    Spin: The Katrina disaster, as a result of Bush and FEMA's slow and inadequate response and bumbling, resulted in countless deaths and untold human suffering.

    You do understand that Bill Clinton won only 43% of the popular vote in 1992. If not for Ross Perot's media-supported third part candidacy, George Sr. would easily have defeated Clinton.

    Third party candidates who take GOP votes generally receive enormous media attention. Third party candidates who take democrat votes, such as Ralph Nader, are generally written off in the media as intrusions.

    What's is even more astonishing is how people have to make wildly inaccurate statements like the above to try and prove their point.
