    actually that isn't true in many cases-sucking down government entitlements might FEEL like self interest just as drinking yourself silly feels good In the long run it makes you a worthless dependent addict.

    which is what the democratic party wants-they need millions of addicts who figure the GOP is going to cut off their dope

    Re: Who still likes Bush?

    Like Zyphilin I'd say between mediocre and below average. I'm OK with his foreign policy for the most part. I'm a lukewarm Iraq War supporter. I believe that the initial decision to invade may have been a mistake, but that's will be a question for history. I'm glad that he decided to stay in an attempt to finish the job. While attacks may continue, the Iraqi government looks like it has a decent chance of maintaining reasonable stability for the forseeable future. Also overlooked, he, along with Clinton, fostered closer ties with India, which I believe will be useful in the future. I also think that he overeached Constitutionally with regards to the War on Terror. While I can understand some bypass of the Constitution in war time situations where national security is on the line, I believe that things like secret prisons and not trying a lot of terror suspects was a bit much. A bit of a mixed bag, but considering the situation, I think that he did an overall decent job.

    Domestic programs is another story. I didn't care for much of his social issues like a proposed anti gay marriage amendment to the Constitution. He took education reform in the wrong direction with NCLB, toward more centralization. He tried to reform SS, but he put in a massive expansion to Medicare, something that we just can't afford. The bailouts were when I officially stopped consiering myself a Republican. He picked some great Supreme Court Justices in my opinion, but overall, I'm not a fan of most of his domestic policies. History will be the judge, but I think that he will be more favorably remembered than he is today.

    what do you think Obama did when he said he was going to cut taxes for 95% even though almost half of those people don't even pay federal income taxes and then saying those who make over 250K a year were going to get soaked for the increased public spending Obama and his marxist lapdogs promised?

    its buying the votes of the many using the money of the most productive minority

    rebut that Obamunist

    greed and hatred is what motivates the left. The right is about achievement and free enterprise-the left is about taking from that from those who cannot or will not achieve--or gaining power by catering to the parasite class


    So the hard working minority (would those be only Repubs by any chance?) provide the money for the rest of us socialist, blood sucking lay-abouts... who just drink wine & wait for our welfare checks?
    Is this really the intelligent argument I'm supposed to argue against? (go straighten out the autographed photo of Rush you have hanging on your wall.....It's crooked)

    No, the argument there is stop voting to give our money away. It's not yours. Give your own and leave us alone.

    Stopping the torture is great, and Obama deserves his Nobel Peace prize for that alone.
    But Bush needs to be held accountable for the things he did.

    False.

    BAH! All real Americans should? SO I am not a real American for having a different view? Bull****. Why should we let the popular opinion of the rest of the world inhibit taking right action in the world. The French and German governments were against our going to Iraq since it broke their rice bowls. They synergized with the left in building opposition for the war. The war was the right action to take and we did. Excellent.

    For what huh, if your going to make these type of statement you might want to get some fact also. But since you are saying he should be tried for War Crimes so should all of Congress who 1) Voted for the War 2) Help write and pass the Patriots Act including Mr. Obama

    Also you really need to bone up on International Rules of War I suggest you go and read the Geneva Accords.

    If you think Mr. W Bush should be held accountable for things then you should have no problem having Congress also be held to the same standers that includes all of the Dem Leadership and yes Mr. Obama.
