Hello everyone, this is #3. I personally dislike Bush. I mean, why would anyone vote for him? I almost cheered at the bumper sticker that said "Somewhere in Texas, a village is missing an idot." So the other day I was talking to my half brother (Forgive me for rambling, I'm getting to the point) about figureheads. So I asked him, 'Hey Jared, why are monkeys and chimpanzees are always depicted eating banannas? A chimpanzee and monkey diet consists mostly of bugs and, in the chimpanzee's case, sometimes each other. So he says, 'I don't know, maybe because it makes them look cute?' So I thought about it and it made sense. Who wouldn't want buy a fruit that cute chimpanzees eat? Which brings me to my point. A texan retard becoming a president is a nice idea. If he can become a president anybody can. Which is partly true. To become a president, you don't need a fancy pants law degree, you need just two things. Connections and money. And why do you think he hasn't been impeached? HE'S NOT IN CONTROL! My guess is some billionare in Texas has Bush in his rodeo pocket. Please leave comments on the subject and how I did. Thank you.
*Glares at the countless threads about how Bush is doing a sub-part job*
Why vote for him? Because he seemed like a good guy to vote for in 2000 and in 2004 he didn't want to pull out of Iraq which would result in mass genocide between the warring factions and mass casualties as we left. He's not a good public speaker, he's not good at managing things at home, he doesn't plan ahead, he's probably corrupt just like every major political candidate that people are aware of.
Well, in the past two elections, its my opinion that all three major political party candidates (Bush, Gore, and Kerry) have been horrible choices for this country. But, thats just me.
woarber;3825701why do you think he hasn't been impeached?
Can give me a valid reason he should be? What unlawful thing the man has done? Use facts, not opinions or conspericy theories.
Political considerations aside, when George W. Bush is criticized, why is he always called an "idiot" or a "retard"? He scored a 1206 on his SAT's! That's roughly 80th percentile! I would assume that those who voted for him (myself included) felt that he was, at the very least, the lesser of two evils. I personally voted for John McCain in the 2000 primaries, but when George Bush won the Republican nomination, I felt that he was better suited for the job than Al Gore; I stand by that decision to this day. John Kerry, while definitely more charismatic and a much better public speaker, was not solid enough on the issues for my personal taste. I was not 100% satisfied with George Bush's performance at that point (2004) but I still felt he was a better choice that Kerry. George W. Bush while certainly not the best president the US has ever seen, is no idiot.
Let's get one thing straight, my post wasn't about how bad of a job Bush does, it's about how he DOESN'T do his job. As I said before, some billionaire has him in their front pocket. Second, public records can be replaced with a fabricated version. His father was the president after all.
And yes, John Kerry wasn't a very strong candidate either. That South Park episode made a good point. I'm not going to talk about it.* I'll get erased. *Google it.

Well what Bush should do that he would be "doing his job"? Just because you disagree with his policies doesn't mean that he isn't working on various things.

Or perhaps he is Putin's lackey or even Sith Lord? :eek:

Unless you have some proof for this bold claim it's nothing more than pure anti-Bush propaganda. Bush isn't a good public speaker, on the contrary he's clumsy in that respect but I'm sure that many other politicians are making many mistakes too when speaking for people or media but these cases aren't just recorded so accurately. Bush looks somewhat the same as chimpanzees in some specific pictures and there are also pictures where Bush is holding a book upside-down and looking through binoculars without actually seeing anything. However all this doesn't say that Bush is stupid or retarded person, that's just popular anti-Bush propaganda that has got so widespread. Not every Oliver Ordinary Graduates from Yale University, makes it to popular Governor of Texas and gets elected into the Oval Office.
I don't like George W. Bush because of his aggressive & unilateral foreign policy, social policies, favouring the rich & corrupt, trusting more on loyalty than competence, ignoring global warming and even creating/allowing fabricated studies against the point, meddling religion into politics, frigthening people at 2004 elections, wire-tapping, giving so much power for neo-conservatives in his administration and handling the war on terror & Iraq campaign (to mention the most of the points). I think that both John Kerry and Al Gore would have done a better job than him (though it's easy to say at this point isn't it?).
However saying that Bush hasn't done anything or that everyone could do better job than him is dishonest and even false. The US economy has been strong during Bush's term, partially because of Bush's tax cuts and unemployment has steadily gone down. No-Child Left Behind Act was at least honest effort in trying to improve the education and promoting bi-partisan immigration bill was not just bold thing to do but also necessary to get the issue forward. Personally speaking Bush is determined & strong leader who dares to make bold decisions against the popular opinion.
Bush is wildly unpopular, he can't push through any major reforms anymore and he's gone in 1½ years so instead of talking about how good/bad he is as President, we should be talking about the 2008 presidential candidates, about the future.

Anyway, it's hardly worth whining about now; his term is almost up.
That said, he's not a good president, but it could be a lot worse. American society is generally just too spoiled to realize how much worse things could be. He definitely could be doing a much better job, but I think a lot of the time, he gets an unfair reputation from a lot of uneducated people who just regurgitate the information they see/infer from the more rebellious icons of the media.
Not to say that I support him or his policies, though. I'd say it's tolerance, at best.
