Are you just stupid?

George Bush's legacy
The frat boy ships out
Few people will mourn the departure of the 43rd president
HE LEAVES the White House as one of the least popular and most divisive presidents in American history. At home, his approval rating has been stuck in the 20s for months; abroad, George Bush has presided over the most catastrophic collapse in America's reputation since the second world war. The American economy is in deep recession, brought on by a crisis that forced Mr Bush to preside over huge and unpopular bail-outs.
America is embroiled in two wars, one of which Mr Bush launched against the tide of world opinion. The Bush family name, once among the most illustrious in American political life, is now so tainted that Jeb, George's younger brother, recently decided not to run for the Senate from Florida. A Bush relative describes family gatherings as “funeral wakes”.

run George, run!
That article was written in 2009.

A Huffington Post article published just last week, April 23, 2013, had a different story.

"As George W. Bush re-enters the public eye for the dedication of his presidential library, his job rating is the highest it's been since 2005, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll released Tuesday.

"Forty-seven percent of Americans now approve of Bush's presidency, while 50 percent disapprove -- a marked improvement from when he left office with just a third of Americans approving of his performance."

Quit living in the past. What's his popularity today?
so in becoming more popular in polls we can just wipe his mistakes from history?

a FOXbot fantasy that will go unfulfilled by all of the 'liberal' political history professors that teach at non-religious-conservative-nut job universities.

Aunt Bettie Lou, "Something is missing - from community organizer for three years after not finding a job for six months to Harvard Law School." Anyone can get into Harvard--look at George W. Bush:his daddy pulled strings to get him flunked out of the Texas Air National Guard without reprimand and getting his service record expunged(luckily for him, Bush W. got out of his military commitments to a well-known draft-dodger's haven(Texas Air National Guard)at the same time Johnson/Nixon ended the military draft to scoot safely into Harvard. You better believe Prez G. H. W. Bush(Dubya's daddy) had plenty of political clout left to pull the feat off.

Did not president nobama say his administration would be the most transparent ever? Why will the president not unseal his records if that is the case? Does he have something to hide?

i realize you're a designated FOXbot fake history propagandist and that we should 'listen' to what you have to 'say' without 'question', but a poll won't change the fact that G.W. really sucked.

We know she hates blacks.
We know she was too dumb to register on topix.
Actually, it was a snafu with my email address and having used it once before and not wanting to download what turned out to be necessary in order to complete the process.

After getting a new email address and downloading what was necessary, it was a cinch.

Now, about the other comments you made.

I love blacks who don't hate me or republicans for the sins of the past perpetrated by their own party and hate us just because they like free stuff.

The others I have reservations about. They are too easily duped.

Also, I love bargains. Actually, I LIVE for bargains. I NEVER go into furniture stores and pay three times as much for somethng I could get in a thrift or discount store that looks brand new and usually is much more interesting.

It's called being frugal and fiscally conservative.

I know, those words are alien to you. You're a liberal.

Aunt Bettie Lou, 'But we should celebrate because unemployment dropped a notch from 7.6% to 7.5%.' I'm sure that you are aware that a very large majority of Americans believe Obama is on the right track on finding ways to increase jobs in the economy and republicans fail by blocking those jobs creation efforts and whining about the deficit without cutting anything from their special interests ; more subsidies , tax breaks, and less regulation to poorly performing Big Business and no tax reform or tax increases for the wealthiest, most powerful Americans.

In his book, "Dreams From My Father," Obama indicated he hadn't always been an academic star. Even academic stars don't get into Harvard.
In a Columbia Newsletter's article about Obama's life: "Obama wrote letters to community organizations all around the country asking for a job but received no positive responses for six months until landing a job with a nonprofit in Chicago where he worked in low-income neighborhoods for 3 years."
From there, the timeline went straight to: "In his late 20s, Obama attended Harvard Law School where he received national publicity when he became the first African-American president of Harvard Law Review."
Something is missing - from community organizer for three years after not finding a job for six months to Harvard Law School.
One would naturally think that if he had the grades at Columbia, he wouldn't have had any trouble finding a job. Yet he got into Harvard.
Doesn't the missing piece in this timeline puzzle you too?
He said he was not an academic star in high school. Spent too much time plying basketball & having a good time.

If you actually read hos book, you would learn that he buckled down at Occidental. There he earned the grades to transfer to Columbia where e earned the credentials to get into Harvard Law.

It was after Columbia that Obama looked for a job of community organizer. Not just any job.

After Law School he had plenty of offers from big name law firms but went with a civil rights oriented firm instead.

I realize that the idea of helping people is way beyond the thinking of you right whiners depite your claims to be Christian.

As far as loving blacks...I love every single one of these black republicans.

Some of you might find this website interesting. The National Black Republican Association.

They cover all bases - from the "Dixiecrats" to the New Deal - from an extremely rational, factual and personal perspective.

I can't wait until more blacks return to the party of their roots. Wouldn't be surprised if there was an influx after this second term.

So, whether the planet gets warmer or cooler, the reason is the use of fossil fuels?
Remember, you fools have based all of your conclusions on a negligible increase in average temperatures over the last 100 years, essentially a millisecond in the history of the planet.
Only a fool would think we can continue to increase the amount of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and not change our climate.

But you talk like you're still in WVA. After all, you claim to have been in Kinder Morgan's storage terminal there, didn't you??
Don't you use 'gauley bridge wv' in your avatar??
Of course you do. You pretend to be in WVA every day.

There are some big differences between you and "Flack";
#1 - "Flack" has a brain and thinks for himself
#2 - "Flack" has a life, he is not glued to his computer
#3 - "Flack" provides for himself and his family, unlike you, one who has his hand out
#4 - "Flack" speaks the truth, while you specialize in spreading lies and BS
#5 - "Flack" does not smear and demean others, slurring and demeaning describes your posts to a T
#6 - "Flack" respects women, while you revel in attacking them, name calling etc.
#7 - "Flack" is a man, while you are a boy, a sorry piece of crap
#8 - "Flack" enjoys life, while you wallow in the muck and whine

You were married at an early age to your high school sweetheart and subesequently dumoped by her after 10 long years and raising 2 beautiful daughters of which you now share joint custody. You always had a penchant for science as long as it didn't disagree with your rightwing slanted political views. You had a mild flirtation with voting for Perot but eventually settled on Dole. You frequent Jerry's Bar and Grille, love the outdooors and your John Deere Tractor which you use to mow your lawn as often as you can. Parents names are Howard and Estelle. You also have an estranged brother named George.
Not even close.
