Bush was wrong for invading Iraq, killing millions of people, devastating our economy, and trampling the Constitution. He should be arrested and tried and hanged. More people died under Bush than under Hussein.

I strongly disagree. He should have a fair trial. Then we hang him.

The liberation of Iraq was justified, but I would not say the same thing for all the aspects of how the war has been fought.

I remember how Americans were after 9-11. They were looking for a father figure to make the bad people pay and to keep our country safe. It did not matter if Bush had mounted the ruins of ground zero and had connected the 'Axis of Evil' dots to Disney World, people were out for blind justice.

Bush is nothing more than a puppet of the international bankers. Like the scumbag before him and the one after him. A pogrom is what is needed - a rather large one.

The liberation of Iraq de-liberated Amerika. The troops are still over there fighting for the right of our govt to protect the sensitivites of Amerikanos who hate the Constitution.

Janet Napolitano says the typical Illegal crossing the Mexican/American border is not a threat while the American born, caucasian, gun-owning, Constitutionalist, is.

Millions of Liberals voted for Bush rather than Kerry to keep them safe from Terrorists.

"We gottem on their last throes." Dick Cheney, 2003

"If you don't vote for us, we'll get hit again." Dick Cheney, 2003

Our govt worked long and hard to antagonize Arab patriots to attack Amerika (in Amerika) so that 'our govt' could expand the war on Terror. Adolf Hitler did it too. He had the SS burn the Reichstag, and he had them wear Poland military uniforms and pretend to attack Germany at the Poland border.

This place is a ruin like it was ten years ago. Oil ruined this
stinking place. I was there 35 years ago and again 5 years ago.
It still stinks like old piss and diesel smoke then and now.

These stone-age fanatics need to be left alone in their mess.

The cradle of civilization, my sore asss.

Get the US out. Stay out. We didn't fight for oil. We got no oil.
Even they don't know what to do with it. They want bombs and bullets
and women dressed like ghosts.

Here's my report: George W. Bush was a mediocre president, at best. He wasted billions and billions of taxpayers' money for corporate welfare and to try to build a new Repuvblican majority. He refused to secure the United states' borders because it was not "culturally appropriate." His foreign policy was not even-handed. He bent over for the Saudis (figuratively, not literally like his successor). His energy policy was incoherent.
Despite all this he did make a few good decisions. One of those was the invasaion of Iraq.

If I were to receive this for grading I would have to flunk you. It is all conclusions, none of which are supported with evidence of any kind. It doesn't really matter if the think George (the shrub) Bush was a good or bad president, but we would be interested to know what he did or what some said about him that makes you come to that conclusion as well as some logical reason why I should agree with you.

You're the one to critque! I don't claim to have written a scholarly posting, but I gave more evidence than you did. Your "logical" posting was as follows: "I strongly disagree. He should have a fair trial. Then we hang him."
I'm a teacher and you seem to have prejudged Bush. If you want to have a more specific discussion about his strengths and faults, that's fine, but your postings -- as well as your resorting to group think ("we would be interested" -- who is "we"? You and your tapeworms?)

Where to begin?

I don't believe you are a teacher. Just a guess. If you were you probably wouldn't have written, "you seem to have prejudged Bush." This is foolish because George (the shrub) Bush took office some years ago and since has lied to the people, the UN, and the congress, not to mention the people of Iraq and Afghanistan. It is far far too late to prejudge him. Since he now in a rather quiet retirement I couldn't possibly prejudge him. Perhaps it is time a post judgment. That would be something like, "He was a fraud, a hypocrite, a liar, a war monger (in the correct meaning of the term), a drunk, a coward, a lousy businessman, and an incompetent baseball owner." I'm sure more could be brought up were there space, but this is not prejudging, it is looking at the facts after it's all over. To say, as some half witted local pol did the other day that Obama is the worst president in history is to prejudge, simply because Obama isn't finished yet.

You quotation, "I strongly disagree. He should have a fair trial. Then we hang him," was a joke. A small witticism. A traditional American bit of humor.

Who is "we?" It refers to myself and everyone who agrees with me. What's the problem? I don not now and never have had a tapeworm and your remark is in poor taste and reflects badly on you mother, who should have taught you better manners.

You gave no evidence at all, simply made categorical assertions and presented no support for those assertions.

I see no point in a two way discussion about the strengths and weaknesses of George (the shrub) Bush because that would be rather one sided and therefore dull. If you can think of a strength, however, please feel free to post it.

Our govt deliberately causes all the trouble. When it wages war (allegedly for our freedom) it takes away our liberty, prosperity and privacy (in order to win the war, says the govt).

Govt is our worst enemy. Make govt your servant, not your master.

America's sheep are quiet while it's wolves are running our govt. Ten percent run the country.

During the turn of the last century ten percent told the remaining ninety percent that Blacks were nothing but animals. Everyone either listened to them or kept quiet.

Here's the benchmark:

Respect the Constitution, the Bill of Rights (not people's sensitivites), and respect the concept of limited govt. A limited govt cannot meddle in the affairs of other countries or support all the bigots.

Make the States balance the Feds and vice versa. What happened with States' Rights ? Why did Lincoln wage war with the South ?

Prejudgment is done as precedent to reasoned consideration of the evidence. It isn't a chronological reference. One could prejudge Abraham Lincoln if one were so inclined.

When I joke about your use of the plural, you make a comment about my mother and cry about bad taste. Yet you allow yourself to joke about hanging a man. What hypocrisy.
