Liar to the Nations!
Laura too since she off'd her boyfriend with her car Christine.
I am constantly amazed at how much the "talking heads" influence people's opinions. It's as if they lack any incentive to really delve into what this whole Mideast situation means to the world. As for those who sleep safely at night, who travel without fear of exploding in midair, thisnation has not had another terrorist attack since that horrific day in September 2001. Bin Laden no longer wields the power he once had - the Muslim world is turning against the fanatics in its midst, and contrary to all Obama reports Iraq is steadily improving. History will vindicate George Bush.

Perhaps Mrs. Bush has confused vengeance and vindication.

God, are these people going to vote - they hate people but can't even spell their names. They must get all their information from "talking heads" because it is obvious if they could read they might have more intelligent remarks to offer.
This is what put Bush in office.

How do you know what kind of power Bin Laden wields? Do you know him personally or did you get your opinion from a "talking head"?
How do you know the situation in Iraq is improving? Have you been there recently or did you get your opinion from a "talking head".
How do you know what the muslim world thinks? Are you a muslim? Are you a middle east political expert or did you get your opinion from a "talking head"?
It amazes me how totally full of siht some people are.
Actually, it's election season and the NY Post says it.

No way will history vindicate a Bush. The battles aren't even over with - we still have American soldiers getting killed on a daily basis. And the "shoot to kill" "bring 'em on" president hasn't found his brain yet.

Things usually look different when viewed from an historical perspective. For instance, Harry Truman was so unpopular that he couldn't wait to leave office, because of the public bashing he took over the Korean War and other foreign and domestic issues. Now his Presidency, when viewed through the perspective of history, is rated fairly highly.

Then there's Bill Clinton, who was fairly popular while in office, but whom many historians now rate as less than sterling after reevaluating his Presidency, and analyzing the effect of his policies on the current situation we are facing as a nation.

George W. Bush is also unpopular now, but who knows what people will think of him in 10 or 20 years? A lot will depend on what happens in the future, and how much it will be influenced by the events of the past 8 years.

In other words, it's too early to tell, and the First Lady may well prove to be right. We'll just have to wait for the verdict of history, although judging from some of the comments posted here, some people have already made up their minds.

My fellow Americans,
I just figured out who I am. I am like Robin Hood, except I take from the poor and give to the rich. I do all this while I liberate other countries, and look for Bin Laden and weapons of mass destruction!

When Bush finally leaves the White House, he should go immediately to Iraq where he can work at the U.S. Embassy - and he should not be allowed to return to the States until the last soldier has come home.

Actually, the terrorists started it.

Regardless, maybe you should go work in an embassy. It will give you much needed exposure to the REAL world we live in.
