Congrats on a great post ! While I personally have not checked the truthfulness of every item on the resume created by you for the President, you got the ones I know about right (and provided me with items for research.) It's refreshing to see another LOOK AT THE FACTS instead of just digesting what the media (try to) tell us to think. Thanks.

Do you realize that by your hatred for the President, all your responses and comments show nothing but bias and hatred? I mean I support the President in this war but I don't gloat about him and put him on a pedastool...you put him in the same rank as Hitler and Satan! What makes anything you have to say worth considering because of these biases?

You are a pretty funny guy. I found that quite amusing, especially since most of it is incorrect factually.

Clinton is to blame for most of the ills that the economy is going through, or did you forget that the economy was in its death spiral before the elections? 9/11 certainly did not help.

The jobs that were lost? Many of them were either from internet companies, which were so overvalued, that they were not going to stay in business long anyways.

Corporate corruption? This all occurred under the watchful eye of William Jefferson Clinton, but his eyes were too busy hawking out all the White House interns.

The Texas Rangers? He was a minority owner, who had no control over the day to day matters of the team, and who cares because everyone in baseball is greedy to the ultimate degree. Give me a break $25 million to play shortstop??? I didnt know that was akin to curing cancer.

<> Thank God he did. He protected the US by taking Al-Queda and Saddam Hussein on head to head, unlike Clinton who thought if he lauched a missle, that would solve the problem.

<> Congress actually spent the surpluss, which the real figure was never agreed upon (I think Arthur Andersen were the accountants for the Government) The treasury has been bankrupt or running at a defecit for eons. This is not the fault of GWB.

<> See Bill Clintons failed economic policies for this one.

<> Do you forget that he was convicted under Bill Clinton, and that Janet Reno was the one who sought the death penalty.

<> Which is the fault of Bill Clinton's administration for cutting back the budgets of the CIA, NSA and FBI by so much. Again, this goes to Clinton not liking the military, or the intelligence communities.

<> Which is a ditect result of the failing economy by his predecessor, Bill Clinton.

<> See notation above.

<> You again fail to point out that the death spiral began in Summer of 2000 under the watchful eye of Bill Clinton who did nothing to stop it. And as far as your every single economic catagory thing....last month consumer confidence was at a 25 year high..... Oooops.

<> Of course you realize that this is not true because the books were being cooked during the term of Slick Willie. Ooops.

<> Because he had the foresight to know that the oil prices would drop in the very near future, returning the gas prices to a more normal level. If you want to talk about the gas prices, let us not forget Jimmy Carter who was in office during the worst energy crisis in the history of the US. Do you recall the gas lines that were 2 or 3 miles long?

<> You fail to remember Jimmy Carter. See above. With regards to the corruption, this was a problem in California, and the administration told them to handle it. They got themselves into the mess, so it was up to them to get themselves out. Maybe now Gray Davis wont get re-elected. He is accountable.

<> This is untrue because the President does not have the power to change the Consitution, this can only be done by Congress.

<> Except for all of the other Presidents who have served this country... LBJ and the assasination of Kennedy? Kennedy and the Bay of Pigs? Reagan and Iran Contra? Clinton and the endless gates that came from his administration. (Whitewater, travelgate, etc)

<> He didnt disolve the Kyoto accord, he pulled out of it because it was not fair. Other countries were precluded from having to conform to the standards that the treaty called for. With regards to the ABM treaty? I am grateful he did this so as to protect our country and our allies from nuts like Kim Jong Il (sp?)

<> You are way off base here. What about WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Greneda, The first Gulf War?????? Oooops again.

<> Where do you get this stuff from??? The entire government is a giant bureaucracy, which in and of itself is the major problem.

<> Who cares. It is an ineffectual commission run by an ineffectual organization. You are going to tell me that a commission that includes Sudan, Lybia, Saudi Arabia, and Cuba is going to watch for Human Rights violations? Where....certainly not in their country.

<> Too bad that Enron donated almost equally to both the Democrats and the Republicans....Ooops

<> This is the standard protocol of the Secret Service, and he never reported that the enemy had the code to Air Force One, the NSA did, and it turns out they were correct.

<> I think that Israel and Palestine had a lot more to do with it than GWB and his administration. Lets not forget the debacle that Clinton made of the peace talks between Arafat and Barak.

<> Oh, I forgot....all of those thousands of artillery were not pointed at Seoul during the terms of Clinton, Bush I, Reagan, Carter, Nixon, LBJ, Kennedy, etc......And lets not forget the reason why North Korea now has nuclear capabilities....Clinton gave them to him.....Ooooops.

I could go on and on, but what is the point. You people who dont like Bush will blame him for everything from the Great Flood, to Seinfeld not staying on the air, when many of the things you blame him for are the result of others faults, and that is both a fact and the truth.

Exactly...the hatred takes over and it's so obvious...The formation of their posts and everything in between are all solely based on either the "sore loser" syndrome or hatred for BUSH in general terms or democrats being desperate....I enjoy politicalbry's posts tremendously!

They can't because they dont have any facts to go on, so it is all rhetoric and conjecture.

AWOL from National Guard and Deserted the military during a time of war.

You forgot to comment on his Military career. Unless I missed it. But I'm sure Clinton will be an excuse for Bush not showing up for duty.
