Tie,not sure why you directed this thread at me? I've always said bush spends money like a liberal democrat.
Oh, the burden of fame.
J.F.K. was far more conservative than G.W.
I just wish I could say the same about his brother.
I'll probably end up remembering GW for being a better choice then Kerry or Gore.
Last time I checked he's still meandering and recruiting around the Afgh/Paki Mtns.
By checking with nat'l intelligence reports released to the public.......But you know the inteligence could be 3-4 yrs old like the recent release of intel that Iran ceased their nuclear weapons program in 2003. Yes, Iran is still enriching their uranium (supposedly for nuclear energy)...But I agree, the world doesn't need them to obtain a nuclear bomb, but why does this Adminstration hold back that kind of intel then lie to the American Public that these intel reports are new to them. And create a false sense of urgency that Iran is real close to bldg a bomb and WWIII is near and we should take them out. Isn't this how we got into Iraq with false intel to begin with.
You have access to national intellingence reports? They really should keep a tighter lid on those things.
I will take some heat for this but oh well. I think history will be far kinder to Bush.
Sarcasm?....Whatever, here's jsut a few links out of hundreds that mention intel reports.
We may not have up to the minute intel, and of course there's intel that won't be released, however the obvious intel does eventually gets released .
I will take some heat for this but oh well. I think history will be far kinder to Bush. I think Bush could have been remembered as one of the greatest maybe top ten. However that opportunity I believe slipped away.
I think he will be remembered for leading the country out of the ashes in the aftermath of 9-11. The attacks were devastating, not just from the loss of life incurred on American soil, but those attacks nearly wiped out the economy. We could just as easily be in a depression right now if the wrong moves were made. I think for at least a month or two, everyone in the Congress had a genuine fear for their lives and way of life if more devastating attacks followed 9-11. For the first time in a long time, both sides did what was best for the country. As time went on and more attacks didn't follow they fell back into their old partisan ways and politicized the war. They are all back to business as usual in their pursuits of power.
He will also be remebered for his impact on the Supreme Court. It is very likely that if the right abortion case comes before the court Roe Vs Wade will be overturned. I think a majority of the country will look favorably on this.
Iraq will make the difference between a great President and being a notch or two better than a mediocre President. Only time will tell. If Iraq tanks, so will Bush's legacy, and this is the most likely scenario. If things end up working out, and the freedom spreads into the Middle East he will be a top tier President (Iraq may succeed but I don't think it will spread). Only time will tell.
As far as Bush being a conservative, if you lined up everybody running for President from most conservative to most liberal, Bush would be standing between Guiliani (the least conservative Republican) and Joe Biden (or whoever you think the least liberal Democrat is).
Hmm no intel reports in there. Of course you probably think that intel reports are posted on the internet. My offer is off the table you have no sources.
I read this article and came to almost the exact opposite conclusion that you did.........
We know for fact that Pakistan has nukes and yet we sit by and allow it to become a breeding ground for the same extremist that masterminded the 9/11 attacks.
