    I agree he's been a disappointment, but given the choice we had of him or either Kerry or Gore was it still a mistake? I'm afraid I'd still vote the same way given those choices again.

    ...on a side note, my conservative governor imposed a new franchise tax on businesses in my state about 2 years ago which will cost me about $3500 due by the end of this quarter

    well hopefully my point is taken by the fact that all we really have to choose from for some number of years now is the lesser of two evils. You know they're all bad choices so you try to pick the one you think will do the least amount of damage

    I know what you're sayin'....
    Either way we still have to choose evil. Not what I want my kid to have to grow up knowing and living under.

    Me too.....although I see it differently. I see a man that took over after a stock market crash

    "10th Worst Stock Market Crash: Date Started: 1/15/2000
    Date Ended: 10/9/2002

    Total Days: 999
    Starting DJIA: 11,792.98
    Ending DJIA: 7,286.27
    Total Loss: -37.8% "

    I see a man that held his own with attacks that were worse than http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attack_on_Pearl_Harbor

    To leave a economy that if researched is no where near as bad as it's made out to be.....you can think second by second 24/7/365 news for that scare.




    For the folks that forget....they still keep attacking:
    http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0001454.html



    If it wasn't for the fact that everyone hates his guts (from what I can see for the lack of the normal everyday Joe America's memory) I would have to say he has been dealt one of the toughest hands ever (next to dealing with Hitler) and not only held his ground but has still be able to keep us growing. I'd even re-vote for him....When democrat was last in office I had to claim zero just to make sure I wouldn't owe money.....Since Bush has been in office I claim one and still get back more money than I ever did back then even with being in a slightly higher tax bracket. I like my money.


    Did I mention 14,000,000 million new immigrants a year that our economy has taken on also which puts a huge burden on us of course.....but we still grew?

    Btw, he's still in the race, there is your chance to vote for a real conservative, not one of those republicans in demosheep clothing.

    GW was bought and paid for by oil money, they are finally seeing a return on their investment before his term ends. I used to work for Cheneys company and it was all too clear what was going down.

    Ah, you must have been on the board of directors then? Since you know what's going on.
