    2. I’d still support him. He won his elections based on his views. Unlike Obama who won based on his race and that by voting for him he would be making history. A real good amount of people had no clue as to what they were voting for. This whole election was a crock.

    5. @Puulaahi: I hate that he gets blamed for what stupid people do. I actully got to shake hands with Former Pesident Bush. Yeah I guess it does suck to be able to see past all the bs. Yeah it sucks to be in tough with reality and not leaving in fantasy world. Don’t get me wrong I hated both sides. This election had absolutly nothing to do with the issues at hand. But for people to sit there and think that things are going to be better for everyone everywhere thats just stupid. This country is just going to get worse and worse. So go live in your fantasy world.

    6. @Systemdown83: You shook his hand and suddenly you can see past all the bullshit. Yet you say Bush isn’t to blame for anything that happened during his presidency and Obama won because of race. Say hi to the Mad Hatter for me when you see him.

    8. Bin Laden – Clinton dropped the ball on this one. Yeah Bush didnt catch him, but Clinton had the chance to nip it in the bud over a decade ago, more than a couple of times

      Iraq – Yeah, the country was ruled by a rather cruel dictator so its nice to see Hussein go. But not planning for partisans and all the other crap….

      Rest of the World – So the fate of the world lies in the hands of the POTUS? wild.

      Torture – Ive been waterboarded, its not that bad. Mind you I knew what was going on when it happened. But there wasnt much of a professional job going on in the Abu Gahrab thing.

      Economy – The whole banking thing is a wild mix between Clinton era laws more or less mandating that banks make loans to low income people, and Bush era law that deregulated the trading of loans. Either law by itself wouldnt have lead to this, but the combination is freaking lethal.

      Enviornment – If your going to QQ about the enviornment, maybe you need to learn more. Lets assume that the planet is heating up. There is geologic and recorded history that shows that the world prosperous for all forms of life when the planet is warmer than it is now. Global warming is joke of a thing to bitch about. A third of the US lakes, and a quarter of the waterways have so much mercury in them that you cant eat the fish; this is something to get angry about. The spread of large scale farming pushing out the predators to more or less unarable land, and you get deer and other prey animal populations totally out of control, thats something to bitch about.

      I hate Bush for a number of reasons. None of which are listed in the pic.

    9. @Systemdown83: The 2008 was a crock? Are you forgetting 2004 and 2000? At least Obama didn’t use fraudulent voting machines or prevent votes from being counted by going to the Supreme Court.

      This is like shooting fish in a barrel, but I’m bored and relaxing on the couch after lunch.

      *achem*

      Bin Laden – Bill Clinton may not have destroyed Bin Laden, but he had no reason to do so, as he actually headed the FBI/CIA warnings of possible terror attacks on U.S. soil, which is well documented that Bush did not.

      Iraq – The U.S. put that ‘bad dictator’ in power, and even Cheney admitted in an early 90’s interview that invasion of the region would be disastrous because of the power vacuum left behind. This is ignoring the sky rocketing costs and lying to lead a nation into war, mind you.

      Rest of the World – I’ll partially forgive you because I’ll assume you’ve never been out of North America, but there is actually a whole world out there, and to ignore it is beyond stupid. To intentionally piss it off like Bush did is possibly insane.

      Torture – You know what? I’ve been tortured. It’s not fun. Not in the fucking slightest. Maybe you got water boarded as a frat prank or something, but if you ever actually went through what I did and consider torture okay you are a fucking moron. Fucking. Moron.

      Economy – You actually got this right. +1 point.

      Environment – During the last ice age the average temperature of the planet was 10 degrees cooler, Fahrenheit. The average over the last century has seen a rise of 2 degrees world wide. However, you said environment then attacked global warming while defending environmental regulation. It’s a straw man argument, and a bad one because while you changed the argument, you still attacked Bush for deregulating environmental protections.

      —Though I am curious. If you don’t hate him for all these reasons, at least two of which you admitted are in some way his fault (Economy & Environment), then what do you hate him for?
      .
      Hurricane Katrina?
      .
      Shipping American jobs overseas?
      .
      Massive national deficit?

    13. @Paul_Is_Drunk: Hey paul, I kinda agree with some of the points you made, but Katrina??

      I have lived in New Orleans for a year now. It’s pretty much back to the way it was, but there are so many abandoned buildings still. I never thought it was the governments responsibility to clean up. It the communitites! I remember seeing a lady in Florida handing out bottled water when I went down there to help clean up when I was still in the navy. She said this “I have lost everything, so I figured the least I can do is help out the rest of the community.” This ladies house was somewhere in the gulf of mexico, yet instead of blasting the government she actually helped the national guard hand supplies out. There were a lot of people there doing the same thing. I know a lot of people who come to MCS know about Houma and what happened during Gustav and Ike. Some of these places were under water not once but twice in the matter of a month. Galveston is still fucked up but you don’t see that shit on the news still. There was even a story told to me by locals that the governor refused help from the fedral government. Calling Katrina Bush’s fault is not very fair to anyone, especially the armed forces, and civilian piolots who were getting shot at by the same people they were trying to rescue off of roof tops who DID NOT head the warning a hurricane was coming.

      TL:DR: Natural disasters are not one persons problem to fix they are everyones problem to come to a solution.

    14. Bush did a hell of a lot better than any of you could ever have done, and Obama will do the same, if to a higher (probably) degree. I personally voted for Bush, but did not vote for Obama (but not in the same election, just had to clarify so some of you fucktards won’t be saying ‘haha, you voted for Bush even when he wasn’t a valid presidential candidate’). But guess what; I’m a fucking American and I have a president. Just because I didn’t vote him in doesn’t mean that he’s not the president and doesn’t deserve my respect. Hindsight has 20/20 vision. People looking into the future do not have the luxury of knowing in such perfect detail everything about the future the way that you know absolutely everything there is to know about the past.

Assuming that we actually were educated in a fashion that would prepare us for a powerful leading role then Im going to say 90% of us could have done better then Bush.

    17. @Drunkin: Regardless of personal opinions of Hurricane Katrina, it’s aftermath, or the attitudes of the citizens that chose to live there…

      The ISSUE is his response to the situation, which was just as delayed and haphazard as his reaction to 9/11. It was a turning point in his administration, and one he never recovered from.

      So, no, I haven’t been to New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina, but I’m not judging Bush on what’s happened since then. I, like many Americans, are still judging him from how badly he handled the situation.

      @LordPartyTime:

      What scares me is that Bush is a highly educated man with lots of political/family connections and he still majorly screwed up once the post 9/11 glow abated. Can you imagine Sarah Palin in there if (IF, you bastards) McCain croaked?

      If a Yale-educated man did that much damage, then a multiple college barely gettin’r done in 6 years diploma holder would be the Apocalypse those crazy fundamentals are always praying for.

    18. @Drunkin: No one is blaming Bush for Katrina. It’s the way his administration dealt w/ all bad news.
      1. Ignore it for a while
      2. Oh you mean something bad has happened?
      3. Not our job
      4. Look at us, see how helpful we are!
      5. Throwing money w/out thought didn’t help?
      6. Fuck you
      7. We tried
      8. Success!

      It may not be the feds job to get people out of trouble, but it is FEMA’s job. It perhaps wouldn’t be so bad if he wouldn’t have tried to take credit for everything good, but zero of the bad.
      One big difference between Katrina and New Orleans was how many people it involved. Galveston residents (most of them) left before the hurricane made landfall, mostly because of Katrina/New Orleans. So many people couldn’t leave New Orleans. In larger cities there’s always a significant proportion of citizens that don’t own a vehicle. They get around on mass transit. Where were they going to go? How were they going to get there? We ask these questions now, but they didn’t then. Also if you remember, FEMA’s head honcho (Brown) did in fact tell Bush this was going to be a huge disaster if they levees didn’t hold. Info that was ignored nearly 100% til 3 days after the broke. Many many NO residents helped bring their city back…for weeks months and now years. It’s amazing how quickly people forget what doesn’t fit the memories of what happened. To say the the residents of NO did nothing while screaming for aid is ridiculous and wrong.
      What disastrous events did Bush handle well, appropriately and w/out lying about its particulars?

Anyway the whole Iraq thing could been avoided if Clinton did his job right with Desert Storm in what ’92/’93 or if the UN had a backbone and did more then talk about the problem. The economy, part of the blame goes to people living way beyond their means and the CEO’s who gut their companies for personal gain. The whole thing is that this country is getting further and further away from the founding principles that made this a great country. What’s the saying “doing whats right is never easy’. But to bad people nowadays only want to take the easy way. Sad really.

      Afghanistan: See Bin Laden entry. Also, the demise of opium trade under Bin and the collapse of the local economy and jeopardizing the WAR on drugs.

      Rest of the world: When one has pet names for leaders of other nations, well…

    44. @Record Store Tough Guy: I hear Grover Cleveland for some reason.

      However, James Buchanan takes the cake. He thought that the secession of the southern states was illegal, but he also thought stopping it was illegal. He basically almost caused the country to split into two, because of his strong opinion.

      He also had a major financial problem during his term and once claimed “history will vindicate my memory.” Now… what other President claimed that?

      Then he was subsequently replaced by a charismatic lawman from Illinois who helped repair a divided nation. (I’m not saying I’m buying the hype, I’m just saying the similarity is creepy).

      Warren G. Harding gets picked on a lot for being bad as well, but aside from the Teapot Dome scandal (spelling/name?) he was a much better President that George W. Bush.

    45. What really annoys me is how stupid our politicians have become. Congress doesn’t seem to know what their constitutional job is. My impression is that it’s been a republican problem more than a democratic problem, but I may be totally wrong on that. I may only think it because they’ve been in power for a long time and it’s them we hear from more often. It’s one of the problems of having an uninformed populace; you end up w/ uninformed politicians. Also, it pisses me off that the right wing pundits are now completely reversing their positions on executive power and privilege. Bush and Cheney should have all the power they wanted but Obama can’t be trusted w/ it?

    48. @nyokki: JFK used to say that Buchanan was worst, until JFK spent some time in the Oval Office. After that, he said he refused to pass judgment. He said that no one else can ever know what it’s like to be behind that desk, to have the view of the field the president has, not even other presidents. He decided that it was impossible to judge.

      I doubt he meant that universally, though. If a president rounded up people and exterminated them a la the Holocaust, it’s probably a safe bet to judge them for it. But JFK was unwilling to condemn Buchanan for the Civil War, and I find that meaningful.
