George Bush will always have his critics but there are also a large number of people out there that liked him and believe that he gave it a good shot. He might not have got it right all the time but he did what he had to.

People might call him dumb, uneducated etc., but that is a sign of ignorance on their part. Why would the Republican Party have chosen a 'fool' as their candidate? Why would millions of Americans have voted for the same 'dimwit' twice? Now, most want to blame the recession on his Presidency; hardly the logical criticism put forward by clever people.

What does the new found rhetoric of "time for change" mean? We will all probably look back in a few years time and realise that it was all a hollow promise.

Nice to see you posting, LION :)
I can't imagine anything more crass than, "yes, we can".
I also feel uncomfortable with mass adulation as that leads to mindless followers instead of objectivity.
Obamania appears to rule for now, but it won't be long before someone says no to him - and that would be healthy.

He did not give best shot....he missed...

He did not sort out the Iraqi mess......he failed....

He did not resolve the Afghanistan issue....he failed....

He has created more terrorists by his actions in last four years then the fourty years before......

He went on an illegal war - without UN mandate....same mandate for which he blamed Saddam for not following......he sidelined US from rest of the world....

You need to read a little bit more and really see into his tenure and going ons....it will be an eye opener.....

I think instead of "he" you should insert "we" As far as I'm aware the UK is/was involved in both the Iraq and Afghanistan operations. We also launched an illegal war without a UN Mandate and probably created more terrorists in the last four years than the last forty.

You can bleat Bush this, America that. But who's the bigger fool ?? The man who runs in front of a bus or the fool that follows him.

Ironically you probably voted Labour and got this lot in to power.

We're a much softer target than the US for terror attacks. Hence, look how many botch jobs, last minute swoops and actual attacks we've had compared to the USA. I think the first and last was 9/11.

...No I did mean HE and not WE......

I would have used this if WE had any ability to dictate the outcome of the actions...

WE just follow like lame duck what HE wants.....

So it was meant HE...

Talking about bleat.....perhaps I should call yours a 'rant'?

You haven't got a clue as to who I voted for....Assumtions about evrything and everyone are dangerous.....

Do I also detect a wee bit of 'patronising'..?

A true friend would've talked Bush out of it.
Trouble is nobody has yet worked out which language the sonofabit*ch speaks.

Makes communication rather difficult.

Most people haven't a clue what's going on and nor do they care!

Smug arrogance and conceit. Apathy and ignorance is bliss. I'm alright Jack you mind your own back.

Consequences will reverberate for good many decades.

How long did it take for Vietnam to be forgotten, if it ever is?

Vietnam caused Nixon to break the gold standard v dollar link.

Imho Iraq will have broken the dollar standard as people will realise in another 30-40 years.
