I am curious as to the way the rest of the world sees George Bush. I personally think he is an idiot and one of the worst Presidents the US has ever had. I cannot believe the rest of America was stupid enough to re elect him.

Anyway, I prefer comments from non US bases A.netters, their friends etc as to how they view President Bush.

GWB is the worst thing to happen to the US's external relations since the Boston Tea Party - I am serious about this, the man has single handedly practically destroyed almost a century of growing common purpose between Old Europe and New America, and it's going to take a LONG time to repair that.
His domestic All-Jesus All The Time agenda is not helping either.

There's a good way to get the chorus singing and reinforce your opinion of the President.....limit input to other than the US citizens who are the most affected by him, and ask what has proven to be a primarily anti-George Bush crowd (non-US Anetters) for input.

Bush is a perfect example of how lobbying and special interest groups are slowly but steadily taking over the control of the government of the US of A, to carry out their particular hidden agendas, which rarely coincide with the official statements on important issues.

Whether its about invading oil-rich Iraq over WMD's, not signing the Kyoto Treaty because there simply is no Global Warming or critisizing Iran over its nuclear plans while at the same time ignoring Pakistan's role in handing over nuclear secrets to rogue nations, there's always this pro-democracy, pro-liberty and anti-terrorism mumbo-jumbo coming from Bush which in reality has very little if anything at all to do with his policies and actions.

It's this straight out lying to the people which bothers me most about Bush and his Administration. The second thing is that most people simply take whatever Bush says as the Truth and nothing but the Truth.

My opinion on Bush? Well I don't care much for him as President of the US. Whenever I say this to a person who likes Bush, they often reply "Well I'd like to see you do better as president." To which I normally reply "At least I know I'm not fit to become president of such a superpower."

In short, I do not support Bush.

As for an answer to your original question, I'm not a fan. I love America and it's people (most of my family currently resides in the US), but how the hell did he get voted back in?!?

Another one of life's little mysteries, I guess........

I think GWB himself isn´t the problem so much as the discrepancy between the reasons why many americans support him and the actual policies and their inevitable consequences.

The biggest problem with GWB is that he sells his policies purely on emotions; Very little of the openly promoted agenda holds up to even the slightest scrutiny.

Or in short: I don´t care if GWB is a "nice guy" (or poses as one), if he and his administration are pursuing policies which are nothing short of destructive to both the USA and the world.

GWB is not bad, he is stupid.

He is basically a pawn in the hands of the big industry and christian right wing. He is stupid because he has allowed these forces to control him, take over the White House and influence his policies.

Once these right wingers and industry bosses get what they want, they are going to toss GWB out of their hands like a used napkin.

and once that happens, GWB will have no choice but to lie pathetically on the ground like a ...used napkin.

Don't get me wrong. I really think he is basically a nice guy, but in a lot of bad company.

If he wants to redeem himself, and his country, he has to learn to stand up and say "NO", to the people who are controlling him.

One perception which many share is that GWB is merely a front, and just repeating/doing what he has been told to say or do by shadowy figures who are neither visible or elected. His wooden speech style doesn't help.

Even more so than Reagan, who was the original 9 to 5 man and a master delegator.

When you consider how his style changed after being elected president that gives that theory much more credibility. His deal-making multipartisan side, from when he was Texas Governor, went out of the window and a more strident, aggressive Bush appeared.

He's a buffoon who surrounds himself with unworthy advisers. George W. was a nothing President until 9-11. Ironically, one of the worst tragedies in American history became the greatest saviour to Bush's political career. He uses fear and paranoia to sustain his presidency. That makes him no better than any extremist (religious or political) from anywhere else on the globe.

The majority of US citizens adore him, but the remainder of the world seems to despise him. I suppose the world is so, so wrong? Over these past few years, I've honestly tried to think of one redeeming quality of the man and I cannot. It's a pity he did not inherit the intelligence and savvy that Barbara has. The mother would have made a far, far better President than the son has.

JCS17- What can I say? With the shape of our great nation in free fall these past four plus years, I'm glad, I can still maintain a sense of humor. I lived through Nixon, LBJ and Vietnam, Jimmy Carter, Daddy Bush and Reagan and I can't believe I now remember their administrations with a bit of fond nostalgia. That shows you the unfortunate state of our leadership today. We, are like lemmings heading toward the polluted sea. Or, to put it more relevant to A.Net: like a bunch of old retired NW DC 9's flying off toward their eternal ground nap in the desert. Sad I wonder if you are counting the days till 2008 where, I bet you are dreaming of a Karl Rove/Condaliza Rice GOP ticket or, are you for us changing our constitution SO Arnold S.

I notice the press and many people refer to GWB being "re-elected". Let's not forget his first term was a stolen Presidency (for which Al Gore is equally to blame), and now he is acting as though he won a vast majority and has a total mandate. He is putting people with extremist views into positions of power. When 9/11 happened he squandered the goodwill and sympathy felt in many parts of the world for the U.S., and he is too stupid and arrogant to even realize that. Unfortunately I have to agree with some of the comments above that he is doing long-term damage to the U.S. Shame on him.

I disagree with some of Bush's positions, but I would vote for him if I was American. I am glad he was re-elected.

Canada's Conservative opposition party is pro-American and I am a member. We had a huge party here in downtown Toronto on the night of the election -- hundreds of Conservatives cheering on Bush as the results rolled in. Tons of American & Canadian flags festooned in the pub location. It was a great night.

Quoting Tokolosh (Reply 22):

You are incorrect. Bush won fair and square. He won a majority of the electoral college votes. His first term was absolutely legitimate.

Quoting Tokolosh (Reply 22):

Umm....he HAS won a vast majority and he DOES have a total mandate. He won over 50% of the popular vote. NO other current Western leader in power now has such a mandate. The last Western leader who won 50% of the popular vote was Brian Mulroney in Canada in 1984. Bush's mandate is firm, and he should exercise it to his absolute advantage.

GWB has certainly created a large division between left and right in the US and that is bad for the country. You cannot achieve anything without unity.

The only point I respect him on is that he seems to stick by what he says, as much as a politician can. No flip flopping like John Kerry.

Otherwise, I think he is a chimp.
