My opinion of Bush can be expressed in a single joke:
Bush believes in a two party system......One on Friday and one on Saturday.
I will attest as a native Dallasite that Dubya did not do anything to improve this state. He did not follow through with his promises to improve public education.
AerLingus, We're Nuts, and Fanoftristars:
I completely agree with all of your statements.
Bush Supporters, did you notice that only during his term as governor did Houston replace LA as the smoggiest city? Did it occurr to you that the man is as slick and as dumb as the crude oil that is the base of his money? Because of Bush, we will destroy one of the last pristine ecosystems in the Northern Hemisphere because of his desire for oil. Oil?!?! If it wasn't for the selling out of Government officials, oil and petroleum would be obsolete by now. By now, Solar power and other alternative fueling methods would have replaced fossil fuels. If you do not believe me, read any of the recent editions of Popular Mechanics and/or Popular Science.
Even worse was his attitude when he gave his speech, which, in layman's terms, can be summed up to mean "I am the president, you (gore) aren't. So shut the hell up and sit your arse down."
Gore will contest the vote. The key statement of his speech was "discounting votes is not the way a democracy works". He has every right to contest the vote. By not allowing the results from West Palm Beach county to count, (they were 78 minutes late), Katherine Harris (43?!?!, Yeah right, I have seen a dog look better in makeup) took the most basic right guaranteed in the constitution, the right to vote, from the people of West Palm Beach county.
Now, you Bush supporters and Republicans claim to be patriotic. How could taking away the guaranteed right of the people be truly American? If anything this is clearly unAmerican.
However, looking on the bright side, with Bush, we will have better relations with Colombia.
