Gary Trudeau of Doonesbury fame welcomes a second Bush term. Says it's almost God-given to comedians and cartoonists.

 

Sometimes humor is the only valid response to a grave situation.

I guess you are all just content with the status quo up to this point? Why don't you post this on the 9/11 survivors webboard or socnet and see how much sympathy you all get. Pansies.

"We have met the enemy and he is us."

--Walt Kelly, creater of Pogo comic strip

 

Seems Bush's two pronged approach to leadership primarily involves the contradictory actions of cutting taxes and increasing spending possibly leading to bankruptcy.

 

Take a look also at Bush's stance on nuclear proliferation:

 

''The administration's hypocrisy on the nuclear initiative is breathtaking. Bush called for the nations of the world to work together and enact more stringent controls on the transfer of nuclear technology and material. His chosen vehicle would be the International Atomic Energy Agency.''

 

''Soon after Bush took office, he also acted to undercut the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) -- the very treaty he said Wednesday should be strengthened. When the NPT was extended several years ago, the bargain struck was that nonnuclear nations would agree to the extension if nuclear states would sign on to the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty. Bush announced that the United States wouldn't be ratifying the treaty. Instead it would be developing, and testing, a new line of mininukes, thus thumbing its nose at the world's efforts to wind down the Cold War nuclear race....Then there's Pakistan...''

That's why it's all about Sharpton in 04.

 

I think I have seen better lists elsewhere though. Some of the stuff on this one is just a tad limp.

 

-Presided over the most prolonged shortage of soft-serve ice-cream of any president in history.

 

-During my term, ChemLawn lawncare services failed to rejuvenate more moss-laden, weed-infested lawns than at any time in history.

 

- I am the first sitting president who failed to honor National Pipe Fitter's Appreciation Day with a State Ceremony.

 

-etc, etc, etc, etc.....

Please... rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif FDR did more to bloat the Federal government and stand the Constitution on its head than any other President in the 20th Century. Not to mention not saving the Jews when he had the chance. rolleyes.gif All you liberal crybabies and handwringers are pathetic. You make me want to fucking puke.

Indeed. Correlation does not mean causation. I think it's absurd to blame everything bad on Bush as if he and his administration were the sole cause of the bad effects, e.g., on the economy. I do have to ask though if his administration has made things worse or better.

 

I generally support a strong defensive and offensive military capability but wonder if we might become a victim of overspending through these military ventures. Seems a paradox. How do we ensure global and domestic stability to reinforce our interests yet limit government spending to assure solvency of our financial situation? It's not just terrorists and terrorism that is threatening us today.

 

Also, the character issue. I just simply believe that Bush is full of it when he takes his 'holier than thou' attitude. As if being a born again Christian gives him a more astute understanding of the solutions to society's problems. Yeah, right. Faith-based solutions to society's problems rooted primarily in Old Testament dogma. As far as social experiments, I don't recall when faith-based solutions were proposed last, so maybe it's worth a shot. However, it sure seems close to officially endorsing a favored religion. The idea of a theocracy is downright frightening considering the hysteria that can result from that combination and concentration of power--the union of religion and state presided over by the greatly expanded power of the Presidential office.

 

I don't know maybe things aren't that bad. But I think that your condition colors your perception of the world. If you're prospering under the Bush years, then I'd imagine you generally support his administration and the changes they have imposed. But consider that there are a large number of us who are not benefiting from his administration.
