I'm sorry, it's just i've once too many been basically told to butt out as i'm not an american, or that criticism of the goverment automatically means disaproval of all americans therefore I must be evil, yadda yadda. .....i figured i'd save myself the hassle and check first.


AKaras, oh creator of the poll, what says you?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I made this poll for ALL the members of this board.  If for some reason some thought this poll is for Americans only, that isn't so.  All are welcome.  :)  I've also tried to be fair in the choices despite my own opinions of him.  I tried to create a fair poll here based on what I have heard and read.  I'm not here to make enemies, or anything like that.  I just wanted to create a fair poll.  If anyone thinks it isn't, I am sorry.  That would then be my own lack of competence to blame.

This is exactly what I had in mind.  Thanks.  Hope you don't mind me putting that up to my first post?  

As for the "All of the above" choice...I never liked that option.  Less thinking involved with that answer.

Hey if you really wanted to be negative there could have been the choice of

"Do you think he's a puppet President"

Because that's what he is.

Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and the ol' man are actually the guys runnin' the show.

This is why he can take so many vacations.

But I went with the idiot-because that's the closest you had to it. :whistle:

Those who support Bush are not going to like any poll in regards to him at the moment because yes-the truth is coming out and people are waking up.

The Republicans had better wake up to this.

And I mean this in all sincerity.  I want the Republicans to wake up because they are the ones in charge.  Our country is fast becoming a country that is in dire trouble and it hurts me.

I voted “This guy is a freakin' genius.” Just to break up the lefty love in taking place in this thread. Lets face it if the guy can take America to war based on nothing with plenty of support then he’s a damn good leader. Perhaps its his effectiveness that annoys lefty’s so much.

Blech :barf: Hugs are revolting. We all know that hugs lead to touching and touching leads to inappropriate touching and that inappropriate touching leads to drugs and teen pregnancies which destroys the moral fabric of society.

wait.. I heard the latest scheme.. I mean government assistance plan....

It's called "No Cows Left Behind", co-sponsored by Pres. Bush and Sen. Kennedy.
Bet it'll cost us taxpayers moocho bucks....

:)

PS:  I'm kinda sick at most of our government right now (and not for relief efforts)... but most espcecially Congress for wasting opportunity after opportunity.   I'm upset with Bush for a lot also, even though I still think his conclusions were right leading up to his foreign policy decisions.....  It's some of the planning and thought leading up to the conclusions I have a problem with, but that's more existing Administration and Government thinking errors than actual President Bush making huge mistakes....  But I did think we would get more of a Statesman than a Politician.  Unfortunately, Bush, in the 2nd term is turning out to be more of the latter than the former....

You know, I was planning on just voting and otherwise ignorning this whole thread, I hate partisan bickering from either side (I voted for "He's made a lot of mistakes" if anyone feels the need to keep track), but now that there is hugging involved.... :D :hehe:

{{{{{{{{{nonny&eska&anyone else who wants a hug}}}}}}}}}}}

So anyone going to take me up on a offer of a hug? Left or right or middle, doesn't matter to me :hehe:
