So don't participate, G. Go to a Love-Bush thread instead. They're all around you. I don't whine about those, don't whine about this one. Comprende? Geez, louise!
You mean this is not your whine? You mean in all the other threads we have had that are just Bush Bashing you were not whining? Damm I guess whining and discussion are the same tone of voice.
Odd we get told to be part of the community and when I do it I get you wanting to whine about me pointing out that the poll is not fair.
So please stop calling it a poll and just call it what it is a Bush bashing thread and we can leave it to that. But never tell us that this forum being about the free exchange of ideas. Because it sure is hell isn't one with this sort of attitude.
It's getting to the point that no one can defend your right to speak.
The thread is negative, what do you expect, for them to suddenly start a Bush love thread? See you when your ban is over.
I'm the one "Made Soime Mistakes". The bad part to that is when the President and his staff make mistakes, lots of people die.
You guys just don't get it, do you??? I never made this a "Bush Bashing" thread, nor was it meant to be a "Bush Love" thread! I made this for BOTH sides to vote and speak their minds. So far, only those against Bush have done so in a mature manner, while those who support the President just sit back and whine. This isn't a debate. This isn't a "Let's fight" thread! This was meant for both views to be heard. Simple as that. If you can't handle that, then fine. I am not a baby sitter, nor will I beg or try to explain my intentions any further. I thought I made it clear, as did some others who posted here. I even tried to make it MORE clear later on. And yet, there's still the damn whining. All those who don't approve the President has given truly logical and factual reasons why. They don't go "Bush Bashing" because they think it fun. They are simply stating what bothers them about him. And they have good reason to. I have heard nothing credible on his behalf. NOTHING. Could it be that simply a lemon is a lemon? Our deficit is skyrocketing, people are homeless and jobless, the economy has never recovered since his firtst election, the war in Iraq seems without end, nations are not happy with him, entire states are in ruins crying for help, gas prices are rising, social security may as well not exist, nothing has been done for the american people. He has brought nothing but frustration, sorry, and damage to this country. And people looked up to him. He let them down too, along with everyone else. Did we get Bin Ladin yet? How is the war for oil-I mean terror/freedom going? Our resources are over-extended. So tell me. Tell me how this is Bush bashing when most of these can be proven on paper? This is fact. I've been unemployed for nearly two years. I have to be in business for myself since no one will hire me. I spent my own money to get a real estate license, working seven days a week all because the economy here in the Bay Area has never recovered from the dot.com crash. Engineers are working at car dealerships, Targets and Wal-Marts because they can't find work in their own profession. There is reason for the frustrations. There are many reasons. Look at the Kitrina catastrophe. The man only wants photo ops. He really doen't care. If he did, he would have cut his vacation short and dealt with the matter. He's the leader of this nation. Lead us to salvation, not deterioration! His administration turned down a 14 Billion Dollar proposal for new levy construction and reinforcement years before Kitrina's wrath because it was "too expensive" of a project. Yet, there's enough money in funding a war that costs $5 Billion a MONTH? Now, we have over $130 BILLION in damage after Kitrina alone. That's NOT including Rita's stroll through Texas and LA. One woman wants just five more minutes of Bush's "busy schedule" to tell her why her son died in Iraq. He won't give this woman even that. Shame on that. Shame. So what if he's spoken with her once. She's a broken soul. She may not go about it the right way, but Bush could have avoided all this by just talking to her one more time.
I have tried to be open and fair, putting my own personal views of Bush aside so there could be a chance for a mature voice of opinion here. Only one side has really succeeded in doing so. Just because those people share the same views I do does not make it just another Bush Bashing thread.
Voting in defense of Bush just to fight the trend is just messed up. Vote how you feel about him. If it's not there, then I'm sorry. MY bad. I can't predict every answer everyone desires. I tried, okay. There is always the opportunity to post you views. I don't know what else to say. This has just **ssed me off.
You guys are really smart. I expect better than just whining.
