what about perot or nader? didn't one of them run as IND or something?I think he's had his struggles, but I firmly believe he's done a much better job than any alternatives. Can you imagine what Gore or Kerry would've done to this country?
I could not have said it better. It's very easy for John Q Public to point the finger but never in US history has a president had to deal with the garbage that Bush has. I'm by no means saying that I agree with his decisions across the board but I thank God every day that we aren't fighting a war on my home soil right now.We'll never really know what kind of President G.W. Bush would have or could have been because less than a year into his first term the country was fundementally changed (9/11). He has made some mistakes, but as has been mentioned, he was in seriously unchartered territory. Would someone else have handled it differently/better/the same... We'll never know. We could be better off after all these years, but we certainly could be much worse off as well.
One thing is for certain, though. Neither Bush (I or II) is a "true conservative". They never have been.
