    Am I crazy or didn't these events happen?

    Did Bush have the highest approval rating of all Presidents, higher then FDR, Clinton????

    Will historians report these events as "non-events"?

    Will school books NOT teach there was a Dot.com bust or 9/11 never occurred or
    the WORST hurricane SEASONS occurred? Anthrax attacks... never happened??

    Are all of you people so deaf and dumb to the realities of what REALLY occurred during Bush administration OR are all of you including so called Right wing conservatives so totally brainwashed by the MSM regarding Bush.."spent like a drunken sailor.." "LIED and people died".

    Bush has the HIGHEST ratings... HIGHER then FDR! Higher then Clinton by 23%!

    Where were YOU people AFTER 9/11 for example when Oct 2001 bush had a 92% approval rating??

    WERE YOU people somehow missing... "fog of war"???

    Behind the Numbers - Approval Highs and Lows

    A) Didn't the marvelous dot.com ( that Clinton phony surplus bubble)* bust occur? YES! What did it cost?

    1) $5 trillion in market losses which meant the taxpayers who had tax liabilities of $166 billion from 2002 and beyond GONE!
    2) 300,000 jobs lost due to dot.com busts....billions in payroll taxes!!!

    B) Did 9/11 happen??? YES what did that cost?
    1) $2 trillion in losses meant $66 billion a year in reduced TAX payments from 2003 and beyond GONE!
    2 145,00 jobs lost in NYC alone due to 9/11... what did that cost? Billions in payroll taxes!

    C) DID the worst hurricane SEASONS not hurricanes SEASONS occur? YES what did that cost?
    1) $1 trillion in losses meaning $33 billion a year in reduced tax revenues!
    2) 400,000 jobs due to Hurricanes Katrina/Rita

    again NOTHING Bush could do to prevent! After all he is definitely not the Messiah as Obama is considered!

    IN spite of those monumental events Bush had at the end of 2008 136 million working versus at
    beginning 131 million a gain of 5 million more working IN SPITE of 845,000 jobs lost due to dot.com/9/11/hurricanes!!!

    5 million more people working then when Clinton left office!
    • 2001...... 131,826 41 0.03% Dot.com bust, 9/11 occurred $5 trillion in real losses, 18,000 businesses
    • 2002...... 130,341 -1,485 -1.13% 9/11 residual losses
    • 2003...... 129,999 -342 -0.26% tax cuts began
    • 2004...... 131,435 1,436 1.10%
    • 2005...... 133,703 2,268 1.73%
    • 2006...... 136,086 2,383 1.78%
    • 2007...... 137,598 1,512 1.11%
    • 2008...... 136,790 -808 -0.59%

    And IN spite of dot.com/9/11/hurricanes...
    GDP when Bush took office 2001 $12.355,271,000,000
    GDP when Bush left office 2008 $14,359,490,000,000
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    A 16% increase in GDP or $2 TRILLION !

    SO PLEASES IDIOTS including some of you stupid conservatives EXPLAIN THAT THESE NUMBERS ARE FALSE!

    Explain these EVENTS NEVER HAPPENED!

    What in the hell has Obama faced?? NOTHING! NO attacks, NO collapses! NO DISASTROUS weather events!

    AGAIN PROVE ME WRONG!!!
    Show the FACTS that counter the above EVENTS!!!

    OR are MOST of you including Conservatives STILL in the morass, the fog of MSM crap too IGNORANT TO admit these FACTS HAPPENED!
    Bush was at the HIGHEST approval rating and some of you agreed!
    But rather then think independently use some brain power... you idiots fell for the MSM bias! Their hatred of Bush/GOP/Conservatives and even you conservatives
    always wanting to be loved by everyone seem to ignore the REALITIES!
    The dot.com bust happened!
    9/11 happened!
    Worst hurricanes happened!
    YeT you all sit back and BLAME Bush for events HE had to contend with and IN spite of a hostile, biased MSM.. Bush encouraged the GDP to grow!
    Employment to grow! In spite of having to spend $600 billion in Homeland Security organization!
    In spite of having to counter the MSM/Democrats ENCOURAGEMENT of TERRORISTs..(which is so damn obvious today when the PRESS compliant with Obama was so loathed to call Ambassador Stevens murder done by Al-Queda as it destroyed Obama's narrative !)

    When traitors like OBAMA encouraged the terrorists by saying our military was "air-raiding villages, killing civilians"... you idiots and the MSM said oh that's freedom of speech!
    EVEN though during WWI and WWII such statements would have been totally considered treasonous!

    And In spite of the above MSM/idiots like you and traitors like Obama, Durbin(our troops are nazis) Murtha (cold blooded killers), Kerry "Terrorists"!... Bush stood by our military!
    AND if any of you had any guts you'd ask a military person today WHEN were you most proud of your C-I-C????

    I think Bush did pretty well with a few exceptions like the patriot act, TSA and the bail outs, But that's just my opinion.

    It's amazing isn't it?

    That Bush had such overwhelming national and international support after 9-11. To think what Bush could have accomplished

    Instead, Bush made the following blunders

    - ignored the international community and called them cowards for not backing his Iraq invasion
    - Abandoned the war on terror to invade Iraq
    - Lied about Iraq having WMDs and being involved in 9-11
    - Ignored human rights and locked up people in Gitmo without charges and without a trial
    - Engaged in TORTURE
    - Botched the number of troops on the ground in Iraq

    As a result, Bushs approval ratings dropped from 86% to 26%

    Abandoned War on Terror... HOw do you think Osama was killed... Obama didn't think the plan up as NAIVELY you must think???
    LIed about WMDs??
    THEN WHAT DID THESE people do???

    BEFORE BUSH ... When CLINTON was President...
    "..deny Iraq the capacity to develop WMD".Bill Clinton,1998
    "..most brutal dictators of Century", Biden,1998
    "Iraq compliance with Resolution 687 becomes shell game"..Daschle 1998
    "He will use those WMDs again,as he has ten times since 1983" ..Berger- Clinton National. Security. Advisor 1998
    "posed by Iraq's refusal to end its WMD programs" Levin 1998
    "Saddam has been engaged in development of WMDs which is a threat.."Pelosi 1998
    "Hussein has chosen to spend his money on building WMDS.."Albright 1999


    " Ignored human rights and locked up people in Gitmo without charges and without a trial"
    Are you really that naive??? GEEZ these terrorists in GITMO were NEVER covered under the geneva conventions which are countries... these guys never belonged!
    They were TRIED under MILITARY rules cause this is a "WAR on TERRORISM" you get it???

    TORTURE??? 3 guys held under water boarding! THE SAME TORTURE used in our military training!!!

    But why are you responding because YOU don't believe any of the events occurred. Bush was the boogie man because YOU believe EVERYTHING you read!

    YOU are wrong when you wrote....... "dropped from 86% to 26%"

    Here's a look at the highs and lows each president has experienced since 1938:

    Please USE FACTS NOT GUESSES!!!

    Coalition of the willing?

    Tonga, Latvia, Mongolia sending a few dozen token troops?

    Where was Mexico, France, Germany......Canada?

    They all told Bush he was crazy and that Iraq was no threat. Bush told them "My way or the highway" and called them cowards. A glaring reason why Bush's overwhelming global support disappeared
