    Bush is human and is therefore fallible. It seems most people on this board think otherwise however. I would like to see an honest admission by some about what Bush has done wrong as President. This would validate many claims made as not being just driven by their love of Bush. Discussion does not go: Bush good, therefore everything he does is good nor does it go: Bush bad, therefore everything he does is bad.

    This is a general request to anybody who vehemently defends Bush to reveal things they dislike about Bush.

    I disagree with the premise of this post. No one has ever claimed to even implied Bush infalliable. Heck i dont consider the Bible in infalliable, why would i consider Bush as such?

    We've had many disagreements with the President. if you bothered to read most of the posts it would be obvious which ones they are.

    1)Illegal Immigration is a big one
    2)His Medicare plan
    3)Stupid f&*^%$ %)#%)@ Campaign Finance reform
    4)Giving into democrats on the international oversight for this upcoming election.
    5)Allowing Ted Kennedy to write the Education bill only to have Ted Kennedy attack him on his education policy.
    6)Not defending his judicial nominees more and pushing them through harder.

    OK, I'll start.

    I think that Bush's stance on immigration is dead wrong. Bush should not placate immigrants by allowing amnesty. He should also put troops on the borders to keep the Mexicans out (and the Canadians, too, but I think that's a lot less of a problem).

    I think that Bush's position on the federal government's role in education is wrong. The federal government should be less involved in education, not more involved. I do like school choice, but I don't like the federal mandate for it.

    Signing CFR also sucked.

    Medicare prescription drug benefit... not a big fan.

    Thank you, this is a good start.

    By the way, I never said anyone claimed Bush was infallible. I was merely setting up the post. And I have read many of these posts I would just like to see them all in one place to get the bigger picture.

    Thanks to everyone for posting.

    You share your list of concerns with Kerry first, if any. Remember him? Your candidate? I know it's hard to have criticisms when you know as well as I do he has given no concrete specifics of what he will do regarding most issues. Please try. Try to be a little open minded.

    What would make a larger miracle is finding democrats who think GWB has done anything RIGHT.

    How about the same from the other side of the fence... an honest admission by some about what Bush has done right as President. This would validate many claims made as not being just driven by their hate of Bush.

    Anyway, I thought that's what this whole board was about?

    Great post as well, however not this post. I would like to keep it narrow and concise.

    Also, noticed I did hint some thought he was infallibe. Oops, should not have been in there. I wanted to set up a syllogism for the purpose of the post. Sorry.

    Oh come on CSM - give him a break. You really expect him to post everything that's wrong with kerry? With that much typing, the poor guy will wear his fingers down to the second knuckle!
