    :eusa_shhh: This is a good example why Republican's (like myself), voted for "Change" by voting for Obama. :cool:

    He ran on a great foreign policy, then changed his mind. Obama isn't going to change anything, however. More nation building, more policing the world, a continuation of the "war on terror," and I'm sure we'll remain hostile towards Iran as well.

    I, for one, am/and/was willing to at least give Obama a chance for "change". A change from what we have had for 8 years (really the last 4 years). It was said before the election, and the fact still remains ... Bush was one of the huge reasons Mcain lost the election, we Republican's lost faith in the party. The other equation for McCain losing was, and is, obvious. Sarah Palin. He had one strike against him (Bush) from the "get-go" ... then he buried himself when he chose her, as his running mate. :eusa_eh:

    Wow - a Republican politician lied during his campaign to get elected.

    Read my lips, I am NOT a crook!

    Wow. Any politician lied during his campaign to get elected. Of course, such a thing could never, ever happen again. From now on, we can take every campaign promise at face value, secure in the knowledge that everything any candidate says will come to pass immediately after the election.

    Sure, that's the ticket, sure.

    As for what happened, the philosophy of the PNAC had a huge influence on foreign policy during the Bush Administration.

    Bush was never a real success in business. He sure wasn't as president.

    You may be able to get anyone elected, but that doesn't mean they can do the job. He looks and acts like he just wants to get the hell out of Washington and go back to where ever he will go.

    Clinton blew it in office, but did a good job otherwise. He also did not want to leave office because he was equal to the task.

    He didn't change at all. He started out as an incompetent buffoon and remains one to his day.

    I have come to the conclusion Bush and what he says are not connected. It is as if he suffers from some aliment that doesn't allow him to reflect on his words or his deeds. I wish he could leave now.
