    I don't seem to recall going balistic and in world ending catastrophe mode at this point in the Bush II presidency. I don't think I was even griping yet on how many of his campaign promises he had falied on already...

    just saying...

    Early onset Alzheimer's.

    The libs were hysteric about the totally miserable and unacceptable unemployment rate of somewhere around 5% at the time.


    10% under 0bama, that is hope, change and progress

    At this point under Bush we were still United after 9-11-01. We didn't fall apart until there was an election coming up.

    good point. regardelss of any other effects 9-11 was the biggest political boon Bush could have been given.

    Actually I did not go ballistic on Bush until I realized he was going to invade Iraq and not allow inspectors to do their job.

    I have always been against the Iraq invasion, even during the freedom fries era.

    And yeah I was called unamerican, unpatrriotic traitor, etc over my stance, but I held firm and was vindicated.
    But at what cost in lives ours, theirs and money and generating more terrorists all the while.

    That is where we will always have to disagree. I wanted to take Saddam out in 91. Nothing was between him and us but one regiment of guards. We could have been in Baghdad before he could have his afternoon tea.

    The Patriot Act was signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 26, 2001 and that didn't make you go ballistic??? You must've been asleep.

    Your opinion and you are certainly entitled to it as a vet.
    I guess the programming took better on you than I.
    But then the entire process was like tring to poke a cat in a bag as far as I was concerned.

    He was busy destroying the evidence - his "Bush Stole the Election" signs he made for the ChadFest in FL...
