    I was gonna title this simply; "Say something good about Bush" but I didn't want a bunch of dirty jokes about trimming the hedges.

    We've all tried to focus on Obama's positives.....what about former President Bush?

    Let's see if those with Bush Derangement Syndrome can do the same.

    I'll give it more time...but it seems that the very same people that want to cut Obama all kinds of slack don't feel the same way about Bush.

    Bush had the courage of his convictions.

    The verdict on Obama is still on-going.

    The verdict on Bush is in, so by default...the threads are not the same.

    With that said, to directly answer the thread...Bush honestly tried to NOT frighten the kids when he was told "America's under attack" on that 9/11 morning.

    But somehow you'all found fault in that too.

    So nice try.

    I don't support Obama nor much of what he stands for but I was able to find something that didn't sound like a put-down.

    Agreed.

    We need more leadership that bases International Policy on Toby Kieth Song Lyrics instead of The Harvard Review.

    He made a good speech at the cathedral after 9/11 and seems like he'd be fun at dinner parties.

    Everyone I talk to who likes him or doesn't pretty much says that. He was a good example to everyone.....but then that little political discourse thing overruled what it means to be an American the last several years so....of course anyone who posses a threat to the left becomes a pariah not through his acts but because their destructive agendas don't match his. What works is frowned upon and what is good for this country becomes evil.
