    Here it is, June nearly over...Dubbyuh's poll numbers sinking like a rock...His social security "reform" legislation DOA...Republicans jockeying for position in '08...Bolton's nomination ground to a halt. It sounds as if Dubbyuh has become a the lamest of ducks. Not the legacy he had planned.

    Things could have been different if he'd actually used the put the faith America placed in him after 9/11 to good use. Instead he focused on the politics of polarization and divisiveness. He worked to concentrate power in the hands of the Republican majority in Congress rather than working to form a bipartisan coalition that could actually accomplish something.Instead, he and his advisors chose to brand any who opposed them as "unpatriotic" and "traitors".

    He squandered the goodwill extened to the US by the rest of the world after 9/11 in a foolish, wrongheaded and illegal invasion of Iraq. A war which few Americans now support and one which is gutting our all voluteer military and enfeebling it to the point that it may not be able to adequately deal with any other threat to national security. In the course of that war, the attrocities committed at Abu Ghraib in Iraq, Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan, GITMO and elswhere shredded the remaining fabric of US credibility abroad. They also served as potent recruiting tools for the terrorists the Administration claims to be fighting.

    This Administration may yet go down as one of the greatest failures of a presidency in American history. We can only hope that the next president, regardless of party or ideology, will be able to pick up the pieces and restore the standing of the office as well as America's standing with the world.

    Keep telling yourself this. Bush has kicked major ass. Go sit in the corner of your padded cell and rock some more.

    With the dems suggesting what? No alternatives, no ideas. Bully, you are so wrong here. Bolton will probably be appointed after Congress adjournes. Not the best way, but perhaps the only way. http://www.usmessageboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22174 or this: http://www.blogsforbush.com/mt/archives/003119.html
    Hmm, he reached out, again, but again there was no reciprocity:

    Done to death Bully. Not illegal. As for support, how do you explain the retention numbers? It's the recruiting numbers that are getting the news, but the retention numbers are way up as are those reservists asking to become regular forces. Why do you think that is, Bully? Could it be the drumbeat of the MSM, vs. what people learn on the ground? Hmmmm????
    Whoever is the next president, of either party is going to have a tough time on their hands. Both with the war that is ongoing, China in all likelihood, not to mention Iran/NK. Syria is lurking. Africa is going to become a focus. Social Security is not going away. So yeah, good luck to whomever follows. The 'World' is not going to love us Bully, unless or until someone destroys more than 3k of us. Get. That?

    Bush still has some life in his adminstration so don't rule him out yet. Though, the next President will probably be a Democrat.

    They're hardly facts.

    The fact is by all usual measure the economy isn't too bad.

    The fact is that a democratic election in iraq is a success liberals can't stand.

    "Restore the standing of the office"??? You mean like Clinton did? Or Carter before him? Don't puff your chest out too far when it comes to the sorry litany of Demo presidents, you certainly have nothing of which to be proud.

    And the only thing that will go down as a great failure will be the efforts of petty, wormy, little Democrat maggotts whose only contribution to this time of trial and peril is to pick nits, point fingers and bemoan every real or imagined trivial little insult done our enemies while railing against not only the administration, but our troops as well.

    Durbin is your poster child. I thought you had more sense than to pick such garbarge to associate with. Guess I was wrong.

    Yes, you keep on wearing those rose-colored glasses, take your meds and just lay your head back and think happy thoughts.
