Since September 11th, we had no attacks while Bush was in office. I will reserve a little judgement, but since Barack has taken office, and we've apologized to the world, look what happens. Not only on our soil, but on our military base?



Just because he has a Muslim name doesn't mean he was Al Qaeda. But it is just a little bit coincidental.

Bowing to kings is just the start...



My thoughts are out to those families though. Terrible.

This stuff just didn't happen when we had Bush in the White House.  The rest of the world knows they can do anything they want without reprisal now.

Nov 5, 2009 7:24 pm

I agree. I remember the look on Bush's face on 9/11 when his aide told him what happened at that school. I knew then that al Qaeda f*cked with the wrong man.

Yes sir ... You could see the anger boiling.

Don't worry, the nanny state will take care of us.

OK....I will not waste much time on this subject, but I have to chime in...first let me say, I am neither a Dem or Rep...I consider myself to be Indy (politically that is)...and vote for who I think will do the best job.  I did vote for Obama, and the jury is still out whether or not it was the right choice, although I believe it was the only choice at the time. 
 
NOW....regarding the quote above, "W"...I consider myself to be above average intelligence, however, never in my years have I ever looked at an Amer. President and thought I was smarter than he, until "W" that is!  We saw 2 very different things that horrible day in 2001 my friend, I saw a deer in headlights who barely moved....I will say that after he went back to D.C. and consulted with his people, he acted swiftly and decisively...I do prefer a hawk to a dove in the Whitehouse, although even after doing what at the time seemed to be proper retalliation, albeit against the wrong people, he declares "mission accomplished" quite prematurely.  Moraen, I would bet dollars to donuts that you are in the extreme minority of Military folks that approve(d) of this buffoon!  I could go on, but it gets me too fired up.  Just my .02

 Couldn't agree more. The entire world knows our leader wears a skirt and wants to glad hand everyone instead of kicking someone's ass.
Nov 5, 2009 7:50 pm

What ??? Morean is in the minority of military folks for approving of Bush?  That is absolutely false. Those who are fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan have seen first hand why we need to take Hussain and Bin Laden out. What about mass graves don't you understand?

 
You aren't smarter than W by the way. You just think you are because the media pounded him relentlessly. Obama f***s up words and phrases every week, but you won't see them on SNL because NBC is in his pants.
 
It is stiffs like you who are "independent" who bought what Obama is selling and put him in office. Have an original thought!!!!!!!!!!
Nov 5, 2009 7:51 pm

W was loved by the military (from what I have witnessed), I also thought he was very smart. The ability to read a speech off a teleprompter does not equal intelligence to me.



Bush's biggest failing to me was he was loyal to a fault. He kept people around him that gave him bad advice too long. Also, his lack of vetos drove me nuts.

In a company of over 100 men, exactly five said they thought Bush was an idiot and a bad President. I was in Iraq during the election. Most people completed their absentee ballots. Nearly to a man they voted for Bush. Keep in mind this is an Infantry unit, so I don't know what those other pogues did. I didn't vote (statistically speaking, it doesn't count).



I think people see what they want to see. Not saying that he had the deer in a headlights look, but if that's what you saw, then that's what you saw.



For the record my brother died in the war on terror. Shortly before he died, we went on vacation to Austrailia. He told me, I'm glad I fought this war under Bush and not Clinton.

You get BO off the teleprompter its an "uh, umm, ahh" every other word.

Holy crap! The gunman has been posting suicide bombing crap for the past six months. Law enforcement was "watching". Guess what would have happened in the Bush admin.? Snatched up by CIA agents and beaten until he gave up his homies.

Nov 5, 2009 8:50 pm

Unf**kingreal! Well technically he hadn't broken laws so what we needed to do was talk to the young man, support him, and put an arm around him. You know to help him get through a tough time.

Agree 100%  Funny how quickly people forget about 9-11 and how scared americans felt that day.  When Bush went against Kerry in 2004 security is what got probably got Bush re elected, 4 years later it hardly came up with Obama, people seemed to feel safe again and did not really care.  They just wanted to blame the GOP for high gas prices and a poor economy.  To bad they did not realize Clinton signed in the sub prime laws in 1998 that brought this mess on.

Do you have a link to an article w/this?  I'm looking at Foxnews and can't find much info on the guy.

I don't vote to put the best candidate in office, I vote to keep the worst candidate out of office. I would say neither party can take credit for doing the best job. I decide which candidate will do the worst job and vote for the person most likely to keep the other candidate out of office, because lord knows before four years are up either one of the candidates will f*** up. So the challenge is to decide who will f*** up the least. For me it is usually the Republicans because they lean more towards less government. But even that seems to be fading.
 
All I can say is fix any one of the current government programs before you f*** up and create another.
 
I guess S.S., Welfare, IRS etc. is going so damn smooth we are crazy not to add health care to the list.
 
Government will never outperform the private sector.

Oh, but puleeeze don't take my freedoms and liberties away by tapping my phone, or puting my girlfriend's panties on my head until I submit.  That would be soooo degrading and humiliating.
(but I'm OK if you want to give my illegal a$$ some free healthcare - all you sorry taxpayers are gonna pay for it!)

3rd - here is an article from Foxnews.  It talks near the bottom about how he came to law enforcements attention 6 months ago.  I usually like to pull news from several different sources, since I don't trust them.  Sometimes fox reports things cnn doesn't and vice versa.

Also, HKA - You can read in here how Hassan didn't like the wars and how he frequently got into arguments with other officers.  That one's on CNN as well.  Not on MSNBC though.

Morean - sorry for your loss. As for Bush, I think history will show he was a lot better President than he is currently given credit for. Whether you voted for or against him, he did not govern based on polling or for acceptance from foreign leaders. For the most part, he knew who his friends were and who were wolves in sheeps clothing. He was not afraid to make a decision and was a decisive leader and had the best interest of the USA at heart even at the cost of his own political capital. In my opinion, he was the best man for the time period he was President.
