I think so many voted for George W. because they considered the other choice worse. Where do they get some of these guys they expect people to vote for?

Probably. People shouldnt rag on any president, I think they do there best, although some are probably pure evil.

There have been bad presidents over the years as well as in any other profession. In my mind, though, a president that doesn't take the well-being of his people to heart isn't doing the best he could do.

Because he was running against John Kerry... honestly... would you want someone who had no idea of what he stood for other than that he was anti-Bush?

Are you serious, proserpine? Kerry just made the comment what he thinks of our troops. Something to the effect of if you want to succeed and not end up in Iraq make good grades. Where is he now? In a closet. Everyone is after him. Oh but he did apologize befor he went into hiding. None of the military like him because he sells them out. As far as those things he did, that was the Democrat machine behind the scenes doing those things. They just stuck their hope to be president name on it. No, I'll not stand behind somebody, that said our men and women who are fighting our war on terrorism, are stupid. I'm listening to his blunder on the news right now as we speak. Turn it on.

You keep saying "more this and more that", evidently the president did do something for these causes. You can't get more from nothing.

I feel a thought coming on ....nevermind I lost it
PEOPLE ARE STUPID! thats why, they all hate certain things i.e. so many people had issues with his actions the past 3 yrs butthen he does 2 or 3 good things and they instantly like him, people are easily, lead and have short memories

I can only respond for myself, not for the people who voted for him. I live in a strongly Republican state and I have always been firmly un-Republican. I have therefore held my tongue about political issues, particularly in the seven years I worked for a very conservative bank. It's not that I am ashamed of my beliefs, just didn't see the need to get into any arguments or debates about it. But I made an exception at work during the last presidential elections when I told my boss, "I have never in my life voted for anyone named Bush and I'm not about to start now." I think that the President has developed a talent for tapping into people's fears and has parlayed that into a political career. I think he is strangely arrogant and quite ineffective. I mean, he's the leader of the free world and can't even speak proper English half of the time. In all honesty, if gas still sold for $1.00 a gallon instead of $3.00, I wouldn't care that much about his "Gomer"-like tendencies. I still wouldn't care for him, but if he was an effective leader then whatever. I think that the Republican party and particularly him have made a habit of concealing and covering up that which they think (rightly so) will make them look bad. Then when they're found out they try to act like it's no big deal. But they can't wait to throw stones at the Democrats. And I think that he is the poster child for all of this.

I think people hear other people talking crap about him, so, like most people, they follow everyone else, instead of sticking with there own ideas. I don't think people should vote for some one just because they're of the same party as they are. they should vote because they agree with what the person stands for. I just recently turned 18 so I havent even voted yet, but when I do I'm not going to vote for some one just be cause there republican , I'm going to vote for the person I think will make a great president.

I can't speak for everyone but personally I have always tried to make up my own mind about things, and not blindly follow a party line. And on the subject of George W Bush, I have felt the same way about him since before he was president. I think that the day he became president was a dark day for the country and hopefully better days will come.

u're right, about not voting for parties, here in california, we r a democratic state, but this is the second term in a row we voted for a republican ( arnold schwarznegger ) because the first term we didn't have issues with him, he's doing a good job, and he has 2 sided views, tho being a republican he has the kennedy's behind him who r a democratic family, so i think arnold is a great governer!

i think not that many people voted for him..somehow someone hacked us over with the electrical votes and those missing chads in florida over the years. Gore got robbed. I didnt vote for him. ive been finding out the ones who did vote for him are now regreting it..pretty sad people! also alot of the voters were the evangelicals..christian folks..they thought ending gaay marriage was more important than the War. go figure.

Some people will vote only along their political party's line and not vote for a candidate of the other party...even if that other candidate is better. Also, there's that problem of the chads in Florida (where I live) and other irregularities in other states. Maybe that many people didn't vote for him after all.

Well if not thay many voted for him, how did he get elected twice? I just don't think they could make the same mistake twice, thats just ignorant. I don't think America is ignorant...atleast not all of us.

One reason is that many people vote a straight party line, so they would vote for the Republican candidate every time or for the Democratic candidate every time...no matter who ran on that party's ticket. There are also certain groups that each party appeals to, and those people will always vote for the candidate that believes like they do...no matter who it is.

Because most of America is ignorant and stupid. I feel sad and pessimistic being an American myself. At least now more people are begginnign to realize his mistakes, but it might be too late.

I have tried to figure out the answer to that question for the last six years. I think some people just vote for the party, not the man. They would never admit that their party had a crappy leader, they are so loyal to what they think the party stands for that they ignore what the person is really like. I know people, even now, who are so in love with the Republican party and its leaders that they cannot admit that mistakes, big mistakes have, been made and people are not who they claim to be, listen to Rush Limbaugh sometime and you will understand what I mean.

He won the first time because his brother was the governor of flordia and cheated for him. He won the second time because people were scared if they didn't vote for him we would have another 9-11.

How about because a lot of Americans actually do like him? It's easier to vocalize and get attention about something you don't like rather than something you do like. Especially with the liberal media. So, maybe the naysayers just get more attention. Yea for Bush!
