What Has President Bush Been Doing? lol

It seems that the current president is trying to deregulate a lot of items before leaving office. Guess he feels that we aren't paying attention to the White House while the race is on and hot. The one I feel is very important is the standards in drinking water. We must have all read or heard the reports about a lot of cities having many different forms of medications in the water supply. Is relaxing the standards really a good thing after the reports? Does any of the other deregulations sound good or bad? http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27466701/

For a President that has an approval rating in the low 20s or teens, this action further confirms that George Bush will go down as the worse President in American history. Americans on both sides of the ledger believe that the country has gone and is still going in the wrong direction under George Bush's watch, so what makes him think that we would approve of anyting he does as his Presidency winds down? He should do the right thing and bow out gracefully. He needs to pull the same disappearing act he pulled during the Republican Convention and throughout John McCain's Presidendial campaign. Since he wants to remain active during the last two months of his term in office, maybe we still can bring him up on charges for all the crimes he and his cronies comitted over the last 8 years.

I have had a hard time understanding this administration. I guess I was younger during the past administrations and somewhat didn't really care what they were doing. Or maybe I don't understand Republicans. They want smaller government I understand that part. But, what about a more powerful government because that's what we have gotten with this administration? Sorta leaves me baffled.

"So should the leaders of the Congress with an even worse approval rating also gracefully bow out? Or should we reward their incompetence with handing them a supermajority?" President Bush is the leader of our democracy. I expect him to be smart enough to deal with the issues facing the American people whether there is a Democratic or Republican Congress. President Clinton was able to do just that. Stop placing blame on a Democratic Congress that's been in power for only 2 of George Bush's dismal years. Just face the fact. You supported an incompetant, uneducated dismal President who should have never set foot in the White House. It's time for Bush to go. He should be lucky he's not in jail. Lloyd

Thank you very much for this best response. What I wrote was the truth and sometimes the truth hurts. I stand by my view that President George Bush should have never stepped foot in the White House. Anyone with an ounce of honesty knows that he wasn't qualified to lead our nation. Yet those on the right elected him not once, but twice. Now we see the consequences of those actions. Pure disaster not only here in the United States but around the world. Once again, thanks for this special best response. Lloyd

Zeph, you'd be nausiated at whats been going on while we've all been bickering over wardrobes and birth certificates. The northcom civil assistance plan, 3rd infantry devision deployed on our own soil for "civil disturbance training", the new FISA, resolution S 1959, random border checkpoints 100 miles from the border (no, im not exagerating), 300 billion dollars in credit to brazil, the list goes on. But it's ok america, go ahead and keep moving along with the rest of the heard over more "important" things like Obama's secret muslum religion or McCain's medical records or Joe the plumber's licence for that matter.

Who is doing all of this stuff? Isn't Congress out campaigning for themselves? Are these all normal things that go on at the end of an administration?

The things I'm talking about aren't really talked about. If they were, you can bet constituants would be screaming for heads. Or so I had hoped. These are all things that happen while our attention is diverted by "controversies" the media and the candidates tell us we should be paying attention to. Not that it's an intentional conspiricy, but I don't believe for a minute they don't see the fringe benfits of our attention being drawn to trivial things and capitolize on it.

I don't know how many people would actually care about border checkpoints. Most I see are so against immigration, little do they know how many crappy jobs those illegals do that American citizens don't want to do.

he is probably at his ranch at Texas feeding his horses and farming. That is what he was born to do. History will remember him as a mistake. I thinks the water problem is more of a local thing.

George is always up to something. I wouldn't trust him for nothing. No one has been paying attention to him so now is the time for him to get to work. There is no telling what unknown mess he will be leaving for our next President. As for the water supply, I won't drink the water in our little west Texas town. It literally makes me sick. We buy bottled water & feel much better about it. I can't wait for this year to be over with!

Are you all hoping that he will retire maybe somewhere in say Alaska? lol I'm sorry you have to share a state with him but, atleast Texas is fairly large. We use filtered water since I started reading all the reports of the medication in water supplies. My city wasn't on the list but I can imagine that there is stuff I don't want to drink in my tap water.

This is just what lame ducks do in their waning days in office. I liked it when Bruce Babbit put through all the regulations to protect the enviromnment but I don't think I like the idea of relaxing environmental protections. Still there will probably be plenty of time in the next four years to right these mistakes along with a gazillion others.

Hopefully the next president will be able to fix some or most of Bush's failures. I'm hoping for my candidate but, if the other guy gets in I hope he does well. I think after Bush my dog would do a better job. So the next person will look like one of the greatest lol

I think George Bush is not a good president too. He does not focus on people but focuses on war and other countries. He believes that making peace with other countries will solve our problems. But it doesn't. We still have many economy problems and problems with security. I think Borrack Obama should win the elections instead of John McCain. Like George Bush, McCain focuses on war as well.

I really agree that we need to get off this whole idea that blowing everyone up instead of talking out problems. It really reminds me of my children. By the way welcome to mylot.

It seems the environment isn't the only thing Bush is targeting in his final days in office. Look at this "Conscience Rule": "Bush is expected to sign a rule giving health care workers latitude to deny medications and procedures. Seen as a broadside on abortion it could also put hospitals at odds with state laws ensuring rape victims' access to emergency contraception." http://www.womensenews.org/article.cfm/dyn/aid/3828 And add it in with THIS: "Federal funding for family planning clinics could dry up under a proposal from the Bush administration. Pro-choice advocates attacked the proposal as an assault on women's health and for expanding the definition of abortion to include birth control." http://www.womensenews.org/article.cfm/dyn/aid/3672 Annie
