I thank god that this man will finally be out of office. He has ruined and ended way too many lives... We need peace, not war. Having bush out of the office will be a very nice, needed change.

I think everyone is short sighted. Yes, the Global War on Terror has cost us the lives of some of the best men and women, but at the same time it is saving more lives by keeping all the fighting overseas. Our economy is up, consumer confidence is up, taxes are down... These are just a few things that are being overlooked. Here is what will change if the Democrats gain office: You will lose your tax cuts. Businesses will be taxed more making cost of goods go up. Minimum wages will be increased, making taxes go up. Illegals will get more leeway, making profits go up. There won't be any change in the war on terror. No one seems to realize that just because the President changes doesn't mean that the troops will drop everything and come home.

I think there is an inherent short-sightedness when it comes to the whole notion of the 'economy being in great shape'. While the economy may be good for the creation of more low-paying low-skill jobs, we have been seeing a significant decrease in the number of well-paying low-skill jobs such as those in the manufacturing industry. I also read in a study that suggested that people today work more for less money then they did during the 1970s, and that wages have remained stagnant for the average worker since the 80s (inflation adjusted). On the flip-side, those who are in the top 5% income-wise have seen a dramatic increase in their overall earnings. With the exception of women, the average wage in the past 20 years has remained flat...in some cases wages have actually went down: http://tinyurl.com/2vqswy I agree with you though that the democrats have taken a blind eye to the issue of illegal immigration. I wish political parties would focus more on targeting companies which employ them. Instead they just say "they do the jobs Americans don't want to do" or in other words "we allow the companies to exploit foreign labour because our own domestic labour cannot be exploited to that point under domestic laws" It's all greed!

If it were to happen, we would see a much more stable world. But the problems would still be there. Bush has wasted many lives, yes, but kicking him out of office won't end those problems. The war in Iraq won't stop automatically. Palestine won't be free all of a sudden. Everybody wants peace, of course. But to achieve that, all of humanity needs to work together. US is a powerful country, but Bush has overlooked many smaller developing countries. I agree it's time for a change.

Bush leaving office is going to have no impact on war. Anyone who thinks that is fooling themselves. Smith & bobmnu.....You are correct. The Demoncrats are always claiming that they can do a better job-when they are out of power. When they are in power, then their inadequacies become strikingly apparent. As I recall, the top tax rates used to be in the 80-90% area before Reagan cut them. The Demoncrats have been furious about that ever since, because they love those high taxes. It allows them all that pork spending that they so dearly love. They support all of these Social Issues that really solve nothing other than strengthen their stranglehold on our freedoms and rights. Bush was wrong with the Patriot Act, but the Demoncrats are mad just because they didn't think of it first. Socialism is their ultimate goal, and they won't stop until they have achieved it. They believe in high taxes and no personal responsibility. They are an embarrassment to the species.

It will be an interesting 2008 election because the Democratics will not be able to run against President Bush. All I have heard for the last 6+ years is bad Preisdent Bush is and how the democratics could do better. I did read a speech where Nancy Poloie stated that the people who make money in the stocke market should be taxed at 80 or 90% of their profits and give the money to the poor. That means that I work all my life and save my money so that the government can tax me and give the money to someone who choose not to work and live off of others. I beleivein the free market and not socilisum. The Democratic Party to me stands for taking my money and give it to the poor. The leaders made their money and now want to make sure that no one else gets rich. One other question You want peace and not war - when are we going to finish President Johnson's war that was started 40 some years ago and has cost this country trillions of dollars and there is no end in site. Many of the cities involved in this war have a killing rate of 1000 to 2000 citizens per year. I am talking about the War on Poverity.

There is actually more than one way to look at how Bush has performed his presidential duties. One could say that because the Iraq War has gone on so long and so many lives have been lost that he is a failure...but I don't think that is a longterm view. I don't know if Bush has made many right decisions, but I also know that you can't believe everything the media feeds you, and I've seen the media control so many people's opinions it makes me sick.
