I am an American. George Bush was elected President of this great country, not only once, but twice. Each time, as soon as the election was over, the Democrats started attacking everything thing he did, from the way he talked to whether he was a draft dodger (he wasn't) or not. I'm sorry, but I don't think the Democrats have even tried to give him a chance to do well because they are always latching on to some new something or other to scream about. For example, right now. Bill Clinton fired all 92 attorneys when he took office. No one said a word. George Bush fired 8. The Democrats are making a federal case about it. It is legal under the constitution for the president to fire any, or all attorneys, but, because they do not want this man to succeed, the democrats are trying to make it like he has committed the unpardonable sin. (Speaking of unpardonable, when Clinton left office, he pardoned about 50 criminals, some of whom were his friends, but no one mentions that.) There are many more instances that we see all the time, and, if you watch carefully, you will see that most of the complaints against President Bush are bogus, and just cooked up to make people see him as a horrible person. Actually, he is a decent Christian man, who seems to be able to stick to one wife, and to control himself when people tell lies about him. I like the man.

Thanks for your well thought out feedback. Actually I really didn't make clear or support why I don't support Bush. I am happy he is a good Christian leader, since there really isn't many of those. The main problem with Bush that I have is this whole war thing. We were only supposed to go after those responsible for 9/11. We didn't even find the leader. Now we are in Iraq. We've been over there for quite some time, I personally don't think Bush should have even taken the troops over there because Iraq as far as I know didn't have anything to do with 9/11. The storming of Iraq caused more problems than any in my view. Other than the war issues though Bush is a decent President.

We are not in Iraq just because of 9/11. With the approval of the UN, Americans were policing the "no-fly" zone around Iraq. Our planes were constantly being fired on for no reason, and the UN refused to take any action at all. Sadaam Hussain, himself, claimed to have weapons of mass distruction and it was obvious that he did, since he used poison gas to kill tens of thousands of his own people. Yet, today, the Democrats are constantly saying, "There were no weapons of mass destruction." That is a lie. There was ample time while we were waiting for UN approval to go into Iraq, for them to move their stock of poison gas wherever they liked--probably to Syria. Training camps for Al-Queda have been found in many middle eastern countries, including Iraq so I'm not so sure there was no connection between Iraq and 9/11. In my opinion, the only hope for the world is to convince most of the countries of the world to switch to a democratic form of government. Dictatorships give too much chance for abuse of their own people, as well as opportunities to attack other nations.

I don't understand why Clinton always pops up in discussions about Pres. Bush and his performance. The topic is Bush and is he a good president, not was Clinton a good president. I think it says alot that Bush cannot be discussed as a seperate issue. I also am a Christian, but the Lord I worship is about love, honesty, humility, and service. I just don't see these qualities in our president.

I support Bush as long as he supports Israel. That sounds small and even silly, but when you back the nation that belongs to G-d, you're in good hands. But, he's done some bone head things that makes me want to march right up to the White House and wring his neck. If he repented and appologized to all the races and nations that America has hurt or harmed since the begining of our time, he'd be my hero.

Also thanks for bringing up that great point. People that support Israel "Gods Chosen People" will also be protected by GOD I firmly believe that. The supporting of Israel is definitely one of Bushes best moves. I also personally support whatever Israel does.

I support Bush. That's not to say I agree with everything he has done. But I do believe he is a man of God and had family moral values. I do not agree with him helping Israel to give away their land. I just wonder of he knows what the bible says about Israel. You do not mess with God chosen people and get away with it. As for the war, I would rather them fight over there than to see it come here in our hometowns. That's where it will eventually end up when someone takes over president.
