Whether or not you live in America, chances are, you have an opinion about our current president. I'll share mine, maybe you'll share yours:
First, the way he smiles during speeches and debates gives me the creeps. Second, he's pretty good at bending the truth and NOT QUITE lying. Third, I'd rather a president that was unfaithful to his wife, over a president that is unfaithful to his country, and thus I miss that boy from Arkansas!
I think he lied about his reasons for sending our troops to Iraq. I think he is currently thrilled by the price of gasoline, which I, most definitely, am not. I think he has consistently been too slow to react to crises, and when he does react, the reaction consistently falls short of acceptability. Lastly, I don't believe he actually won the first election, and I am astounded that he won the second election.
Okay, everyone else's turn: plenty to respond to.
P.S. If you completely disagree with me, that's okay, but PLEASE attack my statements, and not myself in any response. Thank you.
First I'll address your PS... if anyone ever does that on this board and I don't notice it, please let me know... that is very strictly against board rules. As it says in the rules:
Please remain respectful at all times. ~ Do not insult, ridicule, or otherwise bash a fellow member. Disagreements are expected and perfectly acceptable... but keep it to a debate on the merits of the opinions presented, not an attack on the person who holds the opinon.
Now, on to the meat of the post
I think he is a sleazeball of the highest rank. I would much rather have a good president who is perhaps not the most honorable in his personal life, than a man who is honest in his personal life and a sleaze president. I mean come on, as the kid said in 'Deep Impact', what else is being famous for, if not to get laid? It's a LONG standing tradition, all over the world, *including* this country.
And as for him being 'elected'... I don't think he was elected the first time, really, and I am quite certain he was not rightfully elected this time, either. The crowning proof to me on this matter is a story I heard out of one of the highly contested states, though I can't recall which one. There was a county within this state that had something like 3,000 registered voters. Kerry received somewhere on the order of 2,500 votes from this county. Guess how many Bush received? Mathematics would imply somewhere around 500, right? Sure. Except it was Bushematics we used in this election... he received 6,000 votes from that county.
Now, who still thinks we actually elected him?
And don't EVEN get me started about the invasion of Iraq. And yes, it was an invasion, no matter what pretty words they try to use. "We give you the freedom to govern yourselves... as long as you choose our form of government." Grrrrrr.
"We wear the mask that grins and lies, It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes."
Hmmm... not much to discuss when we agree so much. I hadn't heard about that, as utter dismay caused me to stop paying attention as soon he was announced the winner, but I'm not surprised in the least. I am actually still utterly dismayed by the fact that at least ½ the country knows he's in office by way of election tampering, and yet there he sits. *shrug*
--------------------------------------- It's easy to be open-minded when you're one of the things people don't believe in...
The great thing about being an independent voter is you see that both sides shovel crap with equal zest.Which is one of the many reasons there is voter apathy in this country we have come to expect next to saint hood from our leaders and thats just not how politics is played. All I expect from my leaders is to do the best with what you got and dont treat me like an idiot.Is to be yourself if your a good ole boy then be agood ole boy.If you marry into to money then act like it dont go dressing up in camo pretending you hunt every season because those of us who do aint buying it.
Now a personal plea to some of the loudest on both sides of the fence
1.I am the first to say thank you to vets all across this great country you are doing or have done what many simply dont have the stones to do,and that is regardless of your reasons you were willing to put your life on the line for our great country.My father was a vet and I'm a vet,but from the bottum of my heart I say guys it's been 30 years it's time to let Nam go and move on. 2.Michael moore-You did it dude you proved to all film makers in america that there is indeed gold in the editing room. 3.Ted Kennedy,you sir should get on your knees every morning and thank your god that your last name is Kennedy and that there wasnt any vehicular homicide laws in mass.during the sixties because had your name been Smith or Jones you'd still be busting rocks in the pen.
I'm sorry If I sound callous I just think that both parties have their fair share of idiots and for the record I voted for Clinton both times.

Can I use the term "cocksucker" here? Because that's what Bush is. I don't believe we'll EVER have an honest President in this country. Gods, what i wouldn't give for a president like the character of "President David Palmer" on the TV series "24."
In the immortal words of columnust and high I.Q. woman (she's been in the Guinness Book of World Records twice for highest I.Q.) Marylin Vos Savant . . . "We'll know we've elected an honest president when the WINNER demads a recount."
"Enter my mind . . . . . . just don't be surprised if you can' t leave."
