Fran's second thought having re-read it: How come he never says Iraq once? Isn't the death of over a thousand American soldiers slightly important to the next four years?

The whole farce from over here looks like he's living in a fantasy world, he's enjoying lavish, million dollar balls whilst on the streets of Baghdad American soldiers are scraping the remains of suicide bombers into garbage bags.

Certainly Bush is attempting to emphasise freedom, but wouldn't it be a good idea to actually focus on the most important issue in the American world, nay, the whole world, right now?

In a military sense he was woeful. With the sheer size of the Russian army they should've been able to crush everything in sight, as it was they barely managed to win a war against Finland.

He was cruel, oppressive, insecure and daft as a brush. Nobody in Russia was sorry to see the back of him.

Im not saying he was a saint or what he did was right for anyone. Youre right, of couse he could have done a lot better for Russia, but he did bring her up to the modern age of industry at the time.

Im not defending him at all, I agree that things would have been a hell of a lot better without him, I just wanted to say that he wasnt completely incompetent.

Ok that's just blowing it way out of proportion. how about saddam hussein, slobadon milosevic, radovan karadzic, ratko mladic, edi amin, mohamed farrah aidid, khartoum, I could list dozens more, but maybe you should start with these to get some perspective. I wouldn't call Bush a good president, but it's rediculous to compare him to Stalin.

Didn't Stalin kill more people than Hitler? If so poor analogy.

^yeah he did, huh, just realized I didn't list hitler on my list of people worse than bush, but that one's pretty obvious, so it doesn't really matter.

Alejo's reply to Fran's though: (I like the 3rd person speaking haha) I think that he didn't mention Iraq for a variety of reasons.
1. He knows he's messed up already in the handlings of it.
2. He was at a mid-hostile crowd and the mentioning of Iraq could not have been great.
3. Balls have been done for a while, it's just kind of a way of congratulating (or at least giving them a break) of the normal daily decisions/work that they normally make.

i went up to these bush protestors on my campus and called them lowlifes, and one of them called me a "typical right wing fascist". I laughed so hard. One, considering I am not republican. Two, I don't have a favorable impression of the prez. But, these guys had signs and statues comparing bush to hitler. That isn't liberalism, that's extremism. And, the signs right next to them said things like "bush: divider, not uniter". well I'm glad to see the liberals are working hard at uniting the country as well when they compare the prez to hitler. it's so fashionable to hate bush, but most of the people i talk to (including these protestors) don't know what they are fighting. and signs that say "bring the troops home" - how stupid. You can't start a fire then let it burn. We have to finish the job there, even if we went in on totally false pretenses. the liberal's beloved kerry would say the same. In fact, his views on the main issues were exactly the same as bush's, except he was so vague on his position. i'll stop there for now.
