Bush's Visionary Goal Becoming a Reality

Discussion in 'Politics' started by drjekyllus, Jun 22, 2009.

  1. As we have seen, the people in Iran are rising up and challenging the theocrats that have pillaged the country. This was Bush's vision. A vision of a democratic Middle East where the oppressed broke the chains of repression and rose up against the despots ruling their countries. Bush's enemies in the US and Europe said it was not possible. They said the people of the Middle East did not deserve to live in free societies and they were simply not capable of establishing democratic institutions. It is now aparent that the seeds that Bush has sown have sprouted and begun to grow. The question now is whether or not Obama can provide nurishment for the seedlings or will Obama abandon the vision and allow the Middle East to continue to be ruled by brutal, autocratic rulers.
  2. Bump.
  3. What about the Saudi dictator? Oh wait, he is fine because he is friends with the Bushes.

    NK and Iran were working on their nuclear program when Bush was a president but we go to Iraq. Now most of our military is tied up in Iraq. It will be hard for any president to talk tough now if we do not have the resources to back it up. It has been 5+ years since "Mission Accomplished" and our soldiers are still NOT home and Bush could not capture or kill Bin Laden who was responsible for 911. So much for standing on a pile of debris and shouting "Wanted Dead or Alive".
  4. You mean the guy Obama bowed to? Is that who you are refering to? We know Obama bowed to the Saudi. There is no dispute. We know Obama is closely aligned with Chavez also, there is no dispute there.

    Bush handled Iran by spurred discontent from the inside. The fruits of his labor are evident.

    Bush also had NK under wraps. Now that Obama is President, they know they have a weakling in the White House. They want Hawaii, the real question is whether Obama will defend Hawaii or let the North Koreans have it.

    In a little over two years created the most divided country in decades, possibly the most divided the U.S. has ever been since the Civil War.

    Entered office with the strongest economy in U.S. history and in less than two years turned every single economic category heading straight down.
  6. Yeah sure he bowed and Bush killed Bin Laden too.
  7. If that wasn't a bow then I guess it was a real quick blow job.

    As a member of the Obama Sucks crowd, I can verify that it was indeed not a bow. Bows are done only with the waist. If you watch the video, The One bent his knee.

    Technically, it wasn't a bow. It was a curtsy.

  10. Again with this list...

    What a non-factual bogus list, ain't worth the time to prove every point bogus.

    Bush saved Iraq from becoming a second war loss for the USA. He had to hold his ground against the Congress who were for immediate withdrawal and loss.

    Few Presidents would have the balls to continue the fight while their poll ratings were dropping.
