Bush the worst president ever? Sallie omits some real contenders

Tue, 07/15/2008 - 3:09pm
By: Letters to the ...

I was extremely offended by Sally Satterthwaite’s column in your June 25 issue. First, I imagine she offended a great portion of Fayette County with her remark that George W. Bush is the worst president ever.

What facts is she basing her opinion on? Don’t just throw out an opinion to see where it will stick without having some facts to base it on. Besides, I seem to remember a President named Jimmy Carter — economy in the dumper, oil crisis, embarrassment of a failed hostage rescue and much more. But, I digress.

I am of the opinion that President Bush’s legacy will be much redeemed at a later date, maybe after four years of Barack Obama being president, but maybe that is what our country deserves at this point.

After all, what president EVER had as many crises to deal with as President Bush has had? Of course, he has made mistakes. But, in spite of what the liberal media is reporting, we are not in a recession.

Yes, high prices are affecting everyone, but in spite of the liberal rhetoric that places all blame for everything since the beginning of history on President Bush, he didn’t create that problem.

There have been years and years of presidents coming and going, both Democratic and Republican, who had warning after warning of the need to begin developing new energy strategies, all to no avail.

Now that there IS a huge crisis, it is popular to dump all the blame on President Bush.

We have had the Democrats in power in Washington, D.C. for over two years now. What have THEY done to help the economy, the gas crisis, the so-called recession? What is their great new plan to make us an energy-independent nation?

And prior to the early ‘90s, the Democrats were in control in Congress for over 40 years. What did they do to contribute to the problems that President Bush is now having to take the blame for?

And maybe there would have been no need to spread our military troops so thinly in so many places if Bill Clinton had done anything at all when terrorism affected us during his years of leadership.

Does anyone remember the first bombing of the World Trade Center, the attacks on our embassies, the U.S.S. Cole, etc.? Does anyone remember when Clinton had Osama bin Laden practically in his hands, and he did nothing at all except let him go?

Secondly, I am offended that Sallie wrote her whole column apparently just to make fun of and slander President Bush. Most of the column was concerning his sometimes mangled misuse of words. I am sure we all, even Saint Sallie, are guilty of exactly the same thing in our lives at times.

But we don’t have video/audio equipment recording our gaffes for posterity. Since when did it become a national pastime to make fun of the most powerful leader of the free world?

There used to be and still should be a respect for the position, even if you don’t like the person. What happened to that powerful feeling of patriotism and “pulling together” that used to describe our great nation?

It has now been replaced by “me-ism” — what I want, what I need, what I will do to get what I want/need; very little ethics or values involved.

A country such as ours has become will not remain the most powerful nation, nor will it forever remain free. I would much rather have a president leading my country who at least is concerned at all times with what our nation faces, not one who is plotting his next sexual tryst with a young intern.

Lastly, I feel safe with President Bush as my leader, and I will feel safe with John McCain as my leader. I FEAR for Obama to be my leader. He may be likable and dynamic, but he is inexperienced and so naive sometimes as to be dangerous for our freedom. How about a little more respect in the future, Sallie?

I hate to be the first to pop your bubble in your thinking that placing Mr. Bush as being the worst president ever is offensive. The fact of the matter is....He Is the Worst.
There are the obvious items of discussion that place him there, but what historians will regard as his worst placement legacy is his assault on the Constitution of the United States.
Several items come to mind, and I will not list them all, since there is not enough time.
1. His Attorney General Gonzalez and the firing of seven US Attorneys for political reasons. The attorneys, through Karl Rove, we removed since they failed to carry out desires of the GOP political operatives to use the offices for political favor. This is totally against the Constitution.
2. Mr. Bush's signing statements on laws that he signs. He actually states in the margin of the page that he is not going to enforce the law, even though he is signing it into law. This is a direct contradiction of his oath of office. He is sworn to carry out and enforce the laws of the land. He signs the law, and says he is not going to enforce it. That is an impeachable offense.

Mr Bush and the GOP has destroyed the processes of government in all three branches (Legislative, Executive, and Judicial). He has stacked the cabinet offices, and sub-set layers of government with political hacks and incompetent administrators whose only claim to fame was loyalty to Bush. The rest of the world looks upon Bush as an incompetent fool who bumbles around like a cowboy looking for a lost horse. Yes, he is the worst, and the sooner he is out of office, the better we will all be.
Now as far as W being a War president, that is something of his own creation. We have men and women in uniform fighting his war, and the rest of us watch the US Open, Cage Wrestling Matches, and continue shopping at the mall. No one is required to sacrifice. George's only sacrifice is that he gave up golf because he thought it would look unseemly if he were seen cavorting on the links while our military blood was being spilled on he sands in the Middle East.

For sure - he is the worst in modern times, and for all time.

I believe if you ask the American public, why they dislike Bush so much, everyone may have a different answer, but for most, it is the war in Iraq.

Personally, I'm frustrated too with the economic downturn, corporate layoffs, housing crisis, gasoline prices, however, I lost all respect for Bush when he invaded Iraq - an invasion based on fabricated information and lies. The other stuff he had a hand in, pale in comparison to Iraq, at least for me.

If I was a parent and watched my own child be shipped off to Iraq and killed or maimed, I would not be able to forgive myself and I would have so much hatred towards Bush and his administration, that it would consume me. I tell my own kids now not to go into the military because this is what could happen - leaders can lie to us and the military children will pay the price. Bush has hurt this country in so many ways, and this is the one that eats at me the most.

Of all he has done, this war is the worst. Yes, many others, including everyday citizens backed him but that was before we learned about the lies--NO WMDs and then his shrugging and indicating that even though there were no WMDs we needed to go in there anyway. George W. Bush is a posturing little banty rooster. Remember his infamous strutting "Mission Accomplished" fiasco? He had no idea what he was doing and still doesn't. He and his hand picked Cabinet has had no respect for the American people. More laws have been disregarded, more cronies pockets lined with millions and millions of dollars from contracts handed out to all of Cheney's subsidiaries-they got all contracts for food services, security and whatever else they could get their greedy hands on without anyone else having a chance to bid on them. And don't tell me that was for expediency. When anyone has tried to blow the whistle on fraud,etc. they are either fired or moved somewhere else. Billions have been wasted in this war while own maimed service personnel were treated in hospitals that you would expect to find in third-world countries and nothing was done until parents, etc make a stink. For some reason this country has stood by as Bush did as he pleased and laws and Constitution be damned. Talk about bringing shame to the Oval Office! That is shame. Time and money and much yelling and screaming trying to impeach Clinton for hanky-panky while in office--for messing around with an intern and not 'fessing up to it. If lying can get you impeached, George should have been long gone. George W. is to use a Texas phrase "All hat and no cattle" and we as a country are paying for his run-away ego. And I am not a bleeding heart liberal, but a shamed Republican.

I'm convinced that George W. Bush is the worst president we will see in my lifetime (quite an accomplishment, actually, since I remember the excesses of Richard Nixon). 184 days and a wakeup from now, President Obama will face a tough road restoring America's honor and dignity.

How about FDR? and he started about where Obama will in cleaning up a Republican mess.

Barak Obama is a self made man, who came from little and worked his way through Harvard. In the past few years he paid off his student loans. Barak Obama is a lot smarter than George Bush and John (doddering old fool) McCain. I want a smart president, I don't want a guy I can sit down and have a couple of colds one's with and tell jokes.

Barak Obama is no less experienced than W was when he took over and he is anything but Naive (defined 1. Lacking worldly experience and understanding).

W would like to go out of office blaming everyone else and drilling for oil in your back yard.

The Dems proposed a bill yesterday
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The House of Representatives on Thursday rejected legislation that would have required energy companies to develop oil and natural gas supplies on federal leases they have held for years or be denied future drilling access on government acres.
The vote was 223 to 195 in favor of the bill, but the measure fell short of winning the two-thirds "yes" votes necessary to clear the chamber as required when suspending the House's rules to quickly act on legislation.

195 Republicans voted AGAINST the measure;
yet they'd like to open up MORE leases, while these sit idle.

Democrats said companies hold millions of undrilled acres in federal leases and the legislation would have pushed firms to develop those potential energy supplies. "We are saying drill it or lose it," said Democratic Rep. Nick Rahall, the chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee. "Drill for oil and bring relief to Americans at the pumps."

One must note that even if these leases were to begin exploration and it could be 5-7 years before this oil comes online.

Most of the crises George Bush faces are crises he and his administration have caused starting with a war in the wrong country.

You brought up the very reason some of us want to say how badly Bush has damaged the Presidency!

The "Office" is what is ultimately important, not the holder of the office. If that person was most important we should keep one forever as do some nations!

Not covering up many, many transgressions with speaking out may keep future temporary leaders from the same mistakes.

It may even keep us even from electing such people, as was warned before he even was nominated!

First, the Democrats took Congress in Jan. 2007. Not "over two years." Second, prior to Jan. 2007 Bush only issued 1 veto, and that was in Oct. 2006. Since then he has issued at least 18 more, including one that would have given a 3.5% pay raise to our military. He stated that that was too high but he would sign a 3% pay raise.

Second, Bush failed to respond in any way to the rapidly rising oil prices. Yes, you are correct that this should have been addressed many years ago. But Bush did little until last year when he finally asked the Saudis to increase production. Why didn't the Republican Congress and Republican President open up ANWR and offshore drilling? Bush only recently has supported alternative energy, and only recently pushed conservation. But in his speech a few days ago he refused, when asked, to actually ASK the American people to conserve. Yeah, he's right, $4.00 per gallon is enough incentive, but as the leader of our country is it not appropriate for him to lead on this issue too?

Here is a fact, the historically weak dollar has hurt not only the economy, but also the price of energy. The Bush tax cuts along with his horrendous spending has added $4 TRILLION to the National Debt. This is a major reason for our devalued monetary system. I don't want to pay taxes either, but when we went to war and added trillions to national security, we needed to pay for it. This was done under a Republican Congress and Republican President. Can anyone explain this other than "it's the Democrats fault?"

You say we aren't in a recession. The majority of citizens disagree, along with economists.

Yes, Clinton should have gotten Bin Laden. But Reagan and Bush senior shouldn't have armed and trained him. They shouldn't have supported Saddam and armed him. Somehow you forget that. Also, by the time the blame for the Cole was finally determined, Bush had been sworn in. HE FAILED to act. Why don't you mention that? How come you don't ask why he didn't warn the airlines that a known threat was issued that Al Qeda was planning a major airlines event in late summer of 2001? Why weren't the airlines warned about the 10 hijackers KNOWN to be in the U.S. and KNOWN to be Al Qeda? They didn't use aliases. Why wasn't a watch list posted? Richard Clark, Bushes terrorism expert stated that he tried to brief Bush but Bush wasn't interested.

My last point... you ask "There used to be and still should be a respect for the position, even if you don’t like the person. What happened to that powerful feeling of patriotism and “pulling together” that used to describe our great nation?" Don't you remember Bush senior campaigning against "Bozo and Bubba" when referring to Clinton and Gore? Maybe that's where the disrespect started. And I doubt that you personally showed much respect to President Clinton while he was in office, did you? Certainly the 90's were a horrible example of a constant attack on the office of the President. Surely if those attacks were deserved, and they were, then so are the attacks on Bush. Case in point, as he was telling the nation a few days ago that the economy is great, Bernanke was testifying to Congress that the economy is not doing well. Here is the exact quotes:

Bush: "I'm not an economist, but I do believe that we're growing. And I can remember this press conference here where people yelling "recession this, recession that" -- as if you're economists. And I'm an optimist. I believe there's a lot of positive things for our economy. "

Bernanke "the fragile economy is facing "numerous difficulties" including persistent strains in financial markets, rising joblessness and housing problems — despite the Fed's aggressive interest rate reductions and other fortifying steps."

Maybe you should practice what you preach, and respect the office even when it is held by a Democrat.

Respect it kind of like Clinton did, maybe? And by the way, tax cuts stimulate the economy and increase revenues. IF you don't have a give-away Congress and President. You are right in one area. President Bush and the Republican Congress should have done more about the energy problems when they had the power. Now we have Pelosi holding it up.

Whew! When I wrote my response, it was only 1 of 2. Go away for a week and...man... what a blog! Anyway, I didn't know if you were responding to my blog, but here are a couple of points.
My reference to the Office of President was not a defending of the alley cat president, Clinton, but that it is too common for Bush supporters to say "respect the office," (since they can't defend him any other way), while in the same breath bashing Clinton. If one thinks the office should be respected, then it should have been respected during Clinton's administration. It wasn't by the media, the bloggers, the Republican's, etc. So it is hypocritical to call for a ceasing of our disagreement with Bush by saying it "disrespects" the office. Actually, it is what differentiates us from other countries, we can openly question our President. In fact we need to as a duty to keeping our government accountable.

My second point, is that if the tax cuts were actually working, how do you explain a yearly $500 billion deficit, an increase during Bushes regime of $4 Trillion in the national debt, a devaluing of the dollar in all markets, the Euro was $.97 in 2000, it is $1.58 today. I don't like paying taxes either, but Clinton left us with a $125 million yearly surplus, a fully funded Social Security, and a strong dollar. Bushes tax cuts and his outrageous spending (remember it was a Republican Congress and Republican President from Jan. 2001 thru Jan.2007) who drove our country to the brink of bankruptcy. Since the tax cuts have been in place, please explain your theory that they have stimulated the economy? By the way, just for fun, look at your marginal tax rates under Clinton and see if they are significantly different under Bush. I know mine have stayed between 19% and 24% depending on certain issues. The 24% was last year, under the Bush tax cuts.

Just some food for thought. My economic situation was vastly better under the strong Clinton economy than after the famously heralded Bush Tax Cuts.

You are looking a lot like a Kool-aid drinking Democrat who would vote for a yellow dog - registered as a Democrat - instead of a human Republican who stands on two legs.

Am I wrong? Read no further - I apologize.

Am I right? I hope not, but now you have to read.

So, lets say your comrade in arms John McCain is defeated by people like you who vote Democrat instead of looking at the content of the candidate's character instead of voting for the color of his skin.

Now we have Obama in the White House in January of next year and he is going to do what? Run a war he wants to lose by retreating? Raising taxes on the "rich" - that's you dude. I assume you are a pilot making $276,776 last year on your flights to Europe and that puts you in his "rich" scope.

Gas prices? His solution is to tax the oil companies. I know you are smart enough to know that these taxes will be passed along to the consumer, but most Dems don't consider that. Just in case one Dem other than you is reading - higher taxes mean higher costs to you.

After January 2009, you can't blame this all on George Bush. You have to either take responsibility for your stupid Obama vote or just pay more and more and more. Good Luck.

you certainly do. Your response shows the problem with our country. We don't talk issues, we insult and degrade those who disagree. The pundits encourage it and the politicians embrace it. We elect based on hate, fear, and anger. That is certainly how you come across.

I hate paying taxes too. But if you look at our national debt, the abysmal failure of Bushes policies, and what you actually pay in taxes now versus 1999, you may be surprised. The Bush tax cuts combined with a yearly Republican National Deficit of $500 Billion has caused our current situation. Where were the "fiscally responsible" Republican's from 2001 thru 2006? When (who was it) said that "Congress is spending like John Edwards in a beauty parlor," they were talking about a REPUBICAN Congress!

We are in fiscal crisis. China pretty much owns the U.S. Our dollar is historically weak on all fronts. Our Social Security system is in crisis. Our housing market is tanking. Our National Debt has increased over 60% ($5.7 trillion in 2000 to over $9.4 trillion in 2007). Energy prices are at all time highs. Partly in due to speculation that was slid into an appropriations bill in Nov. 2000. Look up the Enron Loophole and see McCain's former Economic Advisor's role in that little gem.

So, why not stop insulting me because I am a pilot, or a Democrat (neither of which you have any idea as to the truth). As to your first paragraph, You are wrong! I accept your apology, but I did read further.

We can go on and on and actually discuss issues, but it really is you who has drunk the Kool-aid. You appear to have no interest in reality. We are going to pay for the Bush National Debt in too many ways and for too many years. Even Reagan and Bush 41 had the courage to reinstate taxes to stop a screamingly out of control national debt.

So, we'll see if Obama or McCain wins. My vote is not yet decided. I will vote for the candidate who I think will offer the best solution to our problems. If McCain gets off his pandering campaign and actually addresses the issues, I may certainly vote for him. But that is my business. I assure you my vote will be based on issues and solutions, not "stupid" and not straight party line. Wish I could say that about your vote.

Frustration is present in everyone right now, but it does not need to be slung around the room as I and others have done. I do know you are a pilot because I peek through your window when you are getting dressed - you stud, just kidding.

Anyway, regarding the Dems vs. Repubs kool-aid drinkers, it is obvious you are not one and neither am I. Apologize - kiss,kiss.

But seriously, this election is scary because of the kool-aid drinkers. Obama has convinced hundreds of thousands to register who have never voted before. McCain has inspired no new voter registrations and is running a campaign that reminds me of a car running out of gas. His only chance is to name Lieberman as VP. Rice and Powell would also do the trick, but they are too smart to get involved.

Obama may even take Georgia if he goes for Sam Nunn as VP - that ices it for him. 2 southern states - maybe 3 and he's in.

So, we get Obama as President. You ok with that?

See how civil and mature I can be when I'm not drinking and hubby comes home on time - for a change??? I apologize to all for my attitude last night. I'll be better now.

We need to listen to the experts on the economy; look at what worked in the past to correct an economic down spiral; look for strategies that will unite this country - and be aware of the mental games that are being played to separate us as Americans. The oilmen have accomplished their objective. Their families will be independently wealthy for generations to come.

Methinks you have some incorrect information, Mom. The people that run oil companies are salaried employees who get some stock options and might control 1% of the company's stock. The other 99% is owned and controlled by stockholders who have no say in the running of the company, but certainly benefit from high earnings and dividends. Exxon/Mobil's largest stockholder? Bush? No. Cheney? No. Ted Turner? No. The answer is The retirement fund for the teacher's union in California. How about that? A triple play of liberalism - teacher's, unions and California all wrapped up in this huge (and imaginary) oil scheme to take over the country. Facts are really interesting, although sometimes inconvenient when they don't fit the thought template of the media that dumbs down everything for us and tries to play on this wealth envy thing that seems to have crept into your subconscious.

But, on to opinion. You say we need a strategy? Sure do and here it is. Drill for oil where it is - not where it is not. The reason people are frustrated with liberals is that they are so impractical. They say the oil companies have all this land leased that they can drill on now. Don't you think that they might have checked that out already and if they could extract oil from there they would have already done so? And build some refineries while we are at it. That in itself will increase the supply of gas (but not oil) and lower the price. Anybody notice that all this talk in Washington last week about drilling where we should actually chilled speculation in oil futures and lowered the price significantly?

Be practical - that what built this great country - not Republicans or Democrats and certainly not liberalism or phony environmentalism (which is actually the wolf of socialism dressed up as granola-crunching, sandal-wearing sheep). Like that metaphor?

And yes the next President will certainly have a huge mess to manage. The two finalists don't inspire me. The best thing for the country would have been Hillary since she could have actually made things much worse much quicker than any guy ever could and 2 years later there would be a huge revolt against the liberals in Congress and the Republicans would instantly have a supermajority in the House (they all face reelection every 2 years) and then 2 years later Jeb Bush would beat Hillary and sanity would return to Washington. Just kidding about Jeb - this country has had all they need of the Bushes and the Clintons.

If I may jump in here, your frustration with liberals is matched on our side by the denial of facts and lack of logic we perceive on your side. Oil companies now have 78 million acres of Federal land under lease. You asked, “Don't you think that they might have checked that out already and if they could extract oil from there they would have already done so?” The answer is no. Of the 78 million acres, 30 million acres have not had a single test bore drilled on them. When House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Nick Rahall introduced a bill three weeks ago to increase the lease amounts from $1/acre/year on a graduated scale up to $25/acre after 4 or 5 years, the Republicans fought it tooth and nail and eventually defeated it. After much hue and cry, the Republican message finally centered on claiming that there was no oil on the leased land.

The fact is that the potential of the 78 million acres is not known and the lack of logic is claiming there is no oil there while simultaneously not addressing why, if there is no oil, the big oil companies won’t let the leases go.

You make a some valid points in this argument. However, of the 78 million acres less than one third has "recoverable" product. The problem lays in extraction and accessibility. It's kinda like saying there is oil under Mount Everest. Why can't we get to it? I was recently reading one of many petroleum magazine articles in which we are able to drill more efficiently, at greater depths now, offshore than ever before. We are talking about sub sea drilling around 7000 to 10,000 feet. Not bad, me thinks.

The refining of oil shale in the past has been cost prohibitive. Keep in mind, I said in the past (15+ years ago). There are a couple of refineries around now that have the hydro forming and hydrocracking abilities to produce heavy fuels from these shales and oil sands (Canada). Most of these oils are considered "sour".

to be "liberals."

Let's take a page out of the old, dusty GOP contract with America that has not been used ever: PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY.

Frustrated as you might be, the party you support and their economic policies, unchanged by this democratic congress, have lead to the largest deficit increases we've seen in our Federal Budget Deficit. They have unbalanced the budget balanced by President Clinton and the Republican Congress of the late 80s.

We have two perpetual wars that your guys are still redefining our reasons for being in.

Your party has assaulted civil liberties and privacies previously protected by The Constitution.

They attempted to over rule state's rights in the Schaivo case.

They have attempted to amend the "strictly constructed" Constitution to ban gay marriage.

Deal with it without your blindly lashing out at everyone as if they are the problem. Your party has had the keys and the driver's seat to this bus since 2001. We are where we are, and unless you have some solutions, you might as well hurl insults at yourself for voting for a bunch of people who feel government doesn't work to run the government. They have proved that their form of government doesn't work, and they had no help from liberals in doing it.

Well duh, you are talking about Republicans and Repubs love to say how they are "the party of Abraham Lincoln." I can't think of another President in history who had less respect for the Constitution and civil liberties than Lincoln. That's OK, he gets a free pass since only the outcome is remembered and not everything before reconstruction. Since Lincoln was "right,"the ends justified the means. Is that any different than the neo-cons' mentality today?

As far as having no help from the liberals in running things south, I saw plenty of it then and now. When it comes to waste, Robert Byrd is still the undisputed king. Ted Kennedy and Nancy Pelosi can't wait to spend money on anything. Harry Reid takes the image of the Senate as being a more calm and collected political body and turns it into Romper Room on crystal meth.

The blame game has plenty of targets and no one is innocent. That includes so-called conservatives and the libs. That's why Congress has an approval rating near single digits and the public is totally disgusted. It's way beyond liberal vs. conservative ideology at this point.

For always being the voice of reason. Using perjoratives against people who may have different views has never seemed too smart or "democratic" (oops, let me state right now, I was not referring to any political party!). I thought this space was for people to voice their ideas and beliefs. Evidently there are some who believe you only have those rights if your ideas coalesce with theirs. You constantly prove them wrong. Again, thank you. Shalom

"They do it too" ain't working here. Mudcat has developed a pattern of name-calling and issue avoiding. This is what this is. If Mudcat, you, or anyone else want to start a free-for-all blog, go for it. There are times, however, that reasonable people seek to debate ideas (internet stalkers not withstanding.) So don't brush off your anti-social fellow conservatives as doing what other people do. You might choose to try and reign in the "stupids", "kool-aid drinking," and "dumb" verbiage that is used when one is in an indefensible position.

after standing in the "blog" ring for these past few months, I have taken all I can take here and have to get away for awhile. Clinton? Bush? whose the worst? would you rather die of tuberculosis or cancer? Between them they have damaged the Presidency, maybe irreparably. The have damaged the way we, as people, view the Presidency, and they have damaged the way the world considers our nation.

You all go on arguing which was the worst, I am turning my energies to trying to change the way we, as voters, view elected officials and the way we elect them. Keep the faith.

In my opinion, Clinton showed great respect for the Office of the POTUS. By not caving in to the demands that he step down, he prevented the office from being compromised by "mob rule". The due process of impeachment was initiated and the results are part of history.

Submitted by USArmybrat on Sat, 07/19/2008 - 1:18pm.

Clinton defiled the Office, both figuratively and literally. He was and is a sleaze. What he did there was not a private matter; it is the OFFICE of The President, for God's sake!! He lied under oath among so MANY things. I can't believe you people sometimes!!

Submitted by MYTMITE on Sun, 07/20/2008 - 9:19pm.

If you believe Clinton was the fist president to have intimate relatonships with someone other than his wife, either in or out of the Oval Office. That has been going on for years with both Democrats and Republicans. The difference is that before this period of time, the press and everyone around was aware but did not publish what they knew. Read up on your American History. Not the feel good history taught to fifth and sixth graders but read some of the autobiographies of our former presidents, true biographies, not hack jobs. Some of our most revered presidents had mistresses before, during and after their tenure as president. Some of them had their mistresses on the government payroll so they could be near them. I am in no way condoning Clinton, but he was not the first, will not be the last but was the one unlucky enough to have it flaunted in the media and to have a hounddog of a prosecutor go after him. Where he goofed was in not admitting what he had done, shed a few tears, say he has learned his lesson and would probably have had at least one more four year term. I have never been a Clinton supporter, but I am a realist--and try to live in the real world. The perfect world would be the one where no one lied, cheated, committed adultery, hurt, maimed or killed anyone else--but we do not live in a perfect world and I doubt if we ever will. And again, I have to say that the things Clinton did were nowhere of the magnitude as those done by George W Bush to this country while being the "perfect" husband. If I had to make a choice I think, in spite of his flawed personality, I would have to choose Clinton over Bush.

As far as economics the President has a minor role. Look to the Federal Reserve for the real driving force behind the economy - not the Pres. Although Obama seems intent on hurting it, But the only way he can do that is if the Dems control the House and Senate. No way that will happen. Right? Right? Please tell me that's not possible.

I never said he was the first to have an affair in the White House but he was the first to be convicted of lying under oath, I believe. And I believe it was the right thing to do to go into Iraq. I believe this War on Terror will last a long time and will be in other locations. I also believe if Obama gets in, we can kiss this wonderful country good-bye. With his inexperience and Marxist leanings, it will bring about CHANGE we will forever regret.

Submitted by MYTMITE on Mon, 07/21/2008 - 10:36am.

I may be wrong but didn't Nixon beat him to the lying bit, or was that not done under oath? First of all I do not condone Clinton's actions. But the lying only came after months and months and millions and millions of dollars spent trying to bring forth the fact that he had his "fling" in the White House. As I was pointing out, if "they" had not been out to get him and if it had been a different time and place, those in the know would have shrugged their shoulders and life would have gone on. I am not saying that that would have been right or wrong but simply stating a fact. I am scared at what is already happening to our country and definitely scared at what will happen regardless of who is in the Oval Office. I definitely do not think Obama is the answer-- I see lots of words with nothing to back them up. A scary, scary situation. I think McCain is more qualified-his age doesn't bother me-but some of his ideas do. I am afraid that our country is heading for big change and not for the good. What so many Americans don't want to face is the fact that we can go down as many other great nations have in history. And we are already on that slippery slope. God help us.

Denise could put them under the table in shame. We know why she is gone and who did it. Denise could care less. She got tired of fighting with babies.

You do a great job. Stand up for what you believe in. They don't bother me anymore. I understand how they are. With their rage against conservatives they have to live miserable lives. We know this by their posts.

Whether you know it or not Denise was involved in the muddle thing, why do you think she is not here anymore? You have a theory lets hear it. While muddle might have had a second ID, it was not an evil twin like your Lily's was, you've almost had as many IDs as dollar, as far as Git is concerned, you aren't half the Christian he is, and I really don't think any one on here but you could call me a liberal. If being a liberal is not slamming someone over the head with my religious beliefs, then yeah I guess I'm a liberal. I've met Main once, I don't know if I would call her a friend, but I would call her an acquaintance, and I would most definitely call her before I would call you. BTW, point out my mistakes if you can find one.

In words what did Denise do? I don't have a clue what happened to Denise. She had a hard fall and is not able to get around much. As if you would care? She is taking alot of physical therapy. I haven't heard from her that much.

For your information I had as many id's as your good friend Git. You have assumed that I have more. You were saying I was people that I wasn't. So, get over it. There are alot of here that have lots of id's. You know some of them.

As far as being a Christian there is not a level on being a Christian. Git being a Christian is between him and God. Just as mine is between me and God. You don't make me feel bad. I just think you don't know about Christianity. So, saying Git is a better Christian than me does not matter. If you understood Christianity you would know that.

I don't care what you think of me. You are just ticked off about something. I don't care if you call me friend. That's fine. You thought saying that would make me upset. Sorry, didn't work. I know my value and it's not based on what anyone says.

My point is you start acing like the people you hang around with. There has been 3 or more that has told Main what they think of the kind of attitude that is brought out when Main posts. Actually, I feel sorry for Main. Main is not a happy person unless she fights with you or you agree with her. I like Main, she need to get a grip on the frustrations in life.

I did not have a thing to do with Muddle's being fired. I have a friend that was looking at Christian Colleges to send their child and ACC was one of them along with Lee College. It was Main that said what ACC was. Main is still here, always will be.

You know what Hutch, I have peace with all of this. You can dislike me and it's okay. I still like you. Things are fine with me. Your buddies are not above me nor am I above them or anyone else.

With all of the other vocal Dem's and liberals on here, for her to have gone after muddle is still confusing. He never aligned himself with any political party that I could decifer and always presented himself as a "follower of Christ", so her intentions were just pure evil, as far as I'm concerned.

For months now, you have tried to either "out" people or hurt them in some way on the blogs. I think people are just really tired and weary of your games and you should give it a rest. You have tried to share your input on here several times under several names and we can always tell it is you. That's not the issue. The issue is that you continue to be a nasty jerk on here and try to hurt people, either with words or insisting on meeting them for coffee while you have ulterior motives. Just knock it off, okay.

If you want to play here, fine. Just play nice and quit being a jerk. And just so you understand and stop asking - NO - I will never attempt to meet you in public, and most likely won't attend the coffee gatherings with others. What happened to muddle should be a lesson for all of us. My family and my well-being are too important for me to share with someone as disturbed as you, and Denise.

That whole deal with muddle showed me that there really are scary, creepy people on the internet that want to hurt others. I teach my own kids not to chat with creeps on the internet and I need to follow my own advice.

I play nice, you name calling is like a 4th grade kid. Really, is your life that bad? Jerk, I loved that movie, I think it's my favorite, well they could cut out the cuss words so kids could watch it.

Are you the police patrol on here now. Telling people who can post and who can't? Now, that is funny.

Questions? No, SWEETIE I have you figured out.

Answers: I know why you won't go to coffee meetings, I might show up and well you know the rest.

Denise is not disturbed, she just got the best of you and you could not handle her and the next thing I know she is banned. I also know why other side trax and beaver were banned. You just want to get to me with you nasty ways and words. Little do you know I can take alot off of people. People are valuable.

Any Questions?

If you don't answer this question it's not true. So far your buddies haven't answered. That means it's not true.

What did Denise Conner do to you?

Simple answer if she did it to you. If I don't get a response it's NOT TRUE.

I assume I left my reply up long enough for you to read it.

Now can we move on?

You never put it up. You put up hints. Then your buddies started to email each other. You never put up what Denise did.

If you don't tell me that means it is not true. Simple as that. I went through the archives and it's not there. You never said anything about Denise.

If your going to accuse her of something you won't mind to share it.
If I don't get a response it's not true.

If you don't get ANOTHER response it is because I think you are an unstable fruitcake who was banned from this site and therefore should not be asking me questions.

If you don't reply to this post it means you don't feel like it. Smiling

It's not in the archives. You did not say what she did. So, it's not true.

Denise Conner didn't do anything to make Muddle loose
his job.

It was another reason you lost his job. If your afraid to put it up.
There is nothing about her name that says that. So, that means she is innocent.Smiling

Irrefutable logic. “Your” not going to be able to win on this one.

Her philosophy, like color television, is all there in black and white.

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you have heard six credible witnesses, each of whom testified that, on numerous occasions, they witnessed my client not killing anyone.

On the other hand, the prosecution has managed to present only three witnesses who allegedly witnessed my client killing the victim, and this was on only one occasion. So you see, ladies and gentlemen, the preponderance of testimony establishes my client's innocence! You must acquit!
