    Someone mentioned the Bush Administration's impact in Africa. Can anyone expound on that a bit?
    Simply put, he has pumped a lot of money into Africa. Roughly $15 billion over the course of his presidency. That means he has become quite popular.

    Popular in Africa: Bush has given more aid than any other US president - Africa, World - The Independent

    However, by contrast, Bill Gates and his wife have contributed about $50 billion to Africa, which is kind of sad considering they are contributing such a substantially larger amount than the entire country.

    I thank Bush for infuriating modern liberal types.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    Which modern liberal types are you talking about? The neoliberals who believe a free market is the answer to all of life's woes or the authoritarian socialists who look to increasing the size and spending of government as a means to an end? Personally, I think he has done a great job of infuriating both, simply by carving away at essential liberties in the name of national security and doing his part to contribute to the recession.

    Not really. I don't buy it. The only reason we haven't been attacked is because we done a good enough job screwing ourselves.

    Besides, Terrorism is an international problem, and its kind of a roullete wheel where it strikes. Plenty of americans got killed in other terror atacks around the world.

    Disaster readiness took a Hurricane with devistating results before anything changed.

    This administration has percipitated one crisis after another for 8 years.

    I don't buy the passing-the-buck game, either. Crisis is ALWAYS mounting, it is the job of the current executive to handle these things.

    Hey, I'll be president, and let all the things that are wrong get worse and blow-up--sounds like a cushy job.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Your President has been very good for Australia.

    For our national interests lie in free trade and good alliances.

    So he complemented our military and land treaties with a free trade agreement.

    And he gave us the highest access to intelligence - invaluable to us.

    We could not have asked for more.

    But you don't like him because you don't like his personality - how appropriate in this here cult of the personality.

    To be blunt, we really need to thank Bush for puting on SUCH a great acting job for the world and the retarded domestic American populus, both of which actually BELIEVE that "Bush is stupid... Bush is an idiot". He should get a fucking Emmy or something. His "Bushisms" will work so well for the benefit of America's future because when everyone looks back on the behavior of this country over the past 8 years, people will attribute it to "well, they had a dumbass, ignorant president leading them" rather than America itself.

    Friggin' brilliant, y'all don't even get it do ya? oh well !

    psst. It's called a "joke." Worthy of the comment that inspired it, of course.

    Are you saying Bush is intersexed?

    Because he enraptured the public with his demeanor, and of course it didn't matter what he did in office, which wasn't much to speak of. *coughbayofpigscough*
