dude, this is fucked up. granted bush does suck, people were saying the same shit about nixon when we fought in vietnam. war sucks, and yeah bush isnt too rad, but fuck. to claim hes the worst president ever is not only incorrect, but ignorant.
bush has never sent any unwilling troops anywhere.
the things that are going on in iraq today are some of the most free and most productive things to happen in the middle east in years.
one of the harshest world leaders ever, nukes or no nukes, has been taken out of power.
sure hes a fucking tool. sure hes probably underqualified for the job. sure hes a dumbass southern hick. but hes not the worst president ever...
clinton cheated on his wife and lied about it to the entire united states.
nixon stole classified documents and information from opposing political parties and then lied to the american public.
harding stole millions from the american people and corrupted the government with underqualified appointed cabinet officials.
president grant and his cabinet of appointed officials invested thousands of dollars in stocks in the railroad industry. he and the said appointed officials then approved federal budgets to fund said railroad industries contruction, while at the same time thwarting and stallign any attempt by opposing rail road companies. thusly, the railroad companies that grant and his cabinet invested in gained high, monopolistic profits without having to pay a dime for expenses. the companies' profits led to huge profits by holders of their stock.
as if that werent enough, the us treasurer secretary and grants own person secretary were involved in the whiskey ring scandal, in which governmetn officials made high profits by helping whiskey distillers avoid the governments pricey tax on liquor and alcohol.
please, read a book before you jump on the bandwagon of "fuck bush, im democrat all the sudden"

I have read tons of books, I have been registered to neither of the 'big' parties, and feel like a very informed citizen. Almost every president in history has fucked up a lot of shit, some more than others. Even Clinton did some very fucked things. But nothing compares to how shitty this Bush guy is. If I can get one kid to be just a little interested in what is going on in politics, then just maybe when he/she is 18 they will register to vote, and let their voice be heard. And I'm sure that voice will be a lot more forward thinking than the people in the white house right now.
My jaw is dropped that you would attempt to 'defend' Mr. Bush!!!
It is YOU who needs to read some books my friend, and be sure to look closely at the publisher's name before falling for what they say.
There are actually historians right now debating who is the worst president ever, and Bush is up there. Of course only history will tell where he stands, but his list of misdeeds to the American people, the American way, the Constitution, and foreign countries in the name of corporations and self interest is very long.

unfortunately, I think the internet’s lack of identifiable emotion has once again left my words misinterpreted.
i am in NO WAY WHATSOEVER DEFENDING BUSH NOR HIS ACTIONS. My direct criticism is not even of you. I have no problem with attacks on politicians, i have no problem with criticism of government. I believe that is an American right and duty to openly speak your mind about the government and what you think is wrong with it. I also believe that the country is in a sad sad state at present day.
The main problem I DO have with the public's opinion of bush, however, is that unlike you, WE ARE SURROUNDED BY FAD FOLLOWING DOUCHE BAGS. Attend any US high school and you’ll find a plethora of uninformed, ignorant bastards who "hate" bush. Ask why and all you’ll hear is "he started a war". They base their opinions on nothing but popular opinion. To be quite honest, it is the new "in" thing for high schoolers to be political, and since the most popular political stance is to hate on politicians, you of course have millions of trend following yuppies who openly bash people they really have no information about.
Now, in agreement with you. I DO believe that it is not only an American duty, but TOTALLY IMPARATIVE that the American youth is open to change and willing to stay informed to create some sort of INFORMATION BASED DECISION.
And I would like to see one statement I've made that has "defended Mr. Bush". True to what you said, he does indeed have a laundry list of half truths and misconstrued information. I in no way support President Bush, his values, or this administration. he has, on several occasions, used information in a threatening way. He’s used scare tactics to frighten the American public into make rash, uninformed decisions, fearing that their safety is at stake. I do believe he has lied to the public in order to get his way, and I think he is approaching foreign relations with a fascist mentality. There are several conspiracy theories, most of which point to Bush lying in connection with 9/11 and its after effects. Are they true? I'm not really one to say, but the fact that these things are even being mentioned raises my eyebrows at the very least.
But I DO support the rebuilding effort in Iraq, and whether or not we did take the wrong course of action in Iraq in the months leading up to the fall of Saddam and his regime, Bush HAS taken initiative in Iraq and whether you support Bush or not, you have to admit that not only is Iraq getting to be a better place, but the world is at least somewhat safer with Saddam out of power. The Toy Machine team more then anyone should know this, with Johnny’s dad having been in Iraq rebuilding. Yes Iraq is scary with suicide bombers, and maybe its not fully to a point where we can call it a full democracy, but as anyone can tell you, social change is not instant, and we are at least making progress, albeit slow.
I wasn’t supporting Bush, I am merely pointing out that there are a lot of ignorant, stupid people who hate Bush for the sake of hating Bush. They ostracize what good has been done in Iraq, and they use the war itself to outweigh anything good that has resulted from it. I do Not in ANY WAY call the administration a success, nor do I believe that Bush is a smart, good, or honest man or president.
If you in any way took my words to be against you, I sincerely apologize. I think you’ve taken on a great burden that most other icons and role models have abdicated or misused. I in no way meant to say it is YOU who makes uninformed, invalid arguments. I just hate seeing that on the website, whenever there is a post about Bush or America, the general response is “I hate bush” or “America is fucked, im moving to Canada”. You have to realize that if you say “I hate bush” that there are several people who will join in on your side for the sheer ability to say “I am like Ed Templeton”. It’s the same reason I buy your shoes, or Billy’s pants, or Josh’s boards; they’re vain attempts to have something in common with a person we admire and respect. I have a problem with people who jump on bandwagons. That’s why we’re even in this war today, because people let fear get to their heads and followed the popular theme of “we need to protect ourselves”.
I appreciate and value your attempts at inspiring the youth to change. I am only 17, and I can honestly say that thanks in part to your posts and views, I am much more informed then I would’ve been had you not spoke up, and I think that when I am able to vote, I will base my decision off of real life influences. Again, if you took what I said to be an attack against you, I am sorry. It was directed in the direction of the people who frequent this site and side with you just to be on your team.
Again, I applaud the work you do to inspire the youth to stay informed, and I hope you continue to help lead a charge for change in the corrupted US government.

The damn internet!!!!
I appreciate your heartfelt letter.
Sometimes things get misconstrued and I fear I was too harsh with my reply, directly to you, instead of to everyone!!!
I do understand that your post was to everyone as a whole, and not an attack on me.
I hope you keep contributing to our website, you help make it interesting!
Thank you for caring enough to write back.
Not many would, -it shows character.

"bush has never sent any unwilling troops anywhere."
They may be willing for the same things that make you angry, jumping on the bandwagon. Many of these kids signed up after 9/11 and on a premise of total lies, that only now they and their families are realizing and regretting. They wanted to defend their country, but in fact are defending Halliburton and company's fat rebuilding contracts, and US oil interest, NOT against the person who attacked us.
