Default The George Bush debate

I created this thread after watching a programme about Bush and how he has cheated in life and how he has treated his country.
It's just terrible to think how many people have suffered in his hands.
It dosen't make sense that he got voted in... TWICE!!
When is it that American presidents get elected?
2, 3 years?
I believe Bush is destroying the US and generally everything.
I'm not american, but even Scotland has been affected by George Bush's actions.
First there's his blackmailing our honorable mr. blair, abd now eveything since then.
He hasn't got long.

A president is chosen every 4 years, though, there are exceptions.
But anyway, we can't make the American people change their opinion.
They chose him, because the majority thought he was the right thing for their country, and not necessarily for sake of the world.

BTW, a friend of mine noted that 1 out of so many republican presidents have been assassinated... Though, dunno if it's true.

That majority being a guy who stirred controversy the first time, and polarized America in the second one? Meh.

Seriously, Bush barely won the second election by the slimmest of margins, and quite frankly I personally thought Bush did something in the Florida voting in the first one, as foretold by Moore.

He got his troops' vote and used his daddy's power to prohibite his opposition's voters.
Apparently though, he can only serve two terms.
So, that's good.

Actually, don't mind me, but many people over here have a strong feeling that Bush will most likely be assassinated for what he's done. And trust me, a LOT of people who voted for Bush during the last election had turned against him, and his approval rating has dropped to an incredible low.

Meh, it's been a long, long time since we've truly had a good and honest president who thinks more for the people and not just for big businesses...

That's like saying John Lennon is bad because he did drugs.

That doesn't make him good either. And I can honestly say I'm not crazy about his music...

Now back to the topic on hand...

You are going to let one incident ruin an otherwise better than average record? Regardless of what you have to say about him, I'd rather have him as president over Bush.

EDIT: It wasn't just John Lennon's music, it was the Beatle's music, share the love man.

I agree with [ PinK BluR ], if i was in america under bush's power, i probably would want Nixon back, but because he's dead i guess it's not going to happen...

What about Clinton? He did one thing wrong, but otherwise was an excellent President.
