Happy OBAMA day!

Or, more importantly, happy NO MORE BUSH DAY!

Know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not on what you can destroy.

I'm not sure the relatives of the victims of 9/11 would agree with you.

President Bush freed Iraq from Saddam Hussein. I have a nephew in the Army and they found yet another mass grave with about 80 bodies of men, women and children back in October. We have built schools where there once were none. Businesses are opening and most parts of Iraq are safe, thanks to the US and allied troops. They are training Iraquis to protect themselves.

President Bush has sent more money to Africa to aid the orphans and victims of AIDS than any other President.

He built up our military that was gutted by the Clinton administration, and will soon be gutted again by the Obama administration.

The neutering of our military (again), even bigger government, and a deficit approaching trillions of dollars isn't going to be good for the country or the future of our children. The tearing down of states's rights isn't going to be good for the country either. History has taught us that governments who overstep their boundaries and try to act as nannies to their citizens turn into tyrannies as imperfect men become drunk with power.

Are you a relative of a 9/11 victim, or was that pointless rhetoric?

Why is that a good thing? So your kid can have a job?

Bad?

> even bigger government,

Don't get me started on the Bush administration and big brother. Homeland security is an example of huge government expenditure. Further, one of homeland security's responsibilities is to spy on american citizens, and this is far outside of constitutional bounds.

>and a deficit approaching trillions of dollars

How much has that war costed so far? That's ok, Bush would have created a tax cut to eliminate the deficit.

Even if Bush was still in power, we're going into a recession, and so any president (democrat or republican) will start doing a lot of government spending. Government spending is going to increase.


>The tearing down of states's rights isn't going to be good for the country either.

How about civil rights?

Bush and Cheney were both great example of imperfect men, drunk with power, seeking tyranny.
