Here’s an email from a guy who was a staunch republican in 2004. . .

A few major Bush accomplishments

1. Filled every level of government with incompetent ideologues
2. Ruined the reputation and standing of our country across the world
3. Invaded another country without a good reason then managed it so poorly so as to require an American occupation for at least a decade.
4. Turned the largest budget surplus ever  into the largest deficit ever
5. Decimated the EPA. Raped the clean water act. Generally surrendered the environment to big oil, coal, logging chemical and agriculture
6. Ignored global climate change at possible the most crucial period possible.
7. Concentrated wealth in for the very rich at the expense of the middle and lower classes.
8. Moved the tax burden to wages and off of capital gains thus making working for a living harder and living off of trust funds easier.
9. Expanded the power of the executive branch while at the same time removing both its credibility and accountability
10. Forced government into areas where it doesn’t belong (FCC regulating content, set the stage for a roe v. wade reversal)
11. Filled the education system with costly and pointless bureaucracy while cutting social programs
12. Put 1 million more children into poverty and removed health care from a similar number
13. Broke the military
14. Allowed the American broad band internet access to drop to 16th out of the top 16 industrialized nations
15. Blocked election reform
16. Vetoed stem cell research
17. Encouraged torture and violations of the Geneva Convention
18. effectively cut funding to police and fire departments across the country and sent the National Guard to Iraq while we are “at war with terro”
19. Allowed 9/11 to happen (this is a bit of a stretch but it was on his watch)
20. Bred a new generation of terroists while doing nothing to protect us against them
21. Spent close to a billion $ on a missle defense plan that cannot possibly work with current technology. (current switching rates for the circuits used in missles are not fast enough to make the changes required to knock a nother missle out of the air.)
22. Ruined our relationship with many allies ( Russia springs to mind.)

    Good grief, what a bunch of tripe. He has done many things well and even great. This list is full of vague blind accusations.

  2. alpha (fe)male says:

    Ha! You’re funny. I like the “blind” part, since this list is specific but you just say “many things.” It’s like when Fox News starts going ad hominem instead of dealing with pesky little facts.

    Nothing like politics to piss off readers, though.

    Still, I thought that since 71% of the country now realizes that Bush is out of his depth everyone could agree on a post like this. He has does nothing but try to increase the wealth of the top 2% (by repealing an Estate Tax on Estates worth millions–who dies with that kinda cash?–and don’t start talking about farm land–it’s exempt from the tax.)

    Bush is really a disaster. I voted for him (twice) and I can honestly say the country would have been better off with Gore. Gore is a much better medial personality than presidential candidate. I’ll never trust Rush Limbaugh again–he lied to me too many times last year–as did so many other pundits I used to respect. The only smart one is George Will, and he’s against Bush, too.
