Do you think?
Ha, you are kidding? Bush has to hit the top ten worst presidents of all time. Even his own party wants nothing to do with him. They're happy that he just quietly snuck away. He was forced to make tough decisions in a hurry? No one forced him to go into Iraq, and all his reasons were B.S. as everyone has found out (and he knew all along). No one forced him to deregulate stuff to the point of collapsing the economy. No one forced him to create a deficit after Clinton had actually managed to create a surplus. I suppose it was just coincidence that the worst economic recession since the 20s happened under Bush? He was just an innocent victim of circumstance? And as for the Black president part, I have faith that people aren't really that ignorant. Apparently you have less faith in your fellow citizens than I do.
Absolute failure. Gross under estimate of the number of people that would take advantage, dealerships waiting months to get paid, and the major car companies still weren't out if trouble. Now you have people with new cars that can't afford the payments, in turn more bad loans. Which is a major part of the problem in the first place. As far as better fuel economy and less pollution goes, great. But that has not helped our dependence on oil at all. People just drive more. And you would have to buy into the whole Al Gore and global warming lies to think better emissions on vehicles will help anything. I'm all for less pollution, why shouldn't we keep this earth as clean as possible. But don't think for a second the less that 2% of carbon dioxide our cars produce has any effect at all on our climate.
Sarah Palin will not be the republican candidate, she is simply a face for the tea party to get behind. It's obviously to early to know anything but I'm kinda hoping Guiliani makes another run at it. What I know for sure is Obama stands no chance of reelection. I have enough faith in the American people that they realize now he is full of empty promises. Every day more and more people begin to see through him. It's really kind of a bummer too, our first black president and he wants to turn us into the socialist states of America. I've gotta think it will be a while before the people are ready to elect another African American pres.
Obviously it's Obama versus...somebody. The tea party organization will probably back the biggest nutball (Sara Palin) and then we'll have to see what the more "core" Republicans want out of their next guy or gal, what promises make the most sense, etc.
I have a really hard time believing that the next Republican candidate can stand on the party roots, as I firmly believe the GOP is at a cross roads, given that more and more Republicans have a hard time trusting them (among those I talk to) since they even more than Democrats, talk one thing and do another.
Cash for Clunkers a failure? The main failure of the program was underestimating the number of motorists who would take advantage of it and taking forever to reimburse car dealers. It was a lifeline for struggling car dealers and a shot in the arm for car makers. By getting newer more fuel efficient and less polluting cars on the road we will see dividends is less environmental impact and less reliance on foreign oil. Not perfect but a pretty good program.
Not really, there has been plenty of horrible white presidents. Only one black one. I really don't think Bush was so bad. He was forced to make some very tough decisions in a hurry. And because it didn't go perfectly he gets a bad wrap. When Obama fails miserably he just blames republicans and bush. Just look at "cash for clunkers", horrible failure. Yet nobody comes down on him for it.
Well, some names have been mentioned, such as Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Rudy Guiliani, Mike Huckabee, Jimmy McMillan, Jeb Bush, and of course President Obama will be up for re-election. Only a few people have announced candidacy, and they're generally from 3rd parties such as Stewart Alexander of the Green and Socialist Parties.
Assuming President Obama does not have an untimely demise or some devastating scandal erupts he will be the Democratic president.
Like you were saying, the Republican party is at a crossroads. Their libertarian leaning and social conservative branches are wrestling for control of the party.
i am not sure who the republican candidate would be- SARAH PALIN? MITT ROMNEY?? not quite sure, i guess i will worry about that when the time comes.
Using that logic, Bush should have scared people off voting for a White president for the next 70 years, till everyone who can remember him is dead.
the fact that the tea party even still exists is scary enough for me
If Sarah wins i miswell move back to canada
well, I'll vote for you! haha
I'll be right behind you :)
