"Bush" LOVERS

I'm Curious.

I want to know why people like President Bush so much. What are your reasons? What is it about him that makes him appealing to some and disgusting to others? What about his character? Do you believe everything he says? Does he have any faults in your opinion?

I read this article in the Village Voice over the weekend, and a Bush supporter stated that Bush has never lied, the abuse of Iraqi prisioners was not true, and that Bill Clinton was basically a dirty liar. So this got me thinking: WHAT DO PRO BUSH PEOPLE LIKE ABOUT....BUSH?

So this discussion is really for all the Bush supporters and maybe some undecided folk. I'm very curious.

The main reason I defend Bush is because he gets picked on so much. It is becoming stereotypical, redundant, and even comical with some of the conspiracy theories. I really don't like the guy that much, I don't believe him, and I don't trust him. I feel that way about all politicians, and it annoys me to see the Democrats defended liket they're perfect and do nothing wrong and everything Bush does is wrong. Why? Is it because you love abortion so much? It has to be it. Kerry hasn't even said he'd stop the war. So basically, I don't even like Bush, I am just sick of seeing him trashed.

I am surronded by supporters.


I believe I know what their answers are.



I think this is a good question.

However, your opening post is a bit loaded.


I would ask that anti- bush members here do not respond or rebut in this thread.

Let the members who support him give their sincere reasons why they do support him.

I support President Bush because he isn't pussyfooting around with terrorists and evil dicators like Saddam Hussein. Terrorists want each and every American DEAD and Bush is going to get THEM before they get US!

People may think that Saddam Hussein had absolutely no connection to terrotist actions, but Saddam Hussein is evil and not at all pro-America. I find it hard to believe that Saddam wanted nothing to do with al-Queda!

Saddam murdered hundreds of thousands of his own people, and even if he may not have weapons of mass destruction now, he certinaly WAS capable of creating them. If a few years down the road Saddam unleashed a WMD on the Western world (which he had the potential to do) many of the same people who critisized the war in Iraq would critisize Bush for not recognizing the threat of Saddam Hussein! Bush took down Saddam before he could take down us!

Saddam Hussein is an evil person and you can not negotiate and compromise with evil! Telling Saddam Hussein to not use Weapons of Mass Destruction and keep his promise that he made to the UN is like a mother telling a bad child to stop misbehaving instead of taking action and MAKING him stop misbehaving. Saddam was getting away with everything he was doing because NO ONE STOPPED HIM. They told him to stop and asked him to stop but no one TOOK ACTION untill BUSH! Bush went in and took Saddam Hussein OUT!

People of Iraq no longer have to worry about being killed by their leader! Bush's plan is to spread democracy throughout the Middle East, BUT this is no overnight project! This will take generations, but Bush has planted the seed and eventually other countries will follow. That is why I think it is crutial to have Bush re-elected!

Well, this will be my first post since joining today.
I like President Bush because he is a great man. Our history with Iraq has been one promise after another. On their part. Yeah, they'll get rid of their missiles and junk that they say they don't have, and yet, How many yueas ago did we have pic's of them. And they have over and over again given us reasons to go over there and kick their sorry arses. They blow up their own pple for Christ's sake! What other reason do we need to go over there and straighten their country out. However! Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with everything he does. Especially over there, I don't think there's one president we can all say, as Americans that we have liked and who has done EVERYTHING right. For example, after teaching them something of a lesson, (which I know is a very contradicted statement) he is trying to settle them in politics or something, I forget what the word is, but he's trying to help their revolution. They have said, as a people they don't want his help. Just like when we, as Americans didn't want the help of other countries in our revolution...but Bush is not listening. He's trying to make them more independent, which, I THINK is a good thing and needs to be done! But they DON't, and that's one thing I don't like. But, it doesn't look like, right now, that he's done so much for our country in this place of need we are in. BUUUUT!!! He's doin a heck of a better job than anyone else that I can think of that would doo if they were in office. Course, I don't know yet. But my guess is, these pple are makin a whole lot of promises that they won't be able to keeep if they were able to become President. So anyway, suffice it to say, I believe in what Bush is trying to do. But there's a whole lot of stuff that contradicts it, and I think he should have stopped while he was ahead.

First of all, I've yet to meet a person who is pro-choice and "loves abortion" -- most people view abortion as something which is never a good thing, but is sometimes the 'lesser of two evils.' Secondly, to claim that abortion is the only reason for people to support the Democratic party is a huge over-simplification. Political life is so multifaceted and complex that it's far less common than you assume for people to support a party based on only a single issue. And finally, the tendency to behave as though your preferred candidate is perfect is one which is common to all political parties. If you think back to Clinton's presidency and the level of sustained attacks against him by Republicans it becomes clear that Republicans are just as capable, indeed some would say more capable, of the sort of mud-slinging you seem to object to.

As far as Bush is concerned I will not say a thing, I will leave this thread to those that support him. But I just wanted to say that this is one of the most intelligent statements I've seen made in here in a long time. I think everyone should be this open minded, non-judgmental and not twist people's view like this person has done. I mean this is what FYM is all about. That's all...

I hope this was meant tongue-in-cheek, as it is wrong on so many levels it's not even funny.

No one's rebutted Bush, just insensitive comments. Personally I'd like to see more post in here, so I can get a feel of what it really is people do like about the guy.

Abortion the only reason to support the Democrats? No. I won't get into the particulars but no, that's not the only factor for me.

I have to admit I find it quite ridiculous that people (in general, not you specifically) believe they should be able to make misguided comments (ie you support Kerry because you love abortion) without anyone disagreeing with them. If those who support Bush are confident in their opinions then they shouldn't fear others questioning their views. FYM would be an extremely boring place if we had separate threads for those who support Kerry and those who support Bush and didn't permit any discussion or exchange of views.

Okay, let's get this thread back on track. Tackleberry's original question was a genuine one; let's let people answer it. Everyone here who is anti-Bush has lots of reasons for saying so, but not in this thread.

Any more derailments will be dealt with...
