Elusive,

Accuracy and facts are obviously not a big concern of this list. Those that believe it and use it may get the pleasure of having Bush as their president for another 4 years.

He could be President of the USA!. Oh that's right, he is. Too bad that I have actually witnessed a great deal of these stats, and wish I could say they aren't true... And he just may be able to buy his way back into the White House in '04. He's raising alot of money. That will probably get him back in, alone. Who can compete with the tv propaganda that amount of money can buy.

Looking at this resume, I wouldn't even hire you for a position at McDonalds. But I do have to admit that some of these entries are exaggerated and I do not tolerate those who exaggerate on their resumes. But those that are true make you a huge risk. I will have to deny your application. Thank you and good luck.

The list is, for the most part, silly.

Now, to answer the original question: Based on the fact that President Bush built his campaign to invade Iraq on a foundation of pure, unabashed deceit, he clearly has no business holding the office of President. Bush is a disgrace to that office.

However, if I were a company CEO, I would hire Bush as my P.R. flack because he's great at distorting the truth and whipping the buying public into a feeding frenzy. He's utterly fantastic at that sort of thing.

"Based on the fact that President Bush built his campaign to invade Iraq on a foundation of pure, unabashed deceit, he clearly has no business holding the office of President."

Sting, I think it goes without saying that no one on this board would hire or elect Sadaam to anything. We are discussing President Bush, not Sadaam Hussein.

yes, but Sting always resorts to bringing up Hussein anytime someone criticizes Bush. Poor debating tactic, of course, but easier than actually finding Bush's good points, I guess.

sulawesigirl4,

Its also a poor debating tactic to ignore fact and reality and worship unsubstantiated allegations.

Bono's shades,

Look a little more closely at my response and I think you might understand what I was talking about.

Sula, don't you ever get tired of using the phrase "poor debating tactic"?
