I don't recall W. ever making one of those.
Before Bush came into office, it was the stated policy of this country to remove Saddam from power. Bush accomplished that thereby enhancing US security in the vital Persian Gulf in a way that no other President before him had ever done.

Prior to the Bush administration, it had been the policy of the United States to combat Al Quada around the globe. During Bush's 8 years, Bush moved this policy foward and fought terrorism like no other President had in history. The Taliban was removed from power in Afghanistan and thousands of Al Quada terrorist were captured are killed all across the globe. Just compare what the United States successfully did in this area over the past 8 years compared to the Clinton years.

On the Economy, for most of the last 8 years, the United States experienced some of the lowest unemployment and poverty rates in its history. Low inflation. Strong GDP growth, and a better average debt to GDP ratio than the Clinton years.

In the coming years, will see a much more positive and objective assessment about Bush even from Democrats and liberals. In some ways, Obama is already moving away from some of his often repeated campaign statements.

I doubt it. I've already seen a lot of Republicans actually turn on him, the am talk guys are, some of his biggest supporters in my personal life I've seen turn on him. But you are right, most president's approval do get a little more favorable with time, I'm just not sure his will rise as much as others.

True, but somethings are almost a given... On this you may be part of the .01%

Not that you and Memphis were necessarily considering this particular breed to round out the future household...

Hopefully wherever they got the dog doesn't receive death threats like the breeder of the Bidens dog. Animal nutters.

we want one. not necessarily this breed, given our work schedules -- we'll need a dog that can be alone, at least until i can write from home a majority of the work week -- but a dog is absolutely a part of the medium term future once we get out of our prison-like but pleasantly affordable and close-to-the-Metro apartment.

we actually had dinner here on saturday: Lost Dog Cafe and Gourmet Pizza Deli in Arlington, Virginia

The president did well with the pirate deal. He allowed the military to use their discretion, and kept quiet publicly until the job was done.

And thanks to the SEALs we have one more brave American coming home alive. And a New Englander at that

Let the guilt begin.

Article - WSJ.com

WASHINGTON (AFP)--The Somali pirates who took a U.S. merchant captain hostage for five days were heavily armed but inexperienced youths, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Monday, adding that the hijackers were 17 to 19.

What do you honestly expect from this? What kind of guilt and from who...

and mature people read that -- mature people like the Bush holdover Gates -- and realize that it's the ages at which young men are recruited and heavily armed with no training that's part of the greater tragedy at hand here in the Horn of Africa, and in parts of the rest of the world. in no way does it detract from the necessity of the mission at hand, it simply illuminates, in a tragic way, the enormity of the problem that exists.

but go ahead and create a whining "liberal" straw man. because that's all many have left these days.
