I've occasionally suspected what was stated in the original article in this thread: that the Bush v2.0 administration never intended to end the war on Iraq. Instead, it will be a new frontier in the war on terrorism, so we can keep pouring billions of dollars into military spending and ignore the fact that things are undoubtedly getting worse right here. Case in point: one of the very few expanding job markets for recent college grads is accounting. Why? Because as companies tank, more accountants and auditors are needed.

Things ain't no good at home and eventually Bush will need to deal with that.

I'm not that impressed with the Democratic candidates so far, either, to be honest. But I still think the economy could haunt Bush like a ghost because you can't keep a sour economy out of a presidential election. The cookie just doesn't crumble that way. If the economy is like this in January of 2004, voters are just going to be pissed off no matter what's going on in other countries.

Let's see. A guy named Osama bin Laden tried to kill me. And I'm sure he's trying to kill more New Yorkers [including me]. And yet our president is so stupid he doesn't know the difference between Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. So who do I trust with keeping my nation safe? Right now, not Dubya.

This may spoil his chances just a tad more.

Spurned Bush wife promises tell-all memoir about 'the family that is a political operation'
By Rupert Cornwell
18 April 2003

First for a reminder of this:
Neil Bush figured in the 1980s savings-and-loan scandals as a director of the Colorado-based Silverado, whose collapse cost American taxpayers $1bn (640m), and has long been a Bush black sheep. He reportedly left his wife for Maria Andrews, a former worker on his mother's staff.

Then this:
Sharon Bush's PR is being handled by a former tabloid editor, Lou Colasuonno, whose spiel mixes hype with menace. The author "witnessed the evolution of a dynasty", he gushes. "She believes, and is prepared to reveal, that the Bushes are far more ... calculating than has ever been seen before. She will show that the family orchestrates its public image from top to bottom. She will reveal that the family is in essence a political operation."

We may find out how strung out on coke and alcohol our esteemed Dubyah actually was.

Perhaps you could outline exactly what Bush has done, which presumably another President wouldn't have done, to keep NYC safe from terrorist attacks?

I'm sorry, but when I look for people out there who I feel could keep me safe, Bush is not the first guy that comes to mind.

One thing Bush has to do now and should do now is fix the Israel-Palestine issue next. If he got the Israelis out of Palestine, then that would make the Arabs happy, and then terrorist groups that want to gain power would be ignored, because these groups would sit there and try and tell the Arabs that America is bad...but if we do something for the Arabs by taking the Israelis out of their country, then the Arabs are going to just laugh in the faces of the terrorist groups, and they won't be able to gain support.

But Bush isn't smart enough to realize that. And therefore, the anti-American sentiment is going to continue to fester in the Middle East...and it's just gonna lead to a whole new mess of problems down the road-possibly another 9/11.

And so...sorry...I don't feel safe so long as Bush is running the country.

Sharky's right about the economy, too. Bush really needs to do something to get the economy going again. There's lots of places around here in my area that are closing-people are losing jobs right and left here in my area-and in a small town that wants to grow...that's not good.

And yet I am relieved that we have a government in place right now that didn't sit back after America was attacked. They went after the men responsible, and although they have not gotten bin Laden himself just yet, they have left his organization in shambles, and continue to hunt down terrorists around the world BEFORE they have a chance to attack us, rather than after they do. So who do I trust with keeping my nation, my city, and myself safe? Right now, without a shadow of a doubt, George W. Bush.
