Here I attempt:

1) Bush gives inspiration that *anyone* can be president, no matter what kind of mental handicap.
2) He proves that he can wage an effective propaganda war domestically, whereas people will willingly throw away their rights for any semblance of security.
3) He proves how easy it is to court the Christian Right just by having the title "Republican" next to your party affiliation, despite the fact that he outright ignores most of their pleas.
4) He knows how to simultaneously wage war on old political enemies while doing bipartisan business, as when he busted the labor union in the creation of the Homeland Security department for "security purposes."
5) He makes me feel very intelligent every time he opens his mouth.

Canada.

I will guarentee you that there is not other country in the world so ethnically diverse then Canada. The US would probably be very close to Canada but i've been to both counties and can see the differences. I'm not talking about big cities only, small farm comunties are very multicultural. Canada is not a melting pot, as the US is. Canadians are very open to what each persons culture is. If you ever ask a Canadian 'what they are' i'd say 75% of them would say Irish or German or Chinese.

In America they expect everyone to become AMERICAN. When you become a American citizen you loss a piece of your old way of life. Here in Canada I think we embrace it alot more. Hey we are bi-lingual are'nt we?

OK. I thought of one nice thing to say about Bush. He seems like a warmer, friendlier person than his father. Of course that's not saying much.

Melon,
I should have expected you to start up the misbehavior once Achtung Bubba left.

Typical.


Bonoman Or whomever;
I think you are missing the point. However, if you ever go into a public place in AMERICA, you will see the signs in every language. We do expect everyone to be American to an extent. If they don't like it, then they can Freaking LEAVE!!!

And we bend over backwards to accomodate folks from every nationality. You cannot call a big corporation in America without being asked by the tele-prompt if you would like to speak to an English or Spanish person before you ever talk to them. That is just one example, there are many.



Diamond;
A year ago I would have humored your ridiculous request in this thread. You should have expected to get this type of response here from all of the Bush-haters.

I would expect no less from Melon though. Melon professes to hating Bush no matter what he will do. Melon does not care he is going to hate him anyway.


You want to know how I feel about Clinton?

:arrow:He is on the radio telling folks how he never blamed Bush #41 for the deaths of U.S. serviceman in Somalia. Yet his tone and the demeanor in which he stated this were clear that he was blaming George H. W. Bush, who sent the troops there in december before Clinton took office. Hmmmmm, perhaps if Mr. Clinton would have permitted the use of APC's(armored Personnel carriers) then those men would have gotten out of there alive. Instead, he denied the use of the APC's and we lost 18 of our boys.


:arrow:Clinton-Gore now seem to have had a contingency plan for Al-Queda prior to the end of Clinton's term and Gore's loss to Bush. However, they did not go after Al Queda because they didn't want to seem as though they were trying to influence / promote the Gore campaign with war. Hmmm, so the lives of 3000 Americans were less important than the Gore campaign?


:arrow:Mr. Clinton claimed to have the best economy and unemployment rates in comparison to 12 years of Reagan-Bush. Yet the economy as we know it know was sinking like the Titanic before we knew who would win the Bush-McCain primaries. Notice how many of our young college graduates were making $7.00 per hour (about the same as unemployment pays out) under the Clinton administration.


:arrow:Clinton had Osama Bin Laden's head on a platter, offered to him by Sudan:

His response?

The man who is behind the following:
*1993 World Trade Center bombing
*1993 attempted assasination of President George H. W. Bush
*1996 Bombing of barracks at Khobar Towers, Saudi Arabia
*1998 U.S. Embasy Bombing
*2000 U.S.S. Cole Bombing
*2001 September 11

His response? :arrow: Monica Lewinsky


:arrowuring the Clinton legacy, we have images of 8 years of leading by example in deceit, fraud, free terrorism, adultery, not to mention a society run rampant in the increase in; gang violence, murder, increase drug trafficking, school shooting rampages, and pardoning all of our criminal relatives, friends, and contributors.

You know, this was supposed to be a *nice* thread, where we say *nice* things about people.

I'm not speaking to anyone, or any party affiliation, in particular here.

My most recent foreign ancestors came over from England in the 1700s; the rest came prior to that and even before that. TO be politically correct, I guess I would have to go around telling everyone I am Ango-Creek-Cherokee-American, and unfortunately some of my ancestors took part in the Confederacy, so I guess I should insert "Confederate" in there somewhere, even though I am ashamed of that treasonous episode. But "American" is so much shorter and easier [insert stereotype about lazy Americans here].

What about Hitler? He gets nothing but slack. Why doesn't someone list 5 nice things about Hitler?

No one? Anyone have the courage? H-E-L-L-O????????

Alright....here goes.....

1) He made it tragically uncool to wear a "Hitler mastacue". I think we can all say that is "good thing".

2)He had a goofy smile that alone makes people giggle at its insanity.

3)He had a remarkable gift for persuading millions of followers, albeit by means of torture and genocide.

4)....uh....let me think of another one.....

5)...hmmmm......I can't drag this out any longer. I'm stumped......

Anyone have any truly nice things to say about this guy?

Concerning the post about Hitler. What I meant to say was his funny mustache. I don't know why I misspelled that word. Okay, moving on....

5 nice things about George W. Bush:

1) He's charming in a Mayberry, Huckle-berry Hound sort of way.

2) He is friendly to his collegues and invites them to cookouts at the White House.

3) He apparently doesn't drink alcohol, which after doing so is an extremely difficult quality to maintain.

4) He remains physically fit, despite a job (that by definition) shouldn't allow him to stay healthy.

5) He isn't Hitler....at least not yet.

Another misprint. I meant to say that Hitler gets nothing but "flack", not "slack".

Someday I promise to proofread my posts before I post them. I swear.

that's great, it really is...but I believe I was just saying that
as a huge generalization
most don't even know the history or ANYTHING about canada let alone the rest of the world.

it's actually just part of the personality of the States and that's fine by me.It's been a trend after world war I and II which America just wanted to stay out of but got hauled into(and thank God!)
and this introvertness was accentuated after the vietnam war

its not a really bad thing...just part of the personality...much like people can can shy so can a country.

There is no need to keep bringing Hitler up in threads about George W Bush. If you want to bloody talk about him so much, someone start a thread and we can all post how vile we think he was.

Another thing, it is time we all accept that Bush is very much in the world's interest right now. Any president is. Any criticicm an outsider has is automatically taken as Anti American sentiments and written off. If a thread is started about the president, expect all types of replies. I think we all know well enough that sometimes the original topic is strayed from.

Lastly, any more personal sniping and bitching can be kept within emails and pms. If anyone doesn't understand this, please refer to Sicy's message at the top of the thread list.
