    Watching last night's address, I found myself agreeing with most of what Bush said. I believe that President Bush, like Harry Truman before him, may ultimately be vindicated by history. With the accomplishments and policies he outlined, Bush showed how he's done more good for our country than Bill Clinton. While Clinton was a more popular figure, he didn't have such difficult events as 9/11 and recession to deal with as president, problems which could have been avoided if Clinton had better foresight. The liberal media might attempt to paint this address as the insignificant farewell of a lame duck president, but that just might show how out of touch the media is with reality.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Clinton will be remembered for his sleazy sex scandals and impeachment.

    Bush will be remembered for 9/11, half hearted retaliation against the Taliban in Afghanistan, and the invasion of Iraq based upon fabricated evidence.

    what have you done to make this country, or better yet the people around you, better/safer/stronger?

    Seriously... like, you can debate all day online. What really matters though, is who you are... and what you do.

    If you've got some different ideas than me... whatever. I mean... as long as you're not one of those "i hate America" turds, then its all gravy.

    Again, seriously though... when is the last time that "you" fought for something... for anything?

    Food for thought, right?

    this is a forum for discussion of these sorts of things, so that's what we do.
    i ate your food for thought, got indigestion, and the result was fields of wind.

    as for the sotuaddress, not an original thought in the entire hour. the country is ready to move on. for those of you who aren't, get ready, because we are moving on without you.

    Hey reverend... I think I remember you from about 5 years ago???? Maybe... anyway... I haven't posted until tonight for about 4-5 years. Man... I think i remember you being well... exactly like you responded. Cool.

    Just kidding reverend... don't get all computer crazy on me.

    But reallly though... I understand the "forum for discussion" thing. I just discussed what I thought, was an interesting proposition. It was just a question rev... nothing to get all worked up over.

    Sorry about the gas dude.

    I was amazed at the depths Bush is willing to go to to protect a legacy by lying and shifting blame at a time when there are real problems in the nation.

    He sure wanted a lot of 'trust' for someone who the nation and world stopped trusting a long time ago. I don't think history will be kind to Bush, even if Iraq becomes a democratic state in 15 years. Too many mistakes, and too much secrecy.

    So you can't produce one instance of lying or shifting blame in Bush's speech?

    Celtic fan... what exactly is it that you do?? I mean... to have such strong opinions... there must be something behind it, no?

    Is this irrelevant?? Am I... out of touch here??
