As I live in England most of our news and culture is basically dominated by America but we only ever here bad things about you really.

So I was just wondering as you voted Bush in numerous times to the white house and in other high ranking political jobs, is he really the best America has to offer?

I know we have a boring, tight-fisted Scot ever running our country and I am ashamed of that fact.

He shouldn't have actually won the first time. Al Gore should have won. It was rigged.

definitely not the best there is to be offered, but what is the difference between a douche and a turd really?

we only voted him in once. although in my opinion, he is far better than that piece of **** Al Gore. Bush hasn't done that great of a job, but it seems like at least half the people that don't like him are just jumping on the anti-Bush bandwagon.

No, Bush is an idiot and it is debatable that the first time he was elected was by mistake (apparently Florida had a bunch of votes that were not counted which would have been enough to swing the results) and I believe that by popular votes he lost the last election as well but that electoral BS is killer.

Are you sure your news and stuff is dominated by America? That is really disheartening, here in Canada our news is dominated by American culture, and I had thought that Europe would be more concerned with more important things than the celebrity life of the latest 15 minutes of fame fad over here.

Saying George Bush is the best thing America has to offer would be like saying Hot Space is the best thing Queen has to offer. So, no.

Just out of curiosity, why do you think he'd be a good president? I really don't know anything about him honestly, except that he's an atheist and was featured in South Park, where he had sex with Mr/Mrs Garrison numerous times.

The mass media here is very liberal as a whole. Prime example is that the majority Democrat Congress has extremely low ratings, in fact lowest in history, but all you hear on the news is how low the President's ratings are.

Whether or not you believe the election was rigged, he has still served two terms in office. He was elected twice, despite what the popular vote may have been. The electoral college elects the president, not the people.

North mexico is being dominated by american culture (i mean....people here even say LOL) and that SUCKS.
I really like Bush, he is like the best comedian. Ever.

Oh....he is president....


Bad joke, sorry.

Look up what happened in Florida.

I never voted for bush, infact most people didn't. I lost interest in politics after bushes second term so I'm not entirely sure how that one went down, but I know for a fact that Bush lost the popular vote in his first campain...this is actualy the first year I'll be able to vote in a presidential election and I can say with some certainty that I won't be voting for Bush

I think he's a very smart rational man. He's openminded but not in the way that he accepts every idea thrown in his way, he just rationalizes away the stupid.

I can totally appreciate that, and I feel that that is something a lot of politicians lack, or should need, that rationalism, but there's something about atheists that I dont like. I'm sure that there are plenty of atheists around that arent like this, but I feel that a lot of them feel like they're standing above people that do believe in God, and if there's something I can't stand, is the filth that religious people get thrown at them purely for their beliefs that shape their inspiration and motivation. Ofcourse there's also plenty of christians that I have my problems with (the same thing about atheists, only the other way around, meaning christians that say **** about non-believers), but that's a whole other story.

No Al Gore beat him, and was screwed by the electoral college and the fact that the determining state so happened to be the one Bush's brother governed.

But it's okay. after 8 years of humiliation, IN SIX MONTHS GEORGE BUSH WILL NO LONGER BE PRESIDENT OF THIS NATION!!

I agree completely, if only he could be a U.S. president. I've heard interviews with him where it seemed like he had kind of a grandiose opinion of his theories, but for the most part he does seem willing to hear and consider what other people have to say. He doesn't strike me as the kind of person that would get emotion involved with politics, that is to say he seems like the kind of person that would weigh the pros and cons of a certain action and pick the better of the two options without letting his ego interfere with his thought process too much

I'm sure whenever he's "grandiose" is because he knows he's right and has surely had alot of arguments with people who are... not very bright.

he has some of the lowest approval ratings ever. He's constantly made fun of by his own countrymen, and is just generally hated. No, he is not the best our country has to offer, he is, in fact, quite far from it. People however don't seem to care as much if they have someone who isn't fit to run a country running in office, and therefore just vote their regular party and move on with their life. Also, the percentage of people who vote is appalling too, maybe 40% tops of the eligible voting population voted last presidential election. So, in conclusion, no, he is generally hated, and is not fit at all to run this country.
