Doesn't that depend on the alternative?

As previously noted, I'm unenthusiastic about both candidates. I'll hold my nose when I go into the booth and vote, and I have not yet decided who will get that vote.

It is true that there are some things Mr. Bush might have done better. It is also true that his opponent is less than an ideal candidate.

Sometimes I wish we had an option to reject all of the candidates and request a new slate.

You're a generous man, Bill

"Some things Mr. Bush might have done better"???

Ladies and gents! We have a new leader in the understatement of the year competition.

Yeah, where is that selection?


Of course, the cost would be horrendous to start over. And I guess that would mean an automatic year extension for everyone in office. Rats, no solution there either.

Is this a paid political ad? You're starting to sound like a broken record.

Danny Boy,

You would have promoted 2922 day failed COO Gore to CEO in 2000, but now want to punish CEO Dubya, for his first 233 days on the job with partial staff because of Democratic stonewalling "advise & consent" approvals of Bush staff members.

The 2922 days of Failed Defense Policies under "CEO/Skipper" Bubba Bill and his "COO/XO" Gore fostered 9/11? The terrorists got away with it five times on Bubba's watch, and thought they would go for a sixth.

Review the record of want "Bubba business" was executed during 1993 through 2001, in the Clinton-Gore Corporation.

1993 World Trade Centre bombing;
1995 Bombing of U.S. Military in Saudi Arabia;
1996 Khobar towers bombing of U.S. G.I.?s;
1998 US Embassy bombing in Africa;
2000 USS Cole bombing.

2922 days of Clinton-Gore divided by 233 days of Dubya = 12.5 times more failed planning blame than for Dubya.

So lets see what Bush hasn't done...
1)He hasn't allowed another terrorist strike on US territory.
2) He hasn't allowed a recession caused by 9/11 and the end of the internet boom to sink the US into a depression.
3)He hasn't allowed the US to be muzzled and leashed by a group of nations who do not favor US interests.

I dunno, he seems to have done a successful job to me. Maybe not the best, bt definitely leading us in the right direction.
