    what I don't get (and i'm not specifically targetting your post simple10) is how whenever people criticize Bush, you always have another group of people criticizing Clinton. As if Clinton's mistakes and flaws somehow validates Bush's? :confused:

    no no no. i just find it funny that people villify Bush when he's really no worse (and in some cases not as bad) as some of the other leaders we've had. i think they've all been inadequate. i just find the Bush-bashing (*snicker*) is often biased.

    *edit* and the same actors/actresses that go public with hating Bush will invite Clinton to parties. it's just pretty fucked up.

    yeah, Democrat or Republican, all American leaders are pretty fucked up ;)
  12. This "Michael Moore" had best keep silence against my cabinet, or Planet Houston will see my wrath.

    meh, i heard that some of the evidence and scenes in Bowling for Columbine weren't as factual as he made us believe. Doesn't that discount his flick as a documentary?

    In my opinion Bill Clinton was a much better president than George Bush.

    Yes, Clinton made mistakes in his personal life, and of course he made some in office too. Bush however, is making monumental mistakes and handling this entire situation very badly.

    I miss Bill Clinton. Bush's attempts at "diplomacy" were just pathetic.

    I personally think if bush spent more time sexually harrasing his interns like clinton did then he wouldnt even have time to wage wars. hell maybe if he just spent more time just pleasing miss bush or someone elses bush then there would no wars.
    Hell i think we should all start trying to please other peoples bushes it would end all wars i am going to start it off
    WHo is with me??????????

    Better as in dropping more bombs on Iraq then Bush Sr. did in Gulf War 1 to try and take attention away from his "cigar" incident?

    Or by dropping more bombs then any peace time president before him (in Somalia, Iraq, The Sudan and Afghanistan)?

    Don't get me wrong. I think Bush Jr's an idiot. But Clinton isn't far behind.

    i agree with silver1.

    the Clinton administration was the main reason the UN left Rwanda resulting in over 800,000 deaths.

    People were easy to give Willy a break on his wrong doings because hey, who had time to care about his shortcomings when they were busy driving their new SUVs to the beach house because the economy was booming bigtime.

    Times are a little tougher now. Some of Mom and Dads retirement funds are worthless. People are losing jobs left, right and center. Things aren't so peachy. It's a lot easier to look at the president with a VERY fine tooth comb.

    "Jerry. When the people are out of work you know who the first person they come after is?........ El Presidenté".
    - Kraemer

    The likes of Michael Moore and Bill Maher like to "stick it to the man".......... when "the man" goes against their political view. But when Billy was droppin' bombs on Iraq, the only stuff that I remember coming out of Bill Maher had "Lewinsky" in the sentence.

    But shouldn't this be more of a reason for the masses to encourage their "elected" officials to focus more on the situation at home instead of mortgaging the nation to topple a foreign government?

    I don't think people realize how much this is going to cost the US even after the actual war. I really hope the UN tells the US to fuck right off when the US goes hat in hand to the UN for money to help rebuild Iraq.

    I don't know if Bill Maher said anything critical of Clinton during the Gulf War (I'm not even sure if he had a talk show back then) but what about the comments he made after Sept 11 that eventually got him fired?
    He said something to the effect of "We've been the cowards, attacking a country by launching cruise missiles from thousands of miles away"
    Though he doesn't mention it specifically, it sounds like they were aimed at what Clinton did during the Gulf war

    Oh for sure. I don't support this war. I just don't think villifiying Bush while praising Clinton is a good argument.
