I believe that President George W. Bush is the worst, most inept person to ever occupy the White House. Since he stole the presidency, America has been going downhill.
Mr. Bush's so-called foreign policy has angered most of our allies around the world. He has created havoc between Israel and the Palestinians, put America on a war path with North Korea and now he has plunged us into an unnecessary war in Iraq, which is killing our brave service people and many innocent Iraqi men, women and children.
I support our service people and pray every day for their protection, but I vehemently oppose this war. I believe true patriots are those who support and pray for our troops while having the courage to oppose this barbaric Bush war.
After inheriting a strong Clinton economy with a $5 trillion surplus, Mr. Bush has destroyed the economy by giving his wealthy corporate friends huge tax breaks which erased the $5 trillion surplus and created a $350 billion deficit.
Mr. Bush's inept economic policies have cost tens of thousands of Americans their jobs. Statistics show that between 1988 and 1992 during George H.W. Bush's administration, the United States had a net loss of jobs ...
Well, "like father, like son" really applies to the Bushes. Since 2001, we also have had a net loss of jobs. This means that if Mr. Bush's economic policies had been in place since 1776, the United States would be the poorest nation on Earth.
I am ashamed that George W. Bush occupies America's great White House, and I can hardly wait to see him leave in January, 2005.
