Normally, I wouldn't bother replying to Repugnican trolls like
yourself, but your cluelessness is so profound, I just can't help it.

Sir, the person you refer to as "our president" is neither; he
was appointed to the presidency by the Supreme Court, which chose to
legislate from the bench and vote their political agenda through,
without any respect and regard to the Constitution of the United
States and Florida state law. Now, I think the protests against this
illegal and immoral war, albeit regarded with so much contempt by you,
conveyed a clear message by the American people: George Bush is not
us, he does not represent the United States, and we will work together
to remove him and his friends from power.

Republican morals and integrity. Holy penguin on a
bicycle. Let's just look at some of the "accomplishments" of this
-Appointed more convicted criminals to administration positions than
any other presidency in US history.
-Changed US policy to allow convicted criminals to be awarded
-Set all-time record for number of administration appointees who
violated US law by not selling huge investments in corporations
bidding for government contracts.
-Signed more laws and executive orders amending the Constitution than
any president in US history.
-Removed more freedoms and civil liberties for Americans than any
other administration in US history.
-Removed more checks and balances, and have the least amount of
congressional oversight than any presidential administration in US
-Presidency is the most secretive and un-accountable of any in US
-During his first year in office, George Bush set the all-time record
for most days on vacation by any president in US history. After
taking the entire month of August off for vacation, presided over the
worst security failure in US history.
-Failed to permit, in the 18 months following the 911 attacks, any
public investigation into the biggest security failure in the
history of the United States.
-Presided over the biggest energy crises in US history, and refused to
intervene when corruption was revealed.
-Biggest life-time campaign contributor presided over one of the
largest corporate bankruptcy frauds in world history (Kenneth
Lay, former CEO of Enron Corporation).
-Presided over the biggest corporate stock market fraud of any market in
any country in the history of the world.
-After winning the sympathy of the entire world (on 9/12 French daily
_Le Mond_ had a front-page headline reading "We Are All Americans
Today!"), George Bush managed to alienate pretty much all of the
allies of the United States, including Turkey, whose military and
political ties with the United States have traditionally been very
strong. How can you piss of Turkey is beyond me.
In contrast, Clinton managed to win Greece on his side when
NATO was about to attack Iraq. I'll only say that the Greeks don't
particularly like the U.S., because of the latter's military ties to
Turkey. Clinton was the reason why many people abroad viewed the
U.S. very favorably throughout the nineties. Including
Palestinians. Clinton was greeted as a hero during his recent trip to
Kosovo. Now what were you saying about Chimpy again?
> Where were your criticisms when the Clinton administation launched

If you think that launching cruise missiles in Iraq is on par
with a full-scale invasion, you're delusional.

> Serbia without UN, or even Congress' approval?
Serbia was attacked by NATO (that's the allies of the United
States that His Imperial Chimpiness pissed off, in case you don't
know). Besides, there was a MASS GENOCIDE going on at about the same
time. In contrast, when Saddam was "gassing his own people" in 1988,
the Ray-gun administration covered it up. I'm sorry: was there a point
that you wished to make?

Oh no! The Air Force made a mistake during one of their
missions. Clearly, that condemns the entire Serbian operation.

A republican talking about hypocrisy. Can you say: Bill
Bennett and Rush Limbaugh? I knew you could.

Care to provide some evidence to the above statement? Seems to
me that the report of Hans Blix and Mohamed el-Baradei claimed quite

These are the facts: 1) George W. Bush is a liar. 2) Dick
Cheney is a liar 3) Colin Powell is a liar. 4) Donald Rumsfeld is a
liar. 5) Condoleezza Rice is a liar. These people repeatedly asserted
that a attack with WMD by Iraq was imminent, even though every single
one of their statements regarding the issue was thoroughly debunked
MONTHS before the actual invasion. Now, I don't care how Karl Rove and
company started spinning the war after it became clear that THERE ARE
NO FUCKING WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION.

No, they are not forgotten or ignored. This is not, however,
a reason to go to war. Do you understand this?

The routine and systematic torture happened under the
administrations of Ronald Reagan (dipshit) and George Bush
senior. They are the ones who ignored it, they are the ones who sold
weapons to Saddam in the 1980s. Or are you forgetting that Donald
Rumfilled was meeting with Saddam to negotiate these purchases?

Hello, Earth to Nimrod: The fucking Republican party was in
charge in 1980-1988, and they sold Saddam the weapons of mass
destruction. Really, is there any part of this that I'm not
enunciating properly enough for your thick, wooden, Republican head to

You seem to forget that United States and allies
counterattacked and liberated Kuwait following that invasion.

Sadly, that was Poppy Bush's doing; or shall we blame
Clinton's penis instead?

Apocryphal stories made up by Kurdish refugees. Thoroughly

Um, what? Iraq was not under the Shariat law, moron. You are
thinking of Arabic countries with Muslim government. Iraq had a
secular government. You really are fucking clueless.

Dude, this guy is a business partner of the bin Ladens. He is
only loyal to his business interests. He is not loyal to the people of
the United States, the Constitution of the United States, or any other
moral code and principles. It's time for you to get off the turnip
truck and get on the clue bus.

Which is precisely what Clinton did. Don't forget that it was
that outgoing Clinton administration whose officials briefed
Condoleeza Rice on the impending threat from Al Qaeda. The Bush
administration did not act on that information until 9/10/2001.

Iraq did not possess weapons of mass destruction, nor did it
actively support any terrorist groups at the time it was attacked. AND

Well, the Clinton administration did it. The Bush

Well, I think it's about time that we recall President Al Gore,
