    It seems that all of the non-disasters of the last 8 years is being summed up in 30 minutes.

    nope, it took only 13 minutes.

    What the hell was that? Can anyone be more uninspiring if they tried? Did anyone actually believe that Iraq and Afghanistan are functioning democracies? Blarrrrrrrrrrghhhh!

    Lance the boil! Get the pus out!

    I thought it was a nice speech. I was listening to the radio, so I only had audio. He's come a long way and delivered it quite well.

    He's not a total failure, he would make a good poster-child for birth control or abortion.

    Is there a point to this? Or do people just want to spew hate?

    After these 8 years, don't you think we should be allowed to vent a bit? Just a little, maybe?

    The rest of us still alive can indeed get up and say "we never really needed you W".

    Yes, hate is ok, as long as it's pointed in the right direction. :rolleyes:

    So, you don't think an emotional reaction toward those who govern us is justified. I'll remember that over the next 8 years :wink:.

    Not that emotional, no.
    Please do. You'll never hear me talking that way about a President of the US.

    Perhaps that how we ended up with someone like Bush - apathy.

    I think the reason why we got him is because far too many people watch headline news, and don't seek good news. As a result, all they got was spoon fed 'they hate freedom' headlines. All they get is information at the surface.

    At least this makes arguments like "well if Bush is not liked, then where are the complaining people?" more difficult to use.

    In the US, there IS no "good" news unless you can find some relatively unbiased cable-carried sources, since all broadcast news is filtered through the same corporate structures that build and maintain the military-industrial complex. You either get propaganda (major networks) or out-and-out right-wing indoctrination (FOX), with little else available. Try watching broadcast-only channels for a couple of weeks, and see if you can resist tearing your hair out when comparing what you see to international sources on the Internet.

    It seems even the revisionists don't have all that much stomach to defend this incompetent sidekick to special interests that has managed to mismanage and squander the burgeoning assets the nation was harvesting from increasing productivity at the outset of his term.

    Cheney and Bush have been a total embarrassment with their manipulations and attempts to govern through deceit and distraction and all they have managed to do is bring unwise foreign adventure and economic ruin from unregulated greed that now sits on the shoulders of all those they were nominally supposed to shepherd.

    Only 4 more days and that's been 8 years too long as it is as far as I'm concerned.

    What I don't understand is how his approval rating is as high as 27%.
