Former President Bush
« on: January 26, 2009, 11:38:32 pm »

Since the inauguration ceremonies and celebrations have ended, I would like to thank our former President, George Bush.

Whatever your views, I hope you will join me in wishing him well, and thank him for the incredible feat of keeping us safe from a determined enemy for seven long dangerous years.

I hope the world will eventually recognize his contributions to our country--and to the world.

The word on the street always seemed to be that he was horrible but as soon as Obama was elected, I started reading a few things about how he actually did do a pretty decent job at a lot of things...I don't care to elaborate.  I'm not highly political in any way.

Well, you're right, but the left will NEVER admit it.  Who has given more funding to Africa than any man in history?  George Bush.  But you never heard that in the news did you?

I do like what Obama is pushing: being held accountable and making his actions highly public.  Check out the new site!  A weekly online address from him!  That's very cool.

There are a few countries & a big part of africa that recognise him but i think the biggest win of Iraq is for the US.

Is political discussion and debate now permitted on this forum?

Because this thread surely tempts fate and invites response that would certainly be considered political.
So, rather than rant on, I will be respectful of Interact (for the time-being) and merely state that I have strong opinions on this matter.

That was my point in posting this thread.  I couldn't believe that someone posted one about about Obama, and said it "wasn't political", but I knew as soon as I posted the same thing about Bush, it would suddenly become not worthy for the boards.  I was right.

I think you're dismissing the intent of my original post, which was simply to welcome the new President, and to appeal to all for what is called "civil discourse".

What has passed for "politics" in the last decade has not been "polite" or "civil" discourse.  We need to change that.

I don't think it ever is, No matter who is in office, And this goes back to the beginning of this country.

It is said that debate is good for the country, to get all opinions and options on the table.

I agree JimH.  At the inauguration rappers who were part of the celebration (as in, up on the stage) went off about the N***** President, and down with the white people.  The crowd BOOOed Bush when he took the stage.  The hate from the left is out of control.  By the way, NBC News thought it was so great they showed clips of it--not in a negative way.

None of that happened when Clinton left office.

Hate knows no boundaries, believe me.
