If it could be worse, I don't want to think about it

A TID poll asked "Is it possible that George W. Bush could have conceivably done any worse as president or done any more damage to this country and the world than he already has and continues to do?"

Fifty-three percent of respondents thought that, out of the entire universe of possible actions and consequences, Bush couldn't have been more destructive, incompetent, wrong-headed, and disasterous, while a surprising 47% felt that Bush actually has the capacity and lack of character to actually do even more damage than he's already accomplished.

The scary part is that they may be true. Let's hope the gown-ups are able to at least prevent him from doing anything else before he's unceremoniously bounced out of the White House.

In light of the fact that only about 2 out of 10 Americans still think Bush is getting it right in Iraq (I wish I knew who they were. I'd sell them some oceanfront property in Nebraska) the new poll asks your considered opinion on a hypothetical election matchup.

You liberals are amazing. What an incredible bunch of crap!

Is Bush a great President, unlikely. However, I shudder to think of how Gore might have handled 9-11 - and the economy afterwards.

What is it about the man that makes you hate him so much - the Florida-thing in 2000?

Come on - get over it. Be an American!

What, be an ignorant, mean-spirited war-monger?

No thanks.

And Gore would have done much, much better than this unelected clown.

Face it, it would be hard to do worse.

Gore? The inventor of the internet? Anyone silly enough to make that claim, well...

Come on honcho, at least pretend to have a rational thought.

Anon above.

I think I speak for all rational people (and honcho) when I say that you're unfortunately an uninformed idiot if you still believe that Al Gore either said he "invented the internet" or that he actually thought he did.

I can't believe anyone is still trying to trot out that long ago disproved claim.

Amazing that anyone is STILL either that clueless or that intellectually lazy.

CLICK HERE and consider yourself no longer ignorant.

It's one of hundreds of sources which easily prove that old line of sh*t to be nothing but ... well... sh*t.

Anonymous poster proves just one of the reasons why I think the last six years could have been much worse, and voted 'yes' in the poll. With a cadre of morons like anonymous poster calling for carte blanche war powers for Bush, and a Republican Congress that placed party loyalty ahead of the duty of checks and balances, the last six years could have been much, much worse.

The ease with which habeas corpus was stripped away by Congress, on Bush's request, is proof positive that he could have asked for any power -- foreign or domestic -- in the name of fighting terrorism and they would have delivered it. The uncritical examination of Bush's fixed intelligence by both Democrats and Republicans in the lead up to the Iraq war also proves that any and all Middle Eastern countries, and perhaps any country at on the globe, could have been the next battle field in a never-ending war.

That being said, Bush's presidency ranks among the worst in history, we've made it this far without any official declaration of martial law or passage of PATRIOT ACT II or a new Sedition Act.

We can thank our anonymous friend for the gross outrages that were carried out by the Bush/Congressional Republican cabal, and we can thank the November election and all the people who worked their asses off to win it for the fact that people like anonymous no longer hold the majority in Congress.

Dope, can't you read? In your own link provided above, Gore is quoted as saying...


He did not say, I took the initiative in SUPPORTING the internet. He did not say, 'I SUPPORTED legislation that assisted in the internet." He said,


Your link, not mine. Dis you not read it before posting it?

"Come on - get over it. Be an American!"

Wow that is a great statement. Being an American means to blindly accept whatever crap the government and media throws at us??? If memory serves me correctly, the very founding of this country was because government no longer sufficiently represented the people and it was the common folks that had to stand up for it.

Has that much changed in 200 years? Have we really gotten to the point where we are puppets of the government again? I find this way of thinking gutless. You want to talk about patriotic? Standing up for what you beleive in, thats patriotic. Or maybe standing up to defend the right of your fellow American/human. Possibly doing whats right over doing whats best for yourself. Those are values that we should care about as Americans. Not who has the coolest cell phone, what movie star is screwing some other movie star, not the welfare of the wealthy over the welfare of the poor.

Anonymous, people like you make me sick.

Preach it, brother. Preach it.

robbie, relax a little.

"Be an American" only means that we need to be an 'American' first - a an affiliate of your party (whichever party that might be), second.

I read TID - the posts and the comments - and it is clear that the affiliation for most people here is to the Democrat party first (actually, the extreme left wing of the party) and to the greater benefit of America, in a distant second.

Is that you Mowen?

That is without a doubt, the biggest bunch of horsesh*t that's been left here for a long time. And that is REALLY saying something.

You really need to "get over it" and deal with your anger problems. The Democratic party isn't your enemy. Nor are Democrats some sort of zombie hoard who march lockstep.

It's hilarious to hear this paranoia from a person who belongs to a party which is VASTLY more zombie like and which has marched lockstep behind their leaders as they took the country into the ditch!

Only now are a few popping up to reveal that, hey, I know all this stuff is dead wrong, but I had to go along with the party and the president.

And you think Dems put party first?

What a hoot!

Well, Yeah, his original order for a sneak land assault into Iraq via Ecuador could have wasted a bunch of gas and probably caused unnecessary combat with the indigenous Yacqui coca ranchers.
