6. lol no

I was just curious as to why people voted for him in the first place. Jeb is considering running. I don't know why though. No one wants another "President Bush"

3. My final Republican vote ever...

...was in the 2000 GOP primary, when I voted for McCain instead of Bush. Not that it did a lot of good, but there you go.

9. Maybe the media can get Americans to vote for the next President by asking: "Who would you..

most like to shoot a gun with while drinkin' beers?"

7. Well, I am a blonde, but I am not dumb.

I didn't vote for him. I voted for Gore, Kerry and then Obama. I am a diehard Democrat.

14. I didn't vote for him, but in 2000, I was politically illiterate enough to find him likeable.

I was like 20 years old. I was out of state and not registered to vote in the state where I went to college. So I didn't vote that time. I watched the debates a little and thought he and Gore were a lot alike. I thought either one would've made a decent President, at the time. But I was leaning towards Bush because I thought we needed a reset from the Clinton sex scandal and thus Gore, being VP, had too many ties to the whole thing by association (at least that was my thinking at the time, not my thinking now, at all, of course).

I was painfully wrong about all of the above and would gladly go back in time and punch myself in the nuts for being so willfully uninformed and unperceptive.

By the time 2004 rolled around, I had become a lot more politically aware, I had already figured out that Iraq was a scam and thus, I cast my first Presidential vote for John Kerry. I'll give George Bush a lot of credit for one thing. He and his administration turned me into a Democrat.

17. I have a friend who has a T-shirt that says "George Bush, Kickin it Old School" . . .

. . . with him on a set of turntables.

Really.

When he lived in the U.S., I asked him if he had a fireplace and told him to throw that shirt in it.

He frequently argued with me that Saddam DID have WMDs.

He's also a creationist.

In other words, he refutes facts to believe stories.

This was a guy who scored high marks in high school and on national chemistry exams.

I don't know when he got ensnared in the teagagger pond of manure, but I'm guessing it also has to do with the fact that he's a "Born Again"er.
