USA Today Should cowboy Bush ride into the sunset?
And the answer, from Neuwerth himself is YES.

"He led us astray by falsely claiming Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction that threatened us. After the "Mission Accomplished" boast in May 2003, he put our troops in new jeopardy by taunting terrorists from other countries with his "Bring 'em on!" challenge last July 2. His anything-goes-against-the-bad-guys attitude and his total lack of postwar planning helped prompt the ongoing prison-abuse embarrassments and brutal retaliations.
Why? Because he believes he can be re-elected as a tough-talking, self-proclaimed "War President."
Maybe Bush should take a cue from a fellow Texan, former president Lyndon Baines Johnson, who also had some cowboy characteristics.
LBJ, after mismanaging the Vietnam War that so bitterly divided the nation and the world, decided he owed it to his political party and to his country not to run for re-election. So, he turned tail and rode off into the sunset of his Texas ranch.
How do you say dj vu in Cowboyese?"

1. The answer should be "NO."
Leavenworth for 20 or so years would be better. He is guilty of war crimes.

2. Thats a Double WOW
More and more Businesses out side of the Military Ind Complex are waking up to the counterproductive results of Bushes Mismanagement
in running our Nation.

Men of Hate, get Hate. Bush has gone overBoard in making a lot of People around the World, Hate us. Not Jealousy, not Envy, but an Emotional HATE, the level at some of these people hate us so much, they commit suicide to hurt/kill us Americans.

A positive President results in Positive rewards. Kerry is the Best Hope towards this end.

3. Um no
Let's not root for things to overheat for Bush. If his numbers go to low the party regulars with throw him overboard like a can of flat beer. We don't want that. It would introduce a new variable into the campaign and make it harder for Kerry to argue that a change is needed.

Not so...
It will be hard to deny that Kerry was right that a change is needed, if a change is made.

And the campaign so far has been built on Chimpy's alleged "personality." It would probably be a GOP disaster.

Who replaces him? Frist? Cheney? DeLay? Murkowski? Jebbo?

16. LBJ History Revisionism
"LBJ, after mismanaging the Vietnam War that so bitterly divided the nation and the world, decided he owed it to his political party and to his country not to run for re-election."

Wrong! He checked out his stats within his own party and knew it was useless for him to run again because he would lose.

Bushco is running on fumes of patriotic ethonal.
