*'s 3 biggest failures?
I'm doing a speech on why * is such a failure and would like some opinions on what you feel are his biggest failures and why. Thanks.

3. The environment, Iraq, and jobs.
On the environment, Bush has been horrible from CO2 emissions, letting loggers into our national forests, trying to drill in our parks, rolling back air and water standards, and so forth.

Iraq annihilated American credibility around the world, and got us in a quagmire where we are spending BILLIONS there that can be spent here. A fraction of the $$$ spent in Iraq, for instance, could have provided universal college tuition.

Looting the treasury for the rich hasn't helped working people, contrary to the Bush administration's projections.

8. I think it's Iraq
From the start, when Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, and Colin Powell warned the world of Saddam Hussein's massive stockpiles of weapons, to now, with almost 700 dead and thousands more injured, Iraq is indeed a quagmire with no relief in site. Bush is stubbornly sticking to the nation-building script (which candidate Bush opposed in the 2000 presidential debates), no matter how many lives, American, coalition, or Iraqi, are lost. And it's very clear that many Iraqi citizens do not want us there, as occupiers. "I wouldn't be happy if I were occupied..." Bush said last week.

The worst part is, the death toll will continue to rise. I'm skeptical that we'll be turning over anything to Iraqi control at the end of June.

10. LOL
Naming his successes would be harder. I can't think of a single one.

Failures:
1) Iraq
2) Deficits
3) Jobs

As far as the environment, he's succeeded well at what he wanted to do. Poor mother Earth.

14. Certainly a much shorter list.
Like the shortest book ever written.

11. Being born, being born, being born.
Not necessarily in that order.

12. Suggestions on *'s 3 biggest successes:
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 05:08 PM by Paradise
'Duplicity', 'Deceit', 'Treachery'.

Forgive me but I find the scope of his failures consummate (pejorative), comprehensive, and stupefying!

Okay, okay:
Iraq Obsession (Pre & Post 9/11)
Iraq Invasion
Iraq Quagmire

13. Three? Why didn't you make it easy and ask for 30?
or three hundred?

But I guess it would be his domestic leadership, his international leadership and for balance his administrative skills.
