DUers I desperately need your help!
I am running a break out session for potential volunteers designed to grab up some last-minute volunteers for the last few remaining days before the Election and for our GOTV plan on Election Day.

It will be this Saturday.

As an icebreaker, I thought of spending the first few minutes on brainstorming with the group (we anticipate about 30 people) and asking the group members to help me compile a list of the Bush & Co. failures and/or misdeeds -- to get them to understand the importance of this election, to get them riled up, and to get them to see the big picture as to why some of us have been working so hard for so long to make changes and reinforce why we need them to volunteer.

What I need is a Master List of Bush Misdeeds and/or Failures, and, I've seen a few here on DU from folks who've cleverly and painstakingly compiled these lists. There was one recently -- a good one -- , for example, and I can't find it.

I did find this one: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

But, I need more so I can be comprehensive.

If anyone here at DU can recall certain threads, please, please, please post them here.

I thank you all very much in advance!! I'm on a strict time-schedule because I've got so many commitments (like a meeting in 45 minutes across town!!) so any help is greatly appreciated.

3. Oh, thank you so much -- just the kind of stuff I'm looking for
On my way out the door but I'll be back at noon (my time).

Thank you!

I'd love to have a handout for these folks -- I've got a base of volunteers already in action -- about 60!! They should have a copy, too. Thanks again.

8. To be fair, Bush did give us The Do-Not-Call List.
Then again, they probably used it as part of the NSA Wiretap program.

10. "bushits misdeeds"
Here is a good article from Common Dreams news center about the good qualified people who have left government due to pressure from the neo-cons in the whitehouse. It is about one year old, so I'm sure this list has grown quite a bit
