Even though I have been miffed at some of the things Bush has done recently, I would have to say:

78) Restored decency to the Presidency the very moment his foot hit the carpet in the Oval Office.

TOP OF YOUR LIST SHOULD BE

#1. Helped KILL the first Ammendment

From Drudge just now...

Bush Will Sign Campaign Finance Bill Mon Mar 25,10:19 AM ET SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (Reuters) -

President Bush (news - web sites) said on Sunday he would sign landmark campaign finance reform legislation with only a slight hesitation, reflecting his ongoing concerns about the measure.

"I won't hesitate" signing it, Bush said at a joint news conference with Salvadoran President Francisco Flores as the president wrapped up a four-day trip to Latin America. "It will probably take about three seconds to get to the W, I may hesitate on the period, and then rip through the Bush." The legislation to reduce the influence of money in politics won final congressional approval last week, and Bush has pledged to sign it soon. The bill would ban unlimited contributions known as "soft money" to national political parties, limit such donations to state and local parties and restrict broadcast ads by outside groups shortly before elections.

I'm a member of the NRA, amongst several other gorups who supported this SHMUCK and who will now suffer for it.

Never again will I vote for a RINO.

81) Has a real marriage with the lovely First Lady, Laura Bush.

I expected more from the President on this issue, like, say, fulfilling his campaign promise not to sign it unless his terms were met. On top of that, he's currently meeting with the money-grubbing Latin American leaders, all of whom are supporting the UN Global Tax proposals.

AND, the Congress is on Easter Break, right? Where's the recess appointments?

Oh yeah, and I just heard on CBS news that the White House is curretly pressing Israel to lift Yasser Arafat's travel limitations...

Just what the hell is going on in our White House right now??????

Most of these are relatively minor executive actions. His really big stuff, with the exception of the tax cut, has been all liberal. And a tax cut without concurrent spending cuts is no bargain since we just pay for the expanding government through borrowing, higher interest rates, etc.

Here's a list:

(1) Education Bill that greatly expands the scope of federal intervention and funding (enabling even greater liberal indoctrination at the earliest ages).;

(2) Budget that increases the size of government greater than the rate of inflation, even factoring out increased defense spending;

(3) Steel tariffs of 30 percent which lower the standard of living, depress the economy and ruin our credibility as a global trade partner;

(4) Probable signing of an amnesty for illegal aliens;

(5) Probable signing of Campaign Finance Reform.

In terms of meaningfulness, the list of 77 pales in comparison with this list of 5.

If the Libertarian candidates get enough votes in this fall's congressional elections, maybe that will get the attention of politicians who want to woo conservative votes. Losing control of the House and having to suffer a term under Gephardt is just the lesson they need. An voting Libertarian or for the Constitutional party candidates is important. The Republicans should have their faces rubbed in why they lost control of the House. Otherwise some of the intellectually incompetent political whores from New England might think they need to move farther left.

I agree if you are referring to BJs in the oval office etal, but I don't think signing the repeal of the first amendment or engineering the beginnings of the state takeover of churches to be "decent" things.

(Bush)engineering the beginnings of the state takeover of churches to be "decent" things.

Thomas Jefferson started that. He belonged to a church which lived off tax money you know. He wanted everyone in the country to adopt his religion too. He was around when Congress had the gall to authorize the printing of Bibles and he even attended a 4 hour church service at the Treasury Department while he was President. Evil guy. Wanted a theocracy in America he did.

Really very dumb idea:"Losing control of the House and having to suffer a term under Gephardt is just the lesson they need." This is the insane technique that got us Bill Clinton for 8 destructive years.

And these are a problem because?

It is telling that they produce a one-sided laundry list of issues without explaining why the Bush administration did these things. Of course if your position can't stand up to scrutiny, about the only way to present it in a positive light is to suppress the other side.

I do really wish they'd get over Iran-Contra. Reagan and the "figures" involved were right and the Lefties were wrong. Again. So what else is new.

Hate to say I told you so, but ...

Sounds like typical republican to me. Do enough small stuff that is considered a bit conservative with one hand, to please most of the voters, while pushing us hard with the other hand in sync with the democrats right into a tyrannical, socialist state.

Alan Keyes looks better and better all the time. The only reason he couldn't win was because everyone was saying he couldn't win. It had little to do with reality. If all the real conservatives who supported Bush had worked to get Alan elected I daresay things would be a little different. Change isn't easy folks, we're going to have to work at it if we don't want the two wings of the same bird of prey beating us into submission, slowly on the one side and rapidly on the other.

I campaigned HARD for Dr. Keyes in New Hampshire, many a cold day holding one of his signs.

I'll tell you what was the most chilling on those days leading up to the Primary.

It was talking to the bow tie and oxford wearing Bush supporters who gaped at me in horror when I defended the need for a SECOND AMMENDMENT.

Think we're sorry this afternoon ?

Just wait until Dianne Feinstein submits a Bill to repeal the NEXT Ammendment.

I can hear Bush now, "Over My dead body will they infringe upon Your Right to own a gun!"

Sure ...

That lost him some votes of course but the real reason he didn't and doesn't get any traction is his personality. Many conservatives don't like or trust him.

As what?

The only reason he couldn't win was because everyone was saying he couldn't win.

It couldn't have had anything to do with the fact that he had NO experience, could it?

If all the real conservatives who supported Bush had worked to get Alan elected I daresay things would be a little different.

But they didn't, did they? Does that make them NOT real conservatives because they didn't vote for Keyes?

Keyes should be happy he has a show on TV -- for now.

So you are lumping yourself into the camp of folks who don't MIND having your God given right to free speech infringed upon ?

Or are you that confident that our "side" is winning and that the Bill of Rights is no longer "needed".

Do you not see that your lock-step defense of one man is no better than that of Carville and the other Clinton synchophants ?

If expressing my intense displeasure of having been duped AGAIN is "Out of Control" than I'd rather be that than what YOU are ....

Controlled.

Even the few items in this list which appear to be bad are probably just due to the liberal penchant for twisting the spin. As in, stopping a very bad program which indoctrinates young people into 'alternative lifestyles' and the liberals spin it into 'Bush cancels millions in education'.

Exactly. Such as the cut in funding for doctors to study advanced pediatric care. Sounds bad but when you think about it, doctors do have the money to pay for it themselves. And "advanced" care could mean anything. Ten to one there is a homosexual, anti-gun or race based agenda in there somewhere.

Gimme a break. All of you who are getting wimpy over supporting W are spoiled brats. He can't do EVERYTHING exactly as we wanted it, and to say that he is "KILLING" the first amendment is absurd, and you know it. Pick your battles. This battle (CFR) is not worth fighting over and will end up being better for us anyway.

Except that most of it is just show. When Bush signs the CFR, he signs the end to his presidency. He may become the only sitting president in many, many years to actually lose his own party's primary. I for one will NOT vote for him if he signs CFR or allows it to become law.
