Did you loathe and detest the Bush administration? If so, you'd probably say its ideas were horrible and their execution worse. Did you not loathe and detest the Bush administration? In that case, you might say its ideas were pretty good—only the execution often left something to be desired.

Romney needs to distance himself from both Bush and Obama. He can't go around saying "If you hate Obama, then vote for a Bush clone."
I like Condi.
Back to you...
ABC, ah man, there goes my slogan “Anyone But Commies”
Apart from Kissinger I can’t think of a single recent SoS who’s been spoken of in glowing terms.I happen to have a lot of respect for Condi...I think she’s smart,dignified,capable.I think.for example,that she’s *far* better qualified to be POTUS than is our Community Organizer-In-Chief.I,personally,think she’d be a huge plus for the ticket...either in the top spot or the second spot.
No, and screw this author and his revisionist dreams.
Condi “do you know who I am” Rice?
Wouldn’t be related to John “do you know who I am” Kerry?
A mark of character is to admit one’s mistakes. This is a refreshing difference from the ‘politics as usual’ lie, spin, twist, obfuscate, strategy employed by most professional politicians.
Usually those who admit their mistakes learn from them. Those who cover up their mistakes become less proficient at everything except covering up.
Bush and Condi are both professing Christians who have taken unpopular stands for their beliefs. And both love America.
I would vote for Condi for President OVER any of the current frontrunners.
I think Condi was a better National Security Advisor than a SecState.
She was a better SecState than Colin Powell, though.
I’ll give you that one!
Colon Powell was an utter jackass and I got that from people who were forced to work with this inflated ego in the Pentagon.
America has been cursed with lousy SOSs. The current one, who no doubt picked Janet Reno (Lusty lesbian) when she was ‘running’ the White Hut, is a disgrace.
Why in the hell do so many FReepers continue to toss accolades her way and to suggest that she should run for president...or vice president?
The idea is patently absurd.
It’s nice that you ‘like’ her. I don’t even care in what way you like her; however, to put this woman in the White Hut....in any capacity is simply wrong-headed thinking.
She’s pro-abort. That does it for me.
Screw Romney. He agrees with most of what GWB did.
Condi seems like a nice person but reminding voters of GWB is a great way of joining the Obama 2012 campaign.
I can see where the moderator edited this article, which I did as well keeping it well under 300 words, but I wonder why he decimated the posting into one sentence?
I had high hopes for Condi.
She was big disappointment & turned out to be more of a Rino than I realized.
If GW could talk, he might now be on Mt. Rushmore. However, as he aged in office, the genetically determined wimp factor took firmer hold, as he bumbled and cartered his way out of office.
The Bush Legacy: Why Obama, of course!
Dr. Rice is a RINO and an ovowed Arabist. She is a disaster.
I was just prodding you, with a bit of dissent. :D
While Dr. Rice is pleasant and not unattractive, my support for her has nothing to do with infatuation.
She was instrumental in American policy vis-a-vis the Soviet Union, and played a role in resolving the cold war.
Rice is perhaps, one of the most brilliant people to have been in American government recently.
I disagree with, but understand her not opposing Obama. Frankly looking at America’s history someone like Obama was inevitable.
What’s important now that we’ve gotten that historical inevitability out of the way - is defeating him before he destroys our nation.
And sure, I still like Condi.
