The Official Bush Accomplishment List
Miss Marple | March 27, 2002 | Miss Marple

Posted on 03/27/2002 9:22:46 AM PST by Miss Marple

I think it would be nice to collect a list of all of the things President Bush has accomplished thus far in his term. In an effort to provide FAIR and BALANCED coverage to President Bush's administration, I thought interested Freepers could post accomplishments, both large and small, which they appreciate.

Please do not hesitate to list EO's, roll-backs of EO's, regulation changes with which you are familiar, etc.

All positive accomplishments are welcome. If you have negative comments, please post them on the other thread. Thank you.


TOPICS: Your Opinion/Questions

I will start with a couple of big ones:

1. The tax cut
2. The missile defense shield

1. tax cut. He lowered rates to a level above those that his two predecessors admitted were mistakenly high. Big deal. He transferred $300 to each taxpayer, mostly from revenues taken from high earners, and sending it to low earners.

1. The 2-3% tax cut backloaded over ten years weighted toward net tax consumers at the expense of net tax payors, combined with the 5% increase in payroll withholding taxes (taxed twice--they're matched by your employer) and the largest budget ever submitted by a U.S. president--with an additional cabinet-level department for good measure.

2. What missile defense shield?

Lady, you are delusional.

Fighting the Kyoto treaty, his decision to not change the arsenic rulings, his decision on stem cell research.

How about his brilliant gambit of signing the CFR into law so that his friends in the NRA could immediately challenge it in court, maintaining his political capital while simultaneously watching this law declared unconstitutional once and for all by the courts.......Whew!

As if shrines to the almighty Bush weren't posted on here ad-nauseum. Balance? With all due respect, I'd say 75% of the people on this forum show less reverence for God than you people do for Bush. I don't dislike either you or Bush, but there are times when I'd describe the support from some of Bush's supporters around here as approaching fanaticism.

How about his appointment of a conservative to the (un)Civil Rights Board?

Military pay increases. Changing the focus of the military. Appointing Sect. Rumsfeld.

He has kept his zipper zipped thus far.

He has brought a sense of dignity and respect back to the office.

<With all due respect, I'd say 75% of the people on this forum show less reverence for God than you people do for Bush.

I've seen less dislike for the Devil himself than the antipathy that the hardcore Bush-bashers show towards Bush.

Bush seems to be a love-him-or-hate-him kind of person, with middle ground not possible.

Apparently you missed this post, which was posted BEFORE mine (hence the fair and balanced comment):

The Official Bush Cave List

I thought, in an effort to avoid rancor, we could have two lists rather than arguing on Jhoffa's. I took to heart your comment that you didn't trash threads, which I am afraid I skirted awfully close to this morning on yours, and so I am trying to have a debate without any personal attacks.

I am providing the link here because there are apparently a lot of people who didn't see Jhoffa's post, and may wonder why I did this.

Thanks.

Can what he did as governor count or is this strictly Presidential? My favorite thing Bush did was sign the Parental Notification Act, in the great state of Texas.

I think your sarcasm on CFR is misdirected. The CFR portions that are constitutional (increasing the hared money limits and reducing the cost of paid media time) will mostly benefit Republicans and the American People and the rest (silencing special interests and banning speech) will be gone before they take effect. The Democrats erred when they accepted the idea of allowing portions of the bill to be seperated out and found unconstitutional.

That's just not true. There may be a core group of hardcore Bush-bashers out there, but there was a lengthy thread posted yesterday concerning Bush/CFR and there were PLENTY of FReepers who said that CFR was the last (not the first or only) straw for them. The question remains - where do supporters draw the line before they feel (or are allowed to feel) betrayed?

Ignore them, if you want. Deny they exist. Make excuses. Group them in with RINO's, RATS or whatever. But they're there and they (we) are not getting answers or wise counsel.

The most important accomplishment to me is the respect and dignity he has brought to the CinC.
My hubby and now my son(in basic) are PROUD to serve this man.
I have only two issues when I vote...military and abortion.
After 8 years of knowing you were held in contempt by your CinC, I can't tell you what it feels like now!

My 20 year old wanted to enlist after HS...I begged him not to....to wait and see who was elected in 2000, I couldn't bear to have algore or another clintonite his CinC.....it was bad enough that the rapist was my hubby's CinC
now, after reading all these threads and listening to the radio, it is so sad that some of Bush's supporters are about to desert him.....my hubby can retire anytime...my son can't...he will have 4 more years after 2004...God help him if a Rat is elected....

Thank you for your comments. I think it helps to keep things in perspective, and this thread is my effort to get the debate to a more civil tone. I also believe he has done good things for the military, and if we can get the DEFENSE BILL passed, even more good things will come (like another pay raise).

Abortions have gone way down here (I think). It was a good thing. Not just to save the babies, but parents need to know when their own "babies" are having surgery for crying out loud.

Thank you for taking my comments in stride. I agree that you should definately start a thread any time you like, and especially after the one you pointed out.

What I objected to was my perception regarding the comment that you needed to start a thread as if Bush didn't receive support around here.

Since I missed that other thread, that was clearly a false impression. I did not understand where you were coming from and it showed. I appreciate you bringing my mistake to my attention.

I didn't so much object to you coming to my thread this morning. I guess I get rather touchy because I have a feeling that there is a group on this forum that will not accept any criticism of Bush at all. It is not the idea that Bush can't do anything right that drives me. I think he does do good things. I have tried to take note of it when he does. It's just the perception that it seems like some feel he can do no wrong that drives me crazy.

I'll leave the thread in peace. Thanks for taking my comments in stride.

Been to that link. Liked it better here because the level of discourse is - or was - much more civil. Sorry for the intrusion. Maybe by the time you're done, though, you'll have use the link because you'll be the only one here allowed to post under whatever rules you have decided to impose.

Bye.

Sigh..Good to see some things around here just never change.

How about his use of the word 'evil' whenever possible to address our enemies. Especially in Korea when, after viewing that hatchet house where US GIs were murdered he said, "And people wonder why I call them evil."

Well, that made me feel a little better. Thanks Jane.
