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
KEYWORDS: accomplishments; bush; progress; wins

it is so sad that some of Bush's supporters are about to desert him.....

I see it as the other way around.

Sorry MM, I couldn't resist. See Ya.

. The question remains - where do supporters draw the line before they feel (or are allowed to feel) betrayed?

It's just not that hard to find STRAWS when you start out looking for them.

And it's just not that hard to find STRAWS when you have a hissy fit when any politican doesn't do EXACTLY like you want him to.

There are a lot of people on this site that never were for Bush, never will be for Bush, and wish something bad would happen to him.

Something WILL happen to him if they have their way; if they have their way, we'll have a Democratic president in 2004; that will REALLY show us, won't it?

ONE YEAR. He's been in office ONE YEAR, and these people are not willing to wait to see exactly what Bush can do.

Now, Class, what does that tell us?

It tells us that 1) they never supported him in the first place and more than likely worked against him; 2) that they were just looking for something to pin on him so they could come out of the closet, or:

3) They would be saying this about ANYBODY that was in the Oval Office.

The dropping of the death tax. Bush didn't get what he really wanted which was to end the death tax immediately but he did more about it than any other President, including his father. Some states are now trying to weasel their way out of it by imposing a state death tax which would be equivalent to the federal tax.

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.

Did it ever occur to you that the "other side," myself included, just might...........MIGHT believe that there are those on this forum that will never accept anything Bush does? Namely, the Patsies, the Brownies and the Keyesters. And the libertarians, of course.

Go slink off to a Bush-bashing thread, Doughty. You and the rest of your posse never have a positive thing to say about GWB and some of us are tired of it.

There's a thread running you'll feel right at home at, go moan over there.

I've been saying that for a while, now. Most of these "GWB is a (pick the slur)" posters wouldn't vote for him if he was the only candidate. If you watch them long enough, they trip themselves bragging about their vote for Phillips, Buchanan, or some other loser on other threads.

It just gets old after a while.

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.

You are deluding yourself. Most of the posters on that thread didn't vote for GWB and would never vote for him. You've got to realize where some of this venom is coming from, and it ain't coming from anyplace important.

I'm sure Bush is the very first president to have signed a bill which contained a few provisions he might have considered unconstitutional but was willing to let the Supreme Court review, as is their (not his) function. Every governor has signed such bills, every president has signed such bills. Where were all you strict constitutionalists then?

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.

I had intended to say, "...than some people do for Bush."  I had not intended to make a statement which cast a direct reflection on Miss. Marple.  I'd like to appologize for wording my comments in such a manner that they did reflect directly on Miss. Marple.  I believe that's inappropriate.

I believe that both sides need to be objective.  I think it's fair for both sides to call the other when they go over the line.

In support of Bush I will say that I think he is a good man.  I certainly disagree with him, but I do not see him as a Clinton at all.

While I do believe that certain people see Bush as all black or all white, I do not consider him to be such an individual. Bush is a good man. I do not think he sees things the same way I do. That doesn't necessarily make him a bad man at all. It's entirely possible for two good men to see things differently concering important topics. Does that mean that I'd necessarily vote for him? Most likely not.

I don't feel like a Bush supporter anymore; I feel like a Bush defender.

My preference is to take each issue individually and decide. I don't believe it is productive to criticize every action that Clinton took just because he was Clinton. Similarly, I don't think it helps to criticize each Bush action, or to defend every Bush action just because it was Bush who acted.

Bush has done some very good things. He has also done some rather bad ones.

In addition to the individual issues, I believe he is a decent man, which is a good thing, but I also think Carter was a decent man but a horrible President.

Howlin, I don't see a lot of people who think that Bush is as bad as Clinton. I do see a lot of people who have a problem with some of his policies. The problem as I see it is that those who support Bush feel that any criticism signifies hatred or irrationality. I don't deny that some out there probably see Bush as equal to Clinton. I'm certainly not one of them and would hope that not many actually see him in those terms, because I don't feel that view is justified.

The reality is that Bush is the president of the United States and all it's people, not just conservative Republicans. Until every citizen is of the same political persuasion, there are going to be areas where he must compromise-that's life. I will never buy into the false premise that Bush has abandoned his core conservative values-that is blatantly false. I will never, ever support the cause of trying to besmirch President Bush, like Rush has been doing. President Bush makes me proud to be an American and after the last 8 years,it doesn't get any better than that.

I never dreamed anybody on this site would call for his impeachment.

Really? I missed that.

To impeach him would suggest he is as bad as Clinton. That's crazy.

I don't agree with everything he does, but I'm not going to commit political suicide because he makes decisions differently than I would.

So once again, politics are more important than principle.
