    "3. Turned around an inherited economy that was in recession, and deeply shocked as a result of the 9/11 attacks."

    By turned around, do you mean how he tripled the American deficit?

    "13. Fight Europe's ban on importing biotech crops from the United States. " Those would be the foods the Europe doesn;t want because they have been altered significantly and no longer represent the orginal item, most bioengineered foods are fine.

    "1. Changed the tone in the White House, restoring HONOR and DIGNITY to the presidency. " Lieing about weapons of mass destruction, invading two countries just to stop teh dollar dropping and his party looking bad. killed thousands in the process, where is the honour and dignity in that?  Also it is not dignified to make the number of stupifying errors that he has in his speeches and daily life.

    "2. Has reintroduced the mention of God and faith into public discourse." most countries have laws against that so it prevents the psychotic delusionals from being in charge.

    "3. Handled himself with enormous courage, dignity, grace, determination, and leadership in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 hijackings and anthrax attacks. He almost single-handedly held this country together during those searing days:"

    By handled it, do you mean invaded a country which had not seen the person blamed for teh attacks in five years? costing thousands of civilian lives on both sides?

    "1. Killed the Kyoto Global Warming Treaty." Yet he still taxes and blames global warming, while still turning a blind eye to all the other pollutants strangling the world.

    "21. Successfully executed two wars in the aftermath of 9/11/01: Afghanistan and Iraq. 50 million people who had lived under tyrannical regimes now live in freedom." You mean those wars which are still being fought?

    "4. Disarmed Libya of its chemical, nuclear and biological WMD's without bribes or bloodshed." Libya publicly stated that it did not give up its nuclear program, its biological WMDs are about as real as the ones that they had so much trouble finding in Iraq.

    "6. Initiated a comprehensive review of our military, which was completed just prior to 9/11/01, and which accurately reported that ASYMMETRICAL WARFARE capabilities were critical in the 21st Century." Which included a plan to invade Afghanistan months before 9/11, in an attempt to stop tehm selling oil in Euros rather than the dollar.

    "10. Pushed through THREE raises for our military. Increased military pay by more than $1 billion a year. " Gotta keep the body count up somehow!

    "13. Prohibited putting U.S. troops under U.N. command." Because the UN wanted nothing to do with Bush's illegal wars, and the UN is a peace keeping force which does countless good around the world.

    "14. Paid back UN dues only in return for reforms and reduction of U.S. share of the costs." Basically he ripped off a charity.

    "1. Challenged the United Nations to live up to their responsibilities and not become another League of Nations (in other words, showed the UN to be completely irrelevant)." Failed to understand what the United Nations actually is.

    "2. Killed U.S. involvement in the International Criminal Court. " Was removed from involvement, would be more accurate.

    "3. Told the United Nations we weren't interested in their plans for gun control (i.e., the International Ban on Small Arms Trafficking Treaty)." This being the plan to help many of the countries in Africa and the middle east from internal strife, as well as reducing gun crime in europe?

    "4. The only President since the founding of the UN to essentially tell that organization it is irrelevant. He said: "The conduct of the Iraqi regime is a threat to the authority of the United Nations, and a threat to peace. Iraq has answered a decade of UN demands with a decade of defiance. All the world now faces a test, and the United Nations a difficult and defining moment. Are Security Council resolutions to be honored and enforced, or cast aside without consequence? Will the United Nations serve the purpose of its founding, or will it be irrelevant?" We all know the outcome and the answer." That would be in context of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction that Bush claimed they had, btu it turned out they didn't, oops.

    "5. Told the Congress and the world, "America will never seek a permission slip to defend the security of our country." Invading other countries without reason is not 'Defence'.

    "2. Has CONSTRUCTION in process on the first 10 ABM silos in Alaska so that America will have a defense against North Korean nukes. Has ordered national and theater ballistic missile defenses to be deployed by 2004." The nukes that it wants as a deterrent to China, not America, China has been the one stealth invading countries for the last thirty years.

    "13. Established a six-month deadline for processing immigration applications. " Which is strange, because I am in the process of immigrating to America and so far it has taken nearly a year, and still has an estimated three months to go.

    I'm not saying that Bush has not done any good things for America, or the world, but I do feel like the negatives outweigh tthe positives with this one.

    Hopefully the latest president will be able to clear some of Americas new defecit, which is in danger of becoming unmanageable, and sort the country out before I get over there.

        He's not had much chance to clear it yet, and Bush was the one who created more defecit than anyone else in History, his wars cost America BIG.
