    For the last 20 years America is ruled by really crapy guys, which is fact.
    Lets start from blood-thirsty crazy Bush-dad. Needless to say anymore.
    Then America was ruled by pervert saxophonist. Even more, how could such pervert rule America for TWO terms?! Cant believe it now.
    Wait, the most interesting part begins. America was ruled by complete moron, idiot, blood-thirsty Bush-son. Even though everyone knows he did 9.11, americans allowed him to rule them  for TWO terms?! Again.. Where is your dignity?

    I dont know, what is going on with America? Why do americans elect morons, perverts, criminals and elect them for TWO terms?! Why dont you elect them for 8 years and save money on meaningless fake elections? Because it wouldnt be democratic? LOL!!

    And now, today's Clown. I do remember how crazy you were when he won! It was so funny, though. "Change! Yes, we can!!, BLA-BLAh!!"  Americans were SO funny that time!! You believed him like kids. Now what? Elect him for the next term! He needs to finish his socialism-2. Give him chance! You will.

    And those are all your Leaders? They are Leaders of Great American Nation?  That is ALL you have for Presidents? LOL!!!
    Cmon, dont make me cry, please.

    Believe me, in other countries there are many great guys with much higher intellectual and moral qualities than your presidents.

    How could such a Great Nation choose such a crap?

      well first of all, we need to improve our education system, as it's proven statistically we're dead last in that category.  therefore, if we have school system that inhibits learning and we continue churning ignorant stupid americans, then guess what?  we'll end up with selfish ignorant leaders, and the cycle will continue to go on.  this is why I wished bush would've done the right thing and kept our troops in iraq and captured bin laden (when he was alive) and make an example out of him.  this way our tax payer's money would go to improve our educational system, as that's the main reason why we have ignorant morons at capital hill.  heck, in d.c. alone, it ranks among having the most illiterate children than anywhere else within the united states.

        You mean kept our troops in Afghanistan. He kept them there but didn't send enough to do a proper job.

          oh i know.  i was referring to the fact that he divided our troops to invade iraq based on false information; instead of just keeping our troops solely in afghanistan is what i was gathering at.

    Dude, you just shredded your credibility with the whole "Bush did 9/11" bit.....

      I agree, Cheney was the one running the country, not Bush. I will also admit that there are a lot of questions that our government refuses to answer about 9/11. Experience has taught me that when ever our government lies to the American people, there is usually a pretty good reason for it. Primarily it's that they don't want to get caught at whatever they are doing or did.

      The reason Americans continue to elect the same type of criminals to office is that they prefer to base their votes on rumor and conjecture rather than research into the canidate. Party line is the second stongest examplke of the sheep being led to slaughter. The first can be observed in any church you select, in any community in the country. Thinking for ones self has become old fashioned and is rideculed by the majority of non-thinking people in this country.

      Those in office use this fear of independent thinking to their fullest advantage. They know that if they release an attack ad based on rumor or outright lies, Very few Americans will take the time to do any fact checking on their own. Most people know in their heart that their chosen leaders wont lie to them because they voted for them to begin with. American voters hear about the deathcamps in Britian that socialized medicine mandates be opened and instead of checking for information about this claim, they run and tell their neighbor that the president is trying to kill their grandmother.

      A tea party candate claims that God demands a little girl who is raped by her father carry the baby to full term. Do American's question this outlandish bit of crap, hell no they run and buy an elect this idiot t-shirt.

      A while back Americans were told that the African American race was a sub-human species. Did they attempt to verify this information? No, simply because the American people in the 18th century didn't have the access to information we have today. Of course providing access to knowledge doesn't guarantee it is will be used. You can lead a christian to knowledge but you can't make him open the source. Of course what's the use, they already know someone who read the only book you need to live. Why should they be bothered with readin' and learnin'. This will interfere with their plans to persecute as many people a day (Based on the beliefs they developed when someone else did their learning for them) as is possible.

      America is electing the people they think will maintain the course this country is on. Most lack the ability to realize this is a path to destruction. Of course some may be trying to destroy the world so they can get their just rewards in heaven a little sooner.

      I'm miss Dubya being in office. The comedians had an easy 8 years with all the material he provided. He is what we need back in the whitehouse. When he was faced with a problem his plan was to pray about it. How many of those prayers were answered in 8 years?

      People will continue to vote for the canidate that yells the loudest from the biggest pulpit. They will continue to blame all the problems we face on the other paqrty while each party gets more rich and more powerful. Both parties will continue to lie, steal and cheat their way into office with the blessings of the majority of Americans.

      Sorry but I am unable to put my finger on exactly what's wrong with this country. I tried.

    Don't blame Americans for electing idiots to the office - blame big money and big corporations; that's who decide the president. The game is decided well before election and the rest is just a charade dressed up as "democracy"

      If that were true they could spend far less money on the charade part.

      George Bush is the only idiot president in my lifetime. By and large, with a couple of exceptions, e.g., Nixon, we've had pretty good presidents including the current one.

          Obama has accomplished an amazing number of changes in two years which I've listed several times before.

      With the exception of Bush II and Nixon our presidents have been relatively honest.

    Had Bush not sent the lion's share of troops to Iraq on a fool's errands, and devoted that firepower to Afghanistan in the first place, we probably could have found/dealt with bin laden.

    I'm not to sure why I've taken this line of questioning as a direct insult, but, truthfully I have.  SO.......! Just so you know, we Americans haven't elected "such crappy Presidents."  Out of 45 presidents, I can only come up with about five bad Presidents.  Presidents who were bad for the country and just plain bad for their time frame in office, and who were truly out of sync with their constituents.  Therefore, 40 out of 45 is a darn good average for a super power.  I think that puts us at about an A- if we were to receive a grade. 

    So where you get that line of thinking is beyond me.  Are you sure you are reading actual American history, and not just current hype or popular opinion, which is just directed at American presidents of the twenty-first century?

    Here is my list; I have Bush, Bush, Harrison, Grant, Hoover

    Because they are impatient. It take time to see results from a new president. It is not the president that cause the problem, it is the people and the members in the House and Senate. After this election gridlock will return. Nothing will be accomplished unless the Democrats and the Republicans work together and if the Republicans try to reverse anything the Obama administration have done in the last couple years he will use his veto power. Again this midterm election just created a serious case of gridlock in Washington again.
