George W. Bush

Past work experience:

The first two items are strictly to set a negative tone and     put the 
reader in a negative frame of mind for what's to come.

- Ran for congress and lost.      ----  SO WHAT??? ------ PEOPLE RUN FOR 
CONGRESS, SENATE, SCHOOL BOARD, CITY COUNCIL etc, etc, etc, and don't win.  
Probably more of a  positive that an attempt was made, but this is not 
designed to be neutral.

- Produced a Hollywood 'slasher' B movie. ----  Don't you mean he was an 
investor in a movie venture.  Labeling at a "slasher B movie" (if it wa 
that) does not tell us if he made money at it, broke even, or lost money -- 
the reason for investing in a movie venture.

- Bought an oil company, but couldn't find any oil in Texas, company
went bankrupt shortly after I sold all my stock. ----- Baa baa, did you 
really own any stock in this company.  If so you made the same mistake 
George made and we've all made.  Investments that didn't  pan out.  Of 
course you've never made a bad investment, did you now?

- Bought the Texas Rangers baseball team in a sweetheart deal that
took land... using taxpayer money.       Please define "sweetheart deal".  
Using tax payer money???  do you actually mean eminent domain, which is 
almost always used when acquiring a laaarge tract of land, so a few lone 
holdouts do not ra pe the developer.  This is OUR LAW over here and is used 
for all type of ventures.  san diego has just gone through the same   p 
rocess for the Padres baseball team.   I didn't vote for it and I'm not a 
Pardre fan, but this is our system.    Biggest move: Traded Sammy Sosa to 
the Chicago White Sox.  Cannot comment on this except to say that Sammy Sosa 
p lays for the Chicago Cubs not the White Sox.  If indeed Sammy was traded, 
it was a mistake, however with the exception of George Steinbrenner, owners 
usually have nothing to say about the trading of players -- that is usually 
done by the general manager, directors of  player  personel, field managers 
and coachs.

- With fathers help ( and his name ) was elected Governor of Texas.
Accomplishments: Changed pollution laws for power and oil companies
and made Texas the most polluted state in the Union. Replaced Los
Angeles with Houston as the most smog ridden city in America. Cut
taxes and bankrupted the Texas government to the tune of billions in
borrowed money. Set record for most executions by any Governor in
American history.

- Became president after losing the popular vote by over 500,000
votes, with the help of my father's appointments to the Supreme Court.   I 
think I've already elaborated on this in a sharechat post.  We do not elect 
a President by adding up the  popular vote of all the states, but by adding 
up the  popular vote of each state.  Then each state through the electoral 
college elects the  President.  It has been this way since the f ounding of 
our country.  Nothing new here and it has happened before.  An uninformed 
reader however may think that something sinistr is going on here.  Our 
suupreme court did nothing more then tell the state of Florida, that they 
must follow their own election laws, which they passed.  Some counties in 
Florida, totally controled by Democrats were trying to steal the election.  
Somewhat like President Kennedy did in 1960, in the state of Illinois, 
everyone  pretty much acknowledges now.  This time it didn't work because 
they were ignoring the law and the Supreme court said they had to follow 
their own laws.

Accomplishments as president:

- Attacked and took over two countries.   HEY, YOU GOT ONE RIGHT.

- Spent the surplus and bankrupted the treasury.   LAST TIME I CHECKED (this 
morning) treasury is not only bankrupt, but bonds were much higher.  Is the 
whole world buying bankrupt bonds -- I don't think so.

- Shattered record for biggest annual deficit in history.  I don't have 
adequate knowledge to say yea or nay on this, but I really doubt it if 
constant dollars are used.

- Set economic record for most private bankruptcies filed in any 12 month 
period.   george bush has nothing to do with this, so he couldn't set such a 

- Set all-time record for biggest drop in the history of the stock market.  
You might  possibly be right on this if your're referring to the 3 yr. bear 
market, which started under clinton's watch according to all official 
estimates of when the economic contraction started.

- First president in decades to execute a federal prisoner.   I missed this 
one --did he pull the switch or are you saying that some mass murderer was 
not granted a   pardon or a stay???????

- First president in US history to enter office with a criminal record.   
Your mean the driving under the influence charge???  Surely no othe 
President has ever been caught driving under the influence --- get a life.  
Even lowly politicos have been caught doing worse, but some got the charges 
"dropped".  I guess George didn't bother using his influence on this one.

- First year in office set the all-time record for most days on vacation by 
any president in US history.  I really don't think anyone knows or can 
document this.  also how do you define a President on vacation -- only 
working 6 hours a day??????

- After taking the entire month of August off for vacation, presided over 
the worst security failure in US history.   OH yes we all saw him cheering 
on the planes as they crashed into the trade center builldings.

- Set the record for most campaign fund raising trips than any other 
president in US history.  I have no way of knowing, --- but if so, SO WHAT?

- In my first two years in office over 2 million Americans lost their job.  
I also was a resident of New York when the highest murder rate in history 
was set.  I lived in New York, during the hey day of the Mafia.  What really 
does any of this mean.  George didn't fire those  peo ple and I didn't kill 
anyone.  POST HOC, ERGO PROPTER HOC.  ever heard of it Baa baa.

- Cut unemployment benefits for more out of work Americans than any 
president in US history. ---- I think you mean they ran out of benefits and 
he didn't extend them by ignoring the law.  By the way unemployment benefits 
are  pa id for by the states out of state funds.  In the case of California 
these funds are collected from employers based on their payroll.  They also 
vary fro state to state.

- Set the all-time record for most foreclosures in a 12 month period.   I 
didn't know that George owned so many  parcels of real property.  Do you 
really mean that a lot of  people got overextended tring to make money on 
their homes and when the economy turned down at the end of the jClinton 
Admin. they couldn't make their   payments and the lenders foreclosed???

- Appointed more convicted criminals to administration positions than any 
president in US history.   Please do document this, I thing it's an irresp 
onsible charge.

- Set the record for the least amount of press conferences than any 
president since the advent of television. Maybe maybe not -- I do not know.  

- Signed more laws and executive orders amending the Constitution than any 
president in US history. Our Constitution can only be amended by the 
Congress and or the States with a vote of the people.  There haven't been 
any amendments in quite a number of years.

- Presided over the biggest energy crises in US history and refused to 
intervene when corruption was revealed.   1972 was a MUCH MUCH bigger energy 
crises, so your first point is incorrect.  The SEC is in charge of this and 
did do something, albeit a bit laate and our courts are doing something.  We 
have a President not a dictator in charge of every little detail of ouir 

- Presided over the highest gasoline prices in US history and refused to use 
the national reserves as past presidents have.   Bullshit, just plain 
bullshit the  prices were considerably higher in 1972 not even taking 
inflation into account.  At 1972 prices, adjusted for inflation gasoline 
would be a ppr ox $4.00   per gallon not the $1.77 that I saw on my way home 
last night.  By the way since our strategical oil reserves are quite low, 
George has tried to rebuild them.  This is his stated   public policy.

- Cut healthcare benefits for war veterans.  Can't comment, but I'd like to 
see your facts since the military and veterans seem to be very pro Bush.

- Set the all-time record for most people worldwide to simultaneously take 
to the streets to protest me ( 15 million people ) , shattering the record 
for protest against any person in the history of mankind.   Your "might be 
right" -- I don't know.  what I do know is that many other leaders would 
have not allowed such a thing.  Ask the people in T square in China how they 
were treated.

- Dissolved more international treaties than any president in US history.   
I do not have the knowledge to comment on this one.

- My presidency is the most secretive and unaccountable of any in US 
history.  YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING.  How much do you know about the 
presidents that preceded George W.  Before the days of  instant 
communications and hoards of media types following every move a president 
makes do yo  really believe George bush is the mose secretive and 
unaccountable.  Get a history book and educatae yourself.

- Members of my cabinet are the richest of any administration in US history. 
( The 'poorest' multimillionaire, Condoleezza Rice has a Chevron oil tanker 
named after her ) .  Again I don't know if this is true or not, but if so 
myu   only question would be -- how did they get their money?  Honest 
success should not be denigrated.

- First president in US history to have all 50 states of the Union 
simultaneously go bankrupt.  REALLY, this would be laughable, if it wasn't 
so blatlanly irres ponsible. Would you kindly name one state that has 
declared bankrupcy.  I live in the state that is in the worst condition and 
government workers are being paid, services are up and running, the courts, 
legislature and executive branches are all working and being  paid.  ALL 50 
states -- WOW -- where have I been??

- Presided over the biggest corporate stock market fraud of any market in 
any country in the history of the world.   The president does not  preside 
over the stock market.  The NYSE is a private business run by it's members.  
While I'm not here to defend the NYSE, I've got to tell you that I've never 
enen seen George at the exchange.

- First president in US history to order a US attack and military occupation 
of a sovereign nation.  I think I know what you mean, but president Clinton 
might ask, well how about Japan, Germany, Italy and even France during the 
second world war.  Choose your words to say what you  mean bubba.

- Created the largest government department bureaucracy in the history of 
the United States.  You.ll have to fill me in on this.

- Set the all-time record for biggest annual budget spending increases, more 
than any president in US history.   Very possibly, but you'r better check 
the budgets during WW 1 & II and the Vietnam war as well.  After all 9/11 
was the first time the mainland of the United States was attacked.  I too do 
not like many of the s p  ending  programs of George.

- First president in US history to have the United Nations remove the US 
from the human rights commission.   Doesn't bother most Americans in the 

- First president in US history to have the United Nations remove the US 
from the elections monitoring board.   Same answer as above.

- Removed more checks and balances, and have the least amount of 
congressional oversight than any presidential administration in US history.  
show me the money.

- Rendered the entire United Nations irrelevant.   In the minds of many many 
Americans it's been irrelevant since aabout the time I was born.  I think it 
shoujld move to France.

- Withdrew from the World Court of Law.   Yes for a very good reason,  Yea 
George you got this one right.

- Refused to allow inspectors- access to US prisoners of war and by default 
no longer abide by the Geneva Conventions.   Doesn't the Red Cross count, 
they have ben granted access.

- First president in US history to refuse United Nations election inspectors 
( during the 2002 US elections ) .   Why would they be needed, we don't have 
soldiers  on our street  corners and I've never seen anyone who was 
registered to vote, denied voting access.

- All-time US ( and world ) record holder for most corporate campaign 
donations.  sounds like a success to me.  Jealous or don't you admire 

- My biggest lifetime campaign contributor presided over one of the largest 
corporate bankruptcy frauds in world history ( Kenneth Lay, former CEO of 
Enron Corporation ) .  Yes and he's going to JAIL as well.  George is not 
pulling strings nor going to pardon him, as his predescessor did with some 
if his campaign contributors.

- Spent more money on polls and focus groups than any president in US 
history.  can't argue this and neither can anyone else, but Bill Clinton was 
the true master of these techniques and THEY ARE VERY LEGAL IN POL I TICS AS 

- First president in US history to unilaterally attack a sovereign nation 
against the will of the United Nations and the world community.  well not 
all the world community, but essicentially you are correct in this.  Is that 
three or four meaningful things right so far.

- First president to run and hide when the US came under attack
( and then lied saying the enemy had the code to Air Force 1 )   the secret 
service dictates the behaviour of the President as well as the 
vice-President in these circumstances.  You make it seem like he crawled 
under the bed.  Whoever wrote this sound like a my daddy can beat up your 
daddy type.

- First US president to establish a secret shadow government.  Who are 
they??  Oh I forgot they are secret.  If they are secret how come you know 
about them.  If you know about them, they're not secret are they??

- Took the biggest world sympathy for the US after 911, and in less than a 
year made the US the most resented country in the world ( possibly the 
biggest diplomatic failure in US and world history ) .  People have resented 
us for years and years and years and years.

- With a policy of 'disengagement' created the most hostile 
Israeli-Palestine relations in at least 30 years.   These guys have been 
fighting for so long I don't  know how anyone can even begin to assess when 
the most hostile relations existed.  How about the 6 day war??

- First US president in history to have a majority of the people of Europe ( 
71% ) view my presidency as the biggest threat to world peace and stability. 
  71% can't be wrong can they???  Who gets to vote in these p olls and how 
valid are they???  I don have the answers.

- First US president in history to have the people of South Korea more 
threatened by the US than their immediate neighbor, North Korea.   Not the 
South Korean's I know and I live across the street from some.

- Changed US policy to allow convicted criminals to be awarded government 
contracts.  What kind of criminals, people who smoke in non smoking areas, 
drive too fast or murder people.  Get more specific if you're going to make 
such a charge.

- Set all-time record for number of administration appointees who violated 
US law by not selling huge investments in corporations bidding for 
government contracts.  You might be right, but I hve no way of knowing, nor 
does anyone else I think.  You make it seem like we were a nation of saints  
prior to the Bush administration.

- Failed to fulfill my pledge to get Osama Bin Laden 'dead or alive'.  STILL 
WORKING ON IT BUBBA!!  But we did find Saddam hideing in a rat hole  and now 
we're looking for a snake hole.

- Failed to capture the anthrax killer who tried to murder the leaders of 
our country at the United States Capitol building. After 18 months I have no 
leads and zero suspects.   George, forget the world and get out there and  
pound the pavement and personally find this guy.

- In the 18 months following the 911 attacks I have successfully prevented 
any public investigation into the biggest security failure in the history of 
the United States.   Public  investigation, not any investigation.  
Intelligence community must be protected from  public type investigations or 
  people get exposed and killed.

- Removed more freedoms and civil liberties for Americans than any other 
president in US history.  I haven't notice a difference except for the 
security at airposts, on ships and at places that could be major targets.  
Annoying, yes, but I like to get to my destinatiion in one piece and their 
are  p     eople our there trying to kill me.

- In a little over two years created the most divided country in decades, 
possibly the most divided the US has ever been since the civil war.  Com'on 
now, look at the 2000 election.  George was not  President then and it was 
50-50 then -- can't get anymore divided than that.

- Entered office with the strongest economy in US history and in less than 
two years turned every single economic category heading straight down.  
Economy had already turned down  prior to George taking office and this has 
been documented by the economists.

Records and References:

- At least one conviction for drunk driving in Maine ( Texas driving record 
has been erased and is not available ) .

- AWOL from National Guard and Deserted the military during a time of war.   
Deserted the military during a time of war.  If this were even remotely true 
the Democrats would have been hollering it from the rooftops in the 2000 
election.  General Clark was challenged to disavow  one of his supporters 
who made such a charge and all he coujld do was say well I didn't check into 
it, I don't know what the fcts are and my supporters can say anything they 
want.  General Clark could get such information in a heartbeat, if it were 
true and would be using it believe me.  I think the real story is that 
George missed weekend drill when he was with the National Guard and was 
therefor technically AWOL that is absent without offical leave.  How irres 
ponsible can you people be.

- Refuse to take drug test or even answer any questions about drug use.  
Whle I do not nor ever have used drugs, it is his constitutional right to 
refuse such requests.  We do not line in a dictatorship.

- All records of my tenure as governor of Texas have been spirited away to 
my fathers library, sealed in secrecy and unavailable for public view.  I've 
heard this is true although using the term s pirited away is misleading.

- All records of any SEC investigations into my insider trading or bankrupt 
companies are sealed in secrecy and unavailable for public view.  All SEC 
investigations are unless they result in convictions or actual wrongdoing is 
found.  For the protection of the innocent.  Not everyone who is the subject 
of an investigation is guily of one.

- All minutes of meetings for any public corporation I served on the board 
are sealed in secrecy and unavailable for public view.  I don't know about 
this or whether this might be common for board meetings to be private.

- Any records or minutes from meetings I ( or my VP ) attended regarding 
public energy policy are sealed in secrecy and unavailable for public 
review.  Yes allowed under our constitution and very legal.

- For personal references please speak to my daddy or Uncle James Baker
( They can be reached at their offices of the Carlyle Group for 
war-profiteering. )
