Talk:Bush-hater

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Has this term been used anywhere other than conservapedia itself? If not then surely this page should be deleted. I've not seen it anywhere other than this site and as such should be deleted due to not being notable enough. That and the facts that it makes a couple of points completely unsupported by refrences or citations --BigKingBob 15:33, 13 August 2008 (EDT)

Yep. I've heard the term a lot during Academic Quiz Bowl practices throughout high school. o.O Natebecause people listen to what I say? 15:50, 13 August 2008 (EDT)
I suppose I'm what you'd call a Bush-hater, but in my case it has nothing to do with his faith. It has a lot more to do with the following:
  • His unprecedented use of signing statements to ignore the intent of bills he's signed into law
  • His lack of fiscal discipline and mishandling of the budget, turning a surplus into record deficits in a handful of years
  • His inept foreign policy, overextending the US military by invading Iraq on specious evidence, while allowing North Korea and Iran to develop documented nuclear programs
  • His disregard for due process and the rights of individuals, including the practice of extraordinary rendition, the redefinition of waterboarding to not be torture, warrantless wiretapping when the FISA process was adequate, etc.
  • His mishandling of hurricane Katrina, and direct lying that he had no warning of the danger when video evidence showed otherwise
  • His systematic efforts to undermine clean air and water regulations for the sake of being pro-business, underfunding of the FDA leading to inadequate food inspections, etc.
  • His commutation of Scooter Libby's sentence, which was an insult to the Republican judge, the sentencing guidelines that were put in place during his administration, and the jury of Americans who gave him a fair trial and convicted him on the evidence.
  • His attempt to nominate cronies like Harriet Meirs to critical positions like Supreme Court Justice, over far more qualified candidates like John Roberts
I could go on, but this is pushing 90/10 as it is. No president has a flawless record, but by any objective, non-partisan standard George W. Bush will surely go down in history as one of the worst presidents in U.S. history. The fact that CP keeps his page locked and refuses to add objective criticisms shows the reluctance here to acknowledge this, but that doesn't make it any less real. -DinsdaleP 15:40, 14 August 2008 (EDT)
