Talk:George H. W. Bush

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

He is considered by many to be one of the greatest presidents

I'll freely admit that Bush Senior looks a LOT better now that we've seen Junior at work, but, seriously. You can say that about EVERY president except Millard Fillmore and it'd be true. Are there any non-Democrat presidents Conservapedia DOESN'T like? --Scrap 01:40, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

I agree with you on most of your statement (except for the part about Junior at work.) We should avoid that kind of talk about Presidents. --User:Additioner 15:05, 25 April 2007

George, Sr. was a one term president, George, Jr, is polling equal to Jimmy Carter. I would not consider that one of the great political families. crshedd May 6, 2007

  • Well thank goodness they didn't do polling back in the days of the Adams men, eh? --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 08:31, 7 May 2007 (EDT)

Voodoo Economics...

Please read the articles. It is mentioned in the campaign section. Please refrain from repeating slogans. --~ TK MyTalk 15:47, 16 April 2007 (EDT)

No need to be snippy, TK, I didn't mean to hit a nerve. I don't see any mention of "voodoo economics" in the campaign section. I respectfully request that you restore the reference to the GHWB article.
  • Done. Sorry if you thought directness was snippy. I will try to watch that. --~ Sysop-TK /MyTalk 01:31, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

If by "directness" you are referring to your snide suggestion that I read the article, you are misusing the word. Unless you have evidence to the contrary, I would suggest you assume the contributor has read the article. Your comment was evidence that you had not read the article. I thought I was being rather charitable in referring to your comment as "snippy". And what exactly did you mean by "repeating slogans." Rather snide, wouldn't you say? Or condescending? Patronizing? --NitramNos 13:08, 27 April 2007 (EDT)


Is this article locked? --Will N. 08:41, 7 May 2007 (EDT)

  • Yes, Will. That is why I added the template saying so is pasted right above. --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 08:43, 7 May 2007 (EDT)


The North American Free Trade Agreement link doesn't work, as the article is titled NAFTA on conservapedia. The next time edits are allowed, it would be good to change this. ;-) Learn together 13:26, 21 May 2007 (EDT)

Term of Office

I'd like to add a citation to George Herbert Walker Bush's term of office section. Is this possible? Mal 16:57, 21 June 2008 (EDT)

Skull and Bones

I notice we have no article about the Skull and Bones fraternal organization, and the only coverage it gets in this article is that it held HW "build friendships and political support". No mention of its occult practices, connections with drug trade and third-world dictators, nightmarish initiation rituals, funding of the Third Reich (before and after the US's involvement in WWII), assassinations (both bodily and political)... but that might just be crazy talk. Except funding the Third Reich. That's a matter of public record. --JRFinn 19:48, 17 February 2009 (EST)

And the same charges have been made against Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr. And I was on that grassy knoll, don't you know? --₮K/Admin/Talk 20:14, 17 February 2009 (EST)
Well no, Skill and Bones has been investigated many times and these outrageous legends are liberal falsehoods. RJJensen 20:16, 17 February 2009 (EST) (YALE '65, but not a member of S&B)
Doctor!! I swear I was on that knoll! Really I was!  :p --₮K/Admin/Talk 20:23, 17 February 2009 (EST)

In-Page Citations

Why are no in-page citations used? If this article is to be verifiable, and statements of fact held accountable, shouldn't in-page citations be used, rather than a bibliographical list at the bottom? Otherwise, people will not be able to readily identify a given fact is true. --Jzyehoshua 12:51, 31 December 2009 (EST)
