Whether you disagree with his policies, whether you disagree with Iraq, Gitmo, international wiretaps, whatever else...whether you totally hate him..... we all owe him a thank you for his efforts in not having another terrorist attack on our soil. I hope and pray Obama can say the same thing when he leaves office in 8 years.

Clinton get a lot of blame for that, even though you will not admit it. If the CIA had not been gutted by Clinton, they would have caught Alquaida growing so much so fast.

Thank you, George Bush, for being a part of Pete Seeger and Paul Simon getting Kennedy honors. :) Did Dylan get one, too, while he was president?

Ah Clinton, Clinton, Clinton.

I take that as a "yes, there is blame with Bush"

Bush acted like a scared, cowed thug.

I'm sure there are things I can thank Mr. Bush for. I'm sure that some people did some work that protected the usa from terrorist acts and I wouldn't be surprised if Bush actually did participate in some decisions and actions that have kept the usa safer. But he precided over the worst terrorist attack in USA history and his reaction to it has made us weaker in many many ways. Fear and weakness is a lot of what defined Mr. Bush

other than that, I got nothing.

I can think of no President that has been so divisive both domestically and internationally than W has been. Actually that's not true internationally. He's been an ace at uniting hate against or nation internationally.

thanks for abandoning the Constitution, george

The USA PATRIOT Act has generated a great deal of controversy since its enactment. Opponents<sup class="noprint Inline-Template">[who?]</sup> of the Act have been quite vocal in asserting that it was passed opportunistically after the September 11 terrorist attacks, believing there to have been little debate. They view the Act as one that was hurried through the Senate with little change before it was passed.<sup id="cite_ref-EPICNotMuchDebate_186-0" class="reference"></sup><sup id="cite_ref-EFFRushJob_187-0" class="reference"></sup><sup id="cite_ref-LeahyConcernsFinalAct_8-1" class="reference"></sup>The sheer magnitude of the Act itself was noted by Michael Moore in his film Fahrenheit 9/11. In one of the scenes of the movie, he records Congressman Jim McDermott alleging that no Senator read the bill<sup id="cite_ref-F-911-McDermott_188-0" class="reference">[189]</sup> and John Conyers, Jr. as saying "We don't really read most of the bills. Do you know what that would entail if we read every bill that we passed?" Congressman Conyers then answers his own rhetorical question, asserting that if they did it would "slow down the legislative process".<sup id="cite_ref-F-911-Conyers_189-0" class="reference">[190]</sup>


<sup id="cite_ref-NCIS_TheAge_191-0" class="reference"></sup>
EPIC have criticised the law as unconstitutional, especially when "the private communications of law-abiding American citizens might be intercepted incidentally",<sup id="cite_ref-EPIC_RovingWiretaps_192-0" class="reference">[193]</sup> while the EFF hold that the lower standard applied to wiretaps "gives the FBI a 'blank check' to violate the communications privacy of countless innocent Americans".<sup id="cite_ref-EFFOnRovingWiretaps_193-0" class="reference">[194]</sup>

<sup id="cite_ref-PaulRosenzweigOnRovingWiretaps_195-0" class="reference"></sup>
The Act also allows access to voicemail through a search warrant rather than through a title III wiretap order.<sup id="cite_ref-Section209_196-0" class="reference">[197]</sup> James Dempsey, of the CDT, believes that it unnecessarily overlooks the importance of notice under the Fourth Amendment and under a Title III wiretap,<sup id="cite_ref-ABA_DempseySection209_212_220_197-0" class="reference">[198]</sup> and the EFF criticises the provision's lack of notice. However, the EFF's criticism is more extensive

LOL


most illogical 'thought process' ever.

he IS to blame for 9/11. even if you don't think he was directly responsible for it, it happened ON HIS WATCH.

and everything he's done since then has only EMPOWERED those who hate us.

Are you serious?
The 9/11 attack was against Bush. We can all thank Bush for 9/11.
Clinton worked his ass off trying to broker peace in the middle east. Bush refused to even meet with both sides, or did you forget about that?

not to mention the thousands of American lives lost in Iraq, Thanks W.
not to mention destroying the constitution with the patriot act, Thanks W.
[sarcasm]lets not forget the myriad of weapons of mass destruction he recovered[/sarcasm]

Bush sucks! now that he's no longer president, I can say it loud and proud without fear of a swat team taking me out in the middle of the night for violating the patriot act by voicing my opinions!:joker:

After Sept. 11th, George W. Bush appeared on television and his speech that night was remarkable. It was written for him, I am no fool, however, he delivered it beautifully and gave us all some courage to move forward and I remember many many of you being here and saying the same thing. I don't agree with much of what went on during the last 8 years, but I needed him that night and he executed the calmness, solidarity and united front that we needed.

I also thank him for being the ying to our yang today. Without his administration alienating many Americans, we wouldn't have pulled off this election. We again united over a cause... many many many many people were unhappy with him and so we pulled together to get him and his party out of office.

Here is a list I found citing some of his accomplishments:
1. Boosting Aid to Africa Threefold
This story from the Washington Post says, "The president has tripled direct humanitarian and development aid to the world's most impoverished continent since taking office and recently vowed to double that increased amount by 2010 -- to nearly $9 billion."

2. Taking Down the A.Q. Khan Nuclear Proliferation Network
A.Q. Kahn is considered the father of Pakistan's nuclear program. But several years ago, he confessed to leaking nuclear know-how and materials to Iran and Libya. Security experts suspect he also helped other countries including North Korea. Kahn is under house arrest in Pakistan. Critics say the Bush Administration should have acted faster on the Khan situation.

3. Getting Libya To Give Up Its WMD Programs And Renounce Terrorism

In late 2003, President Bush announced that "quiet diplomacy" had led to a breakthrough with Libya. Libya agreed to give up all weapons of mass destruction programs and allow international inspection of suspected weapons sites. The president has implied that Libya agreed to all this after seing how the United States reacted to Iraq's suspected weapons program. Critics paint a different picture.

4. Getting North Korea To Shut Down Its Nuclear Reactor (Eventually)
In what is considered a diplomatic "win" for U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice over the more aggressive policies of Vice President Dick Cheney, the United States has made slow but steady progress in dealing with North Korea.

5. Decapitating Al Qaeda's Top Leadership And Not Having a 2nd 9/11
Proving why something didn't happen is difficult, but we have to acknowledge that there has not been another 9/11 level attack on America. And many members of Al Qaeda are no longer with us.

Yup he even said it in his speach. The word is resposibility. Now say it with me people R-E-S-P-O-S-I-B-I-L-I-T-Y. Good.

Unless the GOP has other plans it should all be smooth sailing from here. AHHHHH the Clinton years. Let's see how long it takes for us to start complaining about moving forward again. These steps back are old :v:
