They were all different ages, although a couple of them might have been the same age.
Some people don't understand the issues being discussed. Their only source of perspective is the slanted media and maybe the leftist organization "move on", but that's ok, since there still seem to be intelligent people in the country who have an attention span longer than a sound bite.
It's all a matter of perspective. President Bush has recognized that the best way to protect the nation from terrorists is to give democracy to people in the Middle East. Evil dictators such as Sadam were responsible for a knee-jerk reaction by the religious leaders. Some of the religious leaders blamed the U.S. for the installation of Sadam. After Sadam was removed many of the religious leaders wanted to position themselves into the vacuum and would create a nation that furthered their agenda. If we want more terrorism in THIS nation, all we need do is drop out of the Middle East and let the religious mullahs run the countries.
If you want more terrorist activities in this country, use Michael Moore as your news source. If you want a safe and secure nation, support your president. Remember that all of the Democrats who are now claiming that the President ?lied? were also the ones who UNDER CLINTON, were saying that Sadam HAD TO BE REMOVED FROM POWER. EVERY ONE OF THEM SAID THAT! Of course, now that President Bush is in the White House, they want to raise any issue that might weaken the president making the possibility of another Democrat in the White House more likely.
If you want to talk politics, at least try to be intelligent. Who knows, you might even have an intelligent thought in your head somewhere, but with questions like that one must believe that there is nothing inside your head other than mush.
It's A Constitutional RightThe US Constitution gives every US citizen the right to disagree about matters including politics and political leaders.
People make decisions based on their own experiences and personal feelings, that does not mean they are wrong, uneducated about issues or vindictive towards the party they are expressing their discontent.
The US is a Republic and a democratic society and no one person has the right to tell another what they should or should not believe about any political leader, political party or even the President.
- But if you go to almost any Q&A site and search for questions about George Bush, you will find that many people are "wrong, uneducated about issues or vindictive".
AnswerWhen he talks in public, he comes across as a muddled thinker, unable to to coherently express himself and when he does, his thinking seems disconnected. There is a whole website devoted to "Bushisms", and it has so many entries that they have subdivided into his mis-speaking by year!
"Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB-GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country." --George W. Bush, Poplar Bluff, Mo., Sept. 6, 2004"
ANSWERMany people find it easier to say someone is "stupid" than to argue about their policies or beliefs. When someone is calling someone else's name; whether that person is a public figure or a personal friend or family member, it is an indication that they have a strong emotional reaction to them.
AnswerThe majority of Americans believe that George Bush is incompetent because he has had an abysmal second term. His first term saw many, many things accomplished, and those accomplishments are undisputed. However, in his second term, his popularity dropped due to many different issues that citizens were unahappy about. As he is the figurehead for our country, a liberally slanted media painted him as the bad guy and people, for the most part, ate it up with a spoon. Any kind of judgment we pass on George Bush's presidency will be heavily slanted either one way or the other, as we allow emotions and passion to govern our judgment rather than cold and clear retrospection. Many presidents of the past that were regarded as horrible are now being reevaluated, many years later, and I believe this will happen with George Bush as well. Until then, I would try hard to ignore the many Bush-hate sites and instead, research his presidency based on pure facts, and not conspiracy theories or slanderous remarks.
The American colonists were seeking independence from Great Britain. In order to have that independence, the American Revolutionary War was fought.

The electors shall meet in their respective states, and vote by ballot for two persons, of whom one at least shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves. And they shall make a list of all the persons voted for, and of the number of votes for each; which list they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate.

The person having the greatest number of votes shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such majority, and have an equal number of votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately choose by ballot one of them for President; and if no person have a majority, then from the five highest on the list the said House shall in like manner choose the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by States, the representation from each state having one vote; A quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice.

Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take the following oath or affirmation:--"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

The President shall have power to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate, by granting commissions which shall expire at the end of their next session. Section 3. He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper; he shall receive ambassadors and other public ministers; he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the officers of the United States.

(for the effect of amendments on this and other Articles, see the related link) This lays out the powers and composition of the executive branch describes the executive branch Article 2 simply states the Executive Branch! Also the President and Vice president make up the Executive Branch!
