Really America, Bush set a record for the lack of vetoes with 12 ... only one occurring before the dems took congress in 2007. Still I'll ask you the same question ... give us a list of the liberal/socialist/marxist bills that Bush failed to veto?

Really coyote, then give me a list of the drunken sailor bills passed by the democratic congress ... just the ones that Bush didn't find his veto pen for, to make this easier for you.

If this had only been Fannie and Freddie, then the bailout would've only been the $150 billion they ended up getting ... not the $850 billion more needed by Wall St.! What's really amusing is that Treasury Sec. Paulson had a plan to ease regulations even more for Wall St. Mr. Paulson conceded in an interview with the Wall Street Journal this weekend that the plan actually represents the administration’s wish list for easing financial regulation in the wake of the heavy-handed regulatory response to financial abuses uncovered in the Enron and other accounting scandals in 2002.

Well some of them had to try to make up for voting Bush into office ... twice! We woulda been better off had McCain won in 2000 and had never heard or remembered the name of George W Bush.

And whose fault was it for Bush refusing to listen to his own party to fire Rumsfeld before the 2006 election rather then waiting till AFTER they lost control of congress to the dems?

Well thankfully for you they changed the number of terms a president could serve because the clown serving now would've crushed Bush in 2008!

Really, Bush deserves credit for surging troops into Iraq in 2007 ... wasn't that testimony of Gen. Shinseki that we would need several 100,000 troops to invade Iraq in 2003? A number pooh poohed by Rumsfeld until he was finally let go in 2006? Didn't Bush also hire Gen. Garner to over see the transition in Iraq who recommended working with the Iraq military and government until Bremer was brought in and promptly fired the entire military and government! This only being turned around when Gen. Petraeus began working with the Sunnis that helped make the surge a success. If Bush is so intelligent ... then why did it take him 4 years to institute these recommendations?
