    Bush sucks. He will be remembered as one of the worst presidents ever IMO. Probably top five when it comes to the worst presidents ever.

    Which George Bush are you asking about?

    If we're talking about dubbya, then I'd say he's done more to harm American foreign policy, the domestic economy and the environment than any other US President in history.

    I wouldn't use the term "hate", but I dislike him, his beliefs, his policy and his administration a great deal.

    edit: On the environment, he's simply the worst we've had since the country began efforts to protect our wild animals and wild places. Not a big deal to many in this country, but I'm one of those that has seen some of the many natural wonders of this great land and holds them dear to my heart. I also, believe that keeping them wild and protected is more important than the timber, oil or gas that can be extracted from them.

    How has Bush harmed the environment? What policies did he put in place that resulted directly in harm to the environment?

    How did his policies result in a catastrophic economic environment. You didn't specifically say that, but I assume that by doing the "most harm" to the domestic economy, then you believe that his policies resulted in a horrific domestic economy. Which of his policies did it, and which portion of the economy did it affect.

    I think you can legitimately make the case that Bush has damaged the U.S.'s relations in foreign policy, although that's not necessarily a bad thing. I'd also make the case that Bush could legitimately be charged with war crimes for his torture policies. I'd make the case that Bush f'ed up the reconstruction of Iraq. I'd make the case that Bush is one of the least eloquent presidents ever. I'd make the case that Bush is a lover of big government, and should not be called anything close to a conservative.

    But, the economy is in great shape, other than the subprime blip, which wasn't Bush's doing. Assuming that you believe the environment is in bad shape, how did Bush cause it?

    I admit I have nothing but my opinion on the economy, however it is my feeling that his deficit spending because of this war coupled with his insistance on keeping his tax cuts has and will continue to cause harm to the nations economic well being.

    As for his record on the environment. Here's a comprehensive list of his dealings on the environment from 2001-2005 in a month by month list.

    http://www.envirolink.org/external.h...1103180.440298

    Many of the damages he has sought to inflict have been blocked by some of the good men in the Congress. e.g. his repeated efforts to open up ANWR to drilling for absolutely no reason what so ever.

    I'm sure you can find the Sierra Club website on your own. On there you'll find even more information on how the EPA, National Forrest Service, and other environmental agencies under the direction of the Bush Administration have sought to repeatedly weaken or destroy previous environmental laws for no other reason than to cater to their big industry pocket liners. If it weren't for watch dog organizations like the NRDC and Sierra Club who fight for our wilderness and wildlife his damage would be much worse.

    If you want to see a specific example of a place he has continued to allow to be damaged by pollution (both air and noise) in direct conflict with a Clinton signed regulation. Go to the parking lot of the west Yellowstone entrance in the winter. If you can breath or hear without difficulty I'd be surprised.

    Don't really care for either Bush boys, just bring our children home and let the arabs kill each other.
