He's not so bad | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/23/09
It seems to me that Marxist theory has managed to push all other reasons for war aside in the last 50 years, leaving only economic reason. Whatever happened to Nationalism, or Social Darwinism, or even normal disgust in atrocious acts? Like it or not, the Iraq War, whether it was for Oil or to fight terrorists or whatever, did a good thing. In my opinion, Bush is one of the least deserving of the have heaped upon him in the history of the world. He probably did decide to invade Iraq for humanitarian reasons, but Vietnam and Watergate have scarred the American psyche so deeply that I believe that it will be many more years before we can trust anything at face value again (not that that is necessarily a good thing, a grain of salt is always helpful)
Honestly people... | Reviewer: Zashiwara | 3/19/09
Okay...Bush is a human. Humans tend to make mistakes he isn't necessarily "stupid." He isn't "the worst thing to happen to our country." First of all: Iraq had just about the worst, most unstable country in the world. Bush saved lives and brought joy to a depressed and totally screwed nation by having our military there to help them. And really...Obama? Nowhere near the best option for this nation. He is a great man I will not deny, but simply because he is "change" is no reason for him to be praised like he's sent from heaven itself. Really, there should have been a none-of-the-above option on the 2009 ballots and they just get a batch better for presidency. Also look at the other parties. Dems and reps aren't the only cars at the dealership...look at everyone. You aren't going to get a second car for another 4 years. People moan "Oh but not enough people vote for'em." Yeah? If you inspire people and they each inspire 3 people and so on and so forth, soon you got 30 more votes. Then 90. then 270. See how that spreads?
Good song though. Yeah, like you Dannyboy, not too fond of the lyrics, but just change a few and you've go something good there.
Um... | Reviewer: Emily | 3/15/09
I'm not neccessarily the biggest fan of him but, here's how I viewed Bush's response to terrorism:
Well, for someone put in such a position as him, he did as best as he could. You can't blame him for trying. What would you do if a terrorist attacked your 300 million followers and they all came crying and complaining to you to do something about it?
Oh, c'mon guys. You can do better than this. | Reviewer: Alex | 3/5/09
It's for the American and Iraqi soldiers and terrorists. It's for a corrupt government and the ignorant people that supports it.
That Muse would sing a song for Bush, what a superficial thought. Get real. The ones moving him are a lot more intelligent and greedy than that ugly little man.
freeeeeeeeeedom | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/3/09
You can't blame America for having a bad leader, everyone has one once in a while. For the past eight years I have hated living in America because of Bush, so that in school I didn't even say the Pledge of Alligence. However, Barack Obama is a sign of tremdous change in not only America but also the world. He is a sign of hope and that America can once again be the sign of freedom. I hate to argue, especially over such debatable topics like this one since I do know that Bush was a bad president. Bush was completely single-minded, but by stereotyping Americans as fat, lazy, and stupid then you too are close minded just like him and his administration. I'm proud to be American because of what our founding fathers stood for.
b.t.w. more than half the people I know are underweight or average
The state of the Union is weak. | Reviewer: K | 2/23/09
Well here we were thinking this was about fighting Al Qaeda, but let's get real. Opportunism was all it was. Military operations that had been drawn up by the Pentagon for strategic reasons and of course for imperial/mercantile reasons.
Look , I don't pretend to know every reason the criminal Federal government went in there, but I know what we were told was a complete farce.
Anyway I have my doubts these will still be the United States of America in a decade. There will still be states, but whether or not D.C. has any influence is questionable.
The state is a sovereign entity first and foremost and D.C. get its authority from the states, not vice versa. Lincoln was a tyrant who began the disaster we have today by usurping the Constitution. Don't believe everything you read in the history books written by the victors.
Ignorant People | Reviewer: Eli | 2/23/09
I'm sick of people who say all Americans are stupid, fat, and lazy. You think we're ignorant, but just by believing these stereotypes, you show that YOU are the ignorant ones. I do not, and never have supported Bush, Cheney or anyone else in the Bush administration. I am liberal and I think George Bush is by far the worst president we have ever had, and has not contributed anything to our country over his entire 8 years as president. All he's done is brainwash a helpless American population into supporting the war in Iraq (keep in mind, that there was still an enormous percentage of Americans who never supported the war in Iraq, including myself). And stealing an election didn't hurt much either. Watch the DVD, "Stealing the Vote" (it can be found anywhere online) and you will see the horrible things that went on during the 2000 election to ensure Bush became president, and Republican power was restored (i.e. the exit polls in florida had gore ahead 52% to Bush's 48%, and the final results came in Bush 53%, Gore 47%. In addition, entire counties of votes were disregarded, as more voters turned out than ever before. In some places, voters waited for as much as 16 hours to vote, which shows what determination people had that year, and the 2000 election was just a slap in the face to everyone who voted and a disgrace.)
Once Bush got into office there was no stopping him, Cheney had always had an agenda for Iraq, to set it up as a sort of colony and take control of their oil resources. Once 9/11 came around, it was the perfect excuse to exact this plan and Cheney easily convinced the complete moron that is George W. Bush in his plan. They claimed that they were putting troops into Iraq to find who was responsible for 9/11 and punish them. Did the Americans care who it was? NO. Americans just wanted to see that SOMEBODY got punished for these despicable acts, and Iraq was the scapegoat. You know, maybe we're crazy, but in America we have this crazy notion that we should believe the president when he tells us something, I guess we're the only ones.
And as for that idiot from Argentina, no one gives a fuck about your country. The fact is that no country in the world could survive without us, either directly or indirectly, including Argentina. I'm proud to be an American, especially so now with Barack Obama as president, and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in the world. We've contributed more to this world in the last century than any other country in the world, and our domination is so great, that countries don't care if we pay back our loans or not because they know that as American economy runs, so does the world economy. The last 8 years were an aberration and I look forward to sealing our country again as the greatest in the world.

Tell me something. Why do you think George Bush is so great when anybody in the world with a brain hates him? There was an almost audible sigh across the world when he finally left the Whitehouse. And in my opinion he's only leaving it with his head held high because its the way to be in case you have any shoes flying in your direction.
Did he get shoes thrown at him for no reason? I think not.
Oh and one more thing, if war is a horrible thing and should never happen, why does America give arms to countries in turmoil to feed this violence, hmm?
Why does America think it has the right to get involved in everything that does not concern it?
Dannyboy is a God | Reviewer: VincentMeyers | 2/16/09
Dannyboy, I would just like to say thank you for putting what I was thinking in more articulate words. When I was reading you're review I couldn't stop my head from nodding at every sylable. You have put new hope into my heart about the human race, if there are more people like you out there, then maybe we arn't doomed just yet.
Thank you for reviewing, im going to put your review on my binder and read it out loud in my Gov't class. (My teacher is so anti-war, she puts some of these other reviewers to shame.)
Dumb pop lyrics | Reviewer: Dannyboy | 2/11/09
Fantastic music, but bad lyrics.
This band is British, but the lyrics are about the US. If they're referring to Blair (the lapdog, as the twits like to call him), then they're referring to Bush.
@holyyakker...I'm curious, in all your apparent wisdom, as to how the US "obliterated" the continent of Africa's infrastructure? Huh? Oh, I get it. You're 12.
America is the greatest force for charity in the world. Not debatable, folks.
I love America and I love George Bush and what he did by taking the fight to those who have used the freedoms given them by a civilized society to attack it and eat it, parasitically, from the inside. It is they who I hate. It is they, who are going to hell if our God deems anyone worthy. Don't blame some notion of "policy" -- blame those who seek to extinguish innocent lives through Islam and the Verse of the Sword. Hate them for seeking your destruction. Hate them for destroying your freedoms.
Stop chanting the vacuous 'illegal war' mantra. It was legal as per the UN and was almost unanimously supported by Congress and most of the idiots who are now against it. Bush didn't do anything wrong, as was shown by the bipartisan 9-11 commission.
Hussein, a terrorist himself (ask a Kuwaiti, ask a Kurd), a violator of 17 UN sanctions, a torturer, a funder of Palestinian suicide bombers, a man who gave asylum to Abu Nidal and offered asylum to Bin Ladin, had it coming. And his death was poetry.
War is ugly. Thankfully, war in Iraq was won--so quit dwelling on how much you wanted to see the US fail. The nation is free from a homicidal dictator--it's free from the mass executions and rape rooms. They're free to prosper and return to glory. And the United States is their biggest ally.
That's what warms my heart.
You know what else does? What warms my heart are the US snipers in Afghanistan and Iraq who tap their feet to songs like this one, as they carry out the Lord's work.
