My Department of Education has paid education advocacy
groups to produce newspaper opinion pieces, advertisements,
and other public materials that reached audiences
all over the country without revealing that the government
paid for their production and distribution.
with a natural disaster and not knowing what constructive
things I could do exactly, I took the daring and strenuous
step of declaring a day of prayer. We must pray to
God. Was it God or Satan who sent the hurricane? I've
been told by Pat Robertson that there is a large community
of homosexuals in New Orleans! Hmmmm. --from viewer
Cameron, Houston, TX
only President in the history of the United States
(Unless shown otherwise) who visited the site of a
major natural catastrophy and during the visit, joyfully
reminisced about his drinking days of his youth. I
wanted to boost the morale of the homeless, sick,
wounded and dead. So much empathy! --from viewer
Cameron, Houston, TX
only President who has praised the job performance
of an underling and that same underling was immediately
demoted because of his poor job performance. --from
viewer Cameron, Houston, TX
deployment of thousands of National Guard troops from
Mississippi and Louisiana in Iraq when Hurricane Katrina
struck hindered those states' initial storm response,
according to military and civilian officials.
the apopletic John Bolton to the UN during a recess
because the Senate couldn't confirm him. Bolton despies
the UN and wants to dismantle it as the US ambassador
and even the Brits want him gone.--from a viewer
administration violated the law by buying favorable
news coverage of my education policies, by making
payments to the conservative commentator Armstrong
Williams and by hiring a public relations company
to analyze media perceptions of the Republican Party.
efforts to combat Hurricane Katrina suffered near
catastrophic failures due to endemic corruption, divisions
within the military and troop shortages caused by
the Iraq war.
was bad enough that anxious parents of poorly equipped
Army National Guard and reserve soldiers had to rush
out and buy body armor, radios and goggles before
their sons and daughters were shipped out to fight
in the Iraq war. But it's even worse but now Pentagon
under my administration is reluctant to obey a congressional
directive that it reimburse soldiers and their families
for the cost of the military equipment they supplied.
the 14 pardons I delivered yesterday, three were for
drug charges, four were white collar crimes. And amazingly,
one of the pardons issued by your "security president"
was for this crime: Property damage by use of explosives
and destruction of an energy facility; 18 U.S.C. 844(i)
My "No Child Left Behind" sex education
policy (abstinance only) was so ineffective that the
state of Maine told me to keep the money and they
are dropping out of the sex education provision. --from
viewer Clinton, Biddeford, ME
a result of my wars of choice 49,000 veterans of Afghanistan
and Iraq have received some type of medical treatment
and care at a Department of Veterans Affairs facility
between October 2003 and February 2005 with 26% screened
positive for a mental disorder.
Iraq War contributed to the deaths of 66 journalists
and media workers since March 2003, many of whom were
killed by American forces.
prime reason my Iraq war fell into chaos was because
I ignored assessments by the Central Intelligence
Agency that warned of major cultural and political
obstacles to stability in postwar Iraq.
made sure no one would be held accountable for security
failures during 9/11 by having my appointment Porter
Goss formally decline to open accountability review
boards that would have investigated the conduct of
former director George Tenet and other senior administration
officials. The accountability boards had been recommended
in a formal report from the CIA inspector general,
who found grave shortcomings in the agencies pre-9/11
operations. If Tenet had been faulted, he might not
have wanted to take most of the blame himself and
therefore could have implicated me.
consider the plight of a single mother working three
jobs to be"uniquely American" and a source of great
amusement. --from DT1@malakandsky.blogspot.com
handed an embarrassing defeat by Hugo Chavez who was
joined by leaders from other Latin American countries
at the Global Trade summit of the Western Hemisphere
held at Mar Del Playa, Argentina.
administration demoted Bunnatine H. Greenhouse, a
high-ranking Army Corp of Engineers official after
she criticized the Pentagon's awarding of a no-bid
contract to Halliburton for work in Iraq.
Tom Hicks to the University of Texas Endowment Board
where he promptly skimmed vast sums of money. Now,
instead of possessing the largest endowment in the
US, the University of Texas is 2nd tier in endowmnet.--from
viewer Hugh from charlottesville, VA
Justice Dept. warnings that the redistricting plan
in Texas pushed forward by Tom DeLay in 2003 was illegal
and violated voting rights, I made sure officials
in my administration approved the plan anyway.
the media again to sell my agenda but this time in
Iraq where the U.S. military secretly payed Iraqi
newspapers to publish stories written by American
troops in an effort to burnish the image of the U.S.
mission in Iraq.
re-election by the narrowest margin in history for
a second term president in both electoral college
votes and percentage of votes cast (51-47 is not a
mandate). --from a viewer
9/11 Commission issued a follow-up report giving my
administration a grade of "F" for failing
to provide adequate radio spectrum for first responders,
allocating Homeland Security funding to pork barrel
politics not based on risk, failure to make critical
improvements in airline screening, refusing to declassify
the intelligence budget preventing Congress from having
oversight, and failing to set international standards
for detainees suspected of terrorism. The same panel
gave my administration two incompletes, twelve "Ds",
twelve "Bs" and nine "Cs" - and
this grading was generous considering what it overlooked
that it should have been highly critical of.
Illegally permitted the NSA to conduct secret domestic
wire-taps and surveillance of phones and emails without
a court order. I have now committed high crimes and
treason and would be impeached if the Dems controlled
my war in Iraq is draining off resources, the National
Cancer Institute is now only able to fund about 9%
of research applications it receives with almost 60%
of them being valid proposals while at the same time
causing many researchers to give up or leave their
professions for lack of funding.

and I also personally attended many of those executions
so I could watch them squirm and die. --from a

spending in many areas will eliminate $12.7 billion
in federal student loan programs.
my administration the average cost of health insurance
has already increased 73% from $6,300 to $10,000 per

of two expert commissions that spent years examining
the nation's ocean policies gave Congress, my administration
and governors a near-failing grade for not moving
quickly enough to address hundreds of their recommendations.
Told the American people they're at the mercy of the
oil companies so tough luck, it's a marketplace out
there! - from viewer George, Oxnard, CA
administration wasted millions of dollars in Hurricane
Katrina aid by accounting flaws, mismanagement and
an Arab company (with 9/11 links) to manage six major
American sea ports controlling what comes in and out.
In a few months, I am hoping to have Arab companies
control other docking ports in Maryland and other
ship ports along the East Coast. - from a viewer
my second term the U.S. reached a record trade deficit
of $68.5 bn in January 2006, and the rate of increase
was higher than for any other president in U.S. history.
