President Bush Running For 2008
WEll, we most certainly don't have anything any better running in this presidential election. I do not agree with everything President Bush has done, and especially when it has come to encouraging Israel to give up land to the Palestinians, and some other things regarding Israel. However, I am really concerned how Obama will treat Israel should he become the president. He has already flip-flopped because he made the Palestinians upset with him.

As the Bush presidency is getting further and further along, and it's much harder to sustain unsustainable policies (such as the War in Iraq) merely on the power of personal charisma and misleading rhetoric anymore (such as the WMDs the knew full well weren't there), his approval rating is getting lower and lower as people are learning more and more about how they have been mislead and lied to. Far from being called the Best Prsident Ever, I am fairly certain that George W. Bush will go down in history as the Worst President Ever (at least until this point). But this will be a matter for future historians.

stevenq_God is knee deep in this mess!
Ezek. & Isaiah speak of whats going on right now...
Soon, very soon, not only will the earth be shakened, but the Heavens also!
If this world was to go on(not happening), G. Bush would become known as the greatest President we've ever had...
Don't blind yourselves with hatered for things you don't understand...
If Gods hand is in this(and it is), who are we to say anything...
Would you war against Gods resolve?

Elder said "But, I would still volunteer to assist him in becoming that martyr......."
What do you mean Elder?

obewan said, "If we killed Osama, wouldn't that just make him a martyr?"
Well, that is very possible.
But, I would still volunteer to assist him in becoming that martyr.......
---Elder on 7/28/08|
yes ~ why? I do not agree with all that he has done..but of all the men in the USA we have two men...Obama and McCain to pick from for the next election..pitiful. If they represent the men of this country it is a sad state of affairs.
---melanie on 7/28/08|
--If Clinton had done what he should have there would have not been a war. Osama would be in a box now.-
Elder: If we killed Osama, wouldnt that just make him a martyr? People would follow him even more with the claim that he was in heaven with Allah and his new 7 virgins. Hundreds more would just rise up and take his place, and some other teacher would fill in where he left off. Not to say that retribution is not deserved, but rather that it would not change a lot at the end of the day in all likelihood. I mean we killed Hussein, and look what is happening in Iraq?
---obewan on 7/28/08|
Does anyone actually know there is some clause that would permit the current president to stop the elections in the event of a national emergency? A man claiming to be a prophet descending from the tribe of Judah says God has revealed this to him in the translation of the book of Daniel, and Bush will remain president under these conditions, due to a war with Iran coming up.
---theresa on 7/26/08|
If Clinton had done what he should have there would have not been a war. Osama would be in a box now. He had the chance but was too involved in entertaining himself to look after state business.
How many terrorist attacks have been on US soil since 911?
Hey, how about Obama bowing down to all those Muslims in Iran?
What a team Osama and Hussein Obama.
---Elder on 7/26/08|
War is a nasty business. I don't like it as much, or more so, than the next person. Even God himself doesn't like war, but in order to accomplish His goal for mankind wars must happen. The United States wouldn't be itself if it wasn't for war. What we should do is pray for our leaders, our president, that God will guide them in making the right decisions. As more and more Christians become non-Christians and don't pray for our leaders, our leaders will make rash decisions. Instead of praying for our leaders, Christians are reprimanding or reproving them. Instead of blaming our leaders we should be blaming Christians, eh?
Besides, how do we know that God doesn't have His hands in all this?
---Steveng on 7/25/08|
No for sure. I did not the first two times. Based upon his trillion dollar unnecessary war, I would not for sure now. Also, he tends to ignore rule of law on a lot of issues. Also, he ignores public opinion since something like 75% of all Americans are currently opposed to the Iraq war. It does not matter since he is not running, but I think he hurt rather than helped the conservative cause overall since the liberals are likely to win this fall.
---obewan on 7/25/08|
No. President Bush was the right man for the right moment in history and I praise his service. However life has seasons and it is time for a new, fresh champion of the Christian cause whomever that may be.
---TIMOTHY on 7/25/08|
So Bush stands against abortion? - great. But look at the loss of life his warmongering has caused overseas.
---Bruce5656 on 7/25/08|
Definitely not. He he not a Christian...he is a liar and a crook.
---Pauline on 7/25/08|
Hi steveng, part of me agrees with you on a lot of things. :) However, I have to ask you: if we're the "police" for one oppressed country, why are we not "police" for everyone--like in Africa? Not that I'm for going to war there too--but I mean we cannot be the world's big bad police everywhere and everytime there's conflict. Not enough US soldiers for one thing to go around, barely enough for the wrong war we are currently in. Just my 2 cents or less :)

The whole President Clinton scandal smacks of a psychological black operation. The purpose was to make room for a fascist dictatorship in the shape of his buddy's (George Bush Snr - NWO leader - Satanic Skull and Bones member) family. With the son in power all the evil of Iraq could take place. Not to say that Clinton was good. Read the Clintonbodycount. Clinton and Bush were in cahoots, just like Kerry and Bush were (two Skull and Bones members). They all worship at the Antichrists seat of government in Rome. They all present themselves before their leader regularly.
---frances008 on 7/24/08|
This is a frivolous debate. I'm sure our thoughts can be best used elsewhere.
As for President Bush being a Christian, he is NOT. A Christian would not bow down to other gods like he did in Japan a few years ago.
As for his going to war: there was a list of seven reasons why we were going to war mentioned in the Los Angeles Time three months before we went. The two I remember are one, Hussien was performing genocide using WMD to his own people and two, Hussien had a dozen or so UN sanctions against him and the UN wasn't doing anything about it.
Would you want someone to help you if your president was performing genocide against your ethnic group?
---Steveng on 7/24/08|
I CANNOT JUDGE A MAN BUT pRESIDENT bUSH CLAIMS TO BE A NEW BORN CHRISTIAN BUT EVERYTIME SOMETHING COMES UP ABOUT gOD OR ABORTION OR THE SANCITY OF LIFE I HAVE NEVER SEEN pRESIDENT COME OUT AND ONCE DEFEND CHRISTIANS OR pRESIDENT bUSH OR NONE OF ARE SUPPOSED LEADERS IN wASHINGTON HAVE EVER REALLY COME OUT FOR OUR lORD gOD and savior the only time a politician uses God is when there i trouble
---lawrence on 7/24/08|
Just to let you know Bush called for a prayer panel to pray with him about whether or not he should send troops to Iraq. The way I know this is true is because one of the ladies from the WMU in our church was ask to go to DC and be on that prayer panel.
---evangelistjerry on 7/24/08|
I would not. Don't know much about the man, except He doesn't pray before making big decisions. That's my thoughts on it. For what it's worth.
---catherine on 7/24/08|
Yes, I would.
Because we just need another Supreme Justice to override Roe vs Wade.
The Legalizing of mothers killing their babies has to stop.
How can we ask God to bless us?
When we stabbed the most natural trust.
A baby sleeping knowing his mother won't kill him.
If he can't sleep, how can we?
---Nicole on 7/24/08|
Although I have heard several people express similar concerns, I think it's very unlikely that such a law could be passed soon enough (under 4 months).
Since the president's term is limited by a constitutional amendment, it would require another amendment to allow a sitting president to have a third term. The process to get amendments passed is usually quite slow.
On the other hand, it is much more plausible that the government could concoct an "emergency" (like an "imminent terrorist attack") and suspend elections until it was over (which could be a long time). Neither world war was important enough to do so, but there's a first time for everything, and when there's a will, there's a way.
---StrongAxe on 7/24/08|
For the last few years I have known that there will be some attempt may to change the laws, in order that Bush might serve another term as president. There is a unbelievable undeniable sinister spirit afoot in politics today. In fact a person who says Islam is a peaceful religion is not living in the real world. Torture camps, total invasion of privacy, and "preemptive" strike's are repugnant to this nation and its constitution.
---mima on 5/18/08|
Can't happen. Ammendment 25 or 26
---John_T on 8/3/07|
His word i did not have sex with that women
so in a since he didn't But what he allowed to happen was sin
---Betty on 8/17/06|
Clinton did nothing illegal?
He was having depraved sex with Monica under the table while conducting a government security phone conference.
There were National Security items being discussed while she was busy "being friendly."
As far as WMD, they existed, Hussein used them against his own people.
But if people are so interested we will see them again, when they are used by Terrorist against us.
The mistake was, there was too much time given by the US for them to be moved.
---Elder on 5/28/06|
Clinton's problem was not illegal till he lied about it. His tryst with Monica, though immoral, was totally legal, albeit, not in good taste either. If he had just been honest about it, it would not have been an issue.
Bush has lied to Congress about the WMD, and the result is thousands of innocents dead.
---Madison1101 on 5/28/06|
I agree, TS, but the lesser of two evils is still evil!
---NurseRobert on 5/19/06|
Ok, Mike, how did Pres Clinton having illicit (not illegal, she was a willing adult participant) affect YOU? President Bush's little excursion into Iraq has cost this country thousands of lives and billions of dollars FOR WHAT???
And what did Hussein threaten the world with that Kim Il Jong didn't? As far as WMD's Where are they? Was Hussain a monster?? of course he was, but that does not justify the direction Bush took us.
---NurseRobert on 5/19/06|
I absloutely would NOT, and I was the biggest Bush supporter of them all, in BOTH elections. Do your research, the man's true colors are starting to show. I am sickened that I helped put him in office (not that either of his opponents would have made me feel any safer) Anymore, voting in the presidential elections is a matter of voting for the lesser of TWO EVILS
---T.S. on 5/19/06|
alan: I do not support our venture into Iraq. I do wholeheartedly support our actions in Afghanistan. At this time in military history I favor "ultimatums". Such as total destruction of the enemy that attacks us. Piecemeal wars now as always just play into the hands of the military-industrial complex.
---mima on 5/19/06|
Pres. Bush may not be perfect but he hasn't been caught having illegal sex at work. How can a nation re-elect a man who is such a womanizer then condemn a man who tries to make our nation safer by taking war to the ememy. Have we forgotten what Iraq was doing to is people and threatening to do to the world? Also no WMD's?. What is a SCUD if not a wmd? What about the mass murder graves in Iraq? How quickly we forget Sadaam's threats to "the great Satan"...U.S.A.
---mikefl on 5/19/06|
Yes, he talks to God and listens. Also, because since 9/11 he was kept me safe! I kinda think Pres. Bush knows what's going on with him in God's plan. Anyone else?
---Nellah on 5/18/06|
NurseRobert--I've been following elections since before Nixon was vicepresident and don't remember anytime when there seemed to be such acrimony between parties as now. Pardon a "good old days" comment, but the reason may be partly because people, even politicians, tended to be more polite then (at least in public...before we had 24 hr. news on TV.) OK, maybe "give em *heck* Harry" (Truman) was an exception, but I think even he'd be shocked at the intensity of malevolence now.
---Donna2277 on 5/18/06|
Donna, both parties have been at each others throat since before Nixon.
To answer the question, not only no but "heck" no. I thank God for laws that keep him from running again.
---NurseRobert on 5/17/06|
I agree with christina. Issues effecting the moral standards I live by and plan to instill in my children are what I base my decision on. Abortion - in that, how is our nation better than the Hitler regime when we are mass murdering our own unborn citizens? Then the new found tolerance for homosexuals being taught in our schools (you should see what the state of Califorina is trying to do). Also, the new found opression of Christianity. Can I vote for someone that will not fight these things? God Forbid.
---chris on 5/17/06|
No matter who is running, I pray about who to vote for, and look at what if any faith they proclaim, and issues closest to my heart, such as abortion. A politician who is christian and against abortion is my first choice.
---christina on 5/17/06|
I didn't vote for him the first two times. Why should the third time be the charm?
---Jack on 5/16/06|

---Jack on 5/16/06|
A U.S. president is only allowed two terms, so he couldn't run if he wanted to. It's only 2006, the election is in 2008. How can anyone say how they will vote when they don't even know for SURE who will be running?! From the moment Bush entered the White House, both parties have been at each others throats. The Senate and House have been so preoccupied with politics, they'd rather fight among themselves than do the work they are paid to do. I'm sick of them all.
---Donna2277 on 5/16/06|
Mima ... I thought you supported the Iraq adventure? If anything was pre-emptive, that was ... at least the pretext at the time was that we went in because of the threat of Saddam's WMD
---alan8869_of_UK on 5/16/06|
No I wouldn't if I could vote in the US.
The guy is a fake and a dreamer.
