George Bush Was a Good President

I would like to open up my argument by saying that I believe that President George W. Bush did a great job as president and does not deserve all of the criticism he received when he left office. I will support this statement by using these arguments: a) Bush reacted to the best of his ability in the 9/11 situation. He worked fast and efficiently under enormous amounts of pressure. b) He always did what he thought was right. Bush did not cave into the demands of Congress and the people, he...

George Bush is an idiot

Understand that I am Con in this debate. In one of the Forum threads, http://www.debate.org/forums/politics/topic/4459/8/ ddo member emmalmalcolm made the claim "Bush is actually an idiot. Obama is a brilliant lawyer, professor, speaker and author. You can disagree with his policy but that's just fact." The claim is common. I challenged emmalmalcolm to defend the claim, but emmalmalcolm, despite having been on the site, let the challenge expire. So now I am opening the challenge to anyone who...

I have just joined Debate and hope that I follow the rules as well as etiquette. I have looked at some of your positions and man we can debate a lot. I looked at your statements in the same as this debate title and you are the kind of person I learn from debating. Your statements are based for the most part on facts, you do not throw barbs and seem to be willing to stay on task. There are a couple of things that appear not on point for me. 1. There are not many people voting and I question if mu...

George Bush is a good president

George Bush has destroyed our nation. 1. He implimented No Child Left Behind, overcrowding our good schools and still leaving our bad schools to be bad. 2. He created the Iraq War for the purpose of finding weapons of mass destruction, stopping terrorism, and promoting democracy. They vote, they have no WMDs, and terrorism will NEVER be stopped, and Iraq has nothing to do with it. 3. He lowered out economy significantly, lower than most African nations. 4. He raised gas prices, making tr...

George W. Bush should have won Bush v. Gore

abard124

On January 20th, 2000, a man was sworn in as president of the United States of America. This man lost the popular vote fair and square. He also would have lost Florida if all of the counties had counted their votes consistently with their standard [1]. The Florida supreme court even called for a recount. By a series of political maneuvers, however, this issue made it into the supreme court. Issues like this are not supposed to go to the supreme court, as they are state law [2]. Somehow, this wen...

Is george bush the worst president in the history of USA?

George Walker Bush is fundamentally dishonest, perhaps evil, but mostly a liar, he has lied large and small, directly and by omission -- The only weapon of mass destruction is Bush's mouth. His actions and decisions affect the entire world. They have not been the best of decisions to date. Every time he's at a meeting, the word "war" is always said. "War, war, war!!" Why? How about the word peace? Whenever there's a threat to national security, he says "OK, we're getting attacked. We must hav...

Was George W. Bush a good President?

George W. Bush is a great man indeed. He has cut funding from schools and libraries, opposed abortion even in cases of rape or incest, taken away half of the Environmental Protection Agency's budget, the list goes on. But the one blunder we all took notice of was invading Iraq. He invaded on the pretext that there were WMD's there, but the U.N. weapons inspectors found no trace of them whatsoever before that. Oh, cut it out George, we all know what it was for - OIL. That's right, petroleum to ke...
