George Bush should be in jail.

This is how I would like it to happen: My opponent presents his case, and I present mine. He closes the debate. Only one rule: No rudeness. This is an intellectual debate, not insults being given to each other. I welcome anyone who wishes to argue with me. I wish you the best of luck....

Was George W. Bush good for America, and for the wider world?

kweef
RoyLatham

Structure is as follows: 1.Present arguments 2.Rebuttals 3.Voters I believe George W. Bush is NOT good for America, and the wider world for three reasons. 1. He did not win office in a democratic way 2.His policies leave much to be desired 3. Intelligence is not one of his virtues 1. He did not win office in a democratic way. It would seem that in a democratic society where citizens are allowed to vote, that they would get the final say in electing their leader, right? Not in th...

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...

Barack Obama is, overall, a worse President than George W. Bush

I, like most, have been watching the news recently: all of the tea partiers, all of the libs, dems, republicans, conservatives, the whole nine yards. And all I see are two sides of the political spectrum shouting that each other are wrong for x, y, and z. Words have been thrown around like socialism, Marxism, un-constitutional, fascism, un-American, so on and so forth. Those insults were directed at both sides of the aisle. Glenn Beck is saying Obama comes from a Marxist family, but then there's...

George. W. Bush was a better president than Barack Obama is

I resolve that the previous president of the United States was a better president than our current president. I will attempt to provide the most objective reasoning for my position and expect my opponent to do the same. We have agreed to avoid semantics and I would like to spend this first round simply agreeing that this is so. In the next round I will present my argument. Thank you for the debate and best of luck....

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...

"Non-Americans Should Not Come Onto This Website and Give Opinions About George W. Bush."

patsox834
Hunton711

Full resolution: "This should be an American-only website, and non-Americans should not come onto this website and give opinions on "American issues," as defined by my opponent to be issues like George W. Bush." Through messaging, my opponent put forth the following comments, which I personally find to be absurd: <"this should be an american only website but no ppl from britian and canada stick their noses in on american affairs and they say bush is bad and then u say u r against patriotis...

George Bush was a Genocidal Maniac

My opponent in a different thread made some extremely wild accusations and assertions about President George W Bush. They range from: Gross Human Rights Atrocities and singular responsibility for the outsourcing of work overseas, to being incapable of doing anything other than what Vice President Cheney ordered be done. While, I do not believe GW Bush to have been the best president, he certainly wasn't anywhere near as bad as my opponent (or the left wing talking heads in the media) make...
