1. This only works if the tax relief was beneficial. The tax cuts had no effect on the poor, helped the wealthy, but never trickled down.{1} If it never trickles down it doesn't help the American people.
2. The war was unjust, the speed of Sadams fall is irrelevant. Self defense is the only justified reason for war. Iraq was not self defense, at least not directly. The war was easily avoidable.{2}
3. Al Qaeda is definitely smaller, but their attacks continue on Christian monuments.{3}
4. Doesn't matter, it didn't deliver the results.
5. Tried is the key word , no results it doesn't matter
6. Immigration rates have risen the same amount throughout his term.{4}
7. DNC studies have shown America is less safe under the Bush administration.{5}
8. The last two years of his presidency had a terrible record, and the job rate slowed under his administration.{6}
9. This passes new regulations which hurt jobs. They attacked and hurt many gas companies.{7}
10. I give that to you.
11. No child left behind hurts children who learn at different levels and hurts overall education. Literacy rates as well as other education statistics have gone sour since its passage.{8}
12. Explain, too vague to refute
13. His trade policy Hirt us, helped china, and doubled trade deficits.{9}
14. Explain how this is good...
15. How?
16. How?
17. And the results where failure, trying is irrelevant
18. And the results where failure...
