Well, I can't say as I would pin the temperature global warming on him, but...
the global HEAT on Americans? I think he has a great deal to do with that. But of course, Bush is only one of many who have alienated billions of other earthlings.

Can we blame him for anything else that's going wrong too???Please??? It would be very convenient you know. That way nobody will be obliged to take any responsability to whatever action they take. WOW.

You're right Ron, only you and Kerry and Hillary know everything....(Not her hubby Bill...he was actually Lassie in a Clinton suit and did what Hillary ordered until Monica), hey?..she may know more than all of us?

Midnitesun:

Fundamentalist Muslim ire toward America actually dates back to American support for establishing a Jewish state in Palestine.  Read the 9/11 Commission Preliminary Report on the attacks and you can read clearly that the World Trade Center was targeted for not only its economic significance, but also for the Fundamentalist perception of the economic and media influence Jewish Americans have on the economy and information in the West.

Pointing fingers gets us nowhere.  One could just as easily say that Clinton's attempted cruise missile assassination of Bin Laden increased Osama's determination to strike back.  But I think this is wrong also.

It may take ten years or more to see the fruits (fresh or rotten) of Bush's strong stance toward terrorism - right now, I think judgment is premature.

Jim, I would agree that conclusions are premature, but I would hope that judgments can be formed before November's election. We don't have the luxury of tasting the fruit before deciding whether more fields should be planted.

I don't think we will be able to with great accuracy.  I think we're better served by looking to issues that are easier to assess (e.g., economy, education, etc.).  Those, at least, are easier to judge on the merits.

Some things can be judged in isolation, Jim, but not many. Most issues, after all, carry both a benefit to someone and a cost to someone else. Looking at one while ignoring the other is often selfish and always unwise. As just one example, while I'm sure no one would ever try to justify war by its positive effects on an economy, it would be dangerous to blindly accept those effects with no regard to cost. The war touches too many threads to be easily ignored.

Even lacking great accuracy, I think we have to do the best we can to discern truth. As with every major choice we make in life, uncertainty can't be an excuse for indecision.
