Maybe - I have no idea; I've never met or known the guy, but probably George Bush isn't a horrible human being, even though he carried out some of the most executions of capital punishment in Texan history as governor. Maybe not even a completely illiterate one. He's just far too incompetent to run a nation.
The reason it's screwed America over so badly is because the corrupt people within the Clinton administration had limited power, due to Clinton's limitation of executive powers (Just for anyone new here: these are the ideas of Baron de Montesquieu with separation of powers. Our government has three equal powers: legislative (makes the laws), executive (carries out the laws; this includes our President, his administrations, and all programs like the FBI and NSA), and judicial (interprets the laws).
Well, due to President Bush's incompetence, these corrupted people have been able to exert powers and expand the executive branch to sizes not seen since the Nixon Administration (and we all know what happened to Nixon). One of these main corrupt people is Dick Cheney, who I believe everyone should really be afraid of. The man is little short of evil, and so are his little buddies (cough, Donald Rumsfeld, *COUGH*), and with Bush as their puppet, we've suffered 9/11, invaded Iraq, lost lives in Hurricane Katrina, held back from acknowledging global warming until this year (WTF?), not ratified Kyoto Protocol, created tax cuts that benefit the rich over the poor, and essentially raped the Fourth Amendment. The first, ninth, and tenth, suffered some harassment, too.
Well. The overall point of this definition is not to single George Bush out as a disgrace to humankind, because maybe he's not worse than the majority of human beings (key word: maybe; I don't know this for sure). Nonetheless, whether's he's a bad person or simply a little stupid, he's not good enough for public office and our nation is sinking with his smiling face on the sail and the Administration at the helm.
Oh well. At least since people are fed up with Republican hypocrisy from his tenure as President, Democratic ideals will flood America and from there, split again into the factions of the conservatives and the liberals. At least that way, we will make progress for more than just the corporations and less progress for corrupt activity, yet still keep some conservativie values.
Just please. Anything but this man and his administration...
What more can I say? George Bush is probably the worst president we've had since Richard Nixon, just seems like this one's missing a step upstairs. Once he's out of office, maybe people won't hate him so much and he can prove to be a decent human being.
