A country whose soldiers marched row by row into German machine gun fire in the beginning of World War 1. 500, 000 French soldiers died this way in The Great War. This is the same country that is ridiculed today for having a 'cowardly' military history.
42nd president of the United States of America. In his first term, America was hit with a vicious terrorist attack on the world trade towers and the pentagon. At first, America hailed him as their commander-in-chief because it was a difficult time. Popular opinion turned against him when he declared war on the nation of Iraq on the grounds that the nation had weapons of mass destruction, was linked to al qaeda and was under the leadership of a cruel dictator. When no weapons of mass destruction turned up and no link to al qaeda was found, he was even more heavily criticized. Election 2004 would require a hard push against his opposing candidate, John Kerry. Bush made a move to ban gay marriage that gave him the support of the religious right. His hard campaigning in rural America locked his victory up against an opponent who was running a poor "Anybody But Bush" campaign. His second term is still in progress.
Michael Moore criticized George W. Bush for reading My Pet Goat to children instead of acting immediately to do something about the terrorist attack.
