At home now. A couple beers in me. I'll reply to this last one because I was on dihall earlier about it...
1.) As someone else mentioned, this came from a TOTALLY biased site. Every single one of those things you listed is skewed and only tells half the story. Tax cuts for all levels of society? True. BUT, lets actually look at the numbers of his 2003 tax cut, shall we?
***88%: Percentage of American citizens who will save less than $100 on their federal taxes as a result of 2003 cut.
***$42,000: Average savings members of Bush's cabinet are expected to enjoy this year as a result in the cuts.
***$42,228: Median household income in the US in 2001 (compare with what I posted above).
***All in all, 60 percent of the population will get only 8.5 % of the tax benefits, whereas the top 1 percent will reap 38.9 %.
"huge tax break" dihall? Yeah, for who? Think about it.
Lets also look at his "signs arms treaty with putin." What it leaves out is that he blatantly withdrew from the old nuclear treaty (anti-ballistic treaty), setting a precedent giving any country the right to pull out of nuclear treaties (i'm sure you remember that debacle, hoardes of security specialists were/are decrying it as anti-productive and harmful). Him signing the treaty with Putin was a public relations joke. It's a farce of "treaty." Nothing but ink on paper.
Those were the only two that really leapt out at me because of how ridiculously skewed they are. As for the rest, I don't see one thing that any person would not sign into law if it came across their desk, so I don't believe it's debate fodder for our purposes. Kerry (or anybody) would just have easily expanded "Amber alert," etc...
Tjhat and i'm somewhat intoxicated now... till tomorrow!!
