    Would you vote for him over Clinton, or Obama? Both, either, neither?

    If you could go back to 2000 or 2004 would you vote for him?

    Yes and yes. Same thing as 2000 and '04; my vote for him is more a vote against his opponents.

    NO!! I didn't vote for him in 2000 or 2004 and wouldn't vote for him this year. Eight years of Bush in the Whitehouse is why we have the GOP trying to give us McCain, they thought eight years of Bush had us ready for the liberal Gulliani, and when they found out the voters weren't quite ready for that, they decided that McCain was maybe the next best liberal to help continue moving the party to the left. If they continue this trend there we will never see a conservative GOP candidate ever again!

    In a heartbeat! :thumbs: I think Bush would be better than any of the candidates we're seeing in this year's election!

    No way. Bush has only hurt the country.

    I voted for him in 2004, and I wouldn't do it again.

    I would vote for him again in 00 and 04 given the choices given. If he could run this year, I would vote for someone else in the primary (except Giuliani, Romney, and McCain). The two term limit is a good thing.

    I wish that Bush had picked a VP in 04 that was a strong conservative, attractive, healthy, that could have stepped right into the nomination.

    Bush run again

    We remember good presidents by what they did. We remember bad presidents by how long it takes to clean up the mess they left behind. Few, if any of us, will be alive by the time the mess Bush is leaving us with is cleaned up.:tonofbricks:

    I would not vote for George W. Bush in 2008. I would still have voted for him in 2000 and 2004.

    I totally agree, and if more people would pray for him instead of complaining about him, our country might be in better shape.

    You're probably right. I can only hope they will extend Mr. Obama the same courtesy when he is elected President.

    If I wanted to dig up former Republican Presidents to run again, I believe Reagan, Ford, Eisenhower, and even Nixon would do better than this one.

    Absolutely! The only reason he has gotten such a bad rep is because of the media indoctrination telling America how bad he is while they embrace everything liberal.

    See entry above. I would vote for him over and over again. He will be the last good president this country will ever see. From this point on, we will see the influence of Satan more than ever before in our government's history.

    Let's see...

    In 2000 vs. Gore.....Yep, Bush in a heartbeat.

    In 2004 vs. Kerry....Yep, Bush in a heartbeat.

    If he could run again in 2008 vs. Obama or Hillary....Yep, Bush in a heartbeat.

    Voted for him in 2000 - regretted it.
    Voted Libertarian in 2004.
    WOuld not vote for him in 2008. Not sure who. Definitely Obama over Hillary.

    Uh, who exactly is this alleged "they"?

    What you (or me, or anyone else) think of President George W. Bush, Sen. John McCain, Mayor Rudy Guiliani, or anyone else is really irrelevant to the question I ask, here. Or whether or not any of us would vote for any or all of them, for that matter.

    Since over half of the delegates to the Republican and Democratic Party Conventions, where the nominee is selected, are determined by primaries, the collective culprit in the major party selection still happens to be "WE", not some undefined "they".

    That is specifically true in Florida, which just as Kentucky, does have a primary. My state simply hasn't weighed in yet, unlike Florida which has already, and doesn't until May 20, 2008.

    Doesn't mean I'm all that thrilled about President Bush, for I am not, but I do consider the alternatives.

    And I don't see any Harry S. Truman, Theodore Roosevelt, or Abraham Lincoln on the horizon, currently.

    Unfortunately!
