What do you think of President Bush's performance as President so far?

I'm not pleased with President Bush's domestic policies, environmental policies or his position on reproductive rights. Of course, I did not expect to be pleased with these aspects of his presidency.

I just got notification in the mail that my tax rebate will be coming sometime next week. I can't help but feel that this hush money given to make me look the other way. I still can't believe that this guy is president, just goes to show what a political machine can do. Environment, defence, a woman's right to control her reproduction, the tax cut (which in the long run is really going to benefit the wealthy). - I just feel like the wool is being pulled over all of our eyes.

I think President bush is doing a good job. But as always he is getting blamed for things that were done in the previous presidency that he cannot change yet or ever. I think he will do well.

I like the idea of my $600 rebate.

I try NOT to think of President Bush's performance as president so far (or in the future).

It's much too soon to know. Presidents need time to establish themselves.

I honestly don't pay much attention, but there are some interesting things going on with taxes that sound good. However, my opinion is unqualified. There's a lot more to governing a nation than what meets the eye.

I personally think a little humility would do the man some good. I think that he's too prideful and that will probably lead us to war..and he's business minded, not people oriented and that scares me somewhat.

Highly amusing, but quite worrying too. He seems like a backward, mind-numbingly stupid white trash redneck and I'm convinced that under his rule World War III is an actual possibility.

I think he's doing a good job

Still can't believe this guy is president. Feel like the whole tax refund is nothing but hush money. The faith-based initiative a way to funnel even more funds to the Christian right (don't tell me funds will go to the Islamic day care or the Pagan women's health care clinic, because they won't). On a more pragmatic level, the guy wants to defund the program that is currently paying my salary.

So far it's ok. I mean, the united States has blown up plus we are getting $$ in the mail soon. Whew-hew!!

I think President Bush is doing a sucky job. He only cares about money and not about the wellness of the people. Also he is a dumbass who doesent even know the names of other foreign leaders. He has raised the gas prices and is ruining the econonomy. He also threatens people with his power to do things his way.

I live in Canada, so I am indifferent.

His performance. F. F. F. F. From the begginning it's been an F, and it's still an F. Is there a such thing as F minus.

Anjel, 20

I think "performance" is the key word here.

Ry, 23

He hasn't screwed up yet,so that's good. He hasn't really done anything either. I think he's going to be one of those harmless, unmemorable presidents.

Johanna, 18

I've caught a lot of flack for this,(and I'm sure I will here also)but I believe that President Bush is doing a great job so far. To state it simply, I believe he has some wonderful ideas that could turn out to be of great benefit to the citizen's of the U.S. As a loyal Republican, I am proud that my vote went to George Bush in November.

He's all I feared he would be. Evil sonofabitch.

i still think gore won

I don't follow politics so I don't know too much about what's going on. But I DO subscribe to some environmental newspapers and according to them, Bush is not doing at all well as far as environmental issues are concerned.

Heaven help us if Dick has a heart attack. The thought of W running the US government is beyond scary.

"President" Bush has already managed to end all possibility of global cooperation in reducing greenhouse gases through his opposition to the Kyoto Protocol. He's managed to deprive women of the right to choose by forcing federally funded healthcare operations not to provide abortions. His generous tax cut has served to make the rich richer, (yay) and will likely throw our nation back into debt. He's appointed a bigoted Attorney General, and is on the road to ending the possibility of important medical breakthroughs to treat all sorts of deadly genetic disorders. Apparently little groups of stem cells from human embryos are more important than actual living beings. Excuse me while I barf.
