  • Flamer question!
  • It doesn't! He is my President too.
  • Doesn't bother me. It's just not anything I would say. +1
  • I am right there with you. http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/440776
  • it doesnt bother me, i just dont get why at all. i totally resent him, im embarassed that hes is the spokesman for our country
  • You may be proud of, who you choose too. It doesnt bother me, in the least bit. Why are you proud of him? I dont know why you are getting downrated, that is childish, express your viewpoints.
  • Doesn't bother me...Does it bother you that I just really don't care for him:)
  • It's doesn't bother me, it just suggests you're like-minded with him and don't care about the negatives. It guess what does bother me is one sidedness.
  • G'day Mans Man, Thank you for your question. It doesn't bother me. Regards
  • I don't have a problem at all. He best described my feelings on 9/11/01.
  • it doesn't. on the other hand i have too many issues with his policies to be proud of him. whatever works for you, it's not like either of us are right or wrong really, that's why it's an opinion =)
  • It bothers me because you are not qualifying your statement. It is one thing to be proud of the president, but you would need to back this up with facts. I haven`t seen much of what George Bush has done that would merit such a statement.
  • It doesn't. Its your opinion.
  • As long as I don't have his picture in my wallet, say it all you want.
  • I'd say it would bother me because you are conveniently ignoring that this war monger also started a completely separate war that had nothing to do with 9/11 to fatten his wallet with the blood of American soldiers and the people in Iraq. Or that he helped to lie to the American people to get them behind going to Iraq. As far as Afghanistan goes, anybody would have reacted that way on 9/11. Anybody. I'd also like to point out that I'm a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. I was in the military on 9/11/01.
  • It doesn't bother me at all. I would find it amusing and consistent with Bush himself if you reiterated that sentiment next February. ;)
  • It doesn't bother me at all but when there's a good and qualified President in office one doesn't have to ask if it bothers someone or not.
  • I wouldn't beat around the bush either, especially since I am not a liberal, and a defacto Bushman. Btw, I just coined that term, so don't steal it!
  • Doesn't bother me as long as it doesn't bother you that i think he's the worst president i ever heard of.
  • I have absolutely no problems with that. Whether you like him or hate him isn't my problem, why should it be?
  • His approval rating is under 30%, so he is doing a bad job of leading the country.
  • Because I can't see what there is to be proud of. What good has he done? Honestly?
  • I voted for George Bush. I am not ashamed to say that. When the Democrats come forward with a choice that doesn't force me to choose between the lesser of two evils...I might entertain the thought of voting outside my party. Looks like they've struck out again. A compulsive liar, whining woman (gender not important here for me) and an overachieving racist (yes I said it...he is what he is) are not much of a choice stacked against a war hero who bled for this country and has proven his willingness to reach across party lines to do what he feels is best for this country...to me the choice is simple. (McCain gets my vote)
  • George bush has been a mediocre president. not because of his policies but because of his communication skills. he's a moderate republican Reagan was far more conservative so was his farther. being able to inspire the populous is one of the most important jobs of any leader. he has failed to do this through out his presidency. his speeches are lackluster his delivery S****. he took a 90% approval rating and threw it away for loyalty to rumsfeld, rove & Libby while at war. he let the new york times lie about him and distort the truth repeatedly. his pick of Ashcroft for AG was down right dopey. yes i'm proud of him as my president just as i was of jimmy carter. but boy will i be glad when he leaves office i'm sick of defending him.
  • Hey, it's your opinion and you're entitled to it. As long as it doesn't bother you that I can never say the same and he can't be gone soon enough.
  • I have so many friends in iraq for nothing, except to die for oil.......... bush is just like his dad his dad wanted the oil from iraq now bush wants the oil. We wouldnt be in this war if it wasnt for bushes family. 9/11 was a cover up they showed pictures from the wrecks and the metal beams that supported the towers were cut clean cut at an angle. You only see those kinda cuts in demolitions of buildings in construction now tell me why you think I hate bush and his decisions. I support my troops but not my president get his ass out of office and safe our money and taxes and i gaurantee the gas prices will drop
  • I dont like idiots
  • It doesn't. My entire family is staunchly conservative republican. I am used to, and can accept people who have polictical viewpoints different from my own. To be blunt, I don't like the beleifs of the republican party, it's members are just as human as I am, and deserve to be treated as such.
  • Hey, it's your life. Like who you want.
  • I agree , I think he has done the best that he could with a democrat congress getting even for the way Bill C was treated and a Republican congress that did nothing when they had the power to do so. please follow the money, Hatred for W is just part of the distraction while they reach into your pockets its not oil, it's power , money and greed on both sides of the Isle yet we contiually allow our selves to be distracted ,gas is lower here than almost anywhere in the world except the middle east , check out the taxes and see whose pocket they are going in
  • You can feel the way you want. It dosen't bother me. I just utterly disagree and am discusted with his run in office.
  • it doesn't bother me..just as it shouldn't bother you when i say i am not proud to call him my president
  • It bothers me mainly because George Bush has caused America thousands of lives, a reputation, and trillions of dollars.
  • Same here mans man! High five!!
  • It doesn't bother me at all. He was liked well enough by a majority of your countrymen to be elected to a second term as President, so a lot of people must share your opinion of him.
  • He got rid of Saddam so I don't think he did a terrible job.
  • It dosen't bother me at all. What does bother me though, is saying he committed war crimes or was behind 9/11.
  • Meh, doesn't bother me. I don't support him, but I think what makes this country so great is one word, freedom. The freedom for me to have my opinion and you to have yours.
  • Because George Bush is a liar and a thief. Example: the Iraq war. He lied to start it just so he could steal money from the poor (raise taxes) to fund it.

  • It doesn't. Long live freedom of speech!
  • Doesn't bother me. Why should it? I don't agree and I would love to know why you're proud but unlike he seems to think - everyone has the right to their own opinions and feeling. +4
  • It doesn't.
  • doesnt bother me. I dont like dubya, for many reasons, but that's me.
  • Because he does more harm than good.
  • I am also, actually very proud! :D
  • I would say the same thing. I am proud to call him my President. He hasn't done everything right, but it would be extremely unfair to expect absolute perfection from any person who takes the job. It is routinely considered one of, if not the, most difficult job in the world. This is a man who came into office under very unusual circumstances after an unusually close election. He came with an interest in reform, co-sponsoring No Child Left Behind with Ted Kennedy. After 9/11 President Bush fought back, breaking up the Taliban and severly weakening them. He went after the tyrants of the world, ousting Saddam Hussein from power and giving freedom to millions of Iraqis and Afghanis. Because of his actions, women can vote and girls can go to school. Because of him there are no torture chambers and people being dragged through the streets because they oppose the regime. This is a President who used the materials at his disposal to track down terrorists and allowed for the maximum security available, bringing together the FBI and the CIA for the first time to share information due to the PATRIOT ACT. This is a President who has preserved large pieces of land and water through legislation he signed. This is a President who has fought for the right to life by signing the Partial Birth Abortion ban (that Obama voted no to). This President sought to negotiate peace and disarmament with North Korea and Iran before seriously considering war. He has had some progress in the six party talks with North Korea. This is the President who lifted an executive ban on offshore oil drilling, which has resulted in huge declines in barrel prices ever since. Congress should put politics aside and follow his lead on that. This is the President who decided to find a humane compromise on immigration reform so that the problem could be addressed. He did so with great opposition from his own party, putting the interest of the country ahead of politics. It wound up dying in Congress, because the bill was too much compromise for most people. President Bush has not been the subject of great scandal as his predecessor was, although he has certainly not avoided controversy with some of his policies. He has brought a lot of personal dignity to the office, I think. He is principled and doesn't bow to every political pressure. So I agree there is much to find good about President Bush, the first son of a President to win a second term in office (and the first with a clear majority since his father). In the end he may not be perceived to have been one of the greats, but probably won't be seen as one of the worst either. I believe he was the right man for the job in these times.
  • It does not bother me one iota.
  • I am too. I disagree with almost everything he's done in presidency. I voted against him twice. I still believe that 2000 election was a sham and should've gone the other way. However calling him my president makes me proud because it infers I'm an American citizen. I wasn't born one, my family and I had to work for it. Mainly my parents, but we earned it. The citizenship brings me pride, the office brings me pride far more than any individual ever could. So I'm not bothered at all.
  • It doesn't bother me, it's good to hear someone with some respect still exists.
  • I don't really care. I'm not one of those people who try to make you think the way I think.
  • It dosn't, I'm used to people being irrational about politics.
  • He is an embarrassment in his lack of control of the english language, let alone everything else that has gone on. You can be proud of whomever you wish, it doesn't bother me, it astonishes me.
  • Becoming a U.S. President is a phenomenal accomplishment. Screwing up the perfect opportunity while in office is another. I am not proud what he did while in office and there are too many significant events and faux pas' that will be written to support these views. His lack of foreign policy experience ruined our credibility and capability acting as the supreme Superpower, defender of human rights, advocate of maintaining the balance of power in the free world. This important status vanished under his watch and it will take generations for the U.S. to recapture this stature earned after the Cold War ended under Reagan. Clinton's act also tarnished the image of how a President could easily abuse the Executive Powers for one's own selfish acts. We need a new face who can bring our status back to the forefront and restore the position of U.S. President to one of respect, recognition, and signficant strength to use these powers to restore stability back in the world. You asked!!!!
  • It doesn't bother me, the thing is I don't understand your statement. How can you be proud of a man that has shamed us throughout the world? Have you traveled lately? If you have you should know how all other nations view us and our country and that is nothing to be proud of. Anyhow he is your president not mine!!
  • Because you voted for him - twice! And are ready to vote for McCain too
