What would YOU have done differently?

With all the criticism towards Bush going on lately, Id like to know what YOU would have done in his shoes?

Keep in mind, the massive team he has behind him, acting on the most recent intel, and the situations he was handed.

After 9/11? What do you think the right choice was?

Tell me what you would have done differently to lead this country.

  • That's hard to say, nobody really knows what intelligence he had at the time. I would take anyone off the map if I had the intelligence to prove who bombed us. Take no prisoners.

  • I wouldn't want to be President for anything. What responsibility.

  • I WISH Bush had been able to do something about illegal immigration, and about getting us drilling for oil in Alaska and along our coasts ... but I imagine that he had to give in to liberals on those issues so they would go along with what he needed for policing terrorism criminals with military forces. A couple of times liberals actually threatened to block $$ for our troops to have protections and supplies, and Bush couldn't risk that - both because a military man KNOWS you don't let down your men, and because if our military has to retreat and is no longer keeping the fight in the countries where these terrorists are based, then the terrorists will have a chance to once more bring the fight into the US ...

  • The thing is we don't know what all went on, Bush did everything he could IMO to do exactly what he said he was going to do. He kept us safe and that's the most important thing to me. Bush couldn't do much with Illegal immagration because of congress and the senate

  • I would have pissed my pants. I think Bush did the best he could given the circumstance. Everyone is quick to judge him but considering my reaction on that day I know I wouldn't have been able to react at all.

  • I have been watching this question and I find it hysterical that ALL those women on here who shamelessly bashed bush and made nasty, uncalled for "bush" jokes are not answering this question! So few answers from the people who think he did so wrong!

  • oh and I don't think he did a hell of a lot wrong till the last few months (stupid bailout). I think he did the best he could with the hand that was dealt him.
