I would have cheered because he`s the president. It`s just respectful. I can express my concern about his policy through other means. I think this just makes the USA look even more stupid.

people are quick to criticize when they are not in control...its just unfortunate he surrounded himself with non-nice individuals like cheney and his advisors... i think he would have been alright he just let too many people make decisions for him

Ok seriously, why are there still people saying Shrub deserves any respect? What *hasn`t* he drated up?! Simply booing is quite a nice gesture IMO, he deserves worse... Had I been there, I`d have at least thrown in a decent cussing, lol... there are people out there who still like him? Colbert was right, backwash...

But Skine, the government has not made it illegal to use FedEx, DHL, UPS, and others. Hillarycare would make it so there are no private insurance companies like United Healthcare, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, etc.

Obama probably has the better idea, I don`t think he wants to liquidize the private industries.

For me, I think if you want the government healthcare, you can pay into it and that will benefit those that can`t afford insurance premiums. But if you prefer private healthcare, you can choose that and not have to pay into the government healthcare.

Forcing people to do so is wrong. That`s not the government`s job.

Washington National fans, what do you expect? If he was in Anaheim, Houston, Arlington, Denver, or San Diego he would`ve gotten a standing ovation.

Washington Nationals are known for their bad sportsmanship. It`s not surprising that their fans are living up to that reputation.

In response to the question of universal health care being akin to socialism and communism:

America is full of socialized services. For example there is a postal service. Similar to the USPS, universal health care would be a cheap (read free) alternative, especially for the basic health care operations. In fact, the USPS will achieve practically all of your delivery needs. But other companies exist in the delivery business, providing different benefits than the universal system. FedEx, UPS, DHL and others are able to successfully survive against the "universal" postal service.

Also, check out the system in England. There is a good country that we don`t worry about being Commies, but they`ve had social health care for years.

Yeah...repects someone that has lied to the world time and time again...if he deserved respect, The Colbert Report would not exist... He has gained all his popularity through being a "loyal Bushie" and we understand that that is very funny, because anyone who actually follows Bush to the word, looks comical.

Why the middle east is constantly fighting? Because you say so. Constantly. Despite it being relatively far more peaceful than say the USA:

USA: Korea, Nam, Civil War, WW1, WW2, War of Independance, Gulf War 1, Gulf War 2, Afghanistan, Cold War + more.

Meanwhile the only constant battle in the Middle East, the one with the most news, is the Israel Palestine issue. Fed with American Vetoes and 7 Billion $ annually to Israel, the "most successful economy in the middle east" according to the US, and the 4th out of 10 according to math.

Peace in the middle east would be a lot easier without 3 current wars all involving the USA.

What`s the next question? Why is there so much animosity towards the USA? Geeee, I just don`t know.

Haha, I lied. One more for the night. staberind, you are correct as to why the M.E. has devolved into its current situation. But the fact is that was due to policy after war (with the Soviets whom the U.S. was trying very hard to please), not the war itself.

Rest assured if there was no WWII, it was because Hitler was able to successfully launch his Blitzkrieg. Then, after the final solution, scary enough to say but there may have been no Middle Easterners.

I lied though, there was another way out of WWII. To see Hitler was arming Germany and actually take action and attack him preemptively. Again, the answer is war. Then of course, the economic boost from the war never would have occurred, etc, etc, etc. But the dynamics of the "world of what if" is a discussion for another day.

Yeop, war is great, unless you happen to be in a country thats being attacked by two of the richest countries in the world, thats not a war, thats a tag team rape.
History tends to teach you something, while we are on the subject, does anyone here know why the middle east is constantly fighting? maybe the way the western and us allies divided it up as they saw fit after WWII? strange that different cultures tend to antagonize each other when forced to live side by side by a totally foreign regime.

But my point is the war isn`t the reason why that is so. Other factors are playing into why the economy is slipping, the details of which I`m sketchy on.

In short, wars produce new technology which are then usually adapted into our lives, stimulating economic growth. The internet, made by the military. The GPS system, military. Each of which have played integral roles in our society and in our economy, especially the internet.

Right now, the technology in this war just isn`t being adapted into a commercial role fast enough. Probably again due the strain on the economy. Like many things in life it is a very vicious cycle.

Skine, I`m not saying whether or not a Universal Health Care plan would be beneficial, I don`t know enough about the topic to do so.

But, I do know, Hillary is a terrible choice to base a Universal Health Care program.

You do know that she will force, I will repeat, force, every single American to come under the government healthcare. That means you no longer have a choice to private health insurance. You have to go to the hospitals the government tells you to go to, no matter how long the lines are, no matter how bad you are in need of care.

That is 100% Socialism, and very close to bordering on Communism.

Fourth: "Bill Clinton and Al Gore would be doing worse" and "Hillary is evil" (or something like that).

Response: Bill Clinton and George W Bush have nothing to argue about who would have done better. Each had their own era, and so it`s impossible to judge who would have done better in the other`s era.

Al Gore would have likely have attacked economic and environmental causes early in his presidency, and I doubt he could have screwed up in the middle east any worse than Bush did (and without prejudice against Iraq for bombing daddy).

As for Hillary, it is my personal opinion that she would be the best choice, if we wish the United States to rank amongst the best education and health providers in the civilized world (hell, even amongst the uncivilized world we aren`t doing well).

I`m not studying economics, and I don`t have any interests in it beyond personal investments. But I do know about WWII, and in general, wars and their impacts on countries.

So if you want to reach into your bag of tricks and throw out another reason as to why the Iraq War is sooooo terrible, I`d love to see if I can shoot that down too.

I don`t know where you are being taught, but wars are not bad for the economy. What brought Germany, a country under heavy economic restrictions DURING a global depression out of complete destitution? WAR! Guess what? It helped America too! FDR and his dumbass New Deal pale in comparison to WWII in revitalizing the economy. Utilizing infrastructure that at other times isn`t used is good for the national economy.

Now let`s see if you can wrap your brain around this. WWII was more costly than the Iraq war. Yeah, look at that. Don`t believe me? Read em` and weep.

"Only World War II was more expensive. That four-year war - in which 16 million U.S. troops were deployed on two fronts, fighting against Germany and Japan - cost about $5 trillion in inflation-adjusted dollars." - Source - www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/03/17/MNBVVL9GK.DTL

And yet no one complained about the economic boom of the 1950s. Very strange how that works.

First: "Respect the office, even if you don`t respect the man"

Response: Why the hell would you respect an office that a man who holds no respect with approximately half of our nation can attain?

Second: "it`s become chic to hate Bush"

Response: I realized in 2000 (8th grade) that I disagreed with Bush on most issues, and this was before his doctrines became akin to warmongering.

Third: "One might say there have been two recessions since he has been president"

Response: If even half of our population had taken Macroeconomics, they would realize that taxing the wealthy less will decrease overall economy, while increasing their capital.

Even if he isn`t the best president ever, people should still respect him. He is already under a lot of pressure, and he knows people don`t like him. I would feel so mean booing him like that, because if it was me on the field and people were booing, I would just lay down and cry.

And when confronted by his entire staff saying:

"Hey douche, you`re killing you troops for nothing...and the population of your country hates you because of it...and every country thinks you should recall all the troops....and so do we."

Bush recalls 5000 of them... Thanks!

And good presidents can multi-task. They do not use terrorism to go to war to completely neglect his political duties such as, say, lowering the taxes, promoting the population`s well-being, maybe completing at least one of his campaign promises... But no, not Bush...

Had I been there, I would have boo`ed. Had I been there I would have JFK`ed his ass.

I`m canadian and it`s not illegal for me to say it....I think..oh, just in case "I do not want to kill the president of the United States of America"

As a president, possibly one of the nation`s worse, all things considered.

Although its not yet official, he may very well have presided over TWO recessions. Republican`s only solution: let rich people pay less taxes, that helps out the country...riiiight, because it worked SO WELL the first time.

I hate him as a president, I respect that he is a decent person, I would never boo the head of our state, no matter how much I disagreed. Respect the office. Tell him to piss off once he`s a private citizen again.

-Good Presidents don`t rig their elections...
Then still lose. Then, coincidentally, Florida decides they needed a recount.
Thanks Jeb Bush, governor of Florida and Brother of Georges W. Bush.
-Good Presidents don`t go to war because someone 9/11`ed their country. They go against the culprit. The reason there is a war in Afghanistan is because the people were getting killed in the crossfire...not just members of Al-Qaida, so then the Afghan and surrounding countries realized that Osama might have been right about the U.S, and signed up... Way to go Bush, you promoted a terrorist agency.
-Good Presidents know the difference between AFGHANISTAN and IRAQ!!! Osama attacked, he`s from Afghanistan, Iraq gets involved by matter of Bush logic (AKA WMD`s and Al-Qaida) and then Iraq gets fudgeked up and retaliates, naturally, so then civilians die.

Years go by, Bush knows full well that he`s losing countless numbers of troops to a futile war he is helpless in...

At first I thought it was Rush Limbaugh and was wondering what the hell he was doing throwing out a pitch.

I`m neutral when it comes to G-Dubs. I would have voted for him if able in both elections, but if I had I would have slightly regretted it.

My main problem is that the War is not as bad as people think. And most have the War at the top of their Reasons Why Bush Sucks Lists.

I dislike him because he`s not conservative at all when it comes to the economy, among some others too.
