- Martina 8/20/08: "What an amazing interview with John Nichols. I could have listened to his incisive, articulate commentary for hours. He connected the dots other so called experts more often than not fail to do. As far as Bush is concerned, the only thing he is getting 'right' is his hearing the drum beat of history being written as he exits. He and the administration he put in place have profoundly damaged America."
- David 8/19/08: "With regard to the topic of What Bush Got Right I think this must be one of the world's slimest volumes. His policies have lead to the virtual looting of the country by special interests and perhaps put the country into a process of significant economic and political decline. He has put into place the machinery of police state surveillance and operational precedents for the elimination of individaul Constitutional rights. He has managed to convince the world that the US is both greedly, stupid, and rc.eckless with regard to global interests. On the other hand on a recent visit to Washinto D.C I did occasion to personally see his cute little dog Barney briefly take care of his 'business' on a brief excursion outside the White House under the watchful eyes of several no doubt Secret Service Agents. Good job Barney!"
