  • Not really.
  • Sometimes I do, but he made his bed so he can sleep in it. He just didn't have what it took to do the job right. He should have known what he was getting into and if he could handle it before he even tried to run.
  • some, i think he has had to deal with some unusual horrific events in his presidency (September 11 and Katrina) i do wonder how well he would have done if he had not had these catastophic issues to deal with.
  • More so for his family; I try to imagine if my father was president and having to see him constantly mocked and ridiculed for all the bad decisions he's made over the years. At this point I think a lot of people are happy that his term is over and for all we know so is he :)
  • That smarmy self-righteous nincompoop? The president that was a nightly feature on Letterman because he could barely speak English? The draft dodger who can't wait to get the next war started? The guy who stole one if not both of his elections? Who presided ovfr the worst economic downturn in decades? Yeah, I pity the fool
  • Not in the least! Because of his sippossed leadership this country is in worse shape than when he TOOK office. If all the votes had been counted the way they should have he would have lost.
  • I do, its been a very rough eight years and most of the problems are directed at Bush as the source whether their true or not. Theres only so much a human being can take.
  • No,is there a reason I should feel sympathy for him ?
  • yeah you know I would have bet that Iraq was further along on thier WMD program too
  • No why should I?
  • Yes I do. I believe he is a good man. The problem with our country is that people have forgotten about God. I believe he tried to be a light in the darkness but the darkness has overcome the world. That is not Bush's fault but he is being blamed for it. Given the time we are living in, I feel he did the best he could.
  • I did at first. He wasn't responsible for 9/11, but what he did afterwards was inexcusable. He lied to the American people about a reason for war in Iraq(WMDs), when that turned out not to be true, he lied again(Al Queda), and when that one turned out to be another lie, he lied a third time(Iraqi Independence). The actual reasons were for revenge against Sadam who put out a contract on George Sr's life, and oil money, for Cheney's friends. He took a national tradgity and used it to promote his own political agendas. Patroit Act? No 400 page bill is written in just days. That was sitting on a shelf somewhere, waiting for an opportunity. Huricane Katrina, was a disaster, and instead of dealing with it, he froze. Human? Yes. Presidential? No.
  • Yes I do. Especially after I saw the movie, "W." It was based on a good part of the truth. I thought the movie would have been funny; but it was sad. It seems like he did everything in his adult life to please his parents, especially his father. They wanted Jeb to run for governor of Florida. They seemed to discourage him running for governor of Texas. Also, when he was younger and in his college days, his father enabled him by cleaning up every mess he ever got himself into. Other things done in his presidency were wrong and his fault. He picked the wrong war in the wrong place. It was all about him getting revenge for his father(another way of him trying forever to please his father). Sadaam was not Osama bin Laden. I don't think he ever thought that his presidency would have helf all of the misfortunes that it did!
  • nope, not at all.
  • why would i?
  • He's rich and he's not in jail. I doubt that he needs or wants my sympathy.
  • Yeah. Poor man. Totally sincere. He did try. He did his best. But the best wasn't enough. I feel sad.
  • No, why would I yo?...
  • Im not sure what sympahty there is to feel... He supported his party as Obama will his but come on does it really matter? The Tri-lateral commission is the one really in charge. where is the sympathy for them..
  • Sorry ummm no! Does he feel sorry that he lead such an incredibly disastrous war that have killed thousands of American Soldiers? Quite frankly, I am not sure how he sleeps at night
  • no. Reasons? a ton of them.
  • Like if he was hit by a bus? Then no.
  • why? what as he done to warrant my sympathy? I feel sorry for the people who have lost their homes and jobs and everything they have worked their lives for thanks to him being in office but he will be the last person I ever feel sorry for.
  • Maybe a little. He has to take some/a great deal of responsibility for the mess we're in, but he is also in no way completely responsible...yet he is shouldering all the blame, as anyone in his position probably would have to. I imagine that he will be just as glad to see January roll around as anyone else, more so, actually.
  • No I don't. I guess I should..he clearly doesn't realize everything that's happened on his watch and how so much of it was unnecessary. I leave that to the psychologists and historians to mull over. :)
  • Yes and no. Yes because When he returns back to Texas, hes going to have a bad rep.
  • Not in the least....why would I?
  • Not one iota.
  • No, he's done his 8 years and will be forever covered by secret service with a great paycheck
  • Yes, he has kept us safe for the past seven years and I don't think he get's enough credit for it.
  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL......:D:D:D:D:D .....good one Zack! :)
  • I'd say the feeling is more like indigestion,or acid reflux.
  • Sympathy? Why does Bush need my sympathy. Low approval ratings from a populous that elected Obama and that cannot stomach a war lasting more than a year? He has my full energetic support and no need of “my sympathy”. He has kept American soil safe while at the same time lowered taxes and I am proud of him.
  • Mabye pity... ...no, not even that. I don't feel anything for him anymore except an urgency for january to come!
  • Actually, yes, I do feel a certain amount of pity for him. Not because of people who badmouth him (I'm one of them), but because he is an insecure, fragile, failure of a man who has not made one single beneficial contribution to this world that I can think of. I feel sorry for him when I wonder what he must think of himself, knowing that he is little more than a puppet for his dad's buddies and the big wheels in the world of organized religion. I also have to wonder if he has ever honestly loved or felt loved by anyone in his life. Let the downrating begin.
  • Not at ALL, He and Chenney and His whole Administration should Rot in you know where for what they have done to this great Country. Ed C
  • I feel no sympathy for GWB or CHEENEY or Their Administration and what they did to this great Country, They should dig theselves a hole and bury themselves, never to be seen or heard from again. Ready Eddie
  • Nope. I'm sure he feels satisfied in his "faith" that he did the right things.
  • Yes. Although he will go down in history as one of the worst presidents ever, he was not in my opinion the one calling the shots. I believe he is a genuinely good person. I would like to see how any of you people posting comments would fare as president.
  • Fuck George Bush, he is a lying piece of shit who had sex with his cousins.
  • i dont feel sympathy for him. bush was the man. f what people think. the majority of people no nothing about politics and government and rely on the commi news network for all their information.
  • After the way he screwed the United States tax payers - THE HELL WITH GEORGE W. BUSH. I thank God every day that he is no longer our President.
  • Like Gordon Brown is to us George W Bush was to you an Embarassment!!! Out with the old n in with the new!!!
  • No, I cannot and will not feel pity for this sorry ingrate who did not take control as president and instead let Cheney and a bunch of other dipshits run our country into the ground, destroying our economy, killing 1,000's of our men and women, one of which was my best friend's fiancee for oil and non existent WMD's to hell with him and the entire Bush Admindistration and Family.
  • yes I do he is a very good man who stood by his principles during very trying times I think in retrospect History will judge him kinda than people do today
  • Yes I feel sympathy. He is hated nationally for an unfortunate situation out of his control. He is considered stupid when he is actually extremely intelligent (as all presidents basically were) and will only be remembered fondly by the minority of the population. I for one praise him, and thinks he did a great job as president.
  • I feel some sympathy for him because i feel he still does not see how very wrong he was on a number of things. That kind of blind, stubborn faith is very childlike and , as we can see by the number of lives lost by his command, very dangerous. i don't think Bush is an evil man. Deluded? yes. Insecure? Very! I do , however think that he believed the theoretical end justifies the means. Not evil, but scary as fuck when a guy commands the most powerful military in the world. I wish him well in retirement
  • I don't think he cares about the opinions that are received from the media or of those who would hate him regardless of what he had done because of political affiliation. I would venture to say that he is quite secure in what he has done to protect this country and to try to spread freedom. I'm sure he worries about the economy and knows that it is not his fault alone, though he was at the wheel when the tires began to fall off.
  • No sympathy. None whatsoever. Im just amazed he got re-elected.
