"...Glen Maxey that the bill represented an opportunity to improve the governor's image in the environmental community; its passage would "make Gov. Bush green for the presidential primaries." The bill was passed in May 1999 and signed into law by the governor, and a year after it went into effect in September of 1999, it has done little to clean up the air..."
"...17 fired off a letter to Prez George W. Bush, urging him to end the feds' "heartless" policy of harassing seriously ill medi-pot patients who use the drug in compliance with state laws. The Bush Administration has reportedly threatened to target New Mexico state officials with federal prosecution in the event that New Mexico lawmakers passed a medi-pot law – which they did earlier this year, making the Land of Enchantment the 12th state to pass a law legalizing the use of medi-mari by seriously ill patients..."

"...If you have an opinion on General Land Office Commissioner George Prescott Bush – in particular his status as a leader of Latino-Americans – today is your day to express it.

"...Dean came to public prominence for giving insight into the workings of the White House, and former White House press secretary and Austinite Scott McClellan has followed suit with his recent book, What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception ("belatedly," noted Dean). While McClellan wrote about the Texans in the Bush cabinet (see "Who Did He Serve?" June 20), Dean sees another side of the equation: the veterans of Nixon's cabinet and campaign machine who survived to become pivotal in Bush's administration..."

"..."Why," Bill Minutaglio wants to know, "do people think I'm writing an authorized book on George Bush? I've had Rolling Stone and alternative weeklies from all over calling to ask me if it's true."..."
"...Who says George W. Bush has wrecked the economy? He -- and his supporters in the right-wing media echo chamber -- have spawned an entire industry devoted to ridiculing and skewering his administration, his policies, and/or him personally..."
"...Stone’s young George W. Bush (played with gusto by Brolin) is a Horatio Alger hero in reverse: Born into wealth and power, he chooses to wallow in the mire of fleeting romantic affairs, intellectual indifference, meaningless day jobs, and alcohol (especially alcohol) rather than buy into his role as the standard-bearer of the Bush legacy..."

"...Among the many panels and workshops held Sept. 15-18, Naked City dropped in on one asking who would do more for small businesses: John Kerry or George Bush? Judging from the volume and aggressive questioning of some attendees, one might give the edge to Bush in this demographic, although most of the 100 or so who listened in on the panel were more reserved in expressing opinions..."
"...With that, in response to the minority's right to be protected, I ask: Is America not a democracy, and does a majority not rule in a democracy? America needs political leaders like George W. Bush that are willing to apply the laws of the Bible to the law of the land and stand up for what the majority adamantly supports..."
"...Dear Editor, Not quite sure where to start, but Adler's ["Nukes Are Back!," News, Jan. 16, 2004] tirade against the Bush administration's plans for possible nuclear weapons usage is full of holes..."

"..."There are a lot of questions and they need to be answered." That was President Bush weighing in not on his dishonest and disastrous war against Iraq, but on the far more pressing controversy of our time. That is, whether CBS anchor Dan Rather had used possibly forged documents regarding Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard in the late Sixties and early Seventies..."
"...Dear Editor, While the American media examines the credibility gap surrounding George W. Bush and his false claims of Iraqi WMDs, a new and unsightly image of the Bush White House is emerging. Let's review the past behavior of this new Bush White House and let's assume that Bush and his boys were lying to us all the time, about everything. First – why rush a war with Iraq? It's now unarguable that Bush knew Hussein wasn't a nuclear threat..."
"...Changing the way politics is seen on the Net: priceless. In December 1998, Zack Exley, a then-29-year-old database programmer and former union organizer from Sommerville, Massachusetts, discovered that the domain name gwbush.com had not been bought up by the Bush campaign..."
"...To the editor, I have lost all faith in the intelligence and objectivity of the Austin American-Statesman following their endorsement of President Bush's re-election.

Bush back in the day..."
"...I thought highly of his style of bipartisan leadership and the outstanding team he had assembled to advance his agenda, but I had never imagined becoming a part of it. Members of Bush's team were understandably bright, outwardly humble, and they seemed committed to serving something larger than their own interests – probably the reason they all seemed to work well with one another..."

"...President Bush today denied there was any connection between Iraq and 9/11. "We've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with September the 11th."

"...Dear Editor, It has become clear that the Bush administration either lied about the need to invade Iraq or was incompetent at interpreting their own intelligence data. While I'm delighted that the Iraqi people are enjoying so much freedom between car bombs, wasn't it the job of our president to protect the U.S.? Hasn't anyone told him that bin Laden is a thousand miles from Iraq? Looking at this the way any good boss would, it's time to tell George W..."
"...That's what the demonstrators, organized by the Democracy Coalition, were chanting on April 27, 2001, as they walked from the Bullock Museum over to the Governor's Mansion to protest an Austin visit by George W. Bush, installed in the White House a couple of months before by the U.S..."
