Send us your additions

Accomplishments as president:

  • Gas prices set a record high in March 2004 during my administration because of energy policies and the war in Iraq.
  • Thousands of embryos being discarded each year by various labs can't be used for research because in August of 2001, my administration decided to limit stem cell research to existing lines, which aren't nearly enough to fill the needs of the research community. [1]
  • Will only testify before 9/11 commission with Cheney and not under oath.
  • Despite pledge to do whatever is necessary to fight terrorism, tried to eliminate a $12 million request by the IRS, which says it needs the small injection of new money "to increase by 50% the number of criminal financial investigators" necessary to do its part in the fight against terrorism.- from Daily Mislead, 4/1/04
  • Squashed voter-approved, state referendums legalizing marijuana for medical purposes; ordered the DEA to raid "Cannabis Compassion Centers" in California and force the sick and dying to obtain their drug of choice from the black market. - from a viewer
  • Launched "Operation Pipe Dreams," a nationwide crackdown on headshops. Jailed the infamous Tommy Chong for selling bongs on the internet. Accused sellers of bongs and glass pipes of supporting terrorism All this is nothing short of cultural silencing, or, if you will, cultural genocide. - from a viewer
  • Erred twice on a claim regarding the amount of mustard gas Libya had, claiming it had 50 tons when in fact only 23.6 tons were found. [2]
  • Failed to befriend Iraq's grand Ayatollah Il Sistani, while he openly thanked the American people for ridding them of Saddam Hussein, spoiling America's first opportunity to be midwife to the birth of a new and openly friendly Islamic State which could have brought down hate of America within the Muslim communities and withdrawn some cause for terrorism against the U.S. - from a viewer in Quebec
  • According to economist David Rosenberg, "pain at the pump has wiped out more than $20 billion of the coming $40 billion in tax refund checks." - told to CNN's Lou Dobbs Tonight, 3/24/04
  • Gas prices can be expected to rise 17% since I took office in 2001.
  • Signed Unborn Victims of Violence Act [UVVA] on April 1, 2004, which redefines the legal start of life and chips away at abortion rights. A person can now be prosecuted for killing or harming a fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus during the commission of a crime.
  • My official campaign sold clothing made in Burma, in violation of the US embargo against the military dictatorship - reported first in Newsday and then in The Progressive, May 2004, p. 11.
  • Tried to smear and threaten both Richard Clarke and Paul O'Neill when their books came out reporting on my administration's failures to heed warnings on Al-Queda and my pushing a war against Iraq early on in my term and then again shortly after 9/11.
  • A nonpartisan Congressional Research Service said my efforts to keep Richard Foster, the chief Medicare actuary, from giving Democratic lawmakers his projections of the bill's cost -- $100 billion more than the my administration was acknowledging -- probably violated federal law. [3]
  • Allowed the trade deficit to swell to an all-time high of $46 billion in March as a stronger U.S. economy stoked Americans' appetite for foreign-made cars, TVs and other goods. [4]
  • Contributed to the highest gas prices in 20 years by allowing an increase in oil-refinery mergers to go unchecked since taking office. [5]
  • Ohio has lost more than 200,000 manufacturing jobs since my taking office including 1,300 workers at Timken Company where I told workers in April 2003 my tax cuts would spur the economy. - from Daily Mislead, 5/18/04
  • When all foreign and domestic flights were grounded after 9/11, my administration allowed the bin Ladens and other wealthy Saudis to fly out of the United States and now we are refusing to answer any questions on this subject to the 9/11 commission or anyone else who asks us about this. - from Daily Mislead, 5/20/04
  • During a 14 month period from 2002 to 2003 when the Republican Party was playing up patriotism, its fund-raising and vote-seeking campaign was performed in part by two call centers located in India. - from Daily Mislead, 5/21/04

Even today, the New York Police Department has been denied much needed health grants. - from Daily Mislead, 5/24/04
  • My administration was charged by a Congressional investigating committee of violating federal law by trying to pass off ads pushing Medicare changes as news reports. Taxpayer dollars were illegally spent to produce videos that in essence were propaganda designed to build support for the Medicare law that passed in Congress in 2003. [6]
  • Appeals Court in Oregon ruled that my attorney General, John Ashcroft overstepped his authority in ruling that doctors in Oregon can't help terminally ill people die pursuant to state law. [7]
  • My administration was sued by 57 African-American Secret Service agents for discrimination in hiring, promotions and discipline. [8]
  • Got my education reform bill (no child or teacher left standing) passed into law, a law which will provide every child in America with an appropriate conservative education, as he who writes the test controls course content. - from a viewer
  • Passed over two US companies, Lockheed Martin Corp. and Computer Sciences Corp., to award a contract worth as much as $10 billion over 10-years for border security to Accenture LLP, whose parent company, Accenture, Ltd. is headquartered in Bermuda. [9]
  • On a recent trip to Rome, asked a top Vatican official to push American bishops to speak out more about political issues, including same-sex marriage in an effort to aid his re-election. [10]
  • Gave new meaning to the term "gunboat dipomacy": appointed John Negroponte, one of the architects of the Iran-Contra affair--the drugs-for-guns scheme that sold arms to Iran in its war AGAINST Iraq--as U.S. Ambassador to Iraq. - from a viewer
  • Questioned by federal investigators for more than an hour as part of investigation into the leak of identity of CIA operative, Valerie Plame. So much for my claims of bringing dignity back to the White House. [11]

  • In April 2004, lifted the 30 year moratorium on Mexican Trucks operating in the United states. Opened the door for Mexican truck drivers to be hired and use their trucks, that do not meet American Standards for air quality, to operate in the United States. Mexican truck drivers work for far less than US truckers do, and the trucks themselves, which are diesel powered and unregulated, spew CO2 and sulfur dioxide into American air.[13] --from Lindsey, a viewer in Kent, WA.
  • Only President known to have used subliminal messages in an T.V. campaign ad. In the 2000 campaign the word "rats" was planted in association with democrats--from a viewer
