Bush Plans Return to Texas on Inauguration Day

Considering the anticipation and preparation for Barack Obama's Inauguration it comes as no surprise that President Bush is ready to jet out of town. The White House has announced that President Bush will go straight to Midland, Texas after leaving Washington on Inauguration Day.

The President and First Lady Laura Bush will leave Andrews Air Force Base and head to Midland (which is Laura's hometown) for a welcome event. They will fly in one of the jets he used as Air Force One during his presidency.

The couple plans to spend their first night away from the White House at their ranch in Crawford.

Because it is a renowned medical journal, its authors and editors are very aware of the potential for bias accusations; because it is a medical journal, its authors and editors are aware of what would and would not be considered legitimate sources, information gathering techniques and analysis by a core readership that is steeped in scientific process. They were very aware that their numbers would be closely scrutinized and questioned. If you read the study, you'll see that the information is more carefully broken down than you claim.

Does being a world renowned journal of medicine make it immune to bias of any kind? No. I've also noticed that the death toll cited in the Lancet is for all civilians, and all those cited weren't necessarily caused by Americans, but caused by the American presence. To me, that is a bias. That's like saying the 250,000+ civilians killed in WWII were the result of American involvement in the war.

"And yes, ignorance is Bliss. Don't you think?" I'm almost sorry you added that, unless you were pleased to have demonstrated my point. Because you're wildly off base AGAIN. The Lancet is NOT a 'very liberal anti-war publication'. Whoever told you that might have been setting you up to look foolish. The Lancet is one of world's leading medical journals, founded in 1823; it's considered one of the "core" general medical journals, along with the New England Journal of Medicine, the Canadian Medical Association Journal, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and the British Medical Journal. Its impact factor is currently ranked #2. As or more credible than the AP; certainly less likely than the coalition to have a bias or conflict of interest when it comes to the number of dead Iraqi civilians.
UnDave35 UnDave35 8 years
That's an interesting question Steph. It appears that the number killed in Iraq is dependent on which study you decide to go by. If you go by coalition estimates, it's around 43,000, Iraq has the estimate at 86,000, The Brooking's index has it at 115,000, and the "Lancet" (a very liberal anti-war publication) has the number at 426,000. Since the AP has the number at around 44,000, that is the one I would be most pursuaded by. And yes, ignorance is Bliss. Don't you think?

Dave have you ever done any research on civilian deaths in Iraq and how most people there have been killed. Otherwise, you're a prime example of ignorance is bliss.

FYI, the bombs our military drop, does far more damage than suicide bombers...

Well, I am not looking forward to Bush returning to Dallas. He will be living about 5 miles from my job, and there is a great chance that I will eventually see him around in my line of work. Of course it will give my parent's friend a chance to power wash messages to him on their back deck, for him to see from the sky as he flies to Crawford every weekend. Now, what will I live for once he is out? Well, I'll just bash the people that feel the need to blame everything that Bush's administration has been responsible for, on Obama, immediately.
UnDave35 UnDave35 8 years
The debate there is who killed those civilians? I don't remember any US soldiers dropping suicide bombers amongst the civilian population.

But let's not worry about the nearly 100,000 Iraqi civilians who have died. We only care about American lives, right?
UnDave35 UnDave35 8 years
The difference is the Americans that died in Iraq signed up to protect the US, and their interests, unlike the 3000+ people who died on 9/11 who were innocent civilians. Those in the military were able to take a few enemy combatants out as well.

I can see someone saying things about Bush when it is in reference to the actual topic, but you know people do make big jabs at Bush every chance they get. Where is is not so much for Clinton. And isn't it funny, when referencing opinion about a topic, on this thread Tiabia thinks that we should speak of all the internet... where as in the polygamy thread, it is ONLY about sugar sites... I get it now. We will go by her rules...
