The guy looked at me mystified after I said George W. Bush will be judged one of the best presidents in US history. After all, his opinions are arranged by the mass media, particularly tilted during this national election year as they push with all their hearts for Obama’s ascension to the White House – a task that requires battering poor Bush and every move he makes. Hillary is out, the pundits say (which I doubt), but either way, the thinking goes McCain can’t win if the current regime is discredited.
But consider the facts of the matter. The War in Iraq is not at the top of the problems Americans are worried about. Despite a dozen or more efforts by Harry Reid in the US Senate and Nancy Pelosi in the House – including pulling an all-nighter – the country’s elected national officials cannot pull the plug on the Bush war policy. The hapless anti-war coalition just can’t coalesce – mainly because the people deep down understand we have to do something to answer the challenges of the Islamic terrorists. Iraq is as good a place as any to draw a line in the sand, figuratively and literally.
The Obama and Clinton presidential campaigns didn’t get the memo that the war is not the issue that will elevate them to the highest office in the land. They also blather on about the poor economy and the recession that just won’t arrive, forgetting the valiant success Bush achieved to lead us out of the mortgage-backed securities scandal that rocked Wall Street and Main Street only a few weeks ago. Going to war once again, the Bush White House and the Federal Reserve saved the economy – and for most people their IRAs – by acting immediately and decisively.....
forgetting the valiant success Bush achieved to lead us out of the mortgage-backed securities scandal that rocked Wall Street and Main Street only a few weeks ago.
Bush has been blamed for just about anything bad that has happened in the world since he took office: 9-11; Hurricane Katrina; a shortage of flu vaccine; spending too much and not spending enough, problems at Veteran’s hospitals etc. ad nasuem and he has responded stoically and rationally each time. Under the microscope of history, cleansed of the smokescreen of media bias, the facts will be clear. He was one great president.

allowing the devestation and destruction of a soveriegn nation just so you can dry your SUV, buy your cheap TV and keep eating those hot dogs is truley, an utter disgrace!

I shudder to think of what the future would have to be like if we were to look back at GWB as a great president. I picture it being a cross between Idiocracy and 1984.
