You'd be surprised how fast people tend to forget the past. Not many people remember the UN's predecessor -- League of Nations.

Realistically, you have to give a presidential term 50+ years to even begin to rate his presidency. Contemporary historians and chroniclers have too many emotions tied into their beliefs either pro or con against a political person.

This is why there needs to be at least one generation away from the person being historically placed to even begin to have a serious study of the his/her work.

You can see the beliefs both pro and con with the small sampling of this thread.

With this all said, I believe he will go down as an average president. Above Carter and Clinton, far below his father.

Only in the last year of his 8th year has the economy turned down. The "war" has turned into a politician's buffet of policy disputes lead by the demoncrats and helped along by Republicans who have aspirations of higher office.

America has had no further terrorist attacks, so we are safe on the home front. Katrina will be a larger footnote than Iraq. Seriously, we let our own people die and suffer instead of helping them. In truly historical terms for Iraq, the death toll of US soldiers is less than a few days of WW2 or even less than 1/10th of the 3 year Korea war or +10 years in Vietnam. Only this occurrence in our times has distorted the view that it is a big deal.

Keeping the stupid and political based comments out of the argument, he's just an average president.

If the elite and the media writes the history then yes he will be. If I could write his history then his faults would outweigh his his tax cuts and anything else.

what Bush will go down in history as will not be a great president.He will go down in history as the worst enemy the constitution has ever had but only the worst.Pelosi and Reed as well as most members of congress and the supreme court will join him.When americans wakeup and start dusting of the rope for treasonious politicans maybe this country will straighten out and become great again.

Yup, only time will tell. Back in WW2, Winston Churchill was very unpopular with the British people. But Churchill persevered and, now, he is seen as a national hero.


very good point. and Churchill was voted out of office in 1945.

i agree with the original poster - there's so much media bias against Bush (just look at the sneering attitude of the leftists at the BBC) , that's difficult for the average person to have a grandstand view.

imho, he will be judged as one of the better,if not one of the greatest presidents.

of course, that all depends on one thing - how Iraq turns out. if it turns into some sort of Middle East version of a Korean or Japanese powerhouse economy, he'll be judged well. If it doesnt work out, he wont be judged well - such is the cruel fate of history.

and while i think he is a total idiot,,,,,,i've seen it argued that at the time reagan was thought to be a total failure,,,but now he is revered and during the primary debates everyone,,,huckster and robme,,,i mean romney spouted his name off and how great he was...i was 3 so i don't know to much reaganomics, but
i can't forsee bush ever being thought of as great,,only the worst


that is a very frightening point. i do remember the reagan days. he was mocked as a senile old man who just sat in the oval office idly while the world worked around him. every once in a while hed give a hell of a speech though apparently. his reganomics was what started our econmic downturn and every pres since has kinda of added something to it. and yet, there they were. using his name as if it were a golden ticket into the general election.

there is a difference between burning books to keep the public from being able to read them, and letting the public burn crappy books to keep warm because they cannot afford to heat their homes thanks to the guy the book says was just awesome!
