    More's the pity. Bush did us great harm.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It's almost like you think he sits in his office and dictates everything he wants on a whim...

    And you feel like the only people who inhabit your country, are people with your views and he's the only person of 300 million people that has his views...

    No...he didn't. He will be remembered well one day.

    Never has a president been attacked with such unwarranted vitriole as Bush.

    I didn't agree with much Bush did, but I think he will be judged much kinder in the future than he is now.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Yes he did, but we'll never agree on that so I won't bother justifying my view on that.

    He's already remembered well

    Absolutely agree here. I by no means am a fan of Obama, and think he's done a number of things that are not going to be good for the country in the long run. That said, its ridiculous to start slapping the "worst" or "greatest" ever line on people in less than 20 years after they've been gone. To truly determine such you've got to honestly and objectively look at the scope of their actions and time in office and see what materialized and what didn't. We live in such an immediete justification world, and one that is so hyper partisan, people are always to quick to leap and make historical absolutes about people without any honest and legitimate means of doing it.

    Its ridiculous to accuse George Bush, Barack Obama, or hell Bill clinton, as being the worst or the best President ever. Its just too short of a time period to accurately do such. You may suggest that you think in the end they will, or that you think history will end up judging it in one way or another, but to answer it as some kind of unquestionable absolute is poor foolishness.

    Which is why I'm shocked, utterly shocked, that some of the biggest hyper partisan party/ideology line hacks we have on the entire site are doing just that. Shocked I tell you.
