    • Expanded the role of faith-based and community organizations in after-school programs.
    • Was the first president to get elected to have a DUI conviction, proving that anybody could be president, regardless of past misdeeds, and providing that you found Jesus.
    • Saved America from the "Clinton Recession" that was starting it's slow creep in the late 1990s, with tax cuts for the rich.
    • "Country-pop" genre of music made a triumphant resurgence during his presidency, moreso than at any time in modern American history.
    • Christian "megachurches" experienced a huge boom during his presidency that survives to this day (albeit with lesser influence), despite President Obama's stubborn "War on Religion."
    • Provided a "moral contrast" to the sexual sins of the Clinton White House.
    • Pushed through THREE raises for our military. Increased military pay by more than $1 billion a year.

    I wish this poll was public so anybody that answers yes could quickly be added to my list of posters that are biased hacks and not to be taken seriously.
    He was one of the worst presidents of my time

    Re: Should George W. Bush be put on Mount Rushmore?

    Each of the presidents on Mount Rushmore fundamentally transformed this country for the better in some way or another. Even giving George W. the benefit of the doubt on all points and looking at his presidency in the best light imaginable from every angle, I don't think that's something you can say about him.

    FDR is the only other president I think would absolutely fit into that line-up. Truman, Eisenhower, and Wilson might also fit, but could also fairly be left out.

    So Bush can be added after FDR?

    A better question might be: should Mount Rushmore be finished?

    I'm agreeing with just about everyone else here, and I'll ask the same question... Are you joking? Seriously.
    I don't solve problems, I create them.

    it's interesting to me that Mt. Rushmore will probably be one of the longest lasting American (or human) achievements. it could last tens of thousands of years whether humans do or not.

    aliens visiting the ruins of earth will tour Mt. Rushmore, the pyramids, and will possibly be able to enjoy a Twinkie, assuming the brand continues.

    An even better question is should it be given back to the rightful owners the Sioux.
