    We could use a lot of politicians who think and act like him like him right now.

    I'm talking about people who put what's good for the USA ahead of what's good for the party that they belong to.
    : with your statement "we could use a lot of politicians who think and act like him right now." emphasis mine. The edge of the cliff is much closer now than it ever has been, IMO, and it won't be a pleasant experience on the way down, since too many are not prepared, because they don't like to hear bad news and would rather believe what they are told, in spite of the reality of what they actually see! Sad...

    Greetings, Shrubnose.

    First off... HA HA! I see what you did there. Touche.

    And more than me, It's a long time for the country to be sick.

    We would have been better off putting Carter back in office.

    I'm not a fan of Bush's politics or policies, but he preformed better as a potus than Obama and seemed more adept at pushing his political agenda. But I think that was more due to the team behind him, like Rove, as opposed to his own abilities.

    I actually put him right with Obama. His foreign policy disaster could even pull him below Obama depending on an individual's opinion of the disaster.

    I don't know, It's not like the Middle East has gotten any better since he got into office. Actually, I think you could probably argue that it's gotten far worse.

    That is definitely the truth.

    Things have been going downhill for a while, it's about time for them to start looking better.

    A good president has to be a good manager, and Bush seemed to be a good manager.

    You can't do it all yourself, so you have to be able to delegate responsibility to competent subordinates.

    He is either the most misinformed or deceitful man that has ever held office. I believe deceitful and not to be malicious, but because he believes he is doing good. For him the ends justify the means. In the end he is arrogant, condescending and wrong.

    .



    I have read, and I agree that you really can't evaluate a president until at least twenty years after he leaves office for various reasons.

    It's too early to fairly evaluate Bush or Obama right now. Twenty years from now we'll have a better picture of how their successes and failures during their time in office have affected the USA.
