    Jesus, I can't believe how intellectually lazy left wingers are sometime. How can you be satisfied with that level of generic rhetoric ?
    No, the financial collapse was not due to the vanity war. The debt explosion that conservatives became concerned with in Jan. 2009 was.

    Ehhhh, Buchanan basically made the Civil War happen, which has had effects much more far reaching than anything Bush did will have. YMMV, of course.

    Lol what? The Bush administration appointed John Bolton as ambassador to the UN. That ALONE makes the W. White House dreadful-with-a-capital-D at diplomacy.

    LOL !!

    No you're very wrong.

    Housing under Bush shot up only 1 percent, and a fraction of that was Sub-Prime.

    The vast majority of worthless loans were made under Clinton as Housing shot up from 63 percent in 1993 to 68 percent in 2000.

    Tax cuts were extended out to everyonex not just " the rich" amd are you seriously STILL blaming Bush 6 years into a Progressives Presidents term ?

    I would have agreed with you prior to the ACA ruling, however, Roberts proved to be a man more interested in the public opinion of the court rather than the rule of law. He failed miserably in that ruling and will likely never recover from it.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Re: Was George W Bush a good president?

    I don't understand how someone could put Bush and Carter in the same boat.

    As to the question, I think that Bush was a simpleton and the neocons (Cheney's gang) played him like a fiddle. Kind of sad that Bush got taken advantage of like that, but he chose his fate.
