I used to think he was ok in a half-assed way.
Now I think he was one of the worst in the last 4-5 or so, if not more.
Did I say this before?
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
The "Herbert Hoover of the 21st Century"? Surely you jest. The man drove this country to the brink of economic and moral bankruptcy...the likes this country had only seen during the great depression.
73.02 percent of those who voted said no.
G.W. Bush may not be the worst president ever but he's mighty close to the bottom.
George W. Bush did not only help the rich people, I think the most of us forget that.
But back on subject. The record of GWB is horrendous. There are people who hope against hope that somehow his record will be vindicated. First of all, there is no vindicating his economic record. He drove this country to the brink of bankruptcy. The numbers speak for themselves. As for the rest of his Presidency, I can't imagine how history is ever going to judge the Iraq war as anything other than a major blunder. The bottom line is that GWB was in over his head. He probably isn't a evil man, but surrounding himself with people that ran his Presidency that he will be blamed with in the annuls of history.
Obama is far more over his head than Bush. Obama wasn't prepared to be president. Most who voted for him-especially in the primary, wanted a novelty or the ability to pretend they weren't racist if they voted for an unqualified black over a slightly more qualified white woman
