    GWB overall, was awful.

    I don't consider myself "left" or "right".

    I don't vote for D's or R's. I find them all to be loathsome creatures.

    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.
    Carter was incompetent, Bush wasn't.

    Whatever your opinion of Carter is, Bush was not a bright man, and actively surrounded himself with malevolent influences. Carter didn't.

    I was not impressed with Bush, but history will not be unkind to him.

    I amjust an American,so I could not vote according to the various categories listed.

    As an American, I was embarrassed to have such an obviously simple-minded man as president. I hated Nixon back in the day,but at least I respected his intelligence.

    Re: Was George W Bush a good president?

    I don't think he was a very good president because of the bail-outs and, of course, the wars. I remember thinking when it was announced that we would be going in to invade Iraq, and I wondered, why Iraq? However, I can't ignore the fact that we had just suffered from one of the biggest attacks ever on our soil, and we were QUITE pissed off at that time.

    You have no idea whether or not " Bush was a bright man "

    You just bought into the Democrats false narratives that portrayed their primary political opponent as a stupid hick.

    You know who's not " bright " ?

    Obama, Hillary, Carter, and the millions of Americans who equated plattitudes and bumper sticker slogans to Presidential qualifications.

    And here's where malevolence comes in. The necons knew America was pissed, knew Iraq had nothing to do with it, and conflated Iraq with 9/11 in order to gain support for the invasion.

    The notion that the Bush Admin was simply a victim of faulty intelligence is a canard. They used intelligence they knew was faulty or flatout incorrect.

    This is why I get angry/frustrated when Obama is pestered with scandal dandruff like Benghazi. So he changed some talking points? Maybe? Holy crap is that small potatoes.
