    As I said, therein lies the crux of the problem .
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    That's the point, just look at the raw numbers. Bush came into office with budget surpluses and left us with a massive deficit. He came into office following the greatest period of peace and prosperity in U.S. history and left us with the worst economic recession and financial crisis since the Great Depression. His decision to go into Iraq was probably the single worst foreign policy decision in U.S. history and virtually every problem we are dealing with in the Middle East (resurgent Iran, ISIS, Syria, Arab Spring) all has resulted from it. That doesn't even get into the scandals. My favorite of those was when officials with his Department of Interior was caught engaging in drug fueled orgies with oil industry lobbyists.

    There are many others in this thread who said they voted for Bush. Perhaps one of them would like to debate their voting choice with you. I don't care to.

    Yes. And therein lies the problem. An utter lack of introspection from many Bush voters. Its not about you...its about tens of millions like you.
