    Hahahahaha.
    Presidents often become more popular once out of office. It's nothing new.

    Hell I hated him as President and even I kinda like the guy after seeing some of his post Presidency interviews. Doesn't mean I've changed my opinion of his time in office in any way.

    Uh-oh, someone's been listening to Sean Hannity again.

    As to the OP, Bush is near the bottom. He's just a little above Reagan, who died on this day in 2004, eleven years ago. So sad.

    LOL.. This thread is about Bush, so there's a pretty good chance his name, and his awful presidency will be discussed.

    I was just thinking out loud about what the people answering the poll were thinking, as the poster asked. I'm willing to bet my guess was pretty accurate.

    Keep reading and you'll see I basically agree with that.

    And he was absolutely right.

    A lesser FEMA administrator would have stuck to FEMA's actual legal mandate and responsibility which would have resolutely denied services to any but a functional local government.

    And a lesser FEMA administrator
    would have been overwhelmed when asked to do more than his job description called for when the locals failed in their responsibilities, which would have prolonged and exacerbated the victims' plight.

    Brownie rose to the occasion and became the savior the Gulf region residents were denied by the failure of local government officials.

    Literally, Brownie saved their asses.

    And this is the thanks he gets from the shum dit media and haters.

    Now go forth and never sully Bushy's or Brownie's good names again!

He is, in my opinion, just a another president, in an increasingly long list of presidents, that the history books will devote a paragraph or so to in middle school, and that will be that. He won't be remember, either positively or negatively, beyond these next two generations or not. He's no Lincoln, no FDR, no Teddy, no Ike. He's just...blah. He did the job, the job ended, and he went home.
