    BHO threw away victory in Iraq and enabled the rise of ISIS. He has overseen the slowest economic growth imaginable. His international credibility is near zero. GWB made serious errors, but he did not put the fundamental position of the US at risk.

    This has to be a joke right. He put the country in the verge of bankruptcy and brought the whole world in to a great recession.

    That's it. President GW Bush disappointed me in his failure to curb runaway spending in Congress, in his handling of Katrina, in his prosecution of the aftermath of the war in Iraq, in his education policy, his energy policy, his environmental policy, and his immigration policy. But he did get some things right and produced some good results. And he is a good man with the strength of his convictions that he continues to live out to this day.

    And since President Obama has been worse on all those issues than President Bush was. . . .well. . .

    Wow, you commiserating with Disney Dude and calling other people partisan hacks is, just, well, it must be kinda awesome to just be so blissfully self unaware.

    Not according to Sen. Paul and more and more Republicans starting to see the light of the next election.

    He has overseen the slowest economic growth imaginable.
    Not according to folks who can count past 60 with the number of straight months of private sector job growth.

    His international credibility is near zero.
    BHO has done away with Bush/Cheney's "cowboy diplomacy" and restored this wonderful Nation of mine to respectability overseas.

    GWB made serious errors
    correct.

    but he did not put the fundamental position of the US at risk.
    This position is proven more incorrect 24/7 .

    I didn't notice you telling us of all the things Obama has done wrong in cleaning up the messes you outlined that Bush did wrong.

    Nor do I notice you acknowledging the fact that there is a transition between administrations.

    Surely you would agree what Bush left was a catastrophe compared to what he inherited, such as a balanced budget .

    The attack on GWB over Katrina was in fact not justified.
