    Oh yeah, including the fact that some actually believed that he and/or Cheney personally blew up the levees to flood New Orleans because they hated black people.

    That would be the Kanye West school of thought.

I don't know how anyone can objectively conclude after looking at the results of his presidency that he is anything but a bad president. Despite his presidency being a unmitigated disaster he seems to have a loyal following here.
    I think President Bush failed in a few areas, noteably the expansion of government spending. However he was a good and honest man. I would choose GW over Hilary every time.

    I could post links to books that say just the opposite....but to what avail?

    The reality is, Iraq is what it is today because GWB/Cheney/Rumsfield completely miscalculated the invasion and what the aftermath would be. Sorry....that's just the facts.

    LOL....wishful thinking. That is going to require a lot of rewriting of history. The facts speak for themselves....GWB drove this country to the brink of economic and moral bankruptcy.

    This particular author would be otherwise quite congenial to you politically.

    GWB handed over a victory. BHO threw it away.
