    I think he takes too much heat for the recession. He definitely screwed up our foreign wars though.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    The Bob Woodward books give a good insight on this.

    True. So would a general knowledge of our foreign policy the past decade, it doesn't take a genius to know that he screwed the pooch big time.

    If Bush were president he would be blamed for the high gases prices. The double standard for Obama is disgusting
