Interesting.I pretty much think Bush is kind of a terrible president, but I do also hold that the circumstances in no way ever helped him out.He wanted what was best for America, and I do believe he put his effort in.Unrelated: my math teacher told our class how he got a call from a poller, asking him if, in light of the current gas prices and failing economy, war, etc., they believed Bush was a good president. I don't doubt that Bush still has the lowest approval ratings of these people, but it makes you take results like this with a few more grains of salt.
How can George Bush be compared to Nixon? He had alot of difficult decisions to make during his eight years as president. There can be no comparison between George Bush's decisions and Nixon's Watergate scandal.
"Fear not for the future, weep not for the past."-Percy Bysshe ShelleyGeorge W Bush did his best to appease to the will of the American society. We wanted justice, for the September 11 attacks, and in response Bush launched an anti-terrorist campaign. Their is no use in jugding an unchangeable past.
He certainly wasn't perfect, but I would take another 8 years of Bush over what is expected out of Obama. Looking at who he beat, I'm very glad that Bush won in 2000 and 2004; I don't trust what Gore and/or Kerry would've done with all of the situations thrown Bush's way. I'm very glad to see that Bush FINALLY did the right thing in the Compion and Ramos case...there's one blemish on his administration that has now faded.
America called for war and the annihilation of Osama Bin Laden, and Bush launched a war to carry out the will of the American people. You can't just pull out of a war. Besides, terrorist networks like Al Qaeda have announced that if America pulls out of the Middle East they will consider it a victory. Do you want America known as a weak nation? If the media would stop harassing the military, the mission would already be complete. America needs to let the military off its leash. Bush did what he could.
Like the video said close to the beginning of the video, people won't study Bush's terms until 10 years from now. So what if some people don't think he was a great president? Some of the things he did might be accomplishments in the long run. You never know if president truly accomplished anything until the next one comes around.
People bash on Bush way more than they should, i mean, if you had two terrorist planes crash into your twin towers, would you have done any better? with the circumstances, i think he did a good job as our president...although he may not have sounded the smartest all the time.
