Good luck to the opponent who accepts. Please do not accept if you are not going to debate. Also, please do not accept if you are not educated on the topic.

Round 1: Acceptance and <50 word opening statement.
Round 2: Your argument, nothing else.
Round 3: Your rebuttal and additional arguments
Round 4: Rebuttal of rebuttals and final statement.

MY OPENING STATEMENT:
George W. Bush did not perform well as president for multiple reasons; he lost a surplus, he joined church and state, NCLBA, irresponsible and large amount of spending while cutting taxes, caused the recession, and the war on terror.

I accept. However, in the next round, please tell me how the burden of proof falls so I can shape my arguments. For the opening statement, I will assume that it is shared.

Opening Statement

George Bush was not a bad president. He was not to blame for losing the surplus. His social policy reflected that of the majority of Americans. His tax cuts were in the best interest of America. He was not to blame for the reckless spending. He did not cause the recession. His foreign policy was in the best interest of America.

I will provide more arguments later on.
