The only argument is that bush has "helped thousands of people". However, simply because a person helps others, this is not suffcient to make them a GOOD leader. As an example, a leader may commit a mass genocide, while simultaneously sending foreign aide and thus helping thousands of people. This action would certainly not make him a good leader.
Further, Princeton WordNet defines a leader as: 1. a person who rules or guides or inspires others. By this definition, Bush can not be a "good" leader, because not only has he lost political influence both inside and outside of the the United States, rendering him unable to fulfill the "rules or guides" part of the definition; he is now so strongly opposed by so much of his own country, that his actions fail to inspire the people, again rendering him unable to meet the definition of a leader.
If Bush can not even meet the baseline definition of what it means to be a leader, he is also certainly unable to be a "good" leader, so only the CON side ought to be looked to.
