This isn't really fair to the cons.

I'll take pro on George Walker Bush.

I want my opponent to actually study the definition of the word 'good' and 'bad' in the context of presidency.

If you take into account everything that he faced and the odds why he fought to win the second election you will come to understand that in terms of good/efficient presidency in the political world of diplomacy there simply was no US president greater other than Lincoln and Roosevelt of course.

Darn you lannan...
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.
