People (especially liberals) have blamed all our countries problems on George Bush because he made some mistakes and our country was already currently going through a difficult time. But hey! At least he did a better job than Obama! Now, with Obama in the presidency, (now for another four miserable years) he has tripled our debt, raised taxes, and instead of bringing "change for the better" he brought "change for the worse" and yet people are too blind to see that because the liberals keep quiet about any of his mistakes (quite the opposite with George W. Bush) and praise him ceaselessly. Ugh.
While he made some obvious mistakes, I feel he had our country's best interest in mind. He had to deal with the biggest crisis our nation ever faced in the September 11th terrorist attacks. I don't think many of us would have handled the situation any better if we were in his shoes.
George W. Bush failed for many reasons. Two costly and unnecessary wars, tax cuts for the wealthy, stagnant job growth, expansion of the federal government and a huge deficit were all the bane of Bush's eight years. How the man got re-elected is beyond me. Bush, a recovering alcoholic, had recurring daddy issues in the White House as he tried to prove he was better than his forebear.
Bush was a terrible President from day one when he was able to get into office from the recount battles in Florida until the end when he left the country in a state of financial ruin.
Bush failed every time he was tested from 9 /11 to Kartina, He has kept a low profile with good reason American's don't care to remember his time in office.
While I hold Barack Obama responsible for his own failings, I also don't think we can forget the kind of situation that he inherited. George W. Bush started the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, turned a budget surplus into a budget deficit, and created the climate that led to the current financial crisis. He is responsible for much of our nation's current woes.
Two biggest mistakes: Afghanistan and Iraq. He could have taken out OBL surgically like removing benign cancer. Instead he heavily radiated the patient foregoing the whole purpose of the mission and creating a even worse situation. We will be paying for years for his not so great insight.
