  • Yes George W. Bush was an idiot. Obama is a better president than Bush. Well that isn't saying much

  • I don't know why George Bush always was picking fights with other countries and wasted a lot of money. Those poor army men. I feel pity for them because they used to have a leader like George Bush.

  • Iraq, The No Child Left Behind Act, High class tax cuts, the list goes on. Not to mention he really looked like an idiot when he gave speeches.

  • Was he the confused spokesman for the Cheney presidency?

  • History is not going to remember him well. I wish I could just not remember him at all.

  • I made a huge mistake by voting for him in 2000.

  • Yes but obama is his lazy black equal.

  • No George W. Bush is not an idiot. He was a better president then Obama. Well that isn't saying much.

  • He is (by definition) a psychopath, but that does not make him unintelligent.

  • The man became president, so he's not a complete idiot. I think his problem is that he is such a bad speaker.

  • Does in the middle count?

He is better than Obama
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-07T14:10:27.2326684-05:00
You got that one right.
tajshar2k says2015-07-07T14:17:09.9715339-05:00
I must disagree.
Darthidiot says2015-07-07T17:02:55.2620236-05:00
Obama is much better than Bush. Bush's failure in securing Iraq and establishing a successful withdrawal from the region had resulted in the deaths of 100,000 Iraqi's and nearly 5,000 American soldiers. We all know his WMD story was a load of s*it, and he admitted that in an interview. Regardless of his intentions of protecting America, he failed us economically and politically. After the war, he decided it was a good idea to cut taxes for the rich, increase mass spying on everyday Americans, and approved some of the most brutal torture methods. His infamous legacy will never be forgotten, as his foreign policy and presidency overall is one of the worst in American history.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T08:11:25.0808263-05:00
Thats not how I will remember him. Hopefully that viewpoint dies with your generation.
Darthidiot says2015-07-08T12:18:41.6780384-05:00
Umm, I'm only 7 years older than you... Your are not too far from my generation.
tajshar2k says2015-07-08T12:21:30.3420927-05:00
The only people who will like him are far right conservatives. Conservatives in his own party do not even like him.
TBR says2015-07-08T12:21:50.0020761-05:00
This is not much of a question any more. Personal opinions are all fine, but objectively Bush was an abject failure.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T13:53:58.1805472-05:00
It must be all personal opinion since a 2 term president who ran the country just fine is only now having his name tarnished after the fact. No one said anything back then when they were voting for him. If people changed their opinions so easily then, I have no doubt theyll find another flavor of the week to blame for everything.
DonaldTrump says2015-07-08T13:54:43.8167711-05:00
Was he the best president ever? No, he wasn't. However, that doesn't mean he's a bad person. He's actually a great person out of office. I can say the same for Obama and Bill Clinton.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T13:57:36.8809523-05:00
I havent personally met Obama. I don't see him out meeting the troops like Bush did. Its a hell of a thing to work for a guy youve never met, especially when it involves possibly dying on his behalf.
TBR says2015-07-08T14:04:51.8856274-05:00
Aren't they during for our freedoms? Regardless, your desire to not hang out with Obama does not make Bush anything but a failure.
58539672 says2015-07-08T14:13:24.2109945-05:00
I find that a lot of the things people complain about in any given president are not entirely their fault. Despite what some may think, it takes more than one man to rule this country. People always blame (or praise) the president for what happens during his presidency while ignoring all the other people involved in the process (including the American people themselves). This is true for Bush, Obama, and every other president.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T14:13:52.4183371-05:00
Its not that I dont want to hang out with him ... God knows id love to hang out anywhere withing 10m of him. His goons probably wont let that happen though.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T14:15:28.6665888-05:00
Yeah dying for your freedoms ... But at his beck and call is what I mean. The guy sending you to war ought to have the decency to come give a speech to your battalion and explain things to you, maybe see you off.
MechVarg says2015-07-08T14:18:11.6277239-05:00
He was really bad, though. DEATH TO THE BUSH DYNASTY nac.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T14:19:42.2744678-05:00
@58539672 That I can agree with. Thats why I wont entirely blame Barrack for our increased debt ... But new ideas like this whole healthcare tax thing he created are genuinely his and are what make his failures more assignable. The whole middle east thing has been going on since long long before bush, before his father even.
tajshar2k says2015-07-08T14:22:25.3447803-05:00
But Bush made it alot worse. Thats the point. The debt problem was occurring when Reagan was president, and from then only Bill Clinton managed to bring the debt down. So I still hold Bush accountable. Iraq 2003 was entirely the fault of his administration, and fools like Hillary Clinton.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T14:24:57.5549560-05:00
You mean it had nothing to do with planes being hijacked and flown into buildings just a few years before?
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T14:25:41.2119733-05:00
Your 'Bush is the cause of everything' is predicated on him having orchestrated that event.
tajshar2k says2015-07-08T14:26:26.1011236-05:00
Ya it didn't. Groups like Al-Qaeda hated Saddam Hussein. Saddam has nothing to do with the terrorists, because he was a liberal muslim.There was absolutely no reason to go to Iraq, except for the fact of "potential WMD"
tajshar2k says2015-07-08T14:27:05.3509752-05:00
'Bush is the cause of everything' Never said that.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T14:30:57.3329575-05:00
You should head on down to Wikipedia then and change the article that states Husseins support for terrorism as a major objective for going to war. They are spreading disinformation as we speak. 'Aiding terrorists' brand could be easily come about when they are coming from your country with weapons and you make no measure to stop them from attacking your nations you just so happen to dislike.
tajshar2k says2015-07-08T14:37:00.9760164-05:00
If they "get attacked" thats there problem. Not ours. I don't feel spending billions of dollars in stopping dictator in some god forsaken place is a good idea.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T14:38:09.9302040-05:00
It came about because a terrorist from that country proved the leader of being incapable of stopping terrorists from getting their hands on some larger more damaging weapons that country has. If terrorist attacks originated from within the united states borders were commonplace in Europe ... Youd better believe Europe would be scrutinizing the united states on their ability to quell the attacks and they would doubly scrutinize our defense of where we keep our large weapons.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T14:40:20.2341894-05:00
"If they "get attacked" thats there problem." What do you mean "get attacked"? They arent attacking them they were attacking us. Thats yet another reason why his participation in their tactics was so apparent.
58539672 says2015-07-08T14:41:54.9159342-05:00
@tajshar2k Every president since FDR contributed something to the debt. It did not start with Reagan. In fact Reagan wasn't even the largest contributor at the time. And as for the Iraq war, are you referring to the same war that 62% Americans approved of before the invasion and 79% after we killed Saddam.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T14:42:52.2686376-05:00
What qualms would they have with us to attack our cities if they truly hated their dictator there in their own country. They attacked half way around the world instead of using their capabilities to overthrow their corrupt government. How does that not show them as being cohorts.
58539672 says2015-07-08T14:45:46.0507942-05:00
Bush is not the sole barer of responsibility. Most of the American people are to blame for Iraq.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-08T14:45:52.5415191-05:00
"are you referring to the same war that 62% Americans approved of before the invasion and 79% after we killed Saddam." I know. People called that a win. The occupation afterwards was what seems to have tarnished the entire fight. That part was necessary too though to fulfill the "liberating the Iraqi people" portion.
