Been a while since the big day. How do you rate Bush Jr's performance over his entire 8 years in power ?


I give Bush Jr's two terms both a Failing grade.

You guys rock and it is very close to the truth; Nixon comes in a close second, he was the one who privatised American Health care against advisement apparently.

Defence; pretty good, goes after AQ hammer and tongs after 911, stands up to Iran, North Korea etc Kicks out Saddam, the resulting insurgency was a mess but seems to have been now overcome with the surge (and remember Obama opposed that). One wonder what might have happened in Vietnam if Johnson/Nixon had given Westmoreland/Abrams something similar?

Economy; fine right up until the end where it implodes. Unfair to blame just Bush for this though this appears to have been building for decades. Does the right thing to rescue the banks and Obama seems to be continuing his policies

Foreign policy; ok, could have presented it all better. Alienated a lot of countries with his 'with us or against us' attitude but when you see what Obama's softly softly attitude has gained (pretty much nothing!;) you wonder if he had a point. Also I'm very cynical about countries that cry crocidile tears but would do nothing to help the US against AQ

I think it's too soon to judge the Bush presidency, in five years we can look at the situation in Iraq and if it's any good that will be the defining feature

National defense: he was good he actually tried to defend the nation.

Spending: Horrible the worst Republican ever in that regards and to my knowledge second only to Obama in increasing the size of the Federal government.

Economy:  His tax cuts got us out of the Clinton rescission but then he dumb all of these stimulus bills on us his last few years and "tried to say capitalism by destroying it".  My Webpage  I hated the bailouts and knew they were a bad idea.

Domestic issues: Passed that first amendment violating McCain Feingold even though he felt it was a violation of the Constitution.  Mess up big time with New Orleans along with state and local officials.  

Over all  D+ being mean C- being nice

Not the worst President but a little below average.

And you can make an assessment on 1 year as opposed to 8? Real skills there or are you confuzzled?  :D

The only comment I made about Obama is how he has increased the size of the Federal government the most out of any president.  This is true in less than one year he has managed to spend more than Bush did in all 8 years of his presidency.

Well he did inherit a few rather big domestic and international catastrophies from Bush Jr's watch.

And it's pretty clear that leaving it to the market to self rectify and self regulate has been successful .... not.
