  • Bush's Presidential Accomplishments

    I'm going to preface this by saying that while I haven't responded or thrown my opinions at any of the political bullshit that Goon Attack has fertilized here...I'd REALLY appreciate it if this thread isn't hijacked by that crap...

    My question is this...and I'm honestly interested in the answers...

    What has Bush done during his Presidency that has had a positive impact on the country?

    When he leaves office...what can he say happened under his watch that made the country better than it was before he was elected??

      If we end up with great democracy in Iraq he will be praised.
      (but of course in my opinion.. that isn't why we were told we went to Iraq so it shouldn't be seen as a victory for him, but it will be and already is being spun that way)

        I agree. Bush does think he's King of the Hill...

        How about commenting on his legacy, Einstein.

          There will never, ever, ever, be democracy in Iraq...you can't teach an old dog new tricks....

            Two things...

            1) He isn't done yet RIGHTLY OR WRONGLY

            2) Legacy sometimes aren't formed for a generation or two....

              Although Septic certainly proves you can make idiotic commentary at any time, it is totally irrelevant to talk about legacies during a presidency, much less even a few years after.

              Bush's legacy will be buffeted by the actions and reactions that occur over the course of the next 20 years. Same as Clinton, same as Reagan.

              At this juncture, we're seeing things -- the funding of Saddam, Venezuela, etc. -- that have bearing on what RR did. So only now do I believe we can begin talking competently about how Reagan served as a president.

              Come back and post in 20 years and we can intelligently discuss the issue of legacies and Bush.

                    No. wanted the input of everyone that didn't stumble upon that thread.

                    And fine..."legacy" is a bad word...

                    I'll change the title...

                    The point of this little jaunt was to determine what Bush has done that has benefited the constituency...

                    What HAS he done?

                        1. Record-breaking profits for oil companies.

                        2. Cleansed the gene pool of a couple thousand kids not fast enough to dodge suicide bombers.

                        3. NHL salary cap.
                        . . . and to tell you this: I work with gays, have friends who are gay, go to church with gays. Most of them are aware that I believe that homosexual behavior is sin. Some of them actually agree. Most don't. It's OK . . . because they also know or at least have been made aware of my multitude of sins: adulterous heart, lustful and covetous behavior, wicked pride, angry spirit . . . do I need to go on?
