Not as bad as Obama... He has appointed 17 lobbyists to cabinet positions! http://www.indiadaily.com/editorial/20471.asp(Something he promised not to do). I can count on the Democrats to do two things, raise taxes and give excuses for why they didn't pay theirs. I can't wait until these 4 years are up :/

Thats a good article but too short, it didn't elaborate too much on the matter.Mayhaps this article would share a larger insight of picture, as it details the list of former lobbyists.

President Obama has spoken up on the issue of Tom Daschle who was nominated but withdraw his candidacy after independent investigation show he had issues with back taxes. You can read up on the article here at

Bush has gotten a really bad rep. To some degree he earned it, but a lot of it was political propaganda. He was accused of neglecting the environment, being racist against blacks, destroying the economy, destroying the republican political party (I don’t think the Republicans needed help for that one,) and failing to effectively react to disasters. But, since he did do his best by his merits I don't think we should see him as a bad person. (Though probably a bad president.)

Bush did actually lower taxes. As a liberal I’m not actually happy about that because I support higher taxes for better social programs. However, he campaigned on that promise and then lived up to it. Compared that to Obama who ran on ‘change’ and then hired the same old cabinet from 8-16 years ago. But, to adress the attacks:

Did he neglect the environment?

-Created the world’s largest marine reserve according to Washington Times and the EPA.

-Then created three more marine reserves which were, though not as quantum in proportion, still immensely expansive according to the environmentalist expert Enric Sala and Economist.com.

-Under his administration we’ve actually done more for the environment than the Clinton Administration and the European Union. Tony Snow/James Inhofe/Headline Earth.

Was he racist against blacks?

-George W. Bush Jr. did more for humanitarian efforts and AIDS relief in Africa than any other President in American history. Washington Times, Steve Bloomfield.

Was he unable to react to disasters?

-He sent hundreds of millions of dollars to India during the Tsunami relief program, and then spent millions more to-and here’s the impressive part-ACTUALLY make sure that the money got where it needed to be. Jonathan Stein.

Plus we can’t forget whose name is on the paper that gave us our family court system, and we must not forget who it was that applied UN pressure to keep North Korea from attaining WMODs from its nuclear program.

So, was he really as bad as his reputation? That’s at least three attacks on G.W.B that have been debunked.

What about the economy?

Bush wasn't great for the economy. However, was it he who caused the crises? Actually, no.

Independent economists say that he contributed but that he didn’t cause the crises. According to them Bush’s greatest failure was that he didn’t catch the mistakes of the Clinton Administration which put middle-class America in debt by pushing for less stringent credit and down payment requirements.

This allowed mortgage brokers less-credit-worthy home buyers subprime, adjustable rate loans with low initial payments, but exploding interest rates-according to Factchecker.com

Did he destroy the republican political party?

Nope, they didn't need his help for that. The GOP is actually younger than the Democratic Party, and it's also a minority party. With most major media providers biased to the left, it's no surprise that the minority party is being drowned out.

So, was Bush all that bad? Since he's leaving office in shame I thought it'd be merciful to shed some light on some of the things he did that I actually liked.


yeah people are blaming him for a lot of things even tho he had nothing to do with it, but in these stressful times with the economy crises and terrorirsm and war obviously people are going to be pointing their fingers to the one in charge. He kinda did ruin the republican party not by his own fault (scince obama did win after all) but i remember hearing an interview from george bush; he said that he knows america hates him but he hopes as historians research it more that he had nothing to do with most of the stuff that happened and he will actually be one of the good presidents, kinda like president Truman

Whatever the good things he has done, he still considered the worst president.

He was incredibly stupid and did soooooo many horrible things without any regard of the constitution, Geneva convention, the UN, etc, so yes, he was very very bad.

But at least he provided so much good quality entertainment:
