  • I thought he had it.
  • He will, in the history books, 200 years from now.
  • A hundred years from now when he is long dead, providing we win at least a few of the intervening wars, yes. To the victors go the writing of the history books.
  • GW has the respect he deserves.
  • He will some day. Poor guy. Nobody could have dealt with this in a great way. I hate people who call him an idiot because in retrospect when we learn a whole lot more of the story he could have maybe made a better decision. Democrats.
  • Let's just say I look forward to the day I can pay him final respects. You know what I'm saying.
  • Does he really deserve any respect? He was elected under shady circumstances, and has all but ruined America. What kind of respect should he be given for this? Polls show that his popularity among the people is at an all time low. Not just for him since he has been in office, but for all presidents in history.
  • We are only now getting the real story on the Vietnam war. Using that as a guide, we won't even HEAR the truth about GWB for another 40-50 years.
  • Hm... could you fill me in on what he's done to earn respect?
  • He might but it's going to be hard to get past the facts we already know. His VP doesn't help matters.
  • He already gets some of the disdain he deserves. The Saddam treatment would be more appropriate though, dangling at the end of a rope...
  • I'm sitting here trying to think of why he deserves any?
  • In small doses, not to mention all the credit he is given on this site, and not all of it is bad.
  • Only when he dies and nobody turns up for the funeral
  • No, no one understands the system so they just blame him for Well Clinton's errors and the 9% doless congress right now.
  • tell me what respect he deserves? i am not being cheeky i am a British citizen trying to gain knowledge.
  • He gets all the respect from me he already deserves- Zero.
  • I think he gets too much respect as it is.
  • He is getting the respect he deserves, NONE!!!
  • First of all, he gets plenty of respect from Republicans. Second, people do not take the office to gain respect. They take the office to serve the United States. Third, no one is obligated to respect him.
  • someday they will build a library, erect a statue of him, name an airport or road after him or some such crap like that (like all the other presidents). i think he already gets the respect that he deserves from those that support his policies. he gets none or very little from the others. i fall in the latter category. i think he is one of the worst presidents this country has ever seen. good riddance!
  • "Deserves"? Yes. He will get exactly what he deserves, which is what he will have earned by his performance! :) ((hugs))
  • He went and pissed off a buncha people who cut your head off if you don't agree with their religion, I'm more disappointed than anything, really. But, this might not be entirely his fault, as America has been going head to head with the middleeast for more than twenty years, and it wasn't just him. Maybe he's doing his best, or maybe he laughs at the American people, I don't know. Or maybe he doesn't know what he's doing, and is a puppet for somebody else. Either way, whatever reactions and responses are presented at his subject, for those who think America is sinking low, it isn't just Bush's fault, anyway.
  • I think he does now.
  • Did you say "respect he deserves"? I guess you did-interesting... I hope you joking...
  • Luckily for him he probably will not
  • Well, he deserves none but unfortunately there will always be some who misguidedly show him some.
  • Why would anyone want to Respect a man that has sent Hundreds of Americans to their Death.
  • Respect isn't something that a person innately deserves. It's something that has to be earned. In the opinion of many people (myself included), he hasn't earned that respect due to unwise decisions.
  • He's left this country in a mess. One unjust war that has cost us trillions and driven up the deficit that taxpayers are responsible for. Was warned that the economic crisis was coming and refused to do anything about it before it struck. Just what respect do you think it is that he deserves?
  • Hello Chris. Bush will get the respect he deserves from a subset of America only. I have found in life that I am often disliked by poor performers and underachievers. I am totally against government handouts, believe people should get married and stay married, that the energy problem could already be solved through nuclear power, that unsuccessful people and companies should be allowed to fail, and that we should jail and then deport illegal immigrants. This puts me at odds with 80%+ of America. I am not worried about their approval of me. I am also not worried about what the Europeans may think or the Africans. I am only worried that the views I express would ultimately produce a productive, moral, and merit based society.
  • Well, he has my respect. But the only respect he gets is the douchebag respect.
  • He already IS getting the respect he deserves. ... actually he's getting a lot MORE respect than he deserves.. Our Founding Fathers certainly wouldn't be giving him ANY respect whatsoever.
