ANSWERS: 30
  • He is restoring an active interest inpolitics which maybe will be reflected in the next polls.
  • No...he did all the wrong things.
  • He freed 50 million people from dictatorships. 20 million in Afganistan and 30 million in Iraq. Not to mention that if these democracies can survive and thrive then democracy will spread throughout the entire middle east freeing 100s of millions of people. He also Lowered taxes which helped offset a recession that was occurring right when he entered office. If he hadn't done this It would have been really bad. He tried to fix social security but was routed by john mccain and the democrats. He also tried to drill in alaska for oil but was routed by john mccain and the democrats. The dollar is losing value because people that invest in the dollar see that the US will not be able to pay for Social Security. The US won't be able to pay its bills. Everything else is going up in value because to get something to your doorstep it requires oil and since we refuse to do the logical thing and drill for ourselves other countries know they can charge what ever they want and we have to buy it or there won't be any food on your doorstep. I am disappointed that bush did not have the skill to show the american people the importance of such actions. He also supported the free Pharmacy bill, which brings us into unneeded debt. Which lowers the dollar
  • yes he just signed the law of Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 to give us extra money if you are qualified! That is pretty chill.
  • Yeah, he made my generation realize how important it is to vote. Lol
  • I agree with everyone here, he did something for the good, but don't forget he put us in a recession that'll take years to get out.
  • No, he did not -- George Walker Bush undoubtedly remains the most incompetent and mentally challenged president the US has had to suffer, and should have been impeached long ago along with all the members of his Administration who led the United States Of America into a bloody, unnecessary, expensive war against Iraq -- They are responsible personally for the deaths of four-thousand U.S. soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians, not to mention the maiming of countless thousands of both groups. The actions of the Bush Administration have brought international shame to the nation that will take generations to correct and have stimulated the recruitment of terrorists in numbers that Bin Laden in his wildest fantasies could not have posted.
  • We are getting that check for 600 bucks back. That's good.
  • He sent billions of dollars to Africa to help save the lives of people infected with AIDS. No President EVER did that. The National Organanization for Women was screaming for help for the women of Afghanistan to be freed and now that they are we do not hear them giving one word of credit to George Bush. I hate the Democrats for the way they blame him and I hate the Republican for turning on their President just to win this election. SHAME ON ALL OF THEM! All Americans need to read the U.S. Constition and you will realize that Bush had nothing to do with our economic crisis. Congress (Democrats and Republicans alike) were handling our domestic issues while Bush was concentrating on international issues and trying to protect our country. He did his job. Congress failed us. Next time you vote for your Representatives and Senators you need to realize it is as importatnt as the President.
  • he made us laugh
  • Go back and look at history...if you people think all of this is his fault you should do your research first. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_TjBNjc9Bo Also, the only reason the country is going to be unified is b/c republicans are going to give in. It was never unified when the dems were going crazy. It isn't about Obama, you people should try backing the president b/c he is the comander in chief. As a republican that is what i am choosing to do for the next 4 years. I am not going to talk crazy like the dems did. I am just going to support and then vote again in 4 years!
  • Yes. He left the white house ON TIME!!!
  • duhhh obviously yes!!! he was elected not once.. TWICE. for anyone claiming he never won the second election. who was prez for the last 4 years???
  • he is criminal.responsible for thousands killings
  • The guy couldn't even learn to pronounce the word 'nuclear' which is about the only thing he could have done right
  • He bought the right dog food for his dog.
  • Hell to the no!!!!!!!!!
  • Actually, I somewhat agreed with his immigration policy and privatizing social security...but I think that's it. Two things in eight years, not bad.
  • Yes. He left office.
  • i dont want to lose points so ill say no
  • Yes, he didn't die and leave us with Dick Cheney as a president!
  • yeah he followed in his fathers footsteps like a good ole texas boy should lol Double Whammy: 50-Year Record on Sept. 22. $10 Trillion on Sept. 30, 2008. The gross national debt compared to GDP (how rich we are) reached its lowest level since 1931 as Reagan took office in 1981. It skyrocketed for 12 years through Bush senior. Clinton reversed it at a peak of 67%. Bush junior crossed that line on Sept. 22 and hit 69% on Sept 30. That's the highest it's been since 1955. Bush did three things to skyrocket the debt from $5.7 trillion to $10 trillion: 1. He lowered taxes on the rich (by far the biggest item). 2. He invaded Iraq instead of winning in Afghan-Pakistan (another $600 B). 3. He deregulated Wall Street speculators. That bailout has now "invested" $1T
  • Nothing comes to mind for me either.
  • Bush pushed for and was able to pass massive expansion of IRA and 401k and other self directed retirement plans. He was able to make those changes permanent too. Additionally, President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)is an accomplishment he and his administration can be proud of. Before PEPFAR, only 50,000 people in sub-Saharan Africa were receiving treatment for HIV and/or AIDS, and today there are nearly 1.68 million people being treated in the region; PEPFAR is the single greatest effort against a disease in international history.
  • In less than two months, Barack Obama will be inaugurated as the new President of the United States. Out with the old, and in with the new. With Bush's approval ratings lower than those of Ted Bundy, one has to wonder what kind of legacy George W. Bush will leave. Bush has been blamed for 9-11, Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the Iraq war, the economy, the unemployment rate, and countless other problems and catastrophes. It is fashionable to just blame Bush for all of the country's problems and more. Fail an exam? It's Bush's fault. An airplane crashes? It's Bush's fault. A civil war breaks out in a third-world country? It's Bush's fault. A kid who gets in trouble these days doesn't have to say, "The devil made me do it." The only excuse he needs is, "Bush made me do it." I don't dispute the fact that Bush made wrong decisions as President. I've been very vocal in pointing out those wrong decisions. I've called Bush a rhino (a Democrat masquerading as a Republican) many times. However, I've often told my friends, much to their ridicule, that history will be kind to Bush-much kinder than the pundits of today. After all, hindsight is always 20/20. So before Bush is vilified in the history books and placed along side of Hitler and Stalin, let me remind you of what Bush did right…at least what he did right in my book. I was never prouder of Bush than when he signed the legislation that outlawed partial-birth abortion. I never understood how a doctor could, in good conscience, first deliver a third-trimester baby's feet and body and then plunge scissors into the base of the baby's skull to abort the life. We treat stray dogs and cats better than that! Reputable shelters don't euthanize animals unless it is done as humanely as possible, yet we can barbarically kill a human baby. I am completely aware of the fact that partial-birth abortions were rare and typically only performed when a mother's life was in jeopardy. However, the end never justifies the means when we are talking about a human life. Another thing Bush did right was giving more humanitarian aid to Africa than any other U.S. President. Theoretically, I am against the government being involved in foreign aid (it's not their job, and it usually backfires) but since we do not live in a theoretical world, I was impressed by Bush's drive to help. I have several friends who operate orphanages, missions, and other projects in Africa, and the needs of the people always outweigh the resources available. What further impressed me was that Bush attached strings to the money (the money couldn't be used for abortions or abortion counseling) and refused to bow to international and domestic pressure to cut the strings. Somehow the far-left mantra, "Bush lied, kids died," seems to lose its tenuous hold on truth in light of the work Bush did in Africa. Maybe they should change their chant to, "Bush gave, kids were saved"! However, if that day were to come, I believe we'd be ice-skating in hell while watching pigs perform aerial acrobatics. Finally, I believe Bush did the right thing in hunting down the terrorists who planned 9-11. Although Osama bin-Laden has not been caught, almost all of the top leaders in al-Qa'ida have been caught. Bush sent a strong message to the world that America would no longer stand by and let terrorists destroy our country. After all, Clinton never retaliated when al-Qa'ida bombed the World Trade Center, the USS Cole, and the American embassy in Kenya in the 1990s. In all fairness, Clinton did have the headache of a stained blue dress to contend with during the '90s. Cheating on your wife, sexually harassing women, and lying to the country takes up a lot of time. I can understand why his attention was diverted from the small matter of national security. Bush, on the other hand, took his job seriously and went after the repeat-offenders. As we move toward welcoming a new President to the White House, we should be careful not to write-off Bush as a total failure. No President, not even Jimmy Carter, has been a complete failure. While we will have to deal with his failed policies like No Child Left Behind, we should acknowledge the things Bush did well. To ignore the positive aspects of the Bush administration would be like listening to only one side of a story-both are foolish and prevent the truth from being told.
  • The one thing I do know that he did was his support to fight AIDS in Africa, which made him popular with the lead singer of U2.
  • Is this true would answer a lot of questions http://www.rense.com/general14/bushsformer.htm
  • He did quite a few, wonderful, stand up comedy routines!
  • Nothing that I can think of. Well, except for the stimulus check last year. My s/o had surgery and had to take medical leave...and worked for a company that didn't have paid medical leave. We pooled our stimulus checks so my s/o could pay bills. I don't think he realized that with the way the economy was, that most folks were using the checks for debts and bills, not on luxuries.
  • Yes. he appointed my son to a very high position within the Federal Government and i thank him for that.
