For me Bush is the only US president who has failed to grow into a role that inspires trust and security. Bush senior and Clinton both failed in this respect at the begginig of their terms, but within a year or so I felt they had become an American president. Four years later the feeling of worry and anticipation that always accompanies a new presidency still remains fresh for me with respect to Bush. Interestingly The Economist named him man of the year 2003, and with good argument, but I still cannot buy into it. I think maybe it a failure of spin, of an inability to project the correct image. I wonder if it is not this single fact, combined with diplomatic inability that has not caused the anti-american sentiment around the world. The most worrying of which is the transatlantic drift. Bush may very well be able to fill the presidential shoes, international policy in its actions has over the last few years has been tough, realistic and progressive (not forgetting that the reasons given to the public for these actions were totally wrong). iBut the world remains oblivious to these achievments. I believe the administrations inability to project their leader as a president poses a far greater danger than any of the actioned policies so far. I hope he follows in the footsteps of his single term father.
