    Read this study, a vote of over 400 historians, and several dozen quotes of their opinion of his presidency. These are historians, you know...the ones who judge history. Possibly one of the most thorough studys on a president and how he used patriotism to get re-elected. He is the only one, who benefited from 9-11.

    Historians are rarely correct in the judgments of the times they are living in.

    Truman also killed thousands of innocent people. A REAL role model for Bush.

    Right, we should have retaken the islands without the bomb, whatever the cost. Get a life.

    Blame America first, rught?

    Don't end a war - keep it going for another 6 months and maybe Japan would have surrenered anyway

    So what if another 500,000 US troops would ahve died - better then using the bomb on the enemy

    So far the 'Surge" has created a new record month for U.S casualties. What a genius....

    Im sure the ranking is even lower now in 2007 than it was in 2004.

    We will see if anything Bush did ended well.

    It is very unlikely.

    International athorities on world policy have not rated his policies very high for their results.

    What in the world do you people see as their long term gain?

    Do you have anything real to state or is it just blather about him being Good for the international scene?

    You are of course correct...we need to remove Bush. In fact we need to disband our government and let International Authorities on world policy determine the course for the United States of America, at least as far as foreign policy goes. ....
