    During his entire 8yr tenure what exactly did Bush Jr. accomplished that has advanced America forward as a country?

    Most importantly, why do you on the right act as if b/c he he's not in Office anymore (thank God) that he doesn't matter, shouldn't be brought up and/or not to be mentioned again?

    Any takers?

    War on terror. That's pretty much it. The rest of his actions have been mediocre at best. Pretty disappointing.

    Still, at least he had some leadership skills. Unlike our current President.

    I would have mentioned the Supreme Court, but last week kind of makes that less spectacular.

    Hindsight is 20/20. Still better than the alternatives.

    LOL yep

    These assholes want to ask how GW made things better.

    How the hell has Obama made things better?

    A stimulus that cost to much and did not deliver as promised?

    An extremely Unpopular bloated health Care law that fails to solve the problem?

    All they have is Attacks, and diversion.

    How about an average of 4.5% uneployment during his term? Obama will never see that even if he is re-elected! Was it just it just happenstance that unemployment started to rise after the Dems took control of the House and Senate in 2006?

    He didn't!!! He was a big spending liberal, did nothing to stop the mortgage meltdown started under CLINTON and caused by CLINTON, he doubled down on the stupidity started by the CLINTON administration by making private student loans non-dischargable, he had a piss poor Afghanistan strategy and he foolishly lead the Iraq invasion. He sucked and was anything buyt a conservative!

    But because Bush sucked does that mean Barrack Obama (or even Clinton) were good Presidents? Not at all, so what is you point smokey?

    Few if any people say he was a good President no matter what side of the isle your on.

    Bush Jr wasn't a conservative, so why do you imagine any right-wingers are going to defend him?

    At least he didn't destroy the country as Obama is doing in rapid fashion.
