As many of my regular readers know,
I have been very supportive of President George Bush.
In fact, I may have been part of the 20% that still supports the outgoing President.
President Bush made mistakes.
I am not happy that the federal government has become fiscally irresponsible.
Donald Rumsfeld should have been released after Abu Grab.
Yet, given the chaos of the 2000 election, media pundits questioned Bush's gravitas and if he could govern the new nation. Then 9/11 happened and the media said nice things about George Bush until the Democratic Presidency Primaries of 2004. As much as the National Broadcasting Company likes to bash Bush, the United States of America and the world is in a better place because Al Gore and John Kerry lost to George Bush.
History will be kinder to President Bush than popular culture.
If one looks at a map of the Middle East, one can see that the United States has two strategic footholds in both Israel and now Iraq. Because of the strong, but unpopular, actions that he took, President Bush is a hero to at least Africa.
