Please don't say better...there was nothing good about the Bush Administration.

There was a few good things about the Bush Administration.

I think it'll be viewed as better

Well after experiencing Obama for a few years, even a drunken monkey admin will seem incredibly fantastic. So, better.

Much better.

History will likely be much more objective and unbiased in judgment than those casting judgment of GWB today...

Exactly, Bush attempted to spread liberal democracy to the middle east which requires very progressive thought as the middle east doesn't look too favourably on Western ideals (of course, this sounds like a terrible idea to me), he was a stupid and incompetent socialist and a liberal:

Richard Nixon once said "History is written by liberals."

It's seen in a pretty poor light right now.

It's hard to see how it could be seen in a worse light than it already is, but I highly doubt it will be seen in a better light.

Although you never really know. After George Bush, I can almost see Richard Nixon's administration in a better light than I did at the time...so, if we get someone even worse than Bush...(shudder)...

can it get much worse?
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/11/09 - 5:23:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
I suppose that depends on how the next 15 years go.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/11/09 - 5:25:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd say better strangely enough. It's hard to understand how bad something was unless you experienced it yourself.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/11/09 - 5:27:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
He did do one good thing: he helped Africa out a lot. I'm not saying that made him an even remotely good president, I'm just saying it wasn't nothing but bullsh*t.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/11/09 - 6:22:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Better. Even if it may not be.

People like to hark back to the "good old days", pretend that things were better when they were younger; there was less crime. less drug abuse, better schools, better behaved teenagers and so on. We have a bizarre predisposition to view the past through rose tinted glasses.

Better. It's always criticised here for one reason or another, especially for events after 9/11. But the fact remains that, yes 9/11 happened, but there were no more attacks on a similar scale. What ever they did worked.

It had never happened before either, what does that tell you?

Better. I couldn't really be seen as worse, could it?

Sorry, exactly how did he help out Africa? If I remember correctly, his first move as president was to cut funding to most of their STD ed/prevention and family planning clinics that we had previously funded.

Under his tenure, Zimbabwe devolved into chaos, violence, and starvation; genocide continued in Darfur; war was prevalent in the Congo; Somalia was over-run with militant fundamentalist muslims; piracy off the coast of Africa increased; and Egypt - one of the beacons of reason and progress in Africa - imprisoned opposition leaders in order to protect their sham democracy.

"The president has tripled direct humanitarian and development aid to the world's most impoverished continent since taking office and recently vowed to double that increased amount by 2010 - - to nearly $9 billion."

""He should be known for increasing - - doubling development assistance and tripling it to Africa after a period in which U.S. development assistance was essentially flat for decades," Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in a recent interview with the Associated Press. "He should be known for the largest single investment in AIDS and malaria, the biggest health investment of any government program ever.""

Yeah, and Nixon was also forced out of office; so I'd hardly consider him a viable source.

Actually, the Twin Towers were attacked once before in 1993 during Clinton's (a Democrat) regime. The attack was obviously "unsuccessful" in the fact that the two buildings were left standing, but the fact remains that the terrorists were able to literally park a car bomb just outside the doors and detonate it.

So don't point your finger at Bush just because he has an "R" next to his name.

Worse. They've managed to cover up many of their blunders, and persuade some that others were not so bad as they will prove to have been.

Better.

Anti-Bush hysteria is at a high right now (well, it was probably a little higher towards the end while he was still in office) to the point where people become enraged if you suggest that he did ANYTHING good. Fact is, every administration has good points and bad points. As time goes on and the hysteria dies down, historians and regular people will be able to look more objectively on the Bush years and will find some good along with the bad.

The anti-Bush fervor is the biggest part of why Bush will be seen in a better light in the future- - people are ridiculously critical of the Bush years, so it's only inevitable that there will be a backlash. Popular opinion must always be questioned, at the time or later, if we're going to understand our history in any meaningful way.

Left off this list is the fact the dictator of Liberia, Charles Taylor, was removed from power.

Like I said, it's never all bad.

ooh, lucky Liberia. Too bad for Egypt, the Congo, Somalia, Zimbabwe and Darfur.
