Certainly the worst president elected under the republican banner, of that there can be no denial. Presided over two congressional defeats and then the loss of the White House.
I can deny it.
Eisenhower was worse. Much worse.
Still, history will not remember the economy as readily as they’ll remember the fact that 9/11 happened. They’ll forget about the 7 years of plenty (and they’ll NEVER hear about the Congress that concealed all the malfeasance at Fred/Fannie).
They won’t remember the fact that the US went without another terrorist attack for 7 years.
Maybe they’ll remember the Ethanol bill that sort of led to the beginning of the end of the economy, and the Gorecle declaring an end to industrial prosperity at the very moment we were loaning billions to the companies that were polluting the planet. I doubt it though.
Maybe we’ll remember being able to get an abortion, but not being able to smoke a cigarette at a bar.
I doubt it though.
I doubt we’ll remember Heller, or the end of private property rights with the New London case.
Nope, and before it becomes unfashionable to say it anymore - It was all Bush’s fault.
What I AM noticing is that once the Chocolate Messiah got a real whiff of the intelligence the POTUS is privvy too, and got a look at the books from the inside, how not very different his policies seem to be from W’s at this point.
Same as the old boss, but this time in Living Color.
