“..was pounded by democrats and the media, given absolutely no praise just slaps he was given nothing.”
He never tried to defend himself and his silence gave his detractors the impression of guilt. Many of GW’s problems were self-created. I voted for him twice but his only legacy that I can think of is Obama. His depressive daze may be caused by the knowledge of some deep dark secrets that are about to be unleashed in our country. (Why did he never question Obama’s legitimacy for POTUS? And what about Cheney?))
Bush never tried to defend anything.
Our president is not the type of personality to berate people, remember whe he finally got to the Whitehouse he never responded to the critics of Clintons and the disgraceeful way they departed.
He crossed the “aisle” let Kennedy write the “No Child left behind” but Bush was criticized for it, the democrats said he didnt fund it, well, it is congress’s job to fund not the presidents.
I agree he was too much of “turn the other cheek” maybe he took that a bit too seriously.
I too voted twice, first time because Gore scared me to death, second time because of the war, I was never a total fan of Bush’s but he was what we had, he should have been given more respect, maybe just a few encouraging words would have helped.
I do agree also he did a poor job in addressing issues to the people he just doesn’t have that talent.
Where have we heard that before?
