Skip to comments.George W. Bush: Man of the Decade
Posted on 12/28/2009 7:04:54 AM PST by Neoavatara
Clearly, this is my month to really annoy liberals. After picking Rush Limbaugh as Man of the Year, I pick the liberal version of Satan as man of the decade. But again, I ask you, read my arguments, and then make up your mind...
Most decades are defined by the Presidents who dominate them. FDR dominated the 30s and 40s. Eisenhower the fifties, LBJ the sixties. The Seventies were the decade of incompetence. The eighties clearly was Ronald Reagan's, and Clinton dominated the nineties. In the same way, for good or ill, President George W. Bush had the most profound affect on the last decade, and that is why he is clearly my person of the decade.

I’d have picked Glen Beck as Man of the Year & Dick Cheney as Man of the Decade.
I think THAT would pi$$ off the lib-tards even more that Limbaugh and GWB.
I would have picked Sarah Palin as Man of the Year.

“History will most liked judge Bush most harshly regarding the economic crash of 2008. His administration and the Federal Reserve clearly did not see the signs of the impending housing bubble burst.......”

Setting the Record Straight: Six Years of Unheeded Warnings for GSE Reform
The Washington Times Fails To Research The Administration’s Efforts To Reform Fannie Mae And Freddie Mac
Over the past six years, the President and his Administration have not only warned of the systemic consequences of failure to reform GSEs but also put forward thoughtful plans to reduce the risk that either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac would encounter such difficulties.
In fact, it was Congress that flatly rejected President Bush’s call more than five years ago to reform the GSEs. Over the years, the President’s repeated attempts to reform the supervision of these entities were thwarted by the legislative maneuvering of those who emphatically denied there were problems with the GSEs.
* April: The Administration’s FY02 budget declares that the size of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is “a potential problem,” because “financial trouble of a large GSE could cause strong repercussions in financial markets, affecting Federally insured entities and economic activity.” (2002 Budget Analytic Perspectives, pg. 142)
* May: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) calls for the disclosure and corporate governance principles contained in the President’s 10-point plan for corporate responsibility to apply to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. (OMB Prompt Letter to OFHEO, 5/29/02)
* February: The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) releases a report explaining that unexpected problems at a GSE could immediately spread into financial sectors beyond the housing market.
* September: Then-Treasury Secretary John Snow testifies before the House Financial Services Committee to recommend that Congress enact “legislation to create a new Federal agency to regulate and supervise the financial activities of our housing-related government sponsored enterprises” and set prudent and appropriate minimum capital adequacy requirements.
* September: Then-House Financial Services Committee Ranking Member Barney Frank (D-MA) strongly disagrees with the Administration’s assessment, saying “these two entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are not facing any kind of financial crisis The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.” (Stephen Labaton, “New Agency Proposed To Oversee Freddie Mac And Fannie Mae,” The New York Times, 9/11/03)
Rest @ above link
would have picked Sarah Palin as Man of the Year.
Me too...Sarah seems to be more a “man” among GOP ranks than any of their “men” incl. the phoney conservative GWB.
I have picked Sarah Palin as Man of the Future Decade.
CLEARLY, George W. Bush is the Man of the Decade. There is no other option.
I'd like to see the credentials of everyone who makes this spurious accusation from the comfort of their homes, and see what "manly" things they have done.
Keep that hate alive, elenil21. It does wonders for one's mental health. /s
George W. Bush - MAN. Character, courage, integrity, honesty, honor, faith, class, patriotism, servant-leadership.
Would that there were more people who had the qualities he possesses and served this great country with such honor.
Were “keeping us safe” the only criterion for election to the “Man of the year” malarkey any number of political poseurs would qualify including the big zero in the WH now...who in fact has not experienced a 9-11 yet. Your
“man” did. Under his watch. He is the one who did the sword dance with the wahhabis. He is the one who crawled up to Kennedy and the NO child left behind monstrosity and he is the one who signed the bailouts. He is also the one who signed the death warrants of Christian allies in Europe by recognizing a jihadi narco state in Europe. Shall I go on? I will next time you post BS about him.
GWB is every bit his father...and worse.
