That's right, dammit! Why should we care if he and half his administration is indicted? He's nothing but a stinkin' RINO so let them all twist in the wind. We conservatives should head for the tall grass, hide out from the assault from the left and return in 2008 to fight a new battle.

Yup. "W" will wind up in history as being an answer to a Final Jeopardy question.

Right again. "W's" actions and PR during hurricane Katrina were classic, clueless, "Bush".

Conservative brethren..ask yourself...what has he done for conservatives.....

The more appropriate question is what will "W" have done to non-prefix conservatives after his term is done. Will we get another Clinton?

Lets be fair to him. He tried and some of the show stoppers were not his fault but the fault of those in Congress who were supposed to support him.

Some key victories :

1) Tax cuts
2) Partial Birth abortion ban
3) Marriage Defense referendum passed everywhere.
4) Good to great judges on various courts in our country.
5) Approval of ANWR drilling in Alaska

Of course in the war on terror and foreign policy, I would say that on the net, he has been OUTSTANDING.

Some desired goals we could have met, which he fought for but could not win because of the spinelesness of his Congressional allies :

1) Social Security Reform/Privatization
2) Tax Simplification

Add your own pet conservative cause here....

Some defeats however were CLEARLY HIS FAULT.

1) McCain-Feingold assault on free speech <--- he could have vetoed, he did not.

2) Spending spending spending <--- Did you ever see Dubya veto anything ?

3) Steel tarrifs

4) Coddling with Ted Kennedy on Education ( spending has increased close to 100% since 2000 with little to show for it ).

5) And now --- the disastrous Miers nomination.

He's not all bad, but he could've been better.
