BS. Bush is not responsible for the behavior of people like Mark Foley, Abramoff and Weldon, but Bush sure is a convenient whipping boy isn't he? He's not even allowed credit for the tax cuts we enjoy, for us not having been attacked again since 9/11/01, for dropping federal funding of fetal stem cell research, dropping federal funding for abortions worldwide, trying to protect the sanctity of marriage...nothing. He is allowed NO credit whatsoever. He's the DEFINITION of "damned if you do and damned if you don't".
I am sure the one-trick borderbots who will disagree, though they don't help fight for the fence that the government is still fighting envirowackos in court to get built.

A lot of middle-income persons saw very little tax relief, as the taxes are so high as the “cut” was not observed otherwise.

You bring up some legitimately good things, but let’s be honest- those tax cuts were a joke, and Bush never framed them as WAY too small. He never pushed for anything deeper either, nor did he suggest we cut spending- quite the contrary.

(No Rudy McRombee for me! I'm voting for Ron Paul. The GOP can curl up and die.)
If any of the current candidates had half the balls of GW they might not have so much trouble getting elected. Maybe then if there was a someone who could be a real leader they would find the Republican Party would not be in such a state. The divisions were always there but without a good potential shepherd the sheep are getting a litle nervous.

Oh yes, don’t forget he put those Supreme Court judges in too, Alito and Roberts. No credit for that, Peggy????
