The worst Criminal we’ve ever had in office. He was and is a failure. This has been the worst 7 years of American history with the Bush crime family running the country. Everyone around him is just as bad as he is. It will take several decades to recover from his poor leadership. I think was Nixon is better then Georgie.

Why was success even mentioned in your title. That word should not be used in conjunction with the current President

While I think in many ways Nixon had the qualities of a common street hood he must be given credit for opening relations with China, a much better policy I believe than the previous one of covering our collective eye and pretending China didn't exist. So far I've seen no similar redeeming value in Dubya's regime.

In most thinking of other people it’s normal to think of all that they have been, done and how well they helped others ~ success just seemed to be the correct word. However it can be used in how well criminals get away with their crimes! I guess you might say he is a success in that case?

Time will tell. In the meantime, I think we should declare his entire administration traitors to the country and visit upon them the same 'interrogation tactics' they all approved for suspected terrorists. Maybe Gonzales will finally 'remember' things?

Maybe THEN we will finally learn the truth of just how corrupt his reign has been...

Can certainly agree he is very bad, beyond bad, and I didn't vote for him, either.

After Bush's action (or lack therof) in Hurricane Katrina there was no redemption for his presidency. Straight downhill.

Overall, Bush has been a mixed bag...

SUPERB SUCCESSES
Tax cuts!!!!!!!!!!
Awesome judicial picks, especially Roberts and Alito
Telling Kyoto to kiss off
The fact he's a Christian and not shy about sharing it
Withdrawing from the ICC (another globalist POS)
Waging war against Islamofascists (and calling them that)
Ingoring whiny European liberals
No attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11

HORRIBLE FAILURES

Medicare Rx entitlement (FDR & LBJ would be proud)
Signing McCain-Feingold's attack on free speech
"No Child Left Behind" and letting Ted Kennedy write it
Huge pork-laden Energy, Farm, and Transportation bills
Domestic spending bigger than ever
Undermining good conservatives to keep RINOs in office
Unwillingness to fight Dems on so many key issues
The whole Mexican/illegal-alien/amnesty fiasco!

So yeah...like I said, mixed results. He's no Reagan, but not nearly an abysmal flop like Carter either.

Pleeeze... Nixon was a thug—and a Keynesian (socialist) one at that!

Huh?

Actually he only used the term "Islamo-fascist" for about a week, until the Saudi guy that he likes to hold hands with told him to stop doing that.

The tax cuts are great, now we can pass on all our increasing debt to our kids.

Isolating ourselves politically from the rest of the world on the environment and Iraq invasion has killed all the goodwill we built up with Europe and the world since WW II. Even the Brits are tired of us. If you think the US does not need allies you're not following world events too closely.

Sure he is a Christian come election time and likes to talk about how he prays, but he has not done anything meaningful in 8 years to help the Christian bloc. Most Christian leaders actually grade him very poorly.

No attacks on US soil - why should they? They have been having fun killing another 3000 Americans in their own backyard. Don;t even need to learn how to fly planes this time.

No, the bag is not too mixed when you dig deep into it.
