Good Guy? Not even close.... History will never make him a good guy.

If in doubt which "Bush" was being polled, you have the option to go look. Its not the "wrong" Bush. Its not a faulty OP either, since it exists and FOX aired it, but nice try with smoke and mirrors, trying to make it a "Troll" thread, since it ruffles your feathers. If you have a problem with News, don't participate.

He does in their "History" based on what they know and/or experienced. It wasn't meant for "Historians" and long debates.

That is only your opinion, not a good one at that. You have closed your mind to anything good that the man did. I guess his accomplishments in Africa and in combatting AIDS make him worse than Stalin in your twisted mind.

I'm sure these students wouldn't be able to tell you who the participants in WW2 were or probably who was on what side in the Revolutionary War. Astounding what's happened to educations but they're probably all cultural studies majors.

At least Christopher Columbus was selected a respectable #12 near the top of the list.

No kidding it wasn't ment for historians or anyone with half a brain. It was a "survey" for the least educated, most biased group of college students they could find and deliberately excluded anyone who actually knows history. In other words it means absolutely nothing except to prove how partisan and intellectually dishonesty the left is.

Big Deal...Lets overlook the 4000+ Soldiers that died for a War he started against a Nation that never killed an American, the Torture Policies he and Field Marshall Cheney made, the kidnapping and rendition, the 200,000 + dead Iraqis, the Trillions in Tax Dollars it cost, and the Treaties he broke, because he fought "Aids." Lets all stand up and cheer.

Twisted mind.....that's precious....

Thank you Doctor Hakkon for your Analysis of this subject. I will be looking forward to its publication for the sources of your research.

It must have been a Conspiracy to find 7000 biased, uneducated College Students

I'm going to take your issues one at time. First of all, the president did not start any war, Congress was responsible for both wars. Second, name the one nation in which 4,000+ U.S. soldiers died. This ought to be good.
