As a student of history and having a keen interest in politics and the Presidents, I wonder what many of you think George W. Bush's biggest/most enduring accomplishment was or will be. I don't want to turn this into a bashing session, just interested in honest thoughts.

Free Women in Irac will lead to other free women in the middle east. This is history..........

Iraq will be his legacy. But not in a good way.

The liberation of Kuwait from Iraq is probably his biggest accomplishment.

We're up to 53 posts with only 3 actually answering the question. I prove to be prophetic once again.

I hate to think badly of anyone and always feel a bit guilty when I do. I felt a sorry for GWB at the convention when he wasn't wanted by his own party. I am a democrat and a faithful kool aid drinking obamatron, but I was still hoping a few of the obama haters could come up with something that bush accomplished in the 8 years he was president that is huge, there has to be something. I really can't count awareness of terrorist and I am not real confident that because saddam is gone from iraq that the women are truly free in that country. you need a peace and commerce in your country first. I think that country is still very much war torn.
