    George W. Bush's low popularity is a liberal myth created by the nutty far-left, and spread by the willing lap-dog leftist media. In reality, Bush's popularity is split pretty much along party lines, close to 50/50 in the United States. It's been rising since Barack Obama became President, as Americans now have a point of reference to compare too. Give it 4 more years, and when Obama's brand of big-government socialism doesn't work, and the nation is in tatters, Americans will be longing for the "good ole' days" of President George W. Bush. Millions already are.

    From your lips to God's ears. I don't remember the left ever being so obsessed with a former president in all my 62 years. Except Kennedy of course only because he was assassinated and a skirt chaser. But that's OK. As you stated, keep Bush's accomplishments in the forefront so the Barry from Kenya fan club can have something to compare a socialist to a God fearing patriot.

    Under W, we had an average deficit of "only" $250 billion per year ($850 for every man woman and child per year). Our current president is averaging over $1 trillion deficit per year (over $3,400 per year). Popularity is a comparative sport.

    @woodtick57 - and Obama has doubled (actually quadrupled) down on those policies (if he lost the election, Obama would have taken W's position in your statement above). I'm not interested in defending any big goverrnment policies, but some perspective based on reality is in order.

    @woodtick57 - He will be considered a saint for being the last president to be able to hold our unemployment rate at 4%. From here on out, with obama's terrible precedence, we will have chronically 8% and above unemployment for the rest of our existence.

WE NOW KNOW JIMMY "I AM BILLYS BROTHER"SMILES BIGGER EVERY TIME "THE BAMMER" IS ON TV, BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE IS NOT THE WORST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY. BILL SMILES BIG AND BRIGHT ALSO WHEN HE HEARS "THE BAMMER" Is in another problem. wait does this make me "BAD" a hatter for using my right of "FREE SPEACH"?

    Could you tell me his policies that make you view him as our greatest president in regards to Reagan and what policies makes Bush Jr. the second greatest president? I can tell you why I don't like Obama or Bush and I can also tell you I'm not a huge fan of Reagan for giving us the "war on drugs" causing us to spend trillions of dollars on non violent crimes. I see you feel very strongly so just wondering why you feel that way?

    Someone posted one of Ron's speaches on facebook, but did not say the source. It was immediately blasted as trash from a "black Muslim" After a long series of rants, the source was revealed. Reagan's views were closer to Obama's than Romney's. I doubt he would have approved of Bush II. While he is not my favorite president, the right should take a close and long look at what he stood for.

    The damage this man has caused to our country and the world is still being borne out.
    His abysmal legacy and popularity has yet to hit bottom.

    History will be kinder to Richard Nixon than GW Bush. 2 recessions including nearly pushing the economy into a second great depression, 2 wars one of which was based on totally fabricated 'evidence', ignoring at least 28 warnings prior to 9/11, sitting in a kindergarten class for 7 minutes reading My Pet Goat after being informed of the attacks, taking a budget surplus and destroying it, failing to capture or kill Osama bin Laden. The list goes on and on. Bush was the worst President we ever had.

    @PNWest You forgot my favorite part....flying off to Offut AFB and shimmying down a spider-hole while he handed off the reins of power to Dick Cheney. ;)

    Obama truly makes George Bush look like a great President. Bush would have had us out of this recession we've been in after a couple years.

    In politics a few tears is forever, people will forget, and he will do a few things to get good publicity, so yes it will. But those who follow politics will never forget what he really did. He committed treason by putting u.s. troops in harms way to launch an unnesseary war. He failed to uphold his oath to protect the u.s. from attack by ignoring warning memos and thereby not doing all he could. If had the attackers likely would have been stopped, as happened in the clinton era with the plans to attack la airport. He violated the oath to protect and iphold the constitution by pushing for and signing the patriot act and creating dept of homeland security, which gave him short term political gain, but did little to enhance the security or fight terror, oh yea, and he let bin laden escape in tora bora, and put his family on planes out pf the country after 9/11 failing to question them, opting indtead to violate the geneva convention and use torture on many people who probably knew far less. I could go on, but with regard to what I think of W, I think people get the idea...

    I am a conservative and Bush II makes me cringe. It's people like him, and his Xitian Fundie buddies and other assorted neocon trash, whom have wrecked the Republican party to where it is likely not going to recover.

    I received my Purple Heart for injuries sustained in Iraq, 2007 from President Bush himself. I saw the sincerity and pain in his eyes when he asked about my story. So all who say he doesn't care about those of us who were casualties of OIF/OEF, u can take ur close minded liberal asses to Iraq or Afghanistan and stay there! Not to mention I went to war as a infantryman on my own accord and would do it all over again injury and all!

    Nope....my wet dream is for him to rot away in a cell somewhere with the rest of his staff or id like him and his staff to be publicly executed

    Yes it will. Bush was a great leader in difficult times. He believed in ownership and responsibility. People were to stupid to take advantage of his policies. During the Bush years I was able to buy a home and keep it , baught 5 new cars, and have a good savings I can't say that now that Osama Obama is in charge he's a financial terrorist that is killing the American dream. If he wants to give more money to the government be my guest but leave mine alone. He reminds me of the sheriff on blazing saddles screaming hepp me hepp me do what he say do what he say oh Lordy lord

    Funny, we keep hearing from republicons about, quit blaming George W., yet at the same time ... where was he during the last two elections? Bush was nowhere to be found ... while Clinton was out campaigning hard for Obama? In fact he was giving a speech to investment bankers in one of Mitt's favorite tax shelters in the Cayman Islands. Bush may be popular somewhere but it sure isn't with any of the last candidates that ran on the GOP presidential ticket nor would I expect him to be invited by anyone in 2016.

    Bush's one redeeming quality is how swiftly and appropriately he handled 9-11. In 2001, he impressed me. It quickly spiraled downhill, and his reputation will never recover. He will take his place among mediocre presidents but he will not be remembered the way Hoover was, at least.
