There aren't too many things in this world that are more thrilling than to tell a liberal that Bush is one of the greatest presidents of all time and watch them just about have a coronary. It's like dangling a piece of meat at a dog, they can't help but bite. The good thing is that beyond being a great debate starter, it's true. Let me tell you why Bush is great and is bound for history as such.
* War presidents have almost always gone down as greats. Not because Americans love violence but because they love peace. Every war I can think of that America has been involved with has been a noble cause. Yes libs, even the current war. That doesn't mean that America is spotless, I mean we have engaged in battles that we should have saved for another time and another place, but generally as a rule we have saved our wrath for those that have had it coming. So even though presidents are often branded as warmongers during their reign as commander, in time history has treated them well and I think George Bush will be no exception.
* If there were any sort of real, actual scandal, infidelity, bad habit, or inept leadership in George Bush it would have long ago been brought forward and would have stuck. We can tell this because the democrats have spent their every waking moment plotting, planning, searching, and begging for any spot or blemish that might bring Bush down a peg. He is one of the most hated presidents of all time. That doesn't mean he has the worst popularity rating, it means that those that do dislike him, hate him. And they have been tossing anything and everything against the wall hoping that something, anything will stick. It hasn't. In the meantime it has cost the democrats 2 elections and it may echo into the future. Trying to take down Bush is their only plan as a party. Bush has dodged it all with flying colors. This alone should qualify him for sainthood in my book.
* There have been NO major attacks on any state or city since 9-11. Before I move on let me say, there WILL be another attack on America in the future, probably during Bush's 2nd term still. But the fact that it hasn't happened yet is a huge miracle. And Bush and his administration have helped that happen. The patriot act, no matter what you think about it,
has saved countless lives . Sure, some innocent Arab may have had his library check out history looked at by the government, but it is the price we have to pay for safety. Bush must get credit for saving countless lives here at home.
Great presidents were never considered great in their time. Lincoln was hated almost as much as Bush is, but he goes down in history as one of the all time greats. Reagan has achieved immense popularity since his terms, but during those terms he had some of the lowest popularity ratings ever. Bush WILL turn into a Reagan or a Lincoln, mark my words. My only question then for the democrats is: How long will you continue being on the wrong side of history?
