Did you think George Bush did a good job as our President? Why or why not?

Hey everyone! I was just wondering what everyone thought about George Bush's 8 yrs in office? Do you think he did a good job, a bad one, or mediocore? Do you agree with his decisions about Iraq among other things? Did you vote for him the first time the second time or both? If yes if you had to vote again would you vote the same way? I am hoping that this doesn't turn into anything slanderous. I am just wondering how people felt about it! I personally did not vote for him either time and support my decision in not doing so. The only thing that I actually approve of is the ban on partial birth abortion which I supported 100%.

He wasn't as bad of a president as the media makes him out to be. No, he wasn't good but he wasn't the worst thing to ever happen to this country either. People don't know American history, so they don't know how to interpret Bush within the course of American presidency. Nonetheless, his ban on partial birth abortion was good. His response to 9/11 was commendable and, it can not be denied, he has kept America free from attack in light of the hundreds of threats. We went into Iraq for the wrong reasons--I think he convinced himself that it was for WMD's, and it may partly have been so...however, going into Iraq was good, if for nothing else, than to remove Saddam from power. But it's long been time for us to get out. IMHO.

Put me down for a BAD job, a VERY BAD JOB...lol! I think his decision to go into Iraq was a bad one and even if it had had its merits his handling of it was atrocious! I did NOT vote for him the first time, I sure as heck didn't vote to reelect him and I couldn't be prouder of my decisions each time. I also agree with a ban on late-term abortion but with the exception for the life and health of the mother. Annie
