[+] serious ballot by cranky

``The country doesn't believe George W. Bush, it doesn't trust him, and with 19 months to go it's only going to get worse,'' predicts Ed Rollins, a Republican strategist who ran Ronald Reagan's 1984 presidential campaign. ``There is nothing the president can do to get his (poll) numbers back up.''

According to those polls, almost two-thirds of Americans disapprove of Bush's job performance; that is Richard Nixon territory. A majority of the public approved of the performance of the last two lame-duck presidents, Reagan and Bill Clinton, at this same stage in their administrations.

While the other major democracies have, or are about to have, new leaders, America is mired in a rudderless status quo. A new embarrassment or scandal -- Alberto Gonzales, Paul Wolfowitz, Karl Rove -- seems to surface daily; the only good news for the White House is that occasionally these stories overshadow the bad news coming out of Iraq.

Bush is reviled around much of the world, has precious little political capital at home, and seems surrounded by hacks or the forgettable and faceless.

Now, the dwindling band of Bush supporters have run out of fixes and are resigned to the contemporary assessments. Like Harry Truman, the patron saint of unpopular American politicians, Bush will be vindicated by history, they say. (Bloomberg)

Voted : No
George Bush will be vindicated by history in approximately the same way that Adolph Hitler has been vindicated.
Voted : No
Future Generations (of U.S. citizens) will look back and rue the day he took history unfolds, I believe any assessments of him will only get worse...
Voted : No
no. he will be villified by history -- justifiably so.
Voted : No
Because I've taken great pains to insure that his legacy will last throughout all time. Unless a nuke hits a certain server in Malaysia, the records will be there.
Voted : No

He is a blot on our nation's history. He makes Nixon look positively statesmanlike.

I just hate watching the slow bleed of my country until January 2008, when this horror of a man will finally be gone (fingers crossed).

"He is a blot on our nation's history. He makes Nixon look positively statesmanlike." - Mojo -

Mojo, don't you mean Johnson? Johnson's the one who escalated the war in Vietnam. And it was Nixon who (very statesmanly - if that's a word) opened up diplomatic channels with the Soviet Union and China.

"George Bush will be vindicated by history in approximately the same way that Adolph Hitler has been vindicated." - Margaret123 -

And Margaret, don't you think you're being ridiculously harsh? Come on! Hitler? Give me a break.

It's impossible to say right now. If, in 10, 20, or 30 years from now, Iraq is (still) a democratic nation, and its people aren't living under the thumb of an oppressively cruel dictator like Saddam Hussein, then yes, Bush will be vindicated. If, however, it all falls apart, and Iraq becomes like Iran, then no.
Yeah, Margaret.

Don't be so hard on Hitler.

Voted : No
Yes. He gets sexier every day and it gets harder to resist. Keep getting distracted by that grey catsuit though and am likely to stray ;-)
Voted : No
Johnson may have escalated a war, Bostonian, but as far as I know, he didn't create one from thin air. And isn't this ballot about Bush??

and -- um --

statesˇman (sttsmn)
1. A man who is a leader in national or international affairs.
2. A male political leader regarded as a disinterested promoter of the public good.
3. A man who is a respected leader in a given field: "a mature statesman of American letters" Toby Thompson.

statesmanˇlike, statesmanˇly adj.
statesmanˇship n.

Yes, it's a word. It just doesn't apply to George W. Bush.

(just speeding through, stopped long enough to give mojo a standing ovation)
