Still By His Side, Bush Supporters Say He Got a Bad Rap

Although President Bush, an eager and capable campaigner, was pushed into the shadows by fellow Republican candidates this year, his loyalists still have his back.

Insiders believe that the optimistic and steadfast President has been misunderstood. Perhaps more frustrating to supporters: the recent financial crisis has left the administration little chance to go out on a positive note or give attention to his legacy.

Even so, former Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer says Bush is confident that history will be kinder on him than his contemporaries. Do you think time will make the Bush Presidency look better or worse than it does now?

Haha, you can barely tell that President Bush isn't a liberal. Needless wars of aggression have been a hallmark of the left for the last century. He presided over a huge increase in government and spending. If he had (D) next to his name, I'm sure he'd have some rabid fans here.I've seen some people complaining that he violated our civil liberties, while our new President voted to extend the Patriot Act. There are some funny divisions that are pretty clear to those who aren't party animals.

I have always supported him, voted for him twice, I am not a fair weather conservative. I also do not hold him on a pedestal and think he is beyond reproach or criticism, I am not happy with every decision he has made but I fully have his back. He won his presidency fair and square, gave us 8 years of service and i am thankful to him.

UnDave in one breath you say we need to look ahead and in another you blame Clinton? Yes this was started in the Clinton admin. by the republicans. Bush and Cheney added much fuel to the fire!

"the administration little chance to go out on a positive note or give attention to his legacy." Oh please, Bush did this mess to us and he didn't even try to get America out of the mess he helped to put it in. And I agree *Pinky* last comment.

"Bush's time, love him or hate him, is coming to a close. Let's look ahead now."Great sentiment. The old arguments are just that, old. Bush did what he thought was best for the country, in spite of what the MSM said about him. I thought an impeachment would've been the best way for him to clean the slate. I'm sorry Pelosi used that as a campaign tool, instead of following through on her promises. As far as our current condition, that was started in the Clinton administration, when Fannie and Freddie were directed to guarantee loans for people that weren't exactely able to afford those loans. It's no wonder that the 5yr arms that people had suddenly went sour in 2003, 04, and 05. The loan companies found a way to make more money, and capitalized on it. That isn't Bush's fault.

I also think his horrific legacy will stand up over time. When Clinton was impeached he had extraordinary approval ratings, because so many people felt the impeachment was a right wing witch hunt. The whole thing was based on misinformation about his personal relationship. You cannot even begin to compare lying about fooling around with another woman to sending thousands of people into their deaths in some battle he lied about to get us into. And the financial burden of that debt will impact generations ahead when cuts are made to other programs, like education for future generations or health care for seniors or the poor.

Watch the movie W when it comes out on DVD. (not worth going to the theater) But how did that man get a second term? A lot of Americans should be asking themselves why they voted for such an idiot.
