DUBYA: Because he's hiding.
-- Dubya offers a ludicrous answer to a serious question, interview with Michael A. Fletcher and Jim VandeHei of the Washington Post aboard Air Force One, Jan. 14, 2005
Widely regarded as the worst or second worst president ever - for obvious reasons: In his four years and 4 months in office, he's ruined ever Social System in place, some as old as FDR's adminstration.
Economically, the Bush Administration is a total failure. A record deficit, pushing $750 Billion dollars (3/4ths of a Trillion) has been made from the Clinton Administration's surplus of $850 Billion (as recorded in January 2000). Import/Export rates have plummetted, unemployment is at one of the highest levels since the depression, and the dollar no longer holds its own with the only monetary competitor - the Euro. The current exchange rate as of writing this is $1.55 for ever 1 Euro.
Domestically, the Bush Administration is also a failure - Not since the Revolutionary War has the United States been so hated in Europe, and our growing reputation of being "The World Police" doesn't help. International Companies are feeling the pressure of being tied to the USA through corporate alliances and whatnot, while international tourism has dropped significantly since September 11th, 2001.
The wars in both Afganistan and Iraq, as well as the inevitable wars with Iran, Syria, Lebanon, and perhaps North Korea, have further fueled the Anti-War front to take action - on the second anniversary of the Iraq war, there were 5,000 protests worldwide, numbering in the hundereds of thousands of people gathering for one cause - the only other thing that has gathered that many people was the death of the Pope John Paul II.
The Bush Administrations policy of deceit doesn't end there though - The justifacation for war was that Iraq had Nuclear weapons, none of which were ever found. After their pretext for war was unveiled, they quickly shifted their agenda to "Liberating" the Iraq people, but after two years of occupation there, 63% of the Iraq population loathes Americans, and that number is apparent in the increasing nationalist insurgent attacks across Iraq.
Some other miscellaneous facts about the Bush Administration include privatizing Social Security, in essance, putting S.S. decisions in the hands of 'the working man', people who don't have economic or accounting experiance, in the hopes that they'll mess up and the government won't have to pay up. Other negating factors include the funding of a perspective Military Draft, drilling for oil in the last artic wildlife reserve funded by the US, and reports that both the 2000 and 2004 elections were stolen. While the former election may have been, it's unclear, although the 2004 elections have much more proof - noteably the fact that the touch-screen voter machines used in both Ohio and Florida were manufactured by Vice President Dick Cheney's 'former' company, Halliburton.
Unfortunatly, Bush will continue to lead our great country into ruin until 2008 rolls around and he cannot run again. Thankfully, republicans around the country are realizing what they did on November 2nd, 2004, and in the last month alone, Bush's approval ratings are 30% below what they were on Election day. Despite what neoconservative whiners say, the GOOD people of America will win this battle, even if it takes another 3 and a half years.
