I'm not talking about what Barack Obama needs to be, I'm describing what George W. Bush was.
Not a single attack by terrorists on American soil since 9/11 and an economy that had 52 straight months of job growth before the Democrats took over Congress over 2 years ago. Inflation over his term was basically non existent, tell me of any other two term President who had that.
The Iraq war, though roundly critcized by the left, is over and is a success. A democratic country now exists in the Mid East with 25 million free people whose GDP is 30% greater than when Saddam was in power. The benefits of having a free Iraq in the Mid East will become very obvious over time. The benefits to the freedom of women alone will empower millions in that part of the world.
There's lots more, but we will need to get past the hysteria of an Obama inauguration before we hear much about it in detail. In fact, it takes a writer from the UK to even begin to address the issue.
George Bush wasn't glib, I'll give you that, but he always believed he was doing the right thing for the country and he has paid dearly for that.
Maybe a smooth talker with no experience is what we need as President, it certainly matches up well with our current vacuous cultural state.
