Is there anything this administration has done right? Anything? The Times is pointing to just one failure. I’ve thought about this for awhile, and I don’t see any positive legacy for President Bush. Nothing. The only legacy I can see him having is a pretty library somewhere. His legacy can be summed up in two words:
…on everything he’s touched.
Feel free to add your own failures of the Bush administration in the comments. And, by all means, tell me if there’s anything he has done right? Because after what I’ve seen for the past 7 years, I wouldn’t hire him to cook fucking Freedom Fries™ at McDonald’s.
Update: I have added a few from the comments. So far, it seems the only substantial accomplishment is the Do Not call list. I will give him that. It’s a good thing. But I agree with a commenter. If that’s all I got as the President of the United States, then I would off myself.
Update II: One thing I think the administration has done right. Robert Gates. I actually think this guy is a good SecDef. And I agree that Obama would be wise to keep him. But that was probably a fluke after a BushCheney binge drinking night. Still, flukes are sometimes good.
