Grading President Bush in 2007
Posted by Ryan on December 26, 2007
The constant liberal media and Democrat attacks on President Bush over the last few years have done permanent damage to how we, as Americans, view our 43rd President. Most people I know don’t even know why they hate Bush, they just do. Bush’s persistent problem has always been his poor articulation of vision and lacking the stick-to-it-ivness that is necessary in bringing the American people on board for any Presidential initiative (ie Iraq). So, here’s the teacher in me giving the president a grade for his performance this year:
For 2007 I give Bush a C-. In fact, for most of his Administration, the grade remains the same. To me, this year was balanced between the great and the poor on the three big issues this year: the war, illegal aliens, and the economy.
However, Bush has had other successes that the Republicans running for President need to take advantage of: the economy is still pretty good, but should still be safeguarded, not socialized; the Iraq War has turned a corner and those who’ve supported it during the dark times will look more Presidential and strong; and one must want to secure the borders and harm businesses that hire illegals, the polls have born that out all year. Essentially, the lessons of Bush can help the Republicans buck historical trends and keep the White House next year if they play their cards right.
