Cheney was the prick. Junior was just a sad joke.

History will vindicate Bush Sr. as one of our better presidents.

I dont know some of us think Obama is a prick. I do think Bush probably thought his greatest accomplishment was getting re elected. All the people who kept calling him a bafoon and a moron couldnt beat him. I guess Obama feels the same way now.

I don't think he was a prick. I think he listened to his cabinet too much and didn't appear to make decisions on his own.

And regardless of his political career, he was a decorated naval combat aviator.

Not a prick. Bad moves combined with bad luck makes a disastrous tenure. Everything I defended him on this forum, I own up to though

Viagra is the answer. It started general availability around 1998, so father didn't have that luxury that the son did.

Re: So why was George Bush Jr such a prick?

The only good presidents are from the history books. And that's because they're dead and gone, and only a "history book" truth exists.

The average man's political involvement has been exaggerated and radicalized by easy access to every little bit of information, via the internet. Remember how nobody cared, back in the 80's, when everything was awesome? Or, politics were a hobby for intellectuals. With the internet, and constant political bombardment and world news, people have become much less productive, and much more involved in petty rhetoric.

Yep. The best president of all time was actually William Henry Harrison but historians willingly forget all his accomplishments.

Bush II wasn't a prick.

He was a sanctimonious Jesus freak asshole who fried his brain on coke.

Ironic that Obama is a failure for the opposite.
