Worldwide, opinions of the United States have probably never been more negative in the history of our great nation. As CNN contributor Jack Cafferty points out, President George W. Bush would leave the Oval Office a wreck of what it once was prior to his inauguration. Not that former President Bill Clinton was necessarily the greatest man ever to walk through the Oval Office, but he certainly left the country better off than it is today. Clearly, Clinton was not without his flaws and scandals. But, where is this country right now? Many view Bush II as a man of great charm, but one who lacks depth. Here is one quote I extracted from the article (which I will link below) that particularly caught my attention. “George Bush’s record as a student, military man, businessman and leader of the free world is one of constant failure. And the part that troubles me most is he seems content with himself. He will leave office with the country $10 trillion in debt, fighting two wars, our international reputation in shambles, our government cloaked in secrecy and suspicion that his entire presidency has been a litany of broken laws and promises, our citizens’ faith in our own country ripped to shreds. Yet Bush goes bumbling along, grinning and spewing moronic one-liners, as though nobody understands what a colossal failure he has been. I fear to the depth of my being that John McCain is just like him.” Whether you agree or disagree with his words, the statement is powerful.
