  • I think he will be remembered. It takes time to know how a president will be remembered because sometimes it takes years for history to reveal the impact they had on our government.

  • I think he will be, not exactly in a good way though. Then again, who knows.

  • First he is not George Bush, Jr.

    His name is President George Walker Bush.
    His father was President George Herbert Walker Bush.

    It will take a while but I believe the country will grow to respect the actions of President Bush iin retrospect.

  • I have no respect for W. (do you prefer that name?) He is the worst President the US has had in the history of the country. Not only do I have no respect for this self elected President, he has made a mokery of the USA. GREAT JOB, Jr.!

  • If he was't leaving the country teetering on the brink of financial disaster, there might have been a chance of rescuing his legacy and place in history. But now? He's not going to be remembered kindly at all.

  • he didn't do all the damage to the country's financials by himself...hello, dorks! anyone ever hear of pelosi, frank, or just the lending system in general? or better yet, those of you to agreed to purchase items (homes, cars, crap) that you can't afford..and now are in foreclosure, bankruptsy, or $1000s in debt because of YOUR OWN frivilous spending...how is that W's fault?

  • Applause to Hairnazi :-)
    As soon as I saw "self elected" from Tetona, that was all I needed to see this wasn't a tasteful question. Rather one to bash. And asked on Christmas Day... sad, sad, sad...

  • He will be remember and historians will reflect on him in a positive light, somewhere in the future but not now. I think he had so many huge challenges and serious problems early on in his presidency. Most of his influence will yield long term results and will not be credited in the short term. But for now, it's no love lost.

  • He always will be the 43 rd President of U.S. Nobody can't take that away. He is just a President.
    President don't make laws,Congress makes laws .Who elects Congress and Senate??????????? The citizens of the U.S. So when you don't like something what your state Senator or House of Representative is doing call him/her and ask questions.
