His approval ratings seem to indicate so.He didn't all that badly...
I don't get it. Should he have done this? Was there ever any reason to believe he would have?Something that he did not do, was put Muslim/Arab-Americans into concentration camps like the Japanese were during WWII.
And plunged them into a civil war that has caused millions of deaths and displaced persons.While met with anger at home, he launched a war in Iraq that freed millions of Iraqis from an oppressive dictator.
And they're still there.His Afghan War, was a response to al-Qaeda which was believed/was residing in the country.
I have no interest in a really long and protracted political argument (I have other outlets for that) but I think it's important to look at the other side of things. Bush may have had good intentions at first; I don't doubt that. But he failed to achieve tangible results.
