What do you think Bush should take credit or blame for happening during the last eight years?
The Democrats think many of the problems we face today are at least partially due to Bush's lack of leadership or policy decisions. Some Republicans say that none of the economic, international problems are Bush's fault. So... What EXACTLY do you think Bush should claim credit or take blame for during the last eight years?

Let me put it this way. If I had to rate Bush on a 0-10 scale. I would give him a solid 3.

The Housing Market crash shoudln't be blamed on Bush. More like Frank, Dodd, Maxine Waters, etc. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MGT_cSi7Rs The record deficit and his inability to use his VETO Pen, is absolutely his fault.

I am quite sure OTHERS will have enough blame for him to not feel the need to bother. Do you think the previous administration will EVER accept blame for 9-11?∙ - SOMALIA, The sub-prime mortgage fiasco?

He has always been a buck stops here President. Or else he would have come out and used the pulpit to tell Americans the 9% approval rating for congress is justified.

I don`t blame Bush Jr. for the republicans giving away our industrial might because it started with Reagan lifting tariffs and Clinton did not help by signing the Republican NAFTA agreement.

I think Bush should be given credit for taking swift action against terrorists in Afghanistan after 9/11 and preventing further attacks here on our soil. You have to admit Clinton never did anything like that after they attacked us before, and seeing as how we haven't been attacked like that since then, it must be due... More
