footballhenry Posted October 26, 2005 Share Posted October 26, 2005 Of course we all have debated Bush and his policies ad nauseum here. I wanted to try to take a different perspective for debate. Especially Bush-hater here, try to abandon your critiques for just a moment. Purely on what kind of hand Bush has been dealt in his 4+ years as president, do you think he has been given one of the toughest presidencies to handle to date? Of course this can be difficult to answer because some of you may conclude that Bush got himself into alot of this mess, but thats irrelavant as well. Purely on merits of how 'tough' its been for the man. For example Carter, while I thought he was a horrible president, was dealt an extremely tough hand (i.e. Oil Shock, Iran takes U.S. hostages, USSR invades Afghanistan, etc.) Bush: Inherits a recession, September 11th Terrorist attacks, CIA leak, Katrina (among numerous natural disasters), Afghanistan and Iraq Wars (over 2,000 soldiers dead), Iran and North Korea nuclear threats, etc. Im sure Im missing some, but thats all I can think of right now. Whereas Clinton had a very 'easy' presidency (not much happened honestly, imho, well he did have that Jones thing, and that Lewinksy thing, lol). :2cents: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
