Bush may have seemed larger than life for eight years, but he left a surprisingly thin legacy. Take his legislative agenda. No Child Left Behind is now widely unpopular among both liberals and conservatives—so unpopular that Congress has spent the past five years assiduously avoiding a vote to reauthorize it. His tax cuts expired in 2010 and are now little more than a political football. His own party wants to repeal key provisions of Sarbanes-Oxley. The Supreme Court has effectively gutted campaign finance reform. On the foreign policy front, his wars are widely viewed as expensive failures. And he was never able to get so much as a vote on Social Security privatization or immigration reform.
That doesn't leave much. Pretty much all that's left is the PATRIOT Act and the Medicare prescription drug bill. That's not much for eight years.
Beyond that, neither party wants anything to do with him. It's not surprising that Democrats still think of him as the Frat Boy President, one of the worst of all time, but what is surprising is that Republicans largely agree. And speaking of draft-dodgers, Bush and his ebtire cabinet , cept for Rummy, were draft-dodgers. What a legacy, historians will line up at his grave waiting to take a leak on it.
No Child Left Behind was ONLY unpopular among union democrat 'teachers' all of whom are incompetent and fail to teach and didn't want to be held accountable for their extremely poor job performance. Most of these democrat union 'teachers' cant even pass the tests that the kids are required to pass and most of these democrat union 'teachers' only excel at pedofilia.
