Your opinion. In my opinion, history will show that Bush was one of the worst presidents in U.S. history, doing untold damage to this country, specifically in the areas of international cooperation, civil rights, and the environment. He has also screwed up the economy, but he's only in the top three or four in that category (so far).
President Bush had virtually no control over the economy's recent downfall. Most analysts agreed before the election that the economy was headed for recession, and most agreed Bush would have a tough time handling the wrongful blame. The situation turned for the worse after September 11 when stocks fell greatly.
Bush is trying to fix the economy, but his plan is being debated. Until his tax cut is put into affect, we can not yet judge how he has handled the economic situation.
If anything Bush has advanced civil rights, by fighting to remove affirmative action. If you are unaware, affirmative action is something which is based soley on race, and discriminates against whites. He has also appointed a black Seceratary of State and a black female National Security Advisor.
