Look back at Bush's legacy
My Life Under Bush
My entire high school and college careers have been spent under the rule of the Bush Administration. Those early days seem so far away, especially before September 11th! I don't even think I remember what Bush was like before that time! So many terms and sayings will end up becoming synonymous with Bush's eight years in office: "With us, or against us," "Axis of Evil," "WMDs," "noo-cue-ler," "Mission Accomplished," or maybe not that last one. Some headlines I'd rather have seen over the years, "Osama bin-Laden captured!" "Taliban defeated!" "Peace in the Holy Land!" History will likely be kinder to Bush than his contemporaries are, but a Washington, Lincoln or Roosevelt he will not become. What is interesting to note is that some of the worst presidents in history have been followed by some of the best presidents, (Buchanan to Lincoln, Hoover to Roosevelt). Perhaps we will have a bright future to look forward to.
