    It's been a while so I don't remember it all, but he sent me to Iraq a fuck load. Which kind of sucked (although it was also a good character builder).

    Also made flying a real pain in the dick.

    He established the 10% tax bracket, which Obama I guess decided to make permanent. I only figured this out from the other thread. Prior to 2001, we only had a 15% bracket at the bottom. The Bush cuts were extended by Obama for 2 years, which means in 2011 it should've gone away, but here we are and in 2017 the 10% bracket remains.

    That's about all I can think off of the top of my head.

    I did a lot of drugs in the Bush years and I'm now a relatively successful, well-adjusted 40 year old. Thanks, George!

    Positives: He sent me money once.
    Negatives: The TSA is the worst thing that has ever happened. I'd rather just have more 9/11's.

    Mission accomplising is high on the list! He showed me that the slaves have learned to love their chains. He showed me that, really, America only has three or four dependable military allies (depending on how you want to count). He showed the entire world the limits of the American military and the results of a fools hope of half assed occupation. I would hope that he showed us just how cancerous military contractors can be. These things... they're not pleasant. But it is better to know them.

    He also taught me how to say nuclear. I say it that way now.

    For the list of negatives... well, it's pretty long one too.

    Lend covered it, but Obama could have easily stopped it. He made a choice about the role of his administration, it wasn't something that happened by accident.

    He chose NOT to stop it, a choice to let it happen which is not the same thing as "oops, it happened".

    And it's one of the few things that he doesn't toot his own horn taking credit for. Because it's a hard thing to take credit for. As you say, they were all States initiatives.

    If you think President Rmoney wouldn't have cracked down on that shit and cracked down on it hard then I submit to you: that belief is [trump]wrong[/trump].

    his bailout shit in 2009 saved my stock portfolio from melting down probably, world was hours away from financial collapse but probably romney would have done the exact same thing
    other than that more or less done nothing which is fine by me

    This is also true. He could have done better. A large part of what he did was kick the can.

    But McCain, Romney? They wouldn't have kicked the can.

    The next President, probably even Trump if he understand that he can do it, has a stronger position to call for reclassification because of Obummers can-kicking.

    Made me involved in a LOT of awkward conversations.

    Also indirectly lead to my insurance premiums more than doubling from what they were a few years ago.

    I couldn't imagine the awkward shit a black dude who leans right would have to take in everyday life, especially if he was out of the closet.

    Probably my biggest gripe about GWB. The guy enacted TWO tax cuts while initiating two wars. It was part of what spiraled the country into a massive deficit. Wars are expensive, why the fuck would you decide to cut taxes then?
