It seems Americans’ views of George W. Bush’s Presidency are improving. A new CNN/ORC International Survey finds 55% rate it a failure. That’s down 13 percentage points compared to a CNN poll conducted in January 2009. On the other hand, 42%  of those polled rate the presidency a success. Up 11 points from when he left the White House. The poll was released on the eve of the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

    I temper my opinions of foreign policies of those in charge because they have access to information that we will never know, and they must make decisions on what is known at the time. GW did what he thought was right in order to protect us and our freedoms. Was he always right? No, and neither are any of us. At least he valued the lives of the unborn, religious freedom, and the rest of our Constitutional rights. These are things that we are losing under the present leadership. As for wishing anyone to go to hell, I leave that up to God in hopes that I and my loved ones will never suffer that fate.
