He's kicked ass in Afghanistan, done really well in Iraq, waffled on Iran, and fumbled on NK.
He sucks on border enforcement and appears to be a globalist.
He did great on Bolton to the UN, but I really don't understand what happened to Condi Rice.
The tax cuts were A+++, as (it appears so far) his two Supreme Court Nominees. If he can manage to appoint one or two more of their type, they will help shape his true legacy.
(Always provided there are no suitcase nukes and no overt war with China...)
The things he's good on, he's great on. But there are other things where it looks like he is taking conservatives for granted; or even using them cynically.
I agree with most of what you say here. I cannot say I'm sure we are doing "really well" in Iraq though.
I know the intentions were good, we started out well, but haven't followed through and it seems that it's not improving much in the past 6-8 months or so.
I wish he would communicate more of his plan and stop with tthe "Stay the course" phrase that many Americans are tired of. I fear that they are contiually bombarded with all the deaths on the news every day and then you see President Bush not conceeding to any missteps and just appearing stubborn.
Don't get me wrong, I am a strong supporter of Bush and the RNC, yet I see and hear what people are saying about Iraq and sometimes I can't disagree.
