He certainly did turn an audacious fiasco into a trending success story, and he doesn't get enough credit for it.
With the de-regulators share of the blame for the economic meltdown and it's dubious solution hanging in the balance, the Patriot Act, Guantanamo, Katrina, and all the other partisan ram charging, into the war itself, and through the governing style that Obama has (thus far only) 'railed against' successfully... some people have a hard time seeing the guy's success stories due to their abiding hatred.
But that author is an obvious hack, so this piece ain't likely to turn it around for old Georgie. Better wait a few years and make another go at it.

The only reason Iraq didn't turn into a bigger cluster fuck is because of our courageous men and women that are serving. If they were of the same mold as Bush we would have Al Qaeda right here at our doorsteps.

I don't miss him half as much as he misses being the most powerful person on the earth... He said this morning he has a new domestic agenda: taking out the trash and mowing the lawn.

They were doing what President Bush ordered them to do! And if the President hadn't done what he did, al Qaeda would, indeed, be sitting on your dilapidated doorstep!!
