    PRUDEN: Only 26 days left for Bush-bashing

    The worthies at the New York Times are worried, like George W. himself, about his legacy. They all should know better; legacies are not plucked from the pantry shelf, but develop over the years without help or hindrance from either critic or legacee. George W.'s critics are spooked by what happened to Harry S. Truman, who straggled back to Missouri with the contempt of nearly everyone ringing in his ears ("to err is Truman") and within two decades became one of our most popular ex-presidents. Now is the time to blame the president for everything bad, and give him credit for nothing good. It's mere coincidence that America has been safe from Islamist terror every day since 9/11.
    Gratitude always comes easier for the least among us. George W.'s compassionate conservatism has saved millions of lives in Africa, those who but for the billions of dollars this president spent there would have died of AIDS or malaria. His approval rating, in the low 20s at home (and no doubt near zero on the Upper East Side), reaches 80 percent in Africa, where women with a clearer understanding of reality name their sons after him. The bashers have to get their licks in now, while the bashing is good.

    Dangit, we won't have George W. Bush to kick around anymore.. I will miss him, not... I do think his Africa thing was a good legacy, but his domestic and war policies were not well thought out... If Iraq does well, then he will be look at kindly over the years.. I'm just not sure the cost merritted the possible stablization of Iraq. Our country will have to recover from a financial nightmare because of all these war decisions and domestic non decisions...

    I guess bashing Jimmy Carter ended in January of 1981. Oh wait.

    Anyone who loves this country will continue to "bash" a terrible President.

    Awwww, the young. Gotta love them. They weren't alive at the time.

    Wayward, the bashing of President Carter quickly halted after he left office. In fact, he was heralded for his work with "Habitat For Humanity" and was actually beginning to be viewed quite favorably. It wasn't until he started putting himself back in the political spotlight that the bashing started up on him again.

    I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

    Are you kidding? I know you aren't here often and might have missed it, but people continue to bash Carter, and compare Obama to him.

    Bad Presidents are "bashed" for years after they leave office. Republicans have used the fear of Jimmy Carter to win elections for three decades. The Democrats did the same thing with Herbert Hoover.

    Re-read my post Wayward. I stated that the Carter bashing HAD ceased after he left office and had started up again only after he began putting himself back into the political spotlight.

    I was one of those who had a new found respect for him with his work with Habitat For Humanity. I actually began RESPECTING him, but once he decided he wanted to be back on the political stage...
