History will be harder on Bush than Obama

Reader comment on item: Predicting Iraq's Bleak Future

Submitted by Alan Hootnick (Chile), Jul 20, 2009 at 12:23

I agree with your commentary except for your "Fourth" point. I believe that history will be much harder on Bush than Obama in great measure due to the fact that most historians are Democrats, and that Obama is "in" and "trendy" and "politically correct," whereas Bush will continue to be viewed as "the worst president in modern times."

I pèrsonalñly believe, however, that the Obama Administration's worst decision to date is the CIA's cancellation of the programs to capture or kill bin Laden. This represents an unconditional surrender in the war against terror, and from now on Osama will go free, but those in the Bush Administration who tried to take him out (such as Cheney, among others) will be prosecuted and will probably go to jail. Shameful! Disgraceful!
