Miss Him Yet?

Well, considering the jug-eared purple-lipped gimlet-eyed psychopath presently squatting in 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. (or Hawaii or wherever he's off to on the latest of his many, many vacations) . . . yep.

Victor Davis Hanson:

Yet, as with all presidents, with time and a successor come perspective. So it is not hard to see why the out-of-office Bush’s likability ratings are slowly inching back up — most recently to 46 percent. For reflection on Bush’s eight years in office, take a look back at the six aspects of his presidency that harmed his popularity most — Iraq and its attendant controversies, the federal response to Hurricane Katrina, the so-called Bush-Cheney anti-terrorism protocols, the September 2008 financial meltdown, the chronic budget deficits, and the general impression that Bush was singularly inarticulate and prone to embarrassing gaffes.
