During your tenure you had many opportunities for greatness – a response to 9/11, Katrina, the economy, employment, foreign relations…
However at each opportunity, rather than embracing the greater good and representing all the peoples of America, as you took an oath to do, you instead chose to act in the smaller interest of your own personal ideology. In fact, you even lied to the American people in pursuit of that ideology.
Greatness is seen in the thoughts and deeds of certain special men and women, who rise above their personal wants and needs and see a greater good. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Nelson Mandela, and Martin Luther King are just a few people who come to mind.
Mr. Bush, in the effort to advance your personal ideology you alienated the majority of Americans and the world. And economic disaster, record unemployment, the Katrina response, and two failed wars aside, this is what ultimately has defined your Presidency.
It is no accident that you having the lowest approval ratings of any President in the history of America. Who have you served? Yourself. And there is nothing great about that.
