The legacy of President Bush was a recent debate among history professors in the April 4 edition of The Wichitan.
In the article, professors Hendrickson, Hewitt, Kindig and Collins argued over the legacy the unfortunate President will leave behind once he finally steps out of the Oval Office.
Hewitt pointed out that the economy is Bush's strongest asset.
"I don't think he destroyed the economy," he said. "I was surprised that the Republicans didn't use the economy to their benefit in their last election."
Just drive to a local gas station, look at one's paycheck, the cut in education, social services and non-defense funding in general—one will get a nasty mouthful of the Bush's economic strategy and beneficial economy.
According to a recent article in The New York Times, Bush pulled an old political trick out of his bunny-of-incompetence hat and used a little term called "recess of appointments" to cloak and implement his three choices for political offices from the watching eyes of liberal Congress.
His first choice:
Sam Fox was a major donor to the Republican party and funded over $50,000 to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, a group that lied about Senator John Kerry's war record to help push the incumbent President across the finish line of another term.
His second choice:
Susan E. Dudley was appointed to the Office of Management and Budget where she will oversee new and existing regulations for federal agencies despite the fact that she has criticized the implementation of regulations, ranging from fuel economy standards to national drinking water standards.
Talk about concern for the economy.
The President also slipped Andrew Biggs into a lucrative position, giving him the appointment of deputy commissioner for the Social Security Administration.
Biggs is known for his brain child: Wanting to partially privatizing the program.
Moreover, the social service administration has been "using questionable arguments and projections to help support Bush's drive for creating private accounts" to take the place of our failing social system.
Hmmm… it seems the incompetence bunny still has a few tricks up his sleeve.
