The legacy of George Bush

As George Bush enters his final week in the White House many experts and observers are looking back on his time in office and what, if any legacy, he will leave behind. Unfortunately for President Bush the credit crunch will take centre stage on his future CV due to the very fact it has happened on his watch and at the very end of his term in office. However, aside from the credit crunch and economic turmoil of today the American economy has been very robust and very buoyant on his watch.

The problem which President Bush may have regarding his legacy is the fact that he allowed the US economy to push ahead to far too quickly and pushed more and more of the population into debt. Many believed that the property market would bail them out at a seconds notice but the resulting collapse in property prices has left many US citizens on the edge of the financial abyss.

You will probably go down in history as one of the most reckless, short-term thinking U.S. presidents of all time and that is even before observers begin to consider the Iraq war and the resulting war on terrorism. Whether this is a fair summary of George Bush's time in office is debatable but there are very few people in America sad to see him go.
