As of noon today Eastern Standard Time, George W. Bush is no longer the active President of the United States.
Many have said a great deal about his time in the White House, with mostly negative comments.
The only positive remark I have heard in recent days, besides various statements about the fact that he was (finally) leaving, was Bruce Tinsley of Mallard Fillmore noting that the Bush Administration had succeed in keeping America safe from internal terrorist attacks for over six years.
Of course the clock on that achievement started ticking after September 11th, 2001; but anyway...
The fact that the responsibilities of being the President of the United States is a serious undertaking goes without saying.
A couple of generations from now, history might be a little more unbiased towards the man and judge his performance more fairly, but that remains to be seen.
In the meantime, it's just best to remember the old adage: "If you can't say something nice..."
