Anne Penketh writes in The Independent:

Farewell President Bush. Goodbye “Axis of Evil”. From Tehran to Toledo, the people of the world are yearning for the end of eight years of a Bush administration that sacrificed America’s reputation on the altar of the “war on terror”.  Whatever else happens in this election, the new president will have the considerable advantage of not being George Bush.

Question: IS there any part of you today that will miss Bush?

No. Not one cell in my entire body will miss W. He's lost his comedic value and transcended self-parody to reach a new plain of tiresome irrelevance.

I don't think you should be too quick to call an end to the "Axis of Evil" era. Should McCain pull off the upset, we'll all be singing "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran." Obama is the only candidate that promises an appreciable shift in US foreign policy.

What I won't miss is all the Bush hatred out there.

None whatsoever.

That would be a big "Heck no!" from this Texan. If I never see that man's smirk again, it will be too soon. I'm also mighty tired of people blaming Texas for that Connecticut-born man's stupidity. Own up, Connecticut! :)

I learned a lot about him from an article written in the last year on his policies on Africa, and a lot I liked. But, there should have been more of that and less of the rest of his horrible policy decisions. I will be glad when he's long-forgotten in the line of bad presidents.

Not even the tiniest bone in my body will miss him. Good riddance and let the War Crimes trials begin.

There is not a "no"-meaning word strong enough for my sentiment.

The only good thing that came out of Bush was good Ministry songs.

Miss Bush? About as much as I would miss a malignant tumor.

Well, I hope I won't miss this - because hopefully people will stay active and involved, but I will miss the way his ignorance, his fear-mongering, his blatant favoritism, and his antipathy for the American public galvanized people to learn more about their political process, and to be active informed voters.

Wow. Most commenters have no sympathy for George W. Bush. So, I'll say a few kind words.

George W. Bush learned from his mistakes. He went from "you're either with us or you're with the terrorists" to multinational talks on the problems in North Korea. He learned to modify his strategy in Iraq, and to become more effective. Foreign troops have left several of Iraq's provinces.

He acted decisively when the financial crisis happened in the last month. By vastly increasing government spending when consumers were lowering their spending, he may have slowed or lessened the recession that we're going through. Equally importantly, this action showed that pragmatism is more important than position: his party strongly opposes government intervention.

I don't want to say that George W. Bush is a good president. He's not. Learning from your mistakes is costly -- and the costs were borne by the whole United States.
