However, this address of Senator Hatch's before the U.S. Senate is a good counter-balance to that kind of thinking and helps me look at Bush with a little more appreciation and respect. I recommend taking a good look at Hatch's evaluation of Bush's presidency. Personally, I think Bush's biggest sign of success is that there have been no terrorist attacks on our country since 9-11, though I'm sure they're still trying with all their might.
I'm pretty high on Obama right now, caught up in his charisma and the historical significance of his ascendancy. However, there's an accompanying shadow in my thinking that if Obama fails, the results could be much worse than Bush's failures, with another major economic depression, terrorists making new inroads into our country, and moral depravity further removing us from God's protection and blessings.
