History's view of George Bush may be changing for the better. I have been interested in politics since I was a very young person. My first real interest was when I thought that Adlai Stevenson should have been President in 1952. My biggest disappointment in politics was Barry Goldwater's defeat in 1964. Nixon's mistake was defending his friends before the evidence was in so he paid the penalty for his errors. Then came, the man whom I believe saved this country from itself, the great communicator, Ronald Reagan. I have remained a Republican most of my adult life and a true blue conservative, of which I am proud. I believe in capitalism and that charity is a gift, not a way of life. You should work your way off welfare and not let it be your sole means of support for a life time. These pretty well describe Daryle Lambert and I believe it might be too late to teach this old dog new tricks.
Now we can discuss, “The most hated man of this century, George Bush.” I happen to believe he was a fair President, not great, but he did keep us safe for his two terms in office even though he let Congress get spending out of control. (You do realize that Congress does the spending, don't you?) The country, however, was looking for change at any cost and Obama was elected because of this dislike for Bush, even though Bush wasn't running for office. Well, we got the change and now I sense that a lot of people don't agree with or like that change. Obama's popularity is sinking faster than the Titanic. I believe that George Bush is beginning to sound better to many people and it will be interesting to see if this trend continues.
If this is a trend then it is time to take notice of any George Bush memorabilia that you run across. I have noticed that items with his signature on them, that a few months ago you could have purchased for just a few bucks, are now bringing over $200 on eBay. Also special items might command a few thousand if you are fortunate enough to find them . It is early in this trend but keep your eyes open as the rebellion to Obama's plans increase. If he continues to attack the American public because they are exercising their free speech, this will come back to bite him. Another mistake that he is making now is calling out the unions and Acorn to police the town hall meetings for him. Shutting down free speech won't be tolerated long in this great country and the ballot box will show it if this continues. Obama is my president and I feel that he has the right to suggest polices but if the public rejects them it is time to move on.
All said and done these controversies will only help in the recovery of George Bush's reputation and any thing connected to him will increase in value.
