Another thing that Shrub did really wrong when he slunk into office was to cancel the "agreed framework" with North Korea, resulting in an escalation of their nuclear program. Now (via Kevin Drum):

"A deal to rein in North Korea's nuclear program would give President Bush a rare foreign-policy victory at a time when he is embroiled in a bitter debate over the war in Iraq and tensions with Iran. But the proposed deal also exposes the administration to accusations from both conservatives and Democrats that President Bush has essentially returned to a Clinton-era arrangement with North Korea -- known as the 1994 Agreed Framework -- that he disparaged and cast aside soon after he took office in 2001."

I was not much of a fan of Clinton while he was in office, but in hindsight he looks really good.

uncle scott,

I disagree with your last paragraph.

One of the reasons I was a fan of the Clinton, was because I felt then that government was (generally) working, so I personally didn't have to worry as much.

With Dumbya, I worry about it all the time.
