Former President George W. Bush has been back in the public eye this past week after delivering a speech that, without naming names, seemed to target the current administration's emboldening of bigotry and nativism, among other things.
Though it's easy to look good compared to *ahem* some people, let's not forget that Bush's approval rating was 22% before he left office. In a poll around that time, Americans were asked whether they thought Bush would be remembered as America's worst President. Half the respondents said no, 41% said yes, and 9% were unsure.
Yes he is. Don't let Trump distract you from how evil he was.— George Houssos (@HoussosG) October 23, 2017
George Bush killed over a million innocents in Iraq, brought back torture, increased gov spying on citizens, helped create ISIS, etc.— BOOshevik 🌈🎃☠️☭ (@onlinereverend) October 23, 2017

I thought Bush's 8 years were a nightmare; now we're having a compressed version of those 8 years every day...— Sebastian (@sebulia1) October 23, 2017
Still up for debate, for while Trump has certainly sullied the office his policy failures have been limited to accomplishing very little.— Mark Gresch (@TheHammer9001) October 23, 2017
