The New American President
How will you remember Bush?
On 20th January 2009, George W. Bush will be handing over the reigns of the US presidency for the first time in eight years to Barack Obama. As it stands, George Bush has proven responsible for over 1,000 deaths of national troops in foreign lands, and has seen his country slide into one of the worst economic downturns in many a year. But how will the world remember him? Will it be his ‘Bushisms’, which have made it to posters on teenagers’ walls across the world? Will it be for the War in Iraq, or the economic downturn of 2008? Or will it be something else?
How will you remember him.
As George Bush goes out, in comes Barack Obama, a youthful president vowing to clean up some of the mess left by the Bush administration. He plans to push for new bills in the Senate to help the country in it’s current economic downturn, and also plans to change the way the US is involved in Iraq, amongst other things. What do you expect of him in the four years to come, however? Are you a US national, wanting help at home? Or are you an observer from across one of the many oceans, wondering how, if at all, the anticipated change in foreign policy will affect you?
