George W. Bush, Most Underrated Leader in Recent History

This, it seems, from a European, and a Muslim European to boot.

Whatever happened to leadership and honesty as presidential traits? I happen to believe that the only leader in the West to have these two admirable qualities in droves is the leader of the free world: George W Bush.

...

And when things did go wrong in Iraq, and there were calls to pull out, Mr Bush just followed his own counsel and doubled his bet with the Surge.

And he was right because Iraq is in a relatively better shape today than it ever was and Al Qa'eda is a shadow of its former self in that country.

This is a man who has the courage of his convictions.

Letís not forget how Europe does wars.

Usually we wait and wait until the enemy starts attacking, then we let them win a bit, then we fight until we are tired, then we just call the US to come over to clean our mess.

That is what happened in WWI, WWII, and the Balkans.

Bush is just showing us what a bunch of dangerous ditherers we are and we hate him for it. Naturally.

It's only been lately, faced with the upcoming election, that I've gotten over my dissatisfaction with Bush and realized, Wow, though he got a lot wrong, what a resolute leader, and wow, he did manage to get most of the big things not just right but courageously right.

Thanks to Conservative Belle.

The Anchoress, by the way, has been making this point for some time.
