Thomas Friedman gives it to the GOP here in this op-ed. He, like many of us on the Left, are tired of this run around that W has given us. He's been so obsessed with things like outragious Social Security reform that doesn't fix anything and forced democracy in Iraq, that he's ignored much of everything else.
There's little doubt in my mind that we'll look back on the eight years of W and say, 'wow, what a disaster'. Nothing got done, this country took a step backwards, and didn't fix any future problems. His greatest domestic policies, tax cuts and No Child Left Behind, haven't solved much of anything besides giving more money to the rich and teaching kids how to take standarized tests (in other words, limited reading, writing, and math skills; and ignoring intellectual thought and science). Well anyway, read Friedman, he's nails it here.
