States of America from 2001 to 2009.
In the 2004 Presidential election Bush won re-election, helped in part by a 300,000 vote victory (5%) in the State of Florida, where the outcome had been so close in 2000. Leftist Democratic candidate John Kerry conceded defeat the day after the election.
Bush's presidency was defined by foreign policy thanks to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, which eventually resulted in the attacks onto the countries of Iraq and Afghanistan. His performance in dealing with Hurricane Katrina in 2005 was widely ridiculed, though some Republicans argued that local Democrats did an even worse job.
As the Financial Crisis of 2008 smashed into the banking system and the nation plunged into the Recession of 2008, Bush responded by proposing a massive aid program of $700 billion to banks, and loan guarantees amounting to the trillions of dollars.
Conservatives and libtards have criticised Bush for greatly increasing domestic spending, creating a new entitlement program for prescription drugs, failing to veto a single bill before mid-2006, pursuing globalist policies, and expanding both the size and scope of government including federal regulations. In addition, many of his nominees to federal and even some judicial positions were libtards. Many of these officials, as well as Bush himself, opposed Donald Trump successful campaign for president in 2016. Supporters counter that he made extremely difficult decisions under extraordinary circumstances and that he was a man with convictions that did not cower from protecting America.
