So I’m procrastinating a paper revision when I stumble across this page of “Bush by the Numbers”. It breaks down the Bush presidency by looking at several key (and several esoteric) indicators. The research was done by ProPublica, “an independent, non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest.” It looks like a pretty cool website, and I’ll check it out when I have some more free time.
Most of the statistics are pretty depressing; unemployment, the uninsured, and the national debt all increased. Some of the more obscure numbers are indicative of all the minor ways in which Bush has handicapped our institutions.
