I will try and make it brief as possible since his election he has been vilified by the press because of their anger with gore losing the election(observe the press treatment of Sarah Palin)
The press is 90% democrat and liberal by a poll taken a few years ago. Here is a caveat that shows his hatred is press generated...in 2004 in the middle of the so call unpopular Iraqis war he won with 53% of the vote the highest voter win this century so the illusion that he is hated is media generated....how else would you explain this.
Here is what international organization says about Bush record if he was a democrat he would be the second coming.
PRESIDENT BUSH HAS A GOOD ECONOMIC RECORD
The evidence shows that much of the Democratic Party's criticism of President Bush's economic record is wide of the mark, says Keith Marsden, a fellow of the Centre for Policy Studies.
How does the performance of the U.S. economy really compare with other advanced economies over the eight years of George Bush's presidency? Data published by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the World Bank, the International Comparison Program (ICP) (a cooperative venture coordinated by the World Bank) and the U.S. Census Bureau allow a nonpartisan, factual assessment, says Marsden.
U.S. output has expanded faster than in most advanced economies since 2000.
The IMF reports that real U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) grew at an average annual rate of 2.2 percent over the period 2001-2008 (including its forecast for the current year).
President Bush will leave his successor an economy 19 percent larger than the one he inherited from President Clinton.
This U.S. expansion compares with 14 percent by France, 13 percent by Japan and just 8 percent by Italy and Germany over the same period.
The latest ICP findings, published by the World Bank in its World Development Indicators 2008, also show that GDP per capita in the United States reached $41,813 (in purchasing power parity dollars) in 2005; this was a third higher than the United Kingdom's, 37 percent above Germany's and 38 percent more than Japan's.
The ICP study found that the average per-capita consumption of the U.S. population (citizens and illegal immigrants combined) was second only to Luxembourg's, out of 146 countries covered in 2005.
The U.S. average was $32,045; this was well above the levels in the UK ($25,155), Canada ($23,526), France ($23,027) and Germany ($21,742). China stood at $1,751.

one little caveat Bush also fostered democracy and fight terrorism around the world without much help militarily or monetary from our allies

Because people blame him for what is going on in this nation, specifically the war. When actually he didn't decide to go to war, congress did, he asked them and the majority of them said we should go and do something about whats going on. And people have a common miss understanding, there were 2 reasons we went to Iraq, one for Alqueada and second it was morally correct. Alqueada were committing genocide in Iraq killing thousands and thousands of people for no apparent reason.
sorry if i miss spelled Alqueada.

For the exact reason seen in the answers you have received. There are none. Only hatred. People must start to see the difference between hatred, and politics. Debate is healthy.

You can not be that uninformed now can you.
The economic condition the country is in.
The loss of lives for a lie.
Do you really think that incompetency should be rewarded?

he has been the most liberal republican in office, ever.
the federal budget is out of control because the republicans failed to control costs.
it is the same reason that as bad as his ratings are, the ratings for the democratically controlled congress are even worse.
