The Bush Presidency Legacy Chart

Saw this over on The People's Republic of Seabrook (originally from Democratic Caucus which has data source attributions) and had to post it here because it provides a very, very clear picture of just how far we, as a nation, have fallen under Dubya's dubious leadership.
The standout data: more Americans in poverty, the cost of insurance has doubled to $12k per year, the shocking drop in views of the US around the world (12% for Turkey!), greater consumption of foreign oil, negative personal savings and almost twice consumer credit debt over 2001.
There's no way to avoid the fact that George W. Bush has been an abject failure as a president and has done almost immeasurable harm to our nation on every front. Whoever replaces him in the White House will have a steep hill to climb out of the pit Dubya dug for us.
