Yes, he did

Andrew Sullivan:

When one contemplates what president Bush has bequeathed - from $2 trillion deficits as far as the eye can see to a war without end in the Middle East to an intelligence capacity poisoned by torture - the jaw still drops. Did he really do this much damage to America and the world? Yes, he did.

The challenge now, at least for a person like me, is to find a language sufficient to talk about it, and to describe the ways in which this was not and is not inevitable.
