Chapter . Bush’s Legacy
It was a lame duck year for President George W. Bush. But while George W.

But his eight years of stubborn, short-sighted policies will have lasting effects for the American people and the next administration for an even longer time to come. Plus cartoonists who’d perfected Bush’s beady eyes and fleshy ears had to fit in their last cowboy caricatures before W. left office.
