This paper gives an in-depth analysis of George W. Bush's presidency, concluding that it was a failure and citing Bush's religious beliefs as the cause. According to the paper, during the period of George W. Bush's rule, the United States was driven into a series of bloody international conflicts, was plunged into a desperate economic recession produced by an epidemic of corrupt abuses and generally fell under the pale of social programs and legal ideologies both founded on explicitly pronounced tenets of Christianity. The paper then explicitly describes why this Christian ideology was the reason for the many problems faced by Bush's during his tenure as president. The paper concludes by stating that some of Bush's faith-based initiative were clearly unconstitutional.

From the Paper:

"It is thus that we are encouraged to consider the political implications of such a policy initiative. Indeed, at the time of Bush's bid for reelection, many of his prospects were rather grim. Indeed, as an incumbent, he was facing an extremely close race with Senator Kerry. Much of this was based on his terrible record to that juncture in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, his very poor handling of an economy increasingly in dire straits and, in the wake of congressional hearings both on the handling of 9/11 and the lead up to Iraq revealing the administration to have willfully botched intelligence findings. Bush entered his reelection bid with greater negatives and approval ratings challenges than any incumbent in history who has proceeded to victory."
