Because the Religious Right was manipulated into supporting him.
I am an atheist, certainly never was with the religious right. I did vote for Bush twice. I was disappointed in his actions right off the bat, but the alternatives, weren't any better.
The 2006 midterms assured that Bush43 could do no further damage, that would not also be done by a Democratic successor. His final strokes in fall of 2008 ended up being duplicated by his successor.
I can look back and I'm not pleased with Bush43, or his attempts to get amnesty passed then, but the alternatives of Gore or Kerry are disturbing.
