“Bush’s ultimate goal — already hawked by his former political adviser Karl Rove — is to become another Harry S. Truman, a regular-guy commander-in-chief whose stock rose sharply about 20 years after he left office.”

— Veteran far left journalist Jonathan Alter in Bloomberg.com, April 26, 2013. Alter was arguably BDS Patient Zero on election night in November of 2000.

As the above illustration highlights, unlike Truman, who was succeeded by Dwight Eisenhower, who had previously won World War II, Bush needn’t wait two decades for his stock to resume its ascension, if only in comparison to his pitiful successor.
