Worst President Ever?
I get incredibly happy when I see a mainstream news outlets like Yahoo with a story entitled "IS GEORGE BUSH THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER?" among its 'most popular'.

The story cites a survey of historians. Over a thousand were contacted, 415 responded. "Maybe they were all crazed liberals" indeed.

But the results are significant:
338 said Bush was failing
77 said he was succeeding

And 50 said Bush would be remembered as the worst president ever. Even worse than James Buchanan, who led the country into Civil War.

Some of the Bush record, from the article:

  • He has taken the country into an unwinnable war and alienated friend and foe alike in the process
  • He is bankrupting the country with a combination of aggressive military spending and reduced taxation of the rich
  • He has deliberately and dangerously attacked separation of church and state
  • He has repeatedly "misled," to use a kind word, the American people on affairs domestic and foreign
  • He has proved to be incompetent in affairs domestic (New Orleans) and foreign (Iraq and the battle against al-Qaida)
  • He has sacrificed American employment (including the toleration of pension and benefit elimination) to increase overall productivity
  • He is ignorantly hostile to science and technological progress
  • He has tolerated or ignored one of the republic's oldest problems, corporate cheating in supplying the military in wartime.
