Historians: Bush Worst President Ever

An informal survey of historians suggests George W. Bush will be remembered as the worst president in U.S. history.

  • 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.

Right before the last election, my sister implied she was still undecided with her vote. After a few moments of stammered dumbfoundedness, I said, almost verbatim, "I believe George W. Bush will be remembered by historians as the Worst President Ever once his presidency is over."

I'm glad to see I was wrong, and it didn't take that long.
