"Bush Worst President in History of U.S." « Fun With News Headlines »

How can anyone even consider a notion like this without breaking out in gales of laughter???

The link at Drudge Report doesn't link to the LA Times column. Look around the blogosphere, I'm sure other people will be less lazy than me and go find the actual thing.

But stop and I've asked many times, what did Bill Clinton actually do in two terms of office? Just about nothing. President Bush has already achieved successes that make the nation better and stronger in just three years. But that's just the most obvious recent example.

What about Jimmy Carter? Is there anyone who doesn't consider that Presidency an unmitigated disaster? His incompetent handling of nearly every issue set the nation back a decade or more. There are still things that haven't recovered from his mistakes.

What about Nixon and his lies? What about Herbert Hoover and the Depression? What about, Buchannon? I don't know much about him, but I hear he wasn't that great.

Um, let's see... U.S. Grant was generally considered to have the most corrupt administration ever. Anything you might dislike about President Bush for trumping up weak reasons to conduct a pre-emptive, hegemonic war (which I don't think Bush did) is doubly true for Theodore Roosevelt. Anything you might hate about President Bush for "allowing" 9/11 is true of FDR for "allowing" Pearl Harbor.

By what possible standard is President Bush the worst President ever? Facial expressions? Stymiing (how do you spell that, anyway? Is it even a word) every Democrats fondest socialist Utopian wish? What?

Dislike him, okay. Disapprove of his handling of specific situations, okay. Worst ever? Anyone saying that is probably insane.

It's pretty sad that this was written in late 2004 considering that by then we knew full well that Bush understood that Saddam had no WMD - thus we were dupped into entering the war - an egregious act of dishonesty easily on the same level as Grant.

I'll let your statement remain as an example of group-think idiocy.

Thank you.

I have lived during the presidencies of FDR until the present administration. On balance, I have to state that George Bush is arguably the worst. The damage to the nation's international standing, its moral credibility, the horrendous damage to the economy, the kind of dimwith thinking that led to the disaster in New Orleans and the wide-ranging cronyism of the last four years has been astounding. Did I mention one stolen election and another that was seriously tainted? There have been scoundrels during the years aforementioned, but the leader in incompetence, arrogance and total lack of vision is the present one. May God help us. I fear He is weeping for the nation that was once the vaunted "Shining city on the hill."
