I have to laugh sometimes at the idiotic statements in the press. Rolling Stone opines that George Bush will go down as the worst president in American history. What? Have these fellas forgotten the one-term administration of the peanut farmer from Plains who gave us long lines at the gas pumps, put into place legislation that would be the root of today's financial catastrophe, and continues to be ridiculous as he travels around the globe playing self-proclaimed diplomat? I'm not a particular Bush fan, but I sure think he'll have plenty of rivals for the "worst" president in history title. But I'm not sure some of these folks have ever read a history book that covers anything before their own birthday. After all, what do a bunch of old white guys have to tell them about history? More fun to look at the past through their own view of the present. How many have ever read the constitution?
No, I don't think Bush will go down as the worst president in history. Let's revisit the question in ten years for a more sensible view.
