    One of the worst presidents ever. The problem is, there are about ten really bad presidents so he faces stiff competition. (I put Wilson first.)

    He might be worse than Nixon, let’s put it that way.

    In the tripartite libertarian analysis:

    1. foreign policy: bad
    2. domestic policy: bad
    3. civil liberties: bad

    Bush’s official portrait tells the story too, looks like he’s on the couch eating peanuts watching mindless football game mean while Rome burns and hero’s like hank have to wait until a blue light special to buy a gun.(even then he has to use layaway)

    Remember how we were pressured to give banks a blank check to prevent the apocalypse? More fail here:

    Where’d the bailout money go? Shhhh, it’s a secret

    AP study finds $1.6B went to bailed-out bank execs

    Actually, that would be in the key of F* Major.

    I HOPE the next administration is as successful at preventing another major terrorist attack.

    Given what happened on 9/11/2001, I sincerely hope the next administration is more successful in that regard. Or does “another major terrorist attack” provide a Cosmic Mulligan?

    Byron how soon you forget, that one was Clinton’s fault.

    I think that we can all agree that we will be safer if we reserve our hate for our enemies rather than our presidents.

    I haven’t seen anyone in this thread say they hated Bush, although that would be an interesting addition to the standard Gallup poll. Disapprove / strongly disapprove / hate | 70% / 45% / ????

    we are so much safer now because we have to take off our shoes at the airport, works for me!!

    Byron, count me as a hater.

    Give me a break on the platitudes of: “I think that we can all agree that we will be safer if we reserve our hate for our enemies rather than our presidents.” The issue is not about “hating” the President, just like no one “hates” JP Losman. It’s whether he’s bad at his job. And on that question – there is little doubt. I generally think we’re being much too polite – GWB is the worst President in modern American history. Economic meltdown, foreign policy disaster, total failure to lead government to perform basic functions in the time of crisis (i.e. Katrina).

    The only hope I have for the eight years of misery is that we have learned to never again apply the “Person with whom I’d most like to have a beer” test when we select our Presidents.
