When I said that "Bush is the worst fucking President ever!!", I thought I was just talking out of my Liberal ass...


When you think about Abu Graibe, the administration leaking an operatives name for political purposes, their response to Hurricane Katrina, them doctoring evidence for their case to war, the economy, the skyrocketing debt, and a shitload of other examples of proven incompetence, don't you chuckle when the right's argument against John Kerry was that he "looked french"? When you look at his low approval numbers, remember when people had those silly polls proving how Bush was the man "You'd rather have a beer with"??(I wonder if all those Hurricane Katrina victims feel like grabbing a cold one with our draftdodger-in-chief?) Remember how Bush(the draft dodger) and Cheney(the douche with 5 deferments) fooled all of you who voted for them that you wouldn't be safe under John Kerry?(Experts claim that we are even less safe than we were pre-911) Listen, John Kerry ran a terrible campaign and seemed like the fucking tin-man, but when you feel that a baboon could have run this country better than Bush, it suddenly makes Kerry look like an attractive alternative.(No disrespect to John Kerry or Baboons)

This is from a Rolling Stone article I saw a couple of days ago:

George W. Bush's presidency appears headed for colossal historical disgrace. Barring a cataclysmic event on the order of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, after which the public might rally around the White House once again, there seems to be little the administration can do to avoid being ranked on the lowest tier of U.S. presidents. And that may be the best-case scenario. Many historians are now wondering whether Bush, in fact, will be remembered as the very worst president in all of American history.


Jesus.. Wait, theres more.

Even worse for the president, the general public, having once given Bush the highest approval ratings ever recorded, now appears to be coming around to the dismal view held by most historians. To be sure, the president retains a considerable base of supporters who believe in and adore him, and who reject all criticism with a mixture of disbelief and fierce contempt -- about one-third of the electorate. (When the columnist Richard Reeves publicized the historians' poll last year and suggested it might have merit, he drew thousands of abusive replies that called him an idiot and that praised Bush as, in one writer's words, "a Christian who actually acts on his deeply held beliefs.") Yet the ranks of the true believers have thinned dramatically. A majority of voters in forty-three states now disapprove of Bush's handling of his job. Since the commencement of reliable polling in the 1940s, only one twice-elected president has seen his ratings fall as low as Bush's in his second term: Richard Nixon, during the months preceding his resignation in 1974. No two-term president since polling began has fallen from such a height of popularity as Bush's (in the neighborhood of ninety percent, during the patriotic upswell following the 2001 attacks) to such a low (now in the midthirties). No president, including Harry Truman (whose ratings sometimes dipped below Nixonian levels), has experienced such a virtually unrelieved decline as Bush has since his high point. Apart from sharp but temporary upticks that followed the commencement of the Iraq war and the capture of Saddam Hussein, and a recovery during the weeks just before and after his re-election, the Bush trend has been a profile in fairly steady disillusionment.


I wonder where all of those "..but Bush is a strong leader!" people are now??

to be honest, i think history will write it differently.. two examples:

Woodrow Wilson, one of the most racist and non democratic president ever, is written and considered to be one of the best presidents ever.

Richard Nixon, when he passed away, he was given the fullest honors for any dignitary. Just ONE generation went by and they had all these wonderful tributes to him.

oh, one more example, Ronald Reagan. who was crazy but considered one of the best.

i am a historian and bush is up there with the worst but mofo's aren't going to write that down

thank god for Howard Zinn

I fully expect President Bush to make a bad situation WORSE in the middle east soon. Probably a tactical nuclear strike against Iranian military facilities. All in the name of "fighting terrorism." And, he can GET AWAY WITH IT, because he is the commander-in-chief. Is this a way to "accidentally" start World War III? May God protect humanity becuase no one else will.

They deserve everything that they get for voting for dude.

While "w" was a Gov, I looked up the stats of Texas. Under his reign, Texas was the third or fourth lowest in Education, Minorities in power, and a whole bunch of other stuff I forget.

There were signs that showed us from the beginning that he was going to be very freakin' inadequate.

I predicted the "War on Terra" before he took office.

I knew Black people would be in for it. Katrina.

How could he possibly have been against broken borders when he lives in Texas?

The American people who said he was a strong leader deserve everything they got. Where are they now? Being outsourced, In the unemployment line, or at the pawn shop trying to get that gas money.

reading is fundamental!
