Bush: Number One Worst
Alert JMG reader Tater hipped me to this litany of Bush's failures from Pulizter nominated author Stephen Rizzo. Highlights: Deficit: doubled to over $8 trillion. War costs: almost $400 billion. Social programs: cut by $40 billion. Trade deficit: almost $1 trillion. Human rights: secret prisons, torture, wiretapping. Go read the entire list.
Worst president of the ten* in my lifetime? Easily and by far.
Worst president in the history of the country? I'm accepting challengers.
*Eisenhower, Johnson, Kennedy, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II.
