Helen Thomas and so many others were right…and so many Americans shot themselves in the head and made the rest of the world roll their eyes in wonderment. Bush Jr., incurious George was by far the worst. And Ronald Reagan, the king of the deficits was not much farther behind. That’s in my poll. And Jimmy Carter’s as well. Some Americans still want him on Mount Rushmore. Go figure.
George W really was the worst modern president, say 238 presidential scholars. The Siena Research Institute says Bush was the worst president since Warren Harding in 1923, and one of the fifth worst ever based on factors like intelligence, communication, foreign policy and economic matters.
