    He is better than GW bush. In fact there are 43 presidents better than gw bush. It's sad that the worst president that the US has ever had and will have in the future was in my lifetime.

    Agreed. I've never understood trying to shoehorn a 21st century mindset into the 19th century.

    And even if the individual was ahead of their time, practical reality would have prevented them from doing much, if anything, anyway.

    You know, it used to be when you bought a politician, that son of a bitch stayed bought.

    Bush was bad, but Obama has given him a run for his money.
