    Voted 'yes' in comparison with our current 'president.'

    Historians Rate Bush near the bottom of failed presidents.

    GWB will forever be known as "The Herbert Hoover of the 21st Century". Sorry to burst your bubbles.

    Link to your quote please.

    I'll bet you were impressed by the Lovenstein Institute's ranking of Dubya's IW too.

See that is what happens when you have someone who wants to "talk tough" and "act tough" but doesn't think things through.

    The Unraveling: High Hopes and Missed Opportunities in Iraq” is entertaining because Sky is a wry and intelligent companion. It is sad for its account of how the Obama administration squandered what Sky views as the victory that the surge had snatched from the first catastrophic years of U.S. occupation. It is enlightening for how it helps us unlearn much of what we think we know — for example, that “ancient hatreds” rending the Shiite, Sunni and Kurds make Iraq a hopeless case.

    Prior to Katrina US doctrine was that the Feds acted in support of local and state authorities. In Louisiana and New Orleans those evaporated so there was no place for the Feds to plug in.

    I've always thought the criticism of Bush during Katrina was ginned up by a hostile media.

    It is too early to rank Clinton, G.W. or Obama... it takes a while. Also, most of the "worst" were before and after the single largest travesty ever to hit the nation... the Civil War.

    That said, Obama will easily be in the worst catagory in a couple of decades and I bet Bush will climb up as perspective takes a hold of people's emotions.
