He's The Best President We've Ever Had
He Was One Of The Best
He Was Pretty Good
He Was Kind Of Bad
He Was One Of The Worst
He Was The Worst
I could not rank Bush Jr. as the worst president but, one of the worst, yes. Of course, Bush Jr. had a high bar to clear when you follow the path of minimal government and maximum individual liberty. I will type a small list of why he should join the league of bad presidents; Iraq War, anti-liberty Acts, and secrecy beyond secrecy, etc.
'The whole universe is going to die!'
Below average, far from the worst, not near the best.
Good picks on judges, the tax cuts were good, Patriot Act largely good, reinvesting in human intelligence good.
TSA/DHS was a bad move, as was perscription drug, as was a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, the handling of Iraq poor.
Katrina in between as it wasn't all his, Afghanistan and Iraq both had good and bad points, creating another "War on ....." whatever was not the right way to go about it imho.
Something like a D+, maybe C-
You down with TPP?
Bush Baa-aa-aa-aadd. Four legs gooood, two legs baa-aa-aadd.
Continued promotion of the invasion of the United States by Mexico.
Continued refusal to expand domestic oil exploration and exploitation.
New entitlement plans.
Failure to eliminate any government spending.
Going into Iraq, then bumbling it. (Democrats helped that enormously)
His general overall liberalness makes him a bad president, as all liberal presidents were bad to a large degree.
He's not Wilson, who still reigns as Worst Ever.
Veni. Vidi. Vici.

We could just as easily 'prove' that Clinton was a miserable president by offering up a similar list... Bin Laden, the 1993 WTC bombing, Monica Lewinsky, perjury, impeachment, Oklahoma City, the Waco Massacre, Elian Gonzalez, the Rwanda massacre, Monica Lewinsky, "I did not have sex with that woman!", Mogadishu, the O.J. verdict, the blue dress...
