    The plurality of voting members chose George W. Bush as the worst president in American history and why not? His administration was a catastrophe for this country. 9-11. Iraq. Katrina. The 2008 recession. To name just a few.

    Imposing arbitrary standards on when someone can legitimately vote for Bush as the worst president is bogus. Doctor cure thyself.

    the ignorance of many people is a given. Calling Bush the worst president ever is the sign of profound ignorance

    The 'war' against Afghanistan and Iraq were over in 2003. I know you are too busy dabbing at the drool to recognize that...but...true story. See...we are actually allied with the Iraqi and Afgahni government now. I now thats hard for you to accept, but its true. The 'war' wasnt the problem. Where Bush did a lousy job was after the war ended.
    And throughout the history of the world, Europe has never been so stable as since there was permanent American presence.

    You are obviously not familiar with Wilson and FDR. More importantly, Wilson, who got us into two of the deadliest wars ever.

    Perhaps, then, a better poll question would have been something along these lines:

    Who, out of the first 35-40 presidents, was the worst, as defined by a (as much as possible) academic examination of the facts involved?

    This would exclude the past...20ish years, and demand knowledge (which, I admit, I have little of in this area) of the parties involved.

    Because yes, if you simply ask "worst president?", some persons are going to vote for the more recent one, as his/her actions are fresh to mind, and they can't be bothered to take the time to consider all the 42 other presidents.

    One or more people spammed the "Obama" option, if my understanding of the situation is accurate.

    I briefly considered spamming the "Other" option, after it was blatantly obvious the poll had been spammed already, just to mess with people.

    But I'm too lazy.

    I guess I'm naive, since I believe Obama is a piece of **** and probably got all those votes.

    FDR's evil permeates American society-and more importantly-American Jurisprudence-to this day. No new deal and no lapdog judges, and we wouldn't have a huge bureaucracy and a massive debt
