Historians rank Bush in the top 10 of America’s worst presidents.

Today, C-SPAN released its second Historians Survey of Presidential Leadership, in which “65 presidential historians ranked the 42 former occupants of the White House on ten attributes of leadership.” Coming in first was Abraham Lincoln, followed by George Washington, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, and Harry Truman. Finishing last was James Buchanan. George W. Bush came in 36th, just beating out Millard Fillmore, who ranked 37th. A look at how historians judged Bush on measures such as his “economic management” and “moral authority”:

America was strong when they took office. Now her very survival is questionable. That makes it the worst.....ever.

I now rank these historians among my least trusted cabals. We had one great president, Jefferson. Their listing closely resembles a list of Presidents with the bloodiest hands.

Truman dropped two atomic bombs, within five days, on a country that was trying to surrender to someone who preferred to nuke them. He was average at best.

Jeffersons place on Mt Rushmore was hardly questioned. In recent history, all we hear of is that he had sex with an employee after his wife died. Shudder. I believe that many Americans would make sex illegal if they could. Punishable by a proper burning at the stake I would think.
