11/18/2005: Well, I've Said This Before...
...So How could I resist this as a Statement for the Real Bush Legacy:
Just about says it ALL.
When this history is written, it IS Going to be the WORST PRESIDENT EVAH-AHHHHHH as the Child-In-Chief's Prime Legacy.
Unless of course ya run into Steven Colbert of The Colbert Report and have to answer his purposely absurd poll of CIC: "GREAT" or "GREATEST" President.
Hahahhahahahahahaha! Steven yer such a STITCH!!
[Hat tip to Michael Froomkin at Discourse.net
And one of the Discourse commentators who says:
"The reason that W is the worst is because he blends all of the characteristics that our worst presidents have had into one seamless mélange. This administration’s corruption and incompetence surpasses that of Warren G. Harding and U.S. Grant. This administration’s single-minded and thoroughgoing dedication to the interests of the plutocracy exceeds Reagan and Coolidge. This administration's grandiosity and aggrandizement goes beyond Jefferson. This administration's rejection of science, policy and arrant anti-intellectualism is greater than Andrew Jackson or Dwight Eisenhower. Finally, This administration's willingness to harass, punish and silence its critics has not analgoue in political history -- except maybe Nixon. At the same time, W’s misguided foreign policy transports him from the realm of mere clumsy ineffectuality in which presidents like Franklin Pierce, Andrew Johnson and Jimmy Carter live. I’m not entirely sure we have an analogue for W – not without reaching back into Rome for Nero…
Well stated!!! :-)]
