Like most conservatives, I've been disappointed in certain aspects of George W. Bush's presidency. The thing that continues to amaze me is that so many people on the Left routinely denounce Bush and refer to him as the worst president in the history of the nation. (No, you sure don't have to click on all those links. Although some of these folks would probably appreciate the traffic.)
Given that in my lifetime we've had people like Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton occupy the Oval Office, it seems simply inconceivable to me that anyone could view Bush as worse than all of these guys. But apparently some people do.
So I'm throwing the following questions out to the Mr. Dilettante audience:
1) Is Bush the worst president in American history? If so, why?
2) If he isn't, who is worse?
3) What do you view as Bush's greatest accomplishment?
4) What do you view as Bush's greatest failing?
5) 50 years on, how will Bush be viewed? Will he still rank low, or will his reputation rise like this guy?
The floor is open. And I will answer my own questions in a subsequent post.
