Default Worst President Ever

I didn't write this but I thought it makes a good point.

Check this out....

Some claim President Bush shouldn't have started this war.

They complain about his prosecution of it.

One person recently claimed Bush was the worst president in U.S.
history.


Let's clear up one point:

We didn't start the war on terror

Try to remember it was started by terrorists on 9/11.

Let's look at the "worst" president and mismanagement claims;

FDR led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us: Japan did.

From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an average of 112,500 per year.

Truman finished that war and started one in Korea.

North Korea never attacked us.

From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of 18,333 per year.

John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962.

Vietnam never attacked us.

Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire. From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives
were lost, an average of 5,800 per year.

Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent.

Bosnia never attacked us.

He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three times by Sudan and
did nothing.

Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.

In the two years since terrorists attacked us, President Bush has
liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put nuclear
inspectors in Lybia,Iran and North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a
terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.

We lost 600 soldiers, an average of 300 a year.

Bush did all this abroad while not allowing another terrorist attack at
home.


Worst president in history? Come on!

Come on now...that is OBVIOUSLY an opinion. Although I agree Bush isn't doing the best job as president, I don't think it proves any point to forbid other's opinion's.

I wasn't commenting on your opinion. I was commenting on your ban of other's opinions.

Does that mean you're three years old

Cause I would say that William Jefferson Clinton and James Carter would be 1 and 1A on that list.

It's all a matter of perspective.

They are near the top of my list, too. But the list they are near the top of is a totally different list!

Bush, hes a joke president, just like his Dad.
JFK was going to be the best one, but he got wiped out.

I was just about to mention smiling Jimmy, but thought I would keep my opinions to myself after reading above. But I will offer one point, let's support our leader and let history take care of the opinions.

Our President:

"I graduated from Yale University with a low C average. I was a cheerleader."

His record speaks the truth - he is the worst president.
