Experts agree: He's the worst

While wasting time at work today, I ran across the following random factoid: Historians Rate the Bush Presidency Worst, to which I add a hearty, "Well, duh."

Still, it's occasionally good to have your worst suspicions confirmed.

One of my favorite judgments:

    "Glib, contemptuous, ignorant, incurious, a dupe of anyone who humors his deluded belief in his heroic self, he has bankrupted the country with his disastrous war and his tax breaks for the rich, trampled on the Bill of Rights, appointed foxes in every henhouse, compounded the terrorist threat, turned a blind eye to torture and corruption and a looming ecological disaster, and squandered the rest of the world's goodwill. In short, no other president's faults have had so deleterious an effect on not only the country but the world at large."

Despite the eloquence of the above, nothing can match the succinct observation that
    He knows how to make the very rich very much richer, and he has an amazing talent for f**king up everything else he even approaches. His administration has been the most reckless, dangerous, irresponsible, mendacious, arrogant, self-righteous, incompetent, and deeply corrupt one in all of American history.

My God, I can say no more: I'm beginning to froth at the mouth.

Note: the History News Network, where this appeared, is part of George Mason University. I have, by God, added this to the list of universities to consider for my 17 year old's college education!
