How do you define " worst"? Assuming you mean overall " score" ? W Bush for sure. He has managed to drive the country
into the side of a mountain. Carter was equally dismal, he drove the country into a mountain too, just the other side of it. :roll:

After his mental capacity became more noticeable he was once again a actor with someone else writing the play.


Close 2nd to Dubya, sam. Now credited with the "de-industrialization of America." Presided over stupendous increases in the national debt by running against the "tax and spend" Democrats, then becoming a "spend and don't tax" Republican. In other words, he decimated the philosophy of fiscal responsibility which had been the cornerstone of the Goldwater conservative movement. Even his own VP, successor and Dubya's old man, Bush 41, called Reagan's "trickle-down" theory "voodoo economics."

He also abandoned the conservative "leave people alone in their private lives" philosophy of Goldwater and forged the Faustian alliance with the truly lunatic religious right. Worst thing the GOP ever did, because getting into people's bedrooms was completely incompatible with basic conservative/libertarian beliefs.

The only aspect of his Presidency which surpassed Dubya's was that he was too busy fighting the cold war with ray-guns and sh!t to start thinking he could invade the Mid-East and kick a$$ over there.

Will not happen, the founding fathers were all farmers of one kind or another. Besides, it not the true AG guys that are the
problem, it is the posers. 8-)

Carter started this whole mess. What were mortgage rates during his administration? His failed hostage rescue was a joke. GWB will be treated a lot better by historians just as Abe Lincoln. Lincoln was hated during his administration.

Feels like it. :D

In reality, my cousin has a diary from an ancestor where he says he was "proud" to have voted for Lincoln, twice.

All I can say is, good thing that guy is dead or I'd KILL him! ;) :D

Geronimo's remains........didn't he die in the prison in St. Augustine, Florida? Sad ending for a Great Man!
He wasn't the first Hero who said: "Don't trust the White Man"!!!!!!!

Lincoln....who knows. He sure P***ed off more than one fellow and paid a dear price. Could have been worth it to get away from his 'odd wife'.

Did your family have anything to do with Jimmy H's disappearance? That too, was a job very well done! We should query 'Devil' since he was a CIA 'operative', just what he knows about Vince Foster's strange day in the park. Was he on duty when Teddie and Mary Jo made the headlines. Heck, devil lives down near the cape doesn't he?

The descendants of Geronimo have sued Skull and Bones, a secret society at Yale University with ties to the Bush family, charging that its members robbed his grave in 1918 and have kept his skull in a glass case ever since.

JPete just cut the crap will ya. Jeeeze, President Lincoln sucked , Bush Sucked.....whatever, dude you SUCK, really you do ok. Let it go.
Have you ever made a Cognitive argument in your life? I sincerely doubt it.

Geronimo was an old school thug, a rapist and murderer. He should, and did rot in hell.

F%&K-You to everyone of you appeasing little dweebs that pine for him and his family.
