Bush - Worst President Ever

I've known this for years. But don't take my word for it, take the words of Al Neuharth, the founder of USA Today:

Our great country has had 43 presidents. Many very good. A few pretty bad. On Presidents Day next Monday, it's appropriate to commemorate them all.

I remember every president since Herbert Hoover, when I was a grade school kid. He was one of the worst. I've personally met every president since Dwight Eisenhower. He was one of the best.

A year ago I criticized Hillary Clinton for saying "this (Bush) administration will go down in history as one of the worst."

"She's wrong," I wrote. Then I rated these five presidents, in this order, as the worst: Andrew Jackson, James Buchanan, Ulysses Grant, Hoover and Richard Nixon. "It's very unlikely Bush can crack that list," I added.

I was wrong. This is my mea culpa. Not only has Bush cracked that list, but he is planted firmly at the top.

It's easier to forgive someone for being wrong, than for being right. You as a Calvinist should know that. And never forget we are all saved by faith, not by works, lest any man could boast.

I'm confused by your message. Can you clarify what you're trying to say?
