Is George W. Bush The Worst President Evar?

So, Bush, as expected, tells the Dems where to shove their plans for early withdrawal, and clapped back by authorizing the deployment of 30,000 more troops. Despite the Dems having a choke hold on both the House and Senate, reality is, as long as there's a moron in the White House, you're gonna get vetoed.

Bush's total and complete unwillingness to budge, while still spouting the same "connection to 9/11" rhetoric has me wondering: is this dude the worst President evar?

Consider the facts.

A record budget deficit. An unjustified war that will never end. A crumbling housing market. More children left behind. Administration scandals. A nation more divided than ever before.

Wow, I'll note, it's not like I've got lots of prior experience with evaluating Commanders in Chief. I'm just in my 3rd decade, so I missed the whole Ford/Agnew/whatever period. I vaguely recall Jimmy Carter (disrespected). I grew up with Reagan (oppressive). I tolerated Bush Sr. (forgettable and thankfully brief). I matured with Clinton (overrated and rife with controversy). "W" is honestly the first President that I've followed as an adult, and by comparison, the other guys look like Hall of Famers. Bush is the proverbial Tyronn Lue.

Thankfully, this reign, if that's what you wanna call it, will end soon. Only time will tell if this means 4-8 years of Hilary (a tyrant in training), Barry (perhaps in over his head), Edwards (ditto), McCain (more war), Rudy (see Hilary), or Mitt (seriously, who the hell names a child "Mitt"?).

Either way, it can't possibly be any worse than the past 7 years. No way, no how.

Then again, Tony Blair just stepped down, maybe his buddy Stateside will follow suit.

Or maybe not.
