I would like to take a moment to thank President Bush for the great service he has rendered me personally. I have been a fan of Ulysses S. Grant for much of my life. I have always admired Grant for his perseverence during devestating personal set backs as well as his sense of personal honor — honor in the sense of needing to uphold his good name through good acts. Sadly this sense of honor lead to his greatest downfall. He believed that others were as straighforward and honorable as he was. As a result he presided over one of the most corrupt administrations in US history. It is well-documented that he himself was not corrupt and was one of the few in his administration who didn’t personally profit. As a result his administration was long considered one of, if not the worst in US history.
The debate is now over! Mr. Bush has set a — hopefully — all-time record for incompetence and idiocy by a US president. If the soon-to-be ex-president has not redeemed Gen. Grant, he has certainly given historians a better sense of perspective on what being a bad president truly involves.
BTW, while it IS true that President Bush spent his final few hours in office calling other world leaders, I do not believe the rumor that they all said, “Lose my number.”
don’t you think it would be nearly impossible for any future president to surpass bush as the stupidest president in u.s. history!! I bet he holds that title til the end of time…but perhaps I’m just a cock-eyed optimist.
Interesting as always. Though I might give the nod to Harding.
I never underestimate stupidity. Ever.
I also heard a vote for Buchanan.
“Hope over fear,” said Obama. “Positive action over hope,” I say. But … here’s hoping. Good luck with your new President. All the best.
All the best?!?! All the best?!?! Look buddy, we’re Americans and we’ve gone to war for less than that, so watch your step and don’t go wishing us all the best again. Got that?
Hay … we Brits bailed you out of WWII!
It was the least you could do after WE LET YOU burn down our capitol in 1812.
