“No individual president can compare to the second Bush,” wrote one. “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.”Unbelievable, I know. Can you believe a whole 1.8 percent of historians actually think Bush is a success? Jeez.

Don't take it from me, take it from 109 professional historians. A mere 98.2 percent of historians surveyed called Bush's presidency a failure. More than 61 percent of those surveyed rated Bush the worst president in history, and an additional 35 percent put him in the bottom third of presidents.
