Was Jimmy Carter The Worst President Ever?
An excerpt of Where They Stand:The American Presidents in the Eyes of Voters and Historians by Robert W. Merry inSalon suggests George W. Bush will be ranked near the bottom of all presidents.
“Based on the contemporaneous voter assessments, the objective record, and what we know of history, it’s difficult to see him even in middle-ground territory. History likely will view Bush largely as the voters did after eight years of his stewardship. And so it’s probably just as well that he doesn’t care much about the verdict of history.”
