Some legacy Junior has managed - and this after the country, as divided as they had felt, basically gave him a blank check and all their good will after 9/11. As reported at Pensito Review:
Most Americans agree that George Bush is the Worst President Ever, in the past 30 years, according to a new Gallup poll:To claim Reagan as the best is... well... about as bone-headed as possible. Americans truly love putting dolts on pedestals.
Americans think President George W. Bush will go down in history as the country’s worst leader of his era, according to a Gallup Poll released Wednesday.The poll rated Pres. Reagan as the best president among presidents Carter, himself, Bush I, Clinton and Bush II.
But Bush rates the worst, with 54 percent saying history will paint him as a poor or below-average president, according to the survey.
Reagan never has and never will deserve the level of hero worship bestowed on him. From his deliberate efforts to ignore AIDS until the contagion had killed and infected so many, to killing educational help for poorer Americans, to the ridiculous amounts of money he burned on Star Wars, to the wild financial excesses and running up the national debt to a level that was unheard of (at least until President Numbnuts Bush got in office) - Reagan deserves derision, not reverance.
