    Trump: Bush "Worst President Ever"

    Linky --> (http://newsblogs.chicagotribune.com/...bush_the_.html)

    Click the hyperlink of the transcript, gives a .pdf of the whole thing.

    TRUMP: Look, everything in Washington has been a lie: weapons of
    mass destruction -- that was a total lie. It was a way of attacking
    Iraq, which he thought was going to be easy and it turned out to be the
    exact opposite of easy. He reads 60 books a year, he reads a book a
    week -- that's -- do you think that's -- do you think the president
    reads a book a week? I don't think so. He doesn't watch television.
    Now, one thing I know is that, when I'm on television, I watch, or I
    try. Because you do -- your own ego says, you know, Let's watch, let's
    see, whether it's good or bad, you want to watch, right? He doesn't
    watch television. So he's on television, being interviewed by you or
    somebody else, he doesn't watch. Does anybody really believe that?
    Now they're doing this whole scandal with the U.S. attorneys. Now
    they're finding e-mails, and it's proven to be a lie. Everything's a
    lie. It's all a big lie.
    Is Trump aware of what he is saying? Many people may not like Bush, but to call him the worst president we have ever had is just ignorance.
    What about James Buchanan? He sat idly by while the South prepared to wage civil war.
    What about Warren Harding? He made a mockery of the office, with his poker parties with friends, his scandals, his entire presidency.
    If these names were presented to The Donald, would he even know who they were?

    I don't think the Donald, a crappy businessman, is qualified to criticize the most demanding political position in the country, possibly the world. And on what basis? That he doesn't read books like he says? That he doesn't watch every appearance on TV like the narcissitic egotist that Trump is?

    Thoughts?

    Do I care about a) what he said or b) the fact that he said it?

    Answer: Neither.

    Besides, there have been at least two presidents who were worse than him. Maybe three.

    Wild, don't take that as my list. I have many more on it, and most are worse than George. I just thought of two of the worst we've had, and put them down.

    I was just being goofy more than anything. While I can list the presidents in order, I definitely don't know enough about each president's policies, decisions, actions, and terms in general to fairly determine which was worse/better than another.

    I really do think that it's hard to get a good handle on a president's "goodness" without having lived during his term. Historical persepctives are often incomplete.

    Ok, your non-exhaustive, off-the-top-of-your head, quick-list then? :smiley:

    Fair enough. Though not enlightening yours truly of the institution that is the group of American presidents of past, it was an enlighted comment in itself.

    So, Donald isn't qualified to judge the president? Because he is a crappy businessman? And that being in your opinion. Basis... How about the right to vote? How about being an American citizen? Do you forget who put Mr. Bush into office? Any person, who can vote, has the right to judge the president. Even you. So Donny can say Bush is the worst Prez in history, that's his opinion. But don't say he isn't qualified to judge, anybody who voted, is qualified to judge.
