    Trump: Bush "Worst President Ever"

    Linky --> (http://newsblogs.chicagotribune.com/news_theswamp/2007/03/trump_bush_the_.html)

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

    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.

    Out of curiosity, is your list the same as pancakeman's?

    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.

    Kevin, I am fully aware of how the American political system functions. I am pointing out that he is not judging George Bush based on his policies, but because he believes that the president does not read 60 books a year, or that George must be lying when he says he does not watch himself on TV.
    If Donald was to say "I think George Bush is the worst president we have had because his _____ policy was ____", then I would take him seriously.

    This comment here is why I don't take him seriously. If he had said something to that effect, then what he says would mean something different and get a different response from people.

    Trump, and anyone else who thinks Bush is such a bad president that is ruining the nation, should just...move to another country.

    I wouldn't take anything Trump says seriously. The guy is a male version of Paris Hilton.

    Because he's really rich, and owns a hotel, and is blonde? Other than that, I don't see any similarities.

    Spoken like a true South Carolinian.

    Strom Thurmond, may he RIP, would have been so proud of you. :prop:

    I thought the American way would be, "Trump, and anyone else who thinks Bush is such a bad president that is ruining the nation should just not vote for him in the next election"?

    How about the fact that they're both famous just for being famous?

    No one is ever famous "just for being famous." In this case one is famous for being a daughter of a really rich guy and for having sex on the internet and partying a lot, while the other is famous for being a self-made billionaire, while also participating in a reality TV show.
