    Bush has also started the greatest invasion since WWII. Look where we are now.

    Choices are kind of limited, (especially on the Whig end with just Taylor and Fillmore) aint they?

    For what its worth in terms of the actual thread topic.

    Democrat: Carter
    Republican: Harding
    RIP Jacob Schlottke - 1984-2011

    Worst Democrat: James Buchanan - No contest here... His actions (or lack of them helped to bring about the American Civil War)

    Worst Republican: G.W. Bush - Again not even a close call with any other Republican.
    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.

    History will not remember GW as bad as he is being painted here. There are SEVERAL worse Repub presidents in history.

    Well you COULD say Nixon, because he had to resign. At the time, most democrats thought him to be the worst President in history. But as time has passed History has balanced his bad with his foreign policy brilliance.

    If judged from merely this point of time, I might tend to agree with you that W would be included in the worst of the GOP, but we cant really judge him untill we find just how this thing in Iraq (and Afghanistan) settle out. If democracy (or something close to it) takes hold there and I believe its a distinct possibility, then history will be much kinder than his critics of today.

    My worst GOP Prez? I'd have to say Harding too. Truely one of the biggest crooks to ever occupy the White House.

    My worst Dem Prez?: Well Andrew Johnson was a drunk, and Lyndon Johnson's Great Society was a colossal failure, and the Clinton's totally disgraced (and looted) the place, but I'd have to say Jimmy Carter was the worst.

    I do agree with this statement. History has yet to really judge Bush because it is too soon. But as it stands right now he is my worst GOP pres in recent times (past 100 years + or - a few)

    Now if everything goes good he could move up the list.
