Question Of The Week, 1/7/07

Good morning. I'm still playing catch up. While I was going through my e-mail last night (I got the incoming box down below 100!) I'd almost be willing to bet I saw the names of a half dozen former presidents in articles that had been sent to me. That gave me an idea for this weeks Question Of The Week. Out of all of them that have served(?)in the last half century,in your opinion which one would be the worst United States President? You can tell us why you feel this way if you'd like.

I'll post my answer in the Comment Section Monday night.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Is this a trick question? :-)

I vote for the Adolescent in Chief, George W. Bush.

I've lived through all presidencies since Truman's (tho I don't remember him), and the contest isn't even close.

Right. I used to think Ronald Reagan was an embarrassment, with his nonsensical statements and silly rhetoric. But I saw a replay of an old Larry King interview with Reagan last year, and I thought, compared to our current President, Reagan sounds like an intellectual!

Lyndon B. Johnson:

Failed economic programs that created many problems for America even to this day.

Vietnam War

Worst President of the century was FDR, in my opinion.

Indeed. LBJ could not have done so much damage were it not for the groundwork done by FDR and even Woodrow Wilson.

David,
Sorry to read of your recent health problems. My back issues are not arthritis related, but I'm on heavy-duty meds to control the pain and the funny sensations in my foot. Not fun!

Worst President? Jimmy Carter, IMO. We're still reaping his legacy in the Middle East.

Without hesitation, Smilin' Jack Kennedy, a truly bizarre neoFascist. Among a wide range of activities, he gave diplomatic recognition to the Ba'athist Party in Iraq after a murderous coup which paved the way for the rise of the late Saddam Hussein.

From Vietnam to Central America to Africa, many threads lead back to Smilin' Jack and his brother, Little Bobby.

However, Jimmy Earl Carter and the increasingly astonishing George W. Bush have shown themselves to be true contenders of late. Do not be deceived by Mr. Carter. He's a thuggish hypocrite. And Bush? Beyond words or comprehension...

Clearly the current president, George W. Bush.

Need I really explain?

I'm amused by some of the comments:

FDR? He created that disaster called Social Security! I'm sure Mr. Porter will no doubt return his checks when he receives them.

Jimmy Carter? How dare he create peace between Israel and Egypt? Why have peace when you can have more wars? We all love wars!

First I want to thank all of you for stopping by to answer this weeks question. I didn't figure we'd all agree on this one.I can't say that I've liked any of our past presidents while they were in office. In some cases I've liked/approved of them after they left office.Bill Clinton is not one of the past presidents that I started liking after he left office. His sex scandals have nothing to do with me feeling he was the worst president we had in the last 50 years. The sex scandals he created to cover up what was going on. There have been a countless number of articles written about the Clinton/Gore campaign fundraisers. I couldn't find the one I was looking for but I did find some interesting reading. Treasonous Tradeoff (http://www.thenewamerican.com/tna/1998/vo14no14/vo14no14_tradeoff.htm) Building the Red Dragon (http://www.thenewamerican.com/tna/1998/vo14no16/vo14no16_dragon.htm) A Devastating Indictment (http://www.thenewamerican.com/tna/1998/vo14no26/vo14no26_rat.htm) Red Star Over The White House (http://www.thenewamerican.com/tna/1999/02-15-99/rstar.htm) If trading your countrys nuclear/military technology (security)for a few years of fame wouldn't earn you the title of worst president in 50 years I don't know what would.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Social security was a bad idea when they came up with it. I am only 18 so I doubt that I will ever receive any check.
