Why do you think poor old H.W. is the worst? I'm not going to criticize or post a response to your critique, I just want to know.


Unless you say something so blasphemous that it would be my obligation as an American to interject lol.

I don't like his handling on economics, I am always angered by the "Read my lips promise" and I think he could have prevented the gulf war. He also spawned the likes of Bush Jr. and Jeb Bush

None taken. If I were to be offended when somebody made a sarcastic remark then I'm afraid I'd be a hypocrite.

Another vote that I find interesting is the vote for Madison. I am in no way criticizing whoever voted for him, however, I would like to know why you voted for him

How so? As in, what specific portion of his economic plan did not sit right with you?

You are angered that he promised that he would not raise taxes...then came to the hard realization that this was impossible to do? By that reasoning (that a President broke a promise), you should hate every President that ever served this nation.

He could have...by letting Iraq conquer and keep Kuwait for all time.

Quote:
He also spawned the likes of Bush Jr. and Jeb Bush
I have to say that this is by far, one of the most ridiculous reasons to hate anyone....because you don't like their children?

To think that either Jimmy Carter or George H.W. Bush rank as the worst president is risible. A mere brief comparison of the historical record of Franklin Pierce, James Buchanon, Andrew Johnson or Warren Harding to Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush make Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush candidates for Mt. Rushmore.
