I never thought I’d see the day when liberals would be vigorously defending Ronald Reagan, but that is just what we have now in the ongoing discussions of whether George W. Bush is the Worst. President. Ever.
I have to agree with Schmitt and Marshall, Reagan was a far better president than Bush. GW will one day take his place in the pantheon of really bad presidents such as Grant, Buchanan, Harding, Coolidge, (Andrew) Johnson, Pierce and so on. While some would argue that he has still not sunk to the level of Buchanan or Grant, I think there is no question that he is the worst president of the 20th and 21st Centuries.
