Dumbest President--Ever!

Okay, you're no friend of George Bush, you voted against him twice, you've opposed nearly every thing he's done as President, you detest him and his politics. But you've thought it was laying it on a little heavy when people started calling him the worst President ever. After all, there is some stiff competition--Richard Nixon, Warren Harding, James Polk (Mexican American war), Grover Cleveland (suppressed the Pullman strike), James Buchanan, and Franklin Pierce.

Well, whether he's the worst or not, he certainly appears to be the dumbest and most incompetent.

According to a recent NY Times article, Bush is being interviewed by author Robert Draper. There is a simply amazing passage in the article

Mr. Bush acknowledged one major failing of the early occupation of Iraq when he said of disbanding the Saddam Hussein-era military, "The policy was to keep the army intact; didn't happen."

But when Mr. Draper pointed out that Mr. Bush's former Iraq administrator, L. Paul Bremer III, had gone ahead and forced the army's dissolution and then asked Mr. Bush how he reacted to that, Mr. Bush said, "Yeah, I can't remember, I'm sure I said, 'This is the policy, what happened?' " But, he added, "Again, Hadley's got notes on all of this stuff," referring to Stephen J. Hadley, his national security adviser.

"I can't remember." One of the most fateful decisions of his Presidency and Bush can't remember! He didn't have enough "leadership" to make sure that his decisions were implemented. Dumbest President. Ever
