Bush Legacy? One Historian Makes The Argument For "Worst President Ever"

Historian Sean Wilentz has a piece in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone which argues the case that historians may look back on George W. Bush as the worst president ever.

"George W. Bush's presidency appears headed for colossal historical disgrace. Barring a cataclysmic event on the order of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, after which the public might rally around the White House once again, there seems to be little the administration can do to avoid being ranked on the lowest tier of U.S. presidents. And that may be the best-case scenario. Many historians are now wondering whether Bush, in fact, will be remembered as the very worst president in all of American history."
