"This is the Worst President Ever"

Via Radio Free Blogistan, Helen Thomas, White House correspondent since, hmmm, forever, on our current president:

As veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas signed my program Thursday evening at the Society of Professional Journalists' annual awards banquet, I said, "First time I ever asked a reporter for an autograph."

"Thank you, dear," she said, patting my arm. "Don't lose heart." ...

As she signed my program, I joked, "You sound worried."

"This is the worst president ever," she said. "He is the worst president in all of American history."

The woman who has known eight of them wasn't joking.

This shouldn't come as a complete shock. Thomas has already written and spoken of her concerns about the Bush administration.

Liberals will see this as the wisdom of a legendary reporter who has made it her business to know eight presidents. Conservatives will see it as the senile rambling of an elderly laughingstock. As for me, being neither, I'm still considering it.

She's right!

I thought George Will was more correct when, speaking of Bill Clinton, said, "He's not the worst President ever but he's the worst person to have ever been President"

And again, the first line from the fifth column is to attack Bill Clinton. I could set my watch to this if I hadn't had to hock it due to the horrible state of the economy. It is my firm belief that if Bush were found to be a pedophile, these undereducated rightwingers would claim it was the kid's fault for leading him on.
