  1. I got this from another board and found it to be very interesting. To all the Bush bashers on ET, these statistics really put it in perspective. Note the part about Clinton.

    Worst president in U.S. history?

    The following appeared in the local
    paper in Ft. Worth, TX. as a letter to
    the editor. It correctly puts things in perspective:

    "Liberals claim President Bush
    shouldn't have started this war. They
    complain about his prosecution of it.
    One liberal recently claimed Bush was
    the worst president in U.S. history.

    Let's clear up one point: We didn't
    start the war on terror. Try to
    remember, it was started by terrorists
    on 9/11.

    Let's look at the "worst" presidents and
    mismanagement claims.

    FDR led us into World War II. Germany
    never attacked us: Japan did. From
    1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an
    average of 112,500 per year.

    Truman finished that war and started one in Korea, North Korea never
    attacked us.
    >From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of 18,333 per year.

    John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam
    conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us.

    Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire.
    >From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost,
    an average of 5,800 per year.

    Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent, Bosnia never
    attacked us. He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three
    times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on multiple

    In the two years since terrorists
    attacked us, President Bush has
    liberated two countries, crushed the
    Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put nuclear
    inspectors in Libya, Iran and North
    Korea without firing a shot, and
    captured a terrorist who slaughtered
    300,000 of his own people. We lost 600
    soldiers, an average of 300 a year.

    Bush did all this abroad while not
    allowing another terrorist attack at
    home. "Worst president in history" OR
    history will record our Commander in
    Chief as one of America's greatest leaders?

    Wise up and give me a break . . ."
