george w. bush likes to say that history will judge him differently than how we do in today's time.
i agree with him on that, the idea that you can't judge a president until long after his term is over.
but here's an incredibly well-researched article from "rolling stone". it's written by a leading historian using opinions and information from a wide swatch of historians from every party, leaning and ilk who informs us that, with what we already know and have seen, we're living through a momentous era in american history - that of the worst president ever. and that's sad, very sad.
one who doesn't learn from past mistakes - like not caring about the consequences of his political appointments. like, oh i don't know, taking the guy who was in charge of one of the president's biggest political mistakes that he has been unmercifully vilified for - the wiretapping and spying on americans - and then naming him as the new cia director, as if nobody would notice.
well, we get what we vote for.
