The worst President ever?
Doubting Thomas offers her press veteranâ€™s take on state of presidency
Dean of US press corps Helen Thomas calls Bush the worst president ever; here’s an excerpt: “She seemed to have sympathy and affection for everyone but George W. Bush, a man who she said is rising on a wave of 9-11 fear â€” fear of looking unpatriotic, fear of asking questions, just fear. â€œWe have,â€ she said, â€œlost our way.â€
Thomas believes we have chosen to promote democracy with bombs instead of largess while Congress â€œdefaults,â€ Democrats cower and a president controls all three branches of government in the name of corporations and the religious right.
As she signed my program, I joked, â€œYou sound worried.â€ â€œThis is the worst president ever,â€ she said. â€œHe is the worst president in all of American history.â€ The woman who has known eight of them wasnâ€™t joking.” [Blog Left]
