The worst President ever?
Doubting Thomas offers her press veteranÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 Ã¢â‚¬” fear of looking unpatriotic, fear of asking questions, just fear. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have,Ã¢â‚¬Â she said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“lost our way.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Thomas believes we have chosen to promote democracy with bombs instead of largess while Congress Ã¢â‚¬Å“defaults,Ã¢â‚¬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, Ã¢â‚¬Å“You sound worried.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“This is the worst president ever,Ã¢â‚¬Â she said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“He is the worst president in all of American history.Ã¢â‚¬Â The woman who has known eight of them wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t joking.” [Blog Left]
