Is George W. Bush the worst President ever? Part 5 of 5

For the last 4 posts we have been exploring the claim that George W. Bush is the worst President of the United States ever.  I am tired of this conversation now.  I may add more topics to grade George W. Bush but I think this is a good list for now.  So, how did he do?  Lets give the short report card.  See the earlier posts if you want to understand the reason behind each grade.

9/11 – A – 4.0
Anthrax – A – 4.0
Afghanistan invasion – A – 4.0
Afghanistan occupation – D – 1.0
Al Qaida – C – 2.0
Preventing terrorism – C  – 2.0
We are wimps – A – 4.0
Libya – A – 4.0
Africa – B – 3.0
Economy –  C – 2.0
Corporate governance –  B – 3.0
Iraq solution – C – 2.0
Iraq invasion – A – 4.0
Iraq occupation – D – 1.0
Israel – B – 3.0
Palestine – D – 1.0
Iran – not sure – no GPA
North Korea – C – 2.0
World opinion – no grade matters – no GPA

One could argue that not all of these factors should be weighted evenly but that would be a huge argument.  Depending on your political bent you would rank Wimps differently than the next guy compared to Africa or Libya or Palestine.  I don’t want to engage in that argument (at least today) so I will factor each category evenly since every one of these is the MOST important to someone.

Average GPA is a 2.71 – a solid C+.  This hardly seems like the grade of the worst President ever.  So based on this, we must assume that he isn’t the worst President and future historians will appropriately place him somewhere in the middle compared to his peers.

I am done with this topic for now but I reserve the right to rant more on it someday.
