This is in response to the recent letter by Karl Hadley calling President Obama the "worst president ever." Give me a break! In my book, the worst president ever was George W. Bush and a lot of historians agree. When he came into office we had a surplus which he quickly blew and put us into debt. He got us into a war in Iraq for no reason at all. Weapons of mass destruction? There weren't any. As a result, some 5,000 Americans died, tens of thousands wounded and crippled and a massive debt.
He also got rid of Saddem Hussein and now the country is self-destructing. Saddem was a bad guy but he kept the country stable. Sunnis and Shiites were kept apart and Christians could worship in peace. Now they fear for their lives and there are constant bombings and assassinations. The country is close to civil war. This is Bush's "democracy" and a result of Mission Accomplished.
Obama may not be perfect, but he is trying and never will have the shameful record of George W. Bush.
