BLAME BUSH HE BROKE IT. Obama and America has every right to blame Bush for the condition of this country today. He took office with the biggest surplus in history and left office with the biggest deficit in history. Leaving the biggest unemployed and growing, spent the surplus and created the biggest deficit, two wars to be paid for by you children and grand children, the largest number illegal aliens, and our name has become mud among the nations. Set the scene for terrorist. He is responsible for debt your children and grand children will be paying for their entire future. Obama or future presidents may never fix what Bush broke it. Obama is during the best he can, in spite of the opposition and the enormity of the mess he was left with. Presidential scholars: Bush is the worst president of the modern era, bottom five of all time. Think Progress Presidential scholars: Bush is the worst president of the modern era, bottom five of all time. Today, just one year after leaving office, the former president has found himself in the bottom five at 39th rated especially poorly in handling the economy, communication, ability to compromise, foreign policy accomplishments and intelligence. Rounding out the bottom five are four presidents that have held that dubious distinction each time the survey has been conducted: Andrew Johnson, James Buchanan, Warren G. Harding, and Franklin Pierce.
