Memo to Bush: Authenticity doesn’t count

George W. Bush validates his presidency by saying that he stood by his beliefs even when they were unpopular. Ok.

But here’s a news flash for #43: It’s not enough to do what you think is right. It’s also important that you actually be right.

In fact, being unassailably convinced that you’re right is what the rest of us call “having a closed mind.”

Worst. President. Ever.

  1. In fact, being unassailably convinced that you’re right is what the rest of us call “having a closed mind.”

    Actually, I think another thing to call it is “delusional,” a polite word for “insane.”

  2. Umm, regardless of how you rate Bush, he isn’t on the same level of awesomely bad as:

    — Woodrow Wilson: perhaps the worst President in terms of civil rights ever.
    — James Buchanan – fiddled while the south organized the confederacy

    And before you start waxing idealistic about Wilson, go look at his actual record on things like speech and dissent. Under Wilson, people like Olbermann (et. al.) were jailed. Under Bush, they got rich.
