5. George W. Bush
It didn’t matter if you loved or hated George W. Bush, you had to stand back and laugh at him and his antics. Not only is little Bush one of the most disliked Republican Presidents, he also carries the distinction of one of the least successful. One only needs to take a look at a few of the things that occurred during George W. Bush’s presidency to see how terrible he really was. Bush completely mishandled the economy, he got us involved in the Iraq War for his own gains, He completely dropped the ball in the way relief efforts were carried out during Hurricane Katrina, and he jumped the gun after the 911 attacks without fully investigating who was behind those atrocities. If the American public needed more proof of Bush’s ineffectiveness as President, they could look at the way he shackled the United States with the misnamed USA PATRIOT Act. Bush gave us the Department of Homeland Security, the Military Commissions Act, and also illegally seized and two American citizens without a trial. Bush expunged Posse Comitatus in America, illegally invaded sovereign nations Iraq and Afghanistan, and created the preemptive war doctrine that guides America’s foreign policy. George W. Bush’s failure on 9/11 is monumental. His administration was inept in responding to 9/11.
This list of the worst Republican Presidents in the history of USA stands to show that there is still room at the top. If everything falls into place, Donald Trump will be able to cause more destruction in four years than these former Republican presidents combined. This time four years from now or maybe sooner, Trump should etch his name in stone as perhaps the worst of the worst in American President history.
